My Intentions

What craze this posting thing has become. I am not sure if it is something that I am completely comfortable with, but I thought I had to give it a try before I decided it wasn't for me. My initial idea for this blog is to express some interesting thoughts (assuming I have them from time to time) about music, composition, poetry, philosophy or anything else that may pop into my mind that might be of some worth, at least to me. The first of these thoughts (which will be coming soon) is an idea of "what is melody?" I hope to have this up in the next few days so stay tuned if you are at all interested.

On a quick note about the title, it is from one of my favorite poems by e. e. cummings:

who knows if the moon's
a balloon,coming out of a keen city
in the sky-filled with pretty people?
(and if you and i should

get into it,if they
should take me and take you into their balloon,
why then
we'd go up higher with all the pretty people

than houses and steeples and clouds:
go sailing
away and away sailing into a keen
city which nobody's ever visited,where

Spring)and everyone's
in love and flowers pick themselves

- e. e. cummings

so if you are at all interested check back occasionally and hopefully my thoughts will be productive.
