Your two word title is an ocean of feeling, confirmed by your music.

Good stuff! I like the vaguely Asian--MidEastern sound of it.

Hey, thanks for listening and for your comments. I composed this about three weeks ago but hadn't come up with a title. I tried a few ideas in my mind but they seemed too trite and unrelated. A couple days ago, Josh, my a 15-year old friend - who improvises tai chi-inspired sword dancing to my cello banjo music - told me a song lyric he liked:

"holding on too long is just the fear of letting go."

I thought, letting go, that's the trick setup.

THat's another fine tune Paul. If I were one to meditate, I'd do it to that tune or something like it.

Thanks Rick. Maybe we're meditating all the time - we just don't know it.

Paul, you take me to places I hadn't yet imagined with your playing - always an adventure, and always a delight.

Thanks Jim. Raga like. Yes, Indian classical music is a strong influence for me.

Debs. Thank you very much for the kind words. That means a lot to me. If we can shine a light for each other - through imagination, adventure and delight - then we are sitting in a very blessed situation.

Well said Paul... great playing, you really allow that cello-banjo to express the fullness of it's voice.
A lovely reflective quality indeed. Cheers!
