That was a treat, Kela; thanks!

Very cool, Kela.  Nice to hear you; it sounds great.

It was recorded by the cellists' cell phone and we were all basically sight-reading the animal at rehearsal, so it's not intended to be studio quality or even Youtube quality. And it was commissioned -- it's not my fav song or anything. It does, though, designate a new direction -- a movement toward arranging I've been taking lately. My eyesight is going so I need other artistic venues and means of support besides playing/teaching.

Sorry I have not been contributing lately. The Dark Night has been deepening. But I do remember ya'll, and just wanted ya to know: I'm still kickin.'

Yeah, what theurj said!  i'm glad to hear you're still kickin', kela-ji.

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
