THE GREEN MUSIC
Please click to view full screen.
I used to carry music with me, on my treks, stupid idea. Now I don't carry any more. There is enough music in the air, its a state of mind, you accept sounds of nature as music. The surround sound is sheer ecstasy. The birds the elephants or the monkeys may dislike Mozart or Sibelius. or they may like Stravinsky and Sigur Ros, you never know. Perhaps they enjoy each other's sounds. I have seen monkeys sitting very still in a state of absolute concentration. Some times all you hear is the whispering sounds of leaves and none other. No activity whatsoever. They all decide to sit and listen. All of them.
