I’m feeling good now, though not as happy, ;). I have a good reason to do some updates as I’m sharing some nostalgic moments of my goodoldays. I beg your indulgence for posting most of youtube’s rtv, it’s just that most of my blissful moments back then were associated with songs.
This one in particular is a musical theme of a drama we produced during my first year of teaching. More than the pictures are the imprints of happy faces of those who worked hard to stage an inspiring drama, well, written by me of course.. hehehe… It was entitled ‘The voices of the wind’. While there are many versions of this song, from the original to the one I most love, the version of ‘IZ’ a.k.a Israel Kamakawiwo’ole, he’s a Hawaiian singer who sadly died so young because of an inborn weight disorder. His death in 1997 was rather a celebration rather than mourning. He truly has a voice of an angel, that every time I hear him sing just made me chicken skin. His fusion of jazz and reggae is what made his music so outstanding.
One way to ‘nam-namin’ the spirit of this song is to just close your eyes, slouch on your swivel, put your hands behind your head and journey with the chi of the song.
