Appalachian Spring

Can you hear it? The musical refrains that play in our minds are a gift. Like remembering words spoken or formulae transcribed, the music comes to us…connected to a place, a memory, a passing thought, or triggered by the light and a mood in the air…the music fills us up and completes a moment. Spring begins with fits and starts, like the variations of the rising and falling terrain of Appalachia, ultimately the snow gives way to blossoming trees and greening valleys…and we hear the song of a thawing mountain stream as it falls off the mountain into spring. Thanks to Aaron Copeland for the musical imagery of Appalachian Spring, animating our silent aerial perspective on the season.
