    quiet lightning 

    quiet lightning
    a distant storm
    the city noise drowns out
    what thunder there is
    all i hear is the train
    yards away
    thundering by
    and flashes so bright
    even the city lights
    can’t blind them out
    this street reminds me of Philly
    he said
    red bricks
    and a cheesy mural
    painted on the big garage door
    of the piano warehouse
    where we rehearse
    his one man show
    captivating and inspired
    but out the window
    and the corner of my eye
    quite lightning
    the rumble of the city
    a storm passes by

          commented on Grafediting too just now — the different visual frame gives a slightly different flavor to the read — I believe in cross-posting as an editing tool. 🙂

      Wow, what beautiful work!! 🙂

      Really great vid, too — beautifully scripted, lit, shot, scored and cut (npi)!!

      love, h

      (p.s. Tweet it?? I’m following you, empyrius, Harb, Kavita. I follow rishirichprod, who sent out a tweet for a new music vid this am, and as a result of the tweet, I’ll get the album on iTunes when it’s released. The rishirichprod Twitter page bg promotes the album to which the new music vid is related.)

      Derek, I have nothing but admiration for everything you do and say.

      Thanks, I have a tear in my eye, because it strikes a deep chord,

        Hey Guys
        Thanks, I think I’m going to use youtube to market my work. It’s easy to update and show all my latest work. Gene and I have a long way to go in refining a documentary format but I am having fun with this medium. I have been a documentary junkie forever. It’s not as easy as it looks. I will be putting up a slide show of work soon.

      Dear Derek,

      It is great to see you so creative 🙂

      Enjoyed your video, every minute of it. I guess living in such an environment as yours, with the mountains in the back, etc. surely boosts one’s creativity.

      At least mine does as soon as I see them again (and these are only hills) on holiday.

      Does not mean that I do not like my own (flat) country cause I do very much.

      To me change of environment now and then gives me lots of inspiration.

      It is great seeing you develop into your own marketing manager 🙂

      Lots of success and love from

        Hi Mieke
        So good to here from you. Thank you so much.

        I really am blessed to live in such a beautiful and inspiring place.
        So far I like the idea of a youtube channel as my website. It’s easily updated and most importantly, it’s free. Yo. I believe it will also prove to be more interactive than just a website.
        We’ll see.

        much love and peace to you Mieke
