So, I head over to a concert in an art gallery with a show by an artist I had never heard of just to hear my favorite musician Louis Volare….

and there at the top, as I listen to music, I am drawn…I mean sucked into the absolute hypnotic mystery of this one photograph. He’s called the Haserot Angel….and he sits at a cemetery somewhere in Ohio.

The photographer, whom I only know as Eidolon Dreamscape in Second LIfe and Bittermuppet on Flickr has captured him, this mysterious crying angel in such a way that I myself am drawn to tears. Now I do not cry. I very rarely cry. But this picture (not the one here, but the one in Second LIfe…very similar to this but with the wings showing)…it actually made me feel for this ….statue!

Second life, real life, whatever. My real body was crying real tears and still is. Call it synchronicity or coincidence. It’s an incredible thing.

I am humbled by it…..drawn to my knees.

Good job, Eidolon!

Second life musician Louis Volare, (aka Louis Landon) has posed a challenge to his SL friends, and real live counterpoints. He is offering a daily free download of a brand new performance, a daily improv, for those of us who wish the war in Iraq to end. In the name of peace, he plays freely, every day. All he asks is that we share this gift with as many people as possible.

Peace Revolution

HIs music is so powerful it has brought me to tears….on more than one occasion. Here are his words on his gift to world peace:

  • I have decided to add a new improv to my MySpace page every day until the war in Iraq is over and our troops come home. It will be a free download. When possible, I will have a very short concert at the Peace Revolution! Center and will perform the improv that I will post at 9 pm SLT. If you take advantage of the free download, all I ask in return is that you e-mail the music out to as many people as possible and that you ask them to pray for peace. Together we can change the world.
    Love and Peace Always and Everywhere,
    Louis Volare aka Louis Landon
