More and Less. Or, Is It Supposed To Be Less or More? Musical Theme. An Open Invitation to Geese and More. Less War desired.

More and Less

Hm…ahhh yes, about that…more and less idea–hmm that’s a wide open invitation. This selection has gone through several incarnations from the wretched to the sublime–sort of –well, Calling All Angels is sublime, isn’t it? It’s not here. ONE got me going in another direction entirely, but this isn’t quite jelly by any means. The entire value concept of 1 the number impressed itself upon my grey matter long enough to get an evolution to unity.  Then, well, things took a few detours.  Mental distractions abound. The range here is from the individual to the national to the global–ha. Is that crazy or what? Plus, there are geese. Now, I don’t want to get into it about why those geese and their song are here. They are. Live with it. Accept it. Once they found their way into this blogcasa, they refused to leave. I refuse to herd them out. So the geese are here to stay. That’s all there is to it, folks. I like them. Of course you can argue that this is a Music Theme about More and Less and that you don’t see or hear how those geese qualify.  Make it easy on all of us and just consider them in the More category. Okay? They add a certain nonsensical ambiance which I require at the moment. Give them time and they’ll grow on you too. I’m sure of it.

Now I’m fairly certain the Mores and Lesses are self-explanatory. If they’re not, please feel free to place an inquiry in the comments boxes below the posting. Yes, down there. No, you don’t have to go to Australia to get down under the post. But you can if you really feel the need.


More love, compassion and kindness.  No geese, just a little hound.

More unity.  Geese? Nope.

More unity.  No geese. That’s okay.

The voice of Unity by Sherten

Grey Buffalo’s Tibetan Music Channel


More and Less — More of this action and Less of the need for change. Yes, Less war and Less power to those who create war. The geese don’t stand a chance against warmongers–or do they?

Think music can change the world? We think so.

More Please.  Why? Do you really have to ask? If you do, then that’s a problem. Geese + Music + urban landscape = 🙂

More unity aka teamwork  –and More laughter. I hope folks get the idea of the effectiveness of unified group action. If not, go directly to the geese.


More positive action and Less need for such action. No geese here. Yet. Well, there could be geese farming in store for some of these young people. I guess. But I honestly don’t know.

Write Myself A Song



Less, less, less all around. Oh 1989 may seem outdated to some folks, but I think memories need refreshing just as much as computer pages.  The organizers of this bid for freedom paid a high price in general. So much for the free world . . . .. Geese are leaving this to the Peking ducks.

Tiananmen Square

Pictorial slide show showing the events up to and of June 4th 1989, set to “Hymn To The Fallen” by John Williams.


Less of all the issues regarding the handling of this event. I think the video maker is very clear about those issues. Offended? Well, isn’t that the point? These aren’t the only people left to hang out to dry by the people who ought to help them.  They represent so many others around the world affected by callous indifference of their government leaders.  Geese are steering clear for the moment.

Hurricane Katrina Song

Hurricane song by Allen Watty- with Images of Hurricane Katrina Victims


Guess what the Less is.  Guess what the More is. No, it’s not those synchronized beats of the musical and violent kind.  Geese? Not so much. But the ones I’ve met have always been willing to bite for food–or what they want to be food.

More regional unity through music.  We’re back to some oneness. Right? No, the geese have no vote here.

La Tierra Del Olvido   ~ Playing for Change

PlayingForChange – Today we are proud to share a new video titled, “La Tierra Del Olvido” (The Land of The Forgotten), featured on our PFC 2 CD/DVD. This video features over 75 musicians across the country of Colombia. Throughout our journey we have learned that music is the greatest tool for healing broken countries, cultures and hearts. With this video we set our to unite and inspire the people of Colombia so they can move forward from years of conflict and create a positive future. Listen to the music, see the smiling faces and remember we are going to make it as a human race!! One Love, Mark

Okay, Mark, the geese and I will entertain some hope for the human race while listening to Playing for Change.


More, more, more — no music, well a little,  just Urban Farming Guys in Action showing what CAN be done. Yes, it’s not just a world of abstract possibilities. It’s a world of concrete manifestation too. That’s why the Urban Farming Guys are ‘here’.  When they make a music video I’ll share it.  Yeah, um, do they do geese? I’ll check.

    Geese! Who knew? A great way to weave the theme!

    • December 14, 2013 at 2:31 pm

      Who knew indeed! They just invaded my brain-case and refused to exit. I do wonder if their owner ever played music for them to listen to as I imagined. Hello, Deborah. 🙂

    Wow. I think an organized training effort with the geeses could yield an army worthy of taking on the warmongers. We should work on that.

    I was on the bad side of Katrina (East). Not like Nawlins, but then we don’t live below sea level with a massive lake to the North. It was scary at any rate. 95º, no power for 7 days…routine hurricane aftermath.

    ☆☆☆☆☆ Very well rounded, good message, geese rule. : )

    • December 9, 2013 at 8:12 pm

      well ( O ) rounded Merci, Johnny.
      I would think being anywhere near Katrina would be scary. I’ve been without power for 7 days and counting– ice storm aftermath. Upside, everything in the fridge cold be kept cold outside. Downside, cooking on a grill outside when it’s winter. Did you cook outside when you had no power, Johnny?

      I think you’re right, we should enlist the geese to deal with the warpartiers.

      Shhhhhh, don’t tell the geese they’ve got the upper hand or they’ll honker us all.

        Whenever a hurricane comes, I decide on fight or flight 48 hours before landfall. If it is cat 3 or higher we leave the area. We stayed for Katrina and I think it was a mistake. We cooked on the grill, made daily ice runs and tried to keep the baby cool.

        I was planning on organizing the local goose population so they could take the message up North in the Spring. I’ll wear a crash helmet and will not turn my back on them. I’ll let you know how it turns out. “Honker” -great word.

      • December 10, 2013 at 5:50 am

        Please keep a musical record of your geese venture. I think I picked the Honker word up from Bear. )

        Yeah staying for a hurricane does not sound like a great agenda.
        But you’re still ‘here’ so that’s good.

    Beautiful, Eva. Beautiful. Thank you.

    • December 8, 2013 at 8:49 pm

      I hope you found the funny funny as I did. Or at least funny for yourself, Bear. 🙂

      • December 8, 2013 at 9:21 pm

        You kept the whole serious thing light and upbeat. You carry us through Tiananmen. Amazing. 🙂

        When I was in the 8th grade, we lived in Lakeview, Oregon, just north of an alkali lake named Goose Lake which straddles the California border. The Jr High School’s team was named THE GOSLINGS. The boys hated that. However it was to not so silly as the pun the High School was stuck with. Their sports teams were THE HONKERS. That associations always enters my consciousness when Geese are about. There are 30 – 50, or so, Canadian Geese that are wintering quite close by, just under one fourth mile, from the house. They fly west to the Okefenokee in the morning and back in the evening, honking all the way. 🙂 For any foreigners: honkers are also another term for a moggie or a large wad of mucus or very bad throat devil depending on what you are familiar with.

        Eva, I do like the penguins in that cute commercial, too. 🙂

        Merci Bear.
        Penguins, ants and crabs–who knew?!
