    Old man's days

    I am qualified for the "old man's title". This is almost minimalist. I apologize for posting it. Some way trying to describe the day to day problems, pains, waiting's, little pleasures comings with old age. Mine too.

    Marvelous. Another beautiful piece from you Ted, the master of melody and emotions. In this tune you build up an atmosphere so irresistible to tears and deep feelings using a perfect set of balanced instruments forming a true drama.
    No need to apologize, musical tears are happy tears.

    Hi Ted,

    That is proof how simple beauty can be. No nonsense, no demonstration of whatever kind of virtuoso-like performance, no bravoure... Just and only pure emotion filled with endless melancholy. Whether written by an old man or not, it is the craft of musical talent, of expression of inner feelings by a musical poet, which you absolutely are!

    Thanks for sharing this gem,

    I recognize these little things of older age, but when put to music, it is another story, filled with joy and resignation. Wonderful piece.

    I thought that it was so bad, nobody liked it. Then you guys this morning, as I am departing to Mexico tomorrow morning, wrote so kindly, with much musical and personal understanding, you made this old fool tear up.
    Thanks, and thank all of you

    Nice harp work, Mister Ted.

    The flute vibrato sounds very un-natural. What sampled flute are you using?

    Except for the flute, everything sounds good.

    Best regards.

    You capture a mood and emotional state very well.. This perfectly states what i have been feeling lately.. Having just turned 69, I guess I'd term myself as a 'young' oldster.. And although I feel I've aged pretty well, (still relatively healthy, thru 2 strokes, but doing good).

    The mood of your piece perfectly captures the melancholy I sometimes feel, at having so many memories (good, great, bad, sad, etc). This music makes a very distinct statement, without being all 'decorated'. I admire that you can get right to an emotional point, without 'clutter'.

    Hi Ted,

    Your music was peaceful with philosophical resignation for me. When you see so much of life what is most important are the quiet times. One is lucky to have all their faculties and memories so they are able to feel these emotions in the golden years. My mother has not been so lucky in this respect but she seems quite happy with what she has. Maybe she is lucky also.


    I hope you have had a nice trip back to Mexico.
