Reflections on Art and Life

Is Now Not Enough?

Glossolalia Dosia McKayTomorrow I will offer the opening track from my new album “Glossolalia – NeoQuartet plays music of Dosia McKay” for free download. It will be available on Bandcamp at: http://dosiamckay.bandcamp.com/

My wish for you is that you take a pause in your busy day and allow yourself a moment of repose and reflection. “Is Now Not Enough?”, the opening piece of the album, explores the restlessness and insatiability of the human spirit. The same invisible force that propels migrating birds and fish, seems to stir the imagination in search of the ideal and the transcendent, but can it ever be truly found? The music echoes the themes I have explored earlier in my poem entitled “Unfurling”:

Be still my soul
What is your unfurling?
Your trembling?
Your flutter?
What is your ache?
A void that’s ever empty
What is your shape
That I may fill it?
Chords unstrummed?
Songs unsung?
Words unspoken?
Colors unseen?
A flock of geese
Captured in perpetual takeoff
You have startled
The stillness of the pond
Marred it with ripples
Your wings
Water shedding
Gasping for air
Hungrily
Ecstatically
Forcefully
What is your haste?
Is now not enough?
Is here not plenty?
Run, soul, run
For stillness be the death of you
Chase the sun
Fly
