Music is Everywhere


Music is all around us, especially in Nature. I managed to get this photo of a loon on the St. Lawrence the other evening. It wasn't easy as it kept diving and then it would reappear in a different spot. I couldn't keep up!

I love the plaintive sound of a loon's cry. It gives me shivers as it is so haunting and sad. So true what Tolstoy says about music being the shorthand of emotion.

The loon is one of our Canadian symbols and is featured on our dollar coin, affectionately called the Loonie.



As we celebrate Canada's 147th birthday today, it's fitting to listen to the music of the loon, just one of the many beautiful musical sounds in Nature in our glorious country.

  1. Happy Canada Day, Cathy! Thanks for sharing this pic. I had no idea what a loon is and had to look it up. What you said is so true - the best music is found in nature.

  2. True, music is all around us. If we only listen, in silence. Tolstoy's quote is wonderful, and so is the picture. Happy Canada Day, Cat :)

  5. I believe, most of the sounds present in nature have found a way into the music we have been producing so far.
    Happy Canada day!
