How Do You Say Goodbye?

Description
How do you say goodbye? To a friend, a loved one, to a length of days? Not really a year at all. This invention of the calendar compartmentalizes an idea of a complete revolution around the sun from some point in space to another undetermined point in space. We connect memories, ideas and emotion to these pages on a wall. Some moments of the greatest grief ever experienced while splashing rains of joy somehow wash the hurt away. Love is what polishes these stones. A wanting, longing desire for you to have the best year ever brings prayers of great abundance. To you. I miss you.


Sitting at home - a quiet New Years Eve...
and I needed to write this song...
one last song of the 'year'

2010.... what can I say? Not so bad really.
Could have been worse.
Sorry everyone was so out of sorts.

2011

Thank you, Andy
for putting things in perspective and for the hopeful prayers. 2010 brought lots of bad news- people close to me breaking up, dying, addicted, still unsaved...May this new year bring joy and peace to all. Lovely introspective mood, yet has hope.

so sorry about that - I listened to the song just after I posted it and I needed to fix something... I was trying for a 2010 post, but it turned out to be a 2011. I think Mr Frip would be amused by your reference. Tell ya the truth i it sent me to the dictionary and it was perplexing for quite some time... he he

A melancholy reflection,
of a year gone by, Andy.

It was a wonderful year in some important ways for me. One of the ways was getting to know you and Maureen, and all the others great MacJammers at the Texas meet up.

But this piece rings a chord (no pun intended) with me on a personal level. Thanks for posting this one last song for 2010, my friend. It is indeed a beautifully done piece.

Beautiful reflective song Andy
Last night I found myself thinking of those no longer here at year's end. Started earlier in the day when I remembered always calling my folks on New Year's Eve from wherever I was at the time. Each year has it's ups and downs - all in all it was very interesting journey - just the next step.

I have had similar thoughts which led up to this song. I miss my mom too among others. The tradition in these parts is to cook up a big pot of black-eyed peas for goodluck on New Years Day. I remember one year I called her and she asked me if I had my BEP's and I told her no.... she said, 'well, I guess it'll be allright.' She had a way of making me feel better about things. So, onto the next step. A step or two together would be a good thing.

bye
hey andy
wow....and there was i thinking you were this sax player. this is really cool. it's kind of minimalist yet rich. very much reminded me of early joni mitchell (whom i adore). loved the little electronic sounds at 2.46...or maybe it was the same piano with an effect. it doesn't go places, but it doesn't matter because it's the ride that matters and this is a great ride...a gently haunting ride.

beautiful
The piano is so clear and beautiful. The intro gives me a sense of 'space' somehow. Lovely piece... well done. I felt that the synths end a bit suddenly after the intro. It may be interesting to carry them on, very quietly throughout? Just an idea. A fantastic listen through my headphones though. Thanks.

Thanks for the cool comment. You are right...The synths may have covered some of the sparseness of the song... but then it seemed to fit my feelings at 11:30 PM on New Years Eve.

This is
such a well composed piece because it does exactly what you intended it to do. Mostly, it is about reviewing and accepting, turning the page but leaving the book open. Lessons learned are carried forward to enhance days to come. Thank you.

It's interesting the way people deal with the end of a year.
It's those good memories that reduce the impact of the bad ones. Enjoyed the song... it does sound like the year is comming to an end in a tranquil way... waiting to pass the final moments.

How Do You Say Goodbye
Yes......I know I'm a little late here on this song, but better late than never. It is beautiful. Sad, but yet just sitting here listening to this, makes me feel at peace. This song means a lot to me as you can probably tell with all that's going on here. I doubt you can ever really say "goodbye" to someone you love because they will always be in your heart. Thanks Andy
