It is almost 12:30 a.m.

I wrote this song
at about 11:30 p.m.

Is titled 041813b.

Scorched earth
and twisted landscapes.

It all began in the land of Mordor,
near Mount Doom.

There is just something so NOW
about that landscape
and concept.

I just can't seem to
get it out of my head,
as the last several compositions
so well attest.

Tonight I decided to go with D minor.

It is a favorite key of mine
to compose in.

Too much so.

So that I actually avoid writing
in it as a primary key.

But, it is just so perfect
for "scorched earth"
landscape musical descriptions.

So, who am I to argue?

Have to get to bed.

Must be up early
and out the door early.

Hope all is well with all of you
who are so especially
beloved of me.

w/love and 24/7 prayers
for you
and about you

May God bless abundantly ---
