Grace Buford – Dancing in the Garden of Freedom (Remix by Doxent Zsigmond)

This one brings back good memories 🙂

Those were the times when I went with my friends to a Grace Buford (Cylindrian Rutabaga) live concert in SL. Nothing could beat this. We were promoting Grace’s music and she played our favourite originals. Here is my top favourite, my all-time favourite, remixed by my good friend Doxii. These days, neither Doxii nor Grace nor I frequent SL but we are always happy to catch one of Grace’s rare gigs online.

Dig the stones from the earth
and pile them on the side,
one by one,
Skilfully crafting a wall
to keep the outside on the outside.
Throw away all the the bitter fruit of yesterday
and fertilize the soul with forgiveness
so love can abide in this garden.

And I don’t want to go
from the place I found my soul.
See my freedom dance through the waves of green and gold.

Water the seeds with tears
from the guilt of all those silent years.
How fragile are the first shoots
as they reach for the warmth of the sun
so love will abide in this garden.

Grace Buford on CNN (video)

I have hardly been active in Second Life anymore but I still attend music shows in-world on a regular basis.  My favourite musician is Cylindrian Rutabaga (Grace Buford in RL). I met Cylindrian  about 2 years ago. She’s become a very dear friend, not just because I love her music but because she is such a nice person.

Recently, she was featured in a CNN show. I wasn’t able to post the video here because one of the drawbacks of wordpress is, you’re not allowed to embed external flash objects. However, I can use the built-in youtube player, so good thing the video is available on youtube now. Yay!

For those of you, who can’t view the video in your country check out the original CNN link

 
Here is a snapshot I took of the both of us a while ago. She invited me to relax on her piano while she was giving a concert 😀 If you have a SL account and are interested in a virtual live music performance, send IM to me (Jenilia Congrejo). I’ll add you to Cylindrian’s fan group, so you can receive notices about her future concerts.
