untitled

Every year I post my 'top 5' music+video experiences. 

My selections usually have
excellent-to-superlative music/sound,
an exemplary-or-masterful video,
and,

I'm working on this year's list - of maybe three items/songs/videos.

As usual, Jesse is working on something new, even though he really doesn't owe us anything.

Here are two beautiful words

1. ephemeral 
2. ethereal 

What do they mean? 

The first is brief in terms of time - here now and soon gone, while the second may be hard to pin down in terms of location or space. 

The first may be an attribute of concrete things, or in religious language "the things of this world" while the second may describe the things of God, or of Spirit. 

In the language of physics, the first represents the particle and the second is the wave... 
in other words, matter and light.
