This has one of my patented slow dreamy intros.

Quantcast

When young Albert was about 5 years of age and sick in bed, he was brought a gift by his father.  The gift was a compass, with the needle pointing north as if by some magical force.  The invisible magnetism awoke within Albert a driving fascination with the forces of nature that would spur his work for the rest of his life.

Wonder

words and music by William Belote               © 2009 ASCAP

Magnetic needle      Moving with certainty     Pointing in a direction
Watching and waiting       Perceiving observantly       Quiet time introspection
Oh, how I wonder     Of “something behind things,      Something deeply hidden”

The sea of sensations        Objects and reflections        Often deceiving in words
But I can tell Maja              My new perceptions          Secrets and songs of the birds
Oh, how I wonder     Of “something behind things,      Something deeply hidden”

Age twelve – plane geometry     Here are proofs in perfect lucidity
All around – beauty and mystery   Some things can be known
Some things I must know

This school is a factory         Rewarding memory           Killing my inspiration
So God bless the library      And teachers with empathy        Knowledge lives in rotation
Oh, how I wonder     Of “something behind things,      Something deeply hidden”
