“I’ve learned what ‘classical’ means. It means something that sings and dances through sheer joy of existence.” -Gustav Holst
There are some great, creative works out there that take their inspiration from the amazing natural phenomena of this Universe. While perhaps Gustav Holst's suite, The Planets, is best known for translating the celestial wonders into terrestrial ones, I'd like to share with you the less-well-known song of Ferraby Lionheart,
while I take you through this weekend's wonder.
Also based on the Solar System, it isn't just music that some people choose to express their creativity. In particular, Larry Bell of Bell's Brewery has a new line of beer coming out based on the planets as well: The Planets series of beer!
I've never been able to enjoy classical music, but I've always been able to enjoy classical and modern fine ales.
When I drink them I shan't be raising my glass to Holst, I shall be raising my glass to Ethan for inspiring so many of us to be totally enthralled by our Solar system and our universe.
