Music Monday flows with Pink Floyd #Bali

Hello from Ubud, Bali.

The past week has been incredible in so many ways. To find inspiration for my writing is one of the reasons I took this trip, and I am so happy I did.

If for no other reason, I’ve confirmed that the sights, sounds, and smells of Bali have to be experienced. There is no possible way I could have breathed the magic of Ubud without being here.

Last night, I went to the Laughing Buddha Bar to decompress after a day of writing, sightseeing, and dinner. It’s a small, live music venue located on Monkey Forest Road, one of the few main arteries in Ubud. An Indonesian band called the Cooltones played rock cover tunes.

They were very good musicians.

Along with Clapton, Hendrix, and Muddy Waters, they also played this song by Pink Floyd.

Oh …. how I wish you were here.

Musical Mondays – David Gilmour

A call to compassion along with musical virtuosity would not be complete without David Gilmour, singer and guitarist for Pink Floyd who lends his name and contributes monetarily to support multiple causes. 

A recent lack of compassion levied against his son was chronicled in an excellent post called Justice and Compassion by author and friend, Les Floyd.

Read it and then listen to the passion of “Wish You Were Here.”
