Take some time out beside a pure mountain stream as it flows through the depths of the forest. Clear waters gurgle over smooth pebbles, past moss-covered rocks, to tumble over small cascades.
As you sit quietly beside a sparkling waterfall and breathe in the crisp air, frogs call softly nearby, sunshine filters through the trees, and birdsong echoes through the forest.
from "Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen"
Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, baritone
NHK Symphony, Paul Kletzki, conductor
Filmed at Salle Pleyel, Paris, 24 October 1960
Fischer-Dieskau has always had an encyclopaedic knowledge of other singers. "It is remarkable when people say how different I am from earlier singers," he says, "because I overlapped with singers like Heinrich Schlusnus and Erna Berger and I was not conscious of being different in approach. On the contrary, I tried to be like them, to be as perfect as I thought they were."
--from an interview with Martin Kettle on his 80th birthday, at Guardian Unlimited Arts

Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau sings Mahler Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, song 2 of the cycle, "Ging heut Morgen übers Feld" ("I Went This Morning over the Field")
The second movement, "Ging heut Morgen übers Feld" ("I Went This Morning over the Field"), is the happiest movement of the work. Indeed, it is a song of joy and wonder at the beauty of nature in simple actions like birdsong and dew on the grass. "Is it not a lovely world?" is a refrain.
However, the Wayfarer is reminded at the end that despite this beauty, his happiness will not blossom anymore now that his love is gone. This movement is orchestrated delicately, making use of high strings and flutes, as well as a fair amount of triangle.
The melody of this movement, as well as much of the orchestration, is developed into the 'A' theme of the first movement of the First Symphony.
Ging heut morgen übers Feld,
Tau noch auf den Gräsern hing;
Sprach zu mir der lust'ge Fink:
"Ei du! Gelt? Guten Morgen! Ei gelt?
Du! Wird's nicht eine schöne Welt?
Zink! Zink! Schön und flink!
Wie mir doch die Welt gefällt!"
Auch die Glockenblum' am Feld
Had mir lustig, guter Ding',
Mit den Glöckchen, klinge, kling,
Ihren Morgengruß geschellt:
"Wird's nicht eine schöne Welt?
Kling, kling! Schönes Ding!
Wie mir doch die Welt gefällt! Heia!"
Und da fing im Sonnenschein
Gleich die Welt zu funkeln an;
Alles Ton und Farbe gewann
Blum' und Vogel, groß und Klein!
ist's nicht eine schöne Welt?
Ei du, gelt? Schöne Welt!"
Nun fängt auch mein Glück wohl an?
Nein, nein, das ich mein',
Mir nimmer blühen kann!
I walked across the fields this morning;
dew still hung on every blade of grass.
The merry finch spoke to me:
"Hey! Isn't it? Good morning! Isn't it?
You! Isn't it becoming a fine world?
Chirp! Chirp! Fair and sharp!
How the world delights me!"
Also, the bluebells in the field
merrily with good spirits
tolled out to me with bells(ding, ding)
their morning greeting:
"Isn't it becoming a fine world?
Ding, ding! Fair thing!
How the world delights me!"
And then, in the sunshine,
the world suddenly began to glitter;
everything gained sound and color
in the sunshine!
Flower and bird, great and small!
Is it not a fine world?
Hey, isn't it? A fair world?"
Now will my happiness also begin?
No, no - the happiness I mean
can never bloom!

《好孕臨門》凱瑟琳海格、艾希頓庫奇首度搭擋演出愛情喜劇。美麗輕熟女珍（凱瑟琳海格 飾）遇上了帥氣又風度翩翩的史班瑟（艾希頓庫奇 飾），兩人間的化學反應就像天雷勾動地火般迅速猛烈，閃電結婚後的他們理所當然地認定彼此就是一生摯愛，但他們幸福的小家庭生活卻被一連串的刺殺行動搞得烏煙瘴氣，此時珍才發現自己的理想老公竟然是替政府執行暗殺任務的頭號臥底刺客，結婚後的他們立刻成為各方人馬的刺殺標靶，懸賞他們人頭的獎金已高達數百萬，面對致命威脅的新婚夫妻檔於是展開了與時間賽跑的逃亡之旅，除了必須識破偽裝成好心鄰居甚至怪老頭的刺客外，他們也必須解決被愛沖昏頭後的首度婚姻危機，刺激、爆笑、又充滿各式愛情課題的連環惡鬥正式展開！
Spencer Aimes (Kutcher) is just your average, undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt (Heigl), a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love...and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss. Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage - that is, until the morning after Spencer's 30th birthday. That's when Spencer and Jen learn he's the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbors, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage, manage his in-laws, keep up neighborly appearances ... and just plain survive.
A vacationing woman meets her ideal man, leading to a swift marriage. Back at home, however, their idyllic life is upset when they discover their neighbors could be assassins who have been contracted to kill the couple.

I've uploaded one of my favourite songs called Flight of Icarus from Piece of Mind album (1983).
As the sun breaks, above the ground,
An old man stands on the hill,
As the ground warms, to the first rays of light
A birdsong shatters the still.
His eyes are ablaze,
See the madman in his gaze.
Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly and touch the sun.
Now the crowd breaks and a young boy appears
Looks the old man in the eye
As he spreads his wings and shouts at the crowd
In the name of God my father I fly.
His eyes seem so glazed
As he flies on the wings of a dream,
Now he knows his father betrayed
Now his wings turn to ashes to ashes his grave.
Fly, on your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun,
On your way, like an eagle,
Fly as high as the sun.

While there are a number of really destructive things going on in the world that we all hope we can change, it's easy to lose focus of the many wonderful and uplifting things that are happening all around us. These are some of those things.
