Ahchan - A Song






I started a new blog for music lovers called:


I had started this as a separate entity as each of my compositions are copyrighted.

They will still be for free use by the public...
however, only for non commercial uses.



This makes two blogs for music lovers.
My other music blog is called:


This is for music I transcribe, interpret, and/or transpose from established music.

All the music here is for free use for all.



Now...
I mention this new blog because my very first completed composition
I had named after my son's nickname....Ahchan.

The other day...
I was working on a song for my mother...
when this tune kept playing in my head
(it is my own tune which I had played when I was just trying out different 
note runs on my Bass Flute while lying in bed).

Since the tune was already in my head...
I completed the song in a few hours.

It is a simple and playful tune...
and it reminded me of when Alex was still a toddler.


You may also reach my other blogs by clicking on the appropriate links 
on the upper right portion of this page under the title:

My Other Blogs



Anyway...
this is the song I call Ahchan.

If you play music...
I think it is perfect to play for toddlers...
as it is short and fun.


Again...this is my first composition.

I will eventually be making a song for each member of my family.

I have also ordered a home recording studio set up.

I intend to put up sound recordings and/or video of me playing each of my compositions...
and later on...
my transcriptions.

Driving Practice / More Beautiful Sunsets


Song:  Theme From The Movie:  Musa



The other day...
Alex drove Northwest to another small park near the ocean.

It was part of his daily driving practice.

He drove on the highway...
narrow mountain roads...
in the city...
and in residential neighborhoods.

He is gaining very valuable driving experience.





They had walked around for a bit.

Afterwards...
Alex drove them back home.


There are ducks and geese all around their condo area.

As it was nearing sunset...
they walked out to one of their favorite sunset spots just a couple of minutes walk
from their condo.










---------------------


And...
this was last night's beautiful sunset.



Alex walking to the sunset viewing area.









Everyday is a good day for Alex.

Alex is having a good time...
while still learning...
everyday.

Alex Hiking At A Nearby Park


Song:  Drops Of Jupiter

Group:  Train


Alex and his mother enjoyed a neighborhood park.










On the day after...
Alex and his mother went to a nearby park to hike to the top of one of the hills.











His mother said that they were so tired on the way up...
that they had to stop several times to rest...
as the trail was steep in many places.

Alex and his mother skipped today's walk...
as their legs were still a little sore  :)


I will be visiting them next month...
as there will be a parent / student gathering at UC Berkeley for a couple of days.

And no...
I shall not be going on any hikes...
especially this one  :)

Alex's Driving Practice / Ocean Park


Song:  Above All

Artist:  Helen Jane Long






Yesterday...
as part of Alex's daily driving practice...
he drove to another ocean park not too far from their home.

He and his mother then got their exercise walking around at the park.

His mother said they had a wonderful outing on that day.

She had also said that they have about 5 miles of hiking paths there...
and that they will fully explore that area next time.











How efficient of his mother.

She had combined Alex's driving practice with their daily exercise  :)



There are two things which make practice so effective:

Make it enjoyable...
and do it daily.

Alex's First Coffee


Song:  Driving My Life Away

Artist:  Eddie Rabbit


Alex is driving on his permit at his new home.

His mother takes him for driving practice everyday.

He had one scary incident yesterday.

He had the right of way...
yet...
another driver had cut in front of him.

My wife had seen the situation developing...
and she had warned Alex of the situation unfolding.

Alex had averted an accident be braking in time.

He also had some similar incidents while I was teaching him how to drive
here in Reno.


Alex is a very quick learner...
and he is naturally cautious in nature.

It is not him I am worried about...
it is all of the other drivers which scare me.

You want to know the inner nature of a person?

Watch how they drive.

Drivers have a sense of autonomy in their car...
and so, they act with more freedom from societal constraints
(undeservedly so).

A person who runs stop signs and lights...
is extremely egocentric...
extremely selfish.

He is also not too bright.

He has no foresight.

But...
enough on this.


Yesterday...
Alex tried his first coffee.

It was a white mocha (not real coffee anyway :)

Alex did not like it.
After tasting it...
he put it down...
and later...
just threw the rest away  :)





I am sure once he starts UC Berkeley in the Spring...
he and black coffee are going to become friends.

He will have many a late night study session  :)
