Life in the pursuit of Areté

Recently I’ve read a couple of articles and seen a few charts about the “Death of the Music Industry”.   By chance I also saw a question on Quora about why rock music today is so bad (not my assessment but that of the asker of the question).  I think both of these topics are very much by-products of the music industry’s evolution.  The Internet has increased the velocity of change in the music industry however this change began just about the same time the Internet was invented, back in 1969.

Winter in New York (by readyforthenet)

Winter in New York City was very mild, unlike last year. I wanted to transform the memories of the snow of winter 2010/11 from the painful to the inspirational through this video. I hope you enjoy!

The photoart is all mine, however the music is not. The music is from Enya and the song is called Lothlórien.

Please feel free to share and comment.

As much of a loss this is, his legacy will continue to live on.
