donovan's magical songs

donovan is coming to fairfest next month (september 4th), so my daughter elise and i both take to the air together to share our favorite songs that speak of the magic in the world. (we've shared the same tastes in music since she was born)
beatles, maharishi, donovansongs like:

hurdy gurdy man [pictured], atlantis (my mercifully shortened version), celia of the seals (perhaps elise's favorite), the riverman's daughter (a magical tale of romance), the (mysterious tale of a girl's love and transformation into a swan) reedy river, and (david lynch's favorite) season of the witch.

Symphony of SilenceTune in to Writers' Voices this week for the first of two programs on "A Symphony of Silence: An Enlightened Vision," an intimate portrait of some of the pioneers of the Transcendenal Meditation movement.  Today's guests are George A. Ellis, the author of "A Symphony of Silence" who introduced TM into Folsom Prison and other correctional institutions around the world, and his wife, Dominique Ellis, whose influence on this book is obvious in the attention devoted to the feminine and to world cultures.  

Yes, "A Symphony of Silence" is about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, but even more it is the stories of individual lives, and the impact that practicing TM had on the people that Ellis interviewed, from hardened convicts to loving families, from government officials to elderly nuns.  These stories cover almost every facet of human experience, from the mundane to the sublime.
