ah sorry, but yes...off course @Mar T.
i will start a separate thread for this, it is has a video of my village now also

the video is of driving up there, and ending at my house

very nice that @Dutchbeat invited me  ::thumb:: to add words to this track  ::thumb:: ::thumb::
he was making this music for his entry about his town at first, but...he only added some words and in the end most of it is about the place where i was born and live again now, but also about how similar our little villages are  ;D ;D ;D

so thanks, i will place a link to the video in a new thread, or ask @Dutchbeat to place a link to the video he made...

@Dutchbeat and @Ricita .....the best song I've heard in years  from you..really I think it's a beautiful message to everybody.  Your hometown is the world   ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart:: ::heart::  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”

 If @Goatrelated ‘s interpretation is correct (and I don’t see why not) it’s worth the challenge already.
Starting from zero, @Dutchbeat and @Ricita went on to engulf the world, while I, with the same intent entirely, narrowed it down to your home town’s your bedroom.

Funny but true, i’ve never thought of it that way.
I’m already curious about the outcome.
If we believe Erich Kästner’s wonderful children’s book 33rd of May, my patience’s only tested for 5 more days or so.
It is a surprise however, how only a few of the Kitcheners seem to have jotted down their thoughts about their home town.
Kind regards, Gus

Hey @Dutchbeat and everyone. Barring some miraculous miracle prior to May 31st, I'm out.  :( 
I had an idea for the song but I don't think it's going to come together in time.
