Mystic Mountain Moments DVD Released! sticky icon

Nature Images and Jazz Music Combined...

Mystic Mountain Moments DVD brings soothing music and soothing images of the Rocky Mountains to your DVD player

by Harris Jensen, MD

Editor, Good Day Journal

 

Mark Sloniker is one of the all time greats in jazz, I think.  I love his soothings, rolling sounds, his great lyrics...you can find him most Saturdays at Jay's Bistro and he's always the same.  Upbeat, joyful, loving life for all the wonder and meaning it brings.

Now his music is joined with photography of nature that conveys that same attitude of wonder and gratitude.

After a long day at school or at the office, the last think you want to do is work at something to relieve stress.  Your are out of gas--maybe emotionally and with what is in your car's gas tank.

Here is something to do to let go of the worries of the world without making much of an effort.

Watch these images from a lake high in the Snowy Range of Wyoming and elsewhere in the Rockies.  It was a warm summer afternoon when some of these pictures were taken.  Brook trout were sipping mayflies on the surface of the lake.  A light breeze rippled the surface.  And no one else was around.  A rabbit hopped along the shore.  Flowers were blooming in a meadow.

Some photos are from Estes Park, Colorado, others are from the Front Range here in Colorado, while others are from the Tetons and Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming...the heron pictures however are from Florida...enjoy!

Enjoy letting go!  Nature makes it easier!

If you put your mouse's cursor over the photos, a menu will appear over the bottom of the pictures. Clicking the colored circle in the lower right corner of the picture will bring you to a page where you can click "Harris" and get to my other public web galleries of photos.  Enjoy them too if you want...

After several years in development, it’s here!  A collaboration of two Colorado artists has yielded a series of four movies totaling about 90 minutes of relaxing nature images and soothing jazz sounds.
Mark Sloniker, a well known jazz artist in Colorado, has produced a number of CD’s (see marksloniker.com) which have been used as movie soundtracks before (ABC Sports and Public Television) but this is his first collaboration with Jensen.
Now is Jensen an artist?

Social Media Marketing, It's The Future Baby!

But I'm nervous...you can't control what people will say about me!  Yikes...

Okay, so people want to know what I personally am thinking.  Well I'm at a social media marketing conference today.  Whew.  It's complicated to know Facebook (800 million users), Twitter (million)s), and create buzz by word of mouse.  This stuff is just weird.  I don't get it.  People say wow, tweet, I saw this I saw that.  Tweet tweet tweet.  It just seems so dumb to me.  Oh, look, I am getting a coffee at the starbucks at the Hilton in Fort Collins. 

Second Music Video Released! Classical Music Relaxes The Soul....

Key words: photography, music, Jason Sandvick, Sibelius, Youtube, wildlife photography

Editor, Good Day Journal

 

We are on a roll!  This week Good Day Journal launched a second Youtube video featuring wildlife photography combined with relaxing music.

Hey, it's time to wind down!  And what better way than with the images of nature in its unspoiled beauty in the Rocky Mountains...

The video starts with harsh windswept snowscapes in the Snowy Range of Wyoming, near Arlington, Wyoming.

The music is dark and brooding from Jason Sandvick.  This digital composition was made on the web site Sibelius, performed and produced there as well.

This is music made on the internet.  Not a finger touched a keyboard here.  After the opening blue snow scenes, images appear of rain falling from clouds lit up in sunset light, then there are some of melting snow, running mountain creeks, and soon come images of summer in the Rocky Mountains.  Hawks fly over, flowers bloom, the beauties of summer are everywhere to be seen and taken in, lifting the human spirit.

Sandvick's composition complements the imagery very well...

And it sounds great!

Take a look and take a listen on the Youtube video embedded above...

Secrets For Motivation

Use the pharmacy in your brain to rev up your exercise routine.
by Harris Jensen, MD

Few times compare to Colorado in the spring. There's a cool breeze coming off the mountains, the sun is warm and green things are springing up everywhere. But will you get out there and take it in?

Let nature motivate you! Don't let excuses get in your way!

How many times have you heard this? Reminding yourself of health benefits is important, but our brain still likes some immediate reward. So give it what it likes!
