    I did not know the word "belligerent" so consulted with dictionary. Sounds beautiful.

    Thanks, Jun. Glad you liked it, and learned a new word also! Now you can look up bellicose, as that was almost the title.

    I enjoyed your Belligerent Butterflies.

    You music always takes one to a different place musically.

    Nice to hear it with the Garritan Steinway.

    I kept looking for a tempo change and was hoping for one, but then the butterflies would not be belligerent if they followed my wishes.

    I like belligerent better than bellicose, jusrt because it flows off the tongue easier when paired with butterflies than does bellicose.

    Nice piece

    Re: Belligerent Butterflies

    Well, thanks, Phil. My music is surely different. But all my life I have felt that I was cut from a non-standard template. I don't know how I managed 22 years of military service.

    Ron, no tempo change is correct. I thought that in this short piece, there was sufficient change of pace in the music without tempo change. But I realize that I am less sensitive to the need for tempo change than most. Generally, I am inclined to leave the tempo constant, but vary the pace of the music. When I play the piano, I have a different outlook. I am rather free with tempo and change. My next little quickie, waiting in the wings, is also without tempo change. Watch for Furry Lisa, soon. But after that, there will be a piano version of a Paso Doble with some tempo changes. Also a nocturne/waltz with tempo changes.

    caught my attention from the first note. very enticing. never stomps movings. somewhat like a butterfly would. especially a belligerent one. very curious work. makes my brain just twinkle with images of blue, and yellow, and just swarms of obscure butterflies in the darkness.

    Thumbs up Re: Belligerent Butterflies

    Richard:
    I would not want to meet these "Belligerent Butterflies" in a dark alley--they sound big and scary. I agree with you that there is enough going on so a change of tempo (or pace) is not warranted. Where's my net?

    I was. Had enough. Retired 36 years ago. Now, watch butterflies, buzzards, lizards, redwoods, and tend to my flowers and write music. I have seen butterflies in combat in my flower beds!

    Thanks to both of you for you comments.

    Butterflies fled from the dark corners of the Art Bell Show, perhaps;
    these fellows know how to perform a belligerent insectival stomp-and-
    burn with militant discipline and style.

    Strong, fascinating piece, Richard!

    My best,
