For the folks in Bend, Oregon... Aquas de Marco -- Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto & Mucha

A stick, a stone
It's the end of the road
It's the rest of a stump
It's a little alone


The foot, the ground
The flesh and the bone
The beat of the road
A slingshot's stone


A truckload of bricks
In the soft morning light
The shot of a gun
In the dead of the night


My daughter competed in the Endeavor Team Challenge race over the weekend
in Bend, and we had a stellar visit.

This was unfortunately clouded by an active shooter event which we observed
from the fringes when trying to return to her hotel.

Aguas De Maršo (Waters Of March) -- Stan Getz with JoŃo Gilberto and Mi˙cha,
Gilberto's wife... captures the rhythms of the endurance race. The lyrics encapsule
the world around... Mention of gunshots in the lyrics rendered my heart and could
not be more poignent...

There is healing in music... where there is water, there is life... Let the music and lyrics
pour out its healing power... My tears will supply the water...

Here is one translation of the English lyrics:

That is all...
