“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I
could not learn what it had to teach, and not,
when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

~Henry David Thoreau ... Daily Inspirational Quotes

THE MAN ON THE MOON

I just discovered that I’m "The Man on the Moon"...
That’s where I live.
It’s nice here...pretty quiet...but the loneliness is great,
especially on the dark side...
I get hit by meteors occasionally,
but I have managed to survive despite the hole in my head...
I have to be very careful living in a vacuum...
Very easy to get choked if I’m not careful...
Without some form of life support system, I’m a dead man...
Days are warm and nights are unbearably cold...
Large shifts in temperature...

I have a beautiful view of the world though...
I can see the Earth and the stars and everything's so crystal clear...
Too bad I had to go back to earth occasionally for supplies...
I run the risk of burning up in the atmosphere upon re-entry...
If I didn't protect myself in my space suit and helmet,
I could die you know...

Occasionally a technical glitch
makes me lose contact with the outside world,
but I have managed to learn how to fix the problems so far...
You must be very resourceful when you're "The Man on the Moon"...
There's nobody here to help if I need it...
I could scream or even die and no one would know...
Oh well, those are the risks we explorers choose to take...
It’s not everyone who can live on the moon!

THE SPIRIT OF CREATIVITY: Thoughts on Living One's Creative Truth

The form of our creativity is not as important as the loving essence within a given form, because that love is the foundation of our creative expression itself, eternal and indestructible. Composer Joseph Curiale's book is an insightful, passionate and inspiring guide to exploring, unlocking and honoring the creative spirit in everyone. His companion book, The Wisdom of Creativity, is a collection of ageless aphorisms filled with enlightening and timeless truths that can help illuminate the path that leads to both the discovery of our creative riches, and the fulfillment of our creative wishes.

AUTHOR'S BIOGRAPHY: Composer and author Joseph Curiale has been described as “the poster boy for dreams come true.” Arriving in Los Angeles in 1980 with nothing more than a passion for music and an unshakable belief in himself, he was writing music for The Tonight Show by 1982 and soon after became the first staff songwriter in the history of Columbia Pictures. He has composed and orchestrated music for movies, TV, and live performances, including Steve Martin’s Roxanne. His work on the soundtrack for the movie Breakin’ sold over 4 million copies, while his orchestrations for A Tribute To Sammy Davis Jr. earned him an Emmy nomination. His original CDs, Awakening and The Music Of Life, recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, are featured regularly on National Public Radio. Mr. Curiale is also an author, poet, photographer and artist. A deeply spiritual man, his works are recognized the world-over for their passion, beauty and sense of wonder.

AWAKENING — Audio CD

Joseph Curiale's committed and spirited performances of his own works rely heavily on the tranquil balancing of different orchestral and instrumental sounds. "Gates of Gold", the most performed and requested composition here, honors the Chinese immigrants of the Gold Rush days who helped to build the West. "Awakening" pays tribute to three beautiful "fruits" of the spirit, and "The Multiples of One" expresses the "oneness" of all creation. This CD is a celebration of the composer surviving serious illness in the California countryside. His work is filled with tender, intimate moments ... infused with wonder, radiance and joy, that is soul inspired.

THE MUSIC OF LIFE — Audio CD

This CD by composer Joseph Curiale is an outstanding example of the most sublime music being written today. Curiale, a master at orchestration, successfully melds Western sonorities with Oriental modalities, thereby creating a style of music uniquely his own. Listen to his "Tea in a Chinese Camp" featuring erhu artist Karen Han and "An American Variation" to hear the influence that his years living in the Far East have left on him. On the other hand, listen to "Wind River (I Am)" to actually "hear" the state of Wyoming in its entire natural splendor, and also to "Prairie Hymn", a hymn dedicated to the spirit of the American Heartland and its people.

THE CALM — Audio CD

On The Calm: Inspired 20th Century Classics, we get a 17-track CD sampling of some lesser-heard 20th-Century pieces that are all (you guessed it) calming. It doesn't really fit the traditional, mainstream definition of relaxing music — nice, quiet Mozart or Vivaldi, for example. It does, however, feature beautiful, powerful, sublime modern music. Each track is a revelation, from the more familiar Messiaen and Satie to the rest of the album, each one is a piece that is rarely heard. Paul Honey, Joseph Curiale, and James MacMillan all deserve a wider audience. Hopefully, their inclusion on this compilation will help them gain that audience.
