The album "The North Wind" was designed by Andreн Klimkovsky in 1986-87. The first tunes were written during his training at the Moscow Planetarium with participation in the "Alrado." Watching his own growing up, watching the life priorities of his friends, as well as against the collapse of the group, a young musician, created a number of works of philosophical orientation, thus asking myself the question - "Are we living in?" Some of those tunes were later lost, but in 2009-10 Andrew Klimkovsky written new musical themes and finished once conceived album.
We - the people of the north, where winter lasts for more than half the year, and therefore more than half his life, often dreamed of warmth. We need the Sun, cheerful chirping of birds. Would fall into the grass, looking at floating in infinite-high blue sky clouds and forget about the problems, just lie there and do nothing ... Nothing ... According to many, it is - happiness - harmony and self-sufficiency. There is no need for anything and everything is accepted "as is."
But somehow in tune with the world and making it the way it is created, we sometimes need many mandatory conditions - a certain ambient temperature, well-fed condition of the body, in any case, not a painful, soft grass without unnecessary pests ... How often does it happen? - Rarely, and usually very long time - as a child. If you think a little more about this, we remember that as children we were not afraid of the cold, cold wind - and this we took for granted and "as is," and that's why we feel happy at any time of year - winter and summer.
Will tell you more, it is the need to "move" in the cold season propels blood in us (literally and figuratively), makes us energetic, strong, and yes - that is, happy, happy, regardless of the conditions and situations. Later, enter adulthood, we "wrapped" on itself in abundance solidity, gravity, fatigue and worries from concerns to be important and respected, well-fed and stylishly dressed. And we soon traded for these "new things" happiness and joy of the oncoming cold wind.
The irony and annoyance is that for some reason no one back to you is not replaced. And that would get back in the order nursery easy-going, fun and happiness have to work hard, and can even leave with something - to throw too much of a head. However, if you do not be afraid to take a step towards the north wind, it will be your ally and together you will find what has been forgotten, lost.
As the ancient - "Keep your feet warm, and the cool head."
