Once upon a time there lived a girl and a guy. Let's call them Indigo and the bear. Neither of them were actually bears but they had bear-like qualities. They were warm and cuddly, they were loyal friends, and they had voracious appetites – not for people or for household rubbish, but for music. They lived and breathed for music. They wrote music in their sleep.
Together they played in a rock band, but it was hard to keep up. 'My voice hurts', said the guy. 'Let's play something different. Something stripped back. Something soulful.'
'Yes!', said the girl. 'I'll take my piano, you take your guitar and your voice like honey and we will see what we can find'.
They set off down the road. Soon enough they came across a violin player sitting under a tree with a bird's nest on her head. 'Come and join us!', they cried. So she brushed herself off and the three of them walked side by side. A little further along they happened upon a man carrying a guitar on each shoulder. He was whistling a happy tune and making everybody around him happy too. 'Will you join us?', they asked him. 'Why, I believe I will!', he replied.
So the four of them took out their instruments and began to play. Sweet music flowed and they smiled. On and on they played as the day turned to dusk. The birds folded their wings and the bats flew overhead, the rain beat down on the windows and the gutters ran with water. Finally, the moon popped over the horizon. Still they played on. All together now. Indigo and the bear..
