THE SOUND OF SILENCE
Made a new discovery today!
This is one of my favorite songs ever!
I grew up to this music.
Simon and Garfunkel’s music made it to Puerto Rico.
I remember the many nights in my bedroom, as a teen, listening to this song.
Incredible cover, amazing instrument!
Just lay back, close your eyes and be transported to another time … a time of love and sweetness.
A man named Jamie Dupuis‘ rendition of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” is both captivating and haunting. Jamie, a guitarist and composer from Canada, plays the song on an 18-string harp guitar, and it’s getting a lot of attention for its mesmerizing melody.
Even without his voice, it’s easy to repeat the lyrics in your head
“Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Within the sound of silence”
A harped guitar is distinctive due to the addition of one or more plucked strings that float on top of the instrument. It creates a beautiful sound, especially when strummed softly like Jamie does in the video.
On top of that, his choice of song couldn’t be more fitting, especially as he sits in the midst of a peaceful forest.
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel recorded “The Sound of Silence” in 1964 and it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100.
Paul wrote the song when he was just 21-years-old.

Today we celebrate MAY DAY … Happy Festival of Beltane!!
Beltane is the anglicised name for the Gaelic May Day festival. Most commonly it is held on 1 May, or about halfway between the spring equinox and the summer solstice.
Significance: Beginning of summer
Beltane kicks off the merry month of May and has a long history.
This fire festival is celebrated on May 1 with bonfires, Maypoles, dancing, and lots of good old fashioned sexual energy. The Celts honored the fertility of the gods with gifts and offerings, sometimes including animal or human sacrifice.
Cattle were driven through the smoke of the balefires, and blessed with health and fertility for the coming year. In Ireland, the fires of Tara were the first ones lit every year at Beltane and all other fires were lit with a flame from Tara.
The Romans, always known for celebrating holidays in a big way, spent the first day of May…

A REALITY SHOW FOR AN AUDIENCE OF ONE … ONE WITH A VERY TINY VESTIGE OF A BRAIN!!
Netanyahu is not to be trusted!! I believe he was under investigation for corruption in his country … this presentation was a dog and pony show for the FIDIOT sitting in the Oval Office!!
Insulting … for folks with a brain!!
It is in the national interests of the Israelis to have the US tear up the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal which will leave the US in the position to have to go to war with Iran. As long as Iran is at war, the middle east is destabilized which keeps Israel safer.
The presentation that the Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu made on the 30th of April 2018 is nothing new. The Israeli leader may have collected what its agents considered a new find in January 2018, but according to experts who worked on the 2015 Iran Nuclear deal, they had access to all of the same evidence. The negotiations were based on the facts that the Israeli president is now claiming to be proof that Iran lied before the Iran Nuclear deal was finalized. But, the entire agreement was based on the premise that Iran was not a…
