Thoughts for today …. #64!!


~~December 1, 2014~~ 

Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural, physical, or material world or universe. “Nature” refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the cosmic.

The word nature is derived from the Latin word natura, or “essential qualities, innate disposition”, and in ancient times, literally meant “birth”. Natura was a Latin translation of the Greek word physis, which originally related to the intrinsic characteristics that plants, animals, and other features of the world develop of their own accord.

The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe, is one of several expansions of the original notion; it began with certain core applications of the word φύσις by pre-Socratic philosophers, and has steadily gained currency ever since. This usage continued during the advent of modern scientific method in the last several centuries.

World AIDS Day …. December 1, 2014!!


~~December 1, 2014~~ 

This is a disease that knows no bounds. There are no classes are spared. It attacks all walks of life …. no differences here. From famous to unknown, from rich to poor, from educated to illiterate. This disease is does not discriminate. Doesn’t matter who you are. Anyone can be infected. 

World AIDS Day, observed on 1 December every year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of the disease. Government and health officials, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world observe the day, often with education on AIDS prevention and control.

World AIDS Day is one of the eight official global public health campaigns marked by the World Health Organization (WHO), along with World Health Day, World Blood Donor Day, World Immunization Week, World Tuberculosis Day, World No Tobacco Day, World Malaria Day and World Hepatitis Day. Since 1995, the President of the United States has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day.

Hello December …. a beautiful month!!


~~December 1, 2014~~ 

DECEMBER

The lakes of ice gleam bluer than the lakes
Of water ‘neath the summer sunshine gleamed:
Far fairer than when placidly it streamed,
The brook its frozen architecture makes,
And under bridges white its swift way takes.
Snow comes and goes as messenger who dreamed
Might linger on the road; or one who deemed
His message hostile gently for their sakes
Who listened might reveal it by degrees.
We gird against the cold of winter wind
Our loins now with mighty bands of sleep,
In longest, darkest nights take rest and ease,
And every shortening day, as shadows creep
O’er the brief noontide, fresh surprises find.

Never judge people by their appearance … no to labels!!


~~November 30, 2014~~ 

One Should Never Judge a Person by External Appearances

Race is a social concept used to categorize humans into large and distinct populations or groups by anatomical, cultural, ethnic, genetic, geographical, historical, linguistic, religious, and/or social affiliation. First used to refer to speakers of a common language and then to denote national affiliations, in the 17th century, people began to use the term to relate to observable physical traits. Such use promoted hierarchies favorable to differing ethnic groups. Starting from the 19th century, the term was often used, in a taxonomic sense, to denote genetically differentiated human populations defined by phenotype.

“One beautiful spring day a red rose blossomed in a forest. Many kinds of trees and plants grew there. As the rose looked around, a pine tree nearby said, “What a beautiful flower. I wish I was that lovely.” Another tree said, “Dear pine, do not be sad, we can not have everything.”

The rose turned its head and remarked, “It seems that I am the most beautiful plant in this forest.” A sunflower raised its yellow head and asked, “Why do you say that? In this forest there are many beautiful plants. You are just one of them.”

The red rose replied, “I see everyone looking at me and admiring me.” Then the rose looked at a cactus and said, “Look at that ugly plant full of thorns!” The pine tree said, “Red rose, what kind of talk is this? Who can say what beauty is you have thorns too.”

The proud red rose looked angrily at the pine and said, “I thought you had good taste! You do not know what beauty is at all. You can not compare my thorns to that of the cactus.”

What a proud flower, thought the trees …… “

To start the day …. “A reprieve”!!


~~November 29, 2014~~ 

I need a moment to get away from the ugliness and the pettiness of life. Life is good but there are so many out there, in different positions of power and many “common folk” trying to bring it down and make it “bad” for all. 

Nature soothes me. Music soothes me. If only for a moment before the reality and ugliness return. 

We humans are creating the ugliness that has never been intended to be in life. 

It’s all on us.

At the end of the day …. “ROAR”!!


~~November 26, 2014~~

Alex Boye, mom bloggers celebrate Mother’s Day with Katy Perry ‘Roar‘ cover

In honor of Mother’s Day 2014, singer Alex Boye paid tribute to moms around the world with his Africanized cover of Katy Perry’s “Roar.”

In Boye’s new video, he collaborated with several mom bloggers, including Sistas in Zion — two women who blog about their Mormon faith and who were featured in a Deseret News article in August 2013.

RoyalBor

Boye, also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, recently gave a concert at a blogging conference in Utah, where one of the bloggers asked him to do a video with them.

Boye said he thought that was a good idea, and he wanted to make a video to the song “Roar.”

“I told them that women reminded me of swans,” Boye said. “I told them to picture the way a swan floats effortlessly and gracefully. Perfectly poised on a crystal clear pond, where hardly a ripple can be seen. But what we don’t see underneath the water are tiny little feet flapping at turbo speed like twin turbine engines!”

Thoughts for today …. #54!!


~~November 26, 2014~~ 

Somewhere in the night a quiet professional is waiting.
He does not care that he is tired.
That his hardened body is sleep deprived.
He is unbroken and vigilant in his task.

Somewhere this warrior is the final tripwire.
He has trained all his life in brutal conditions day and night.
This barren and desolate world is his home.
He lives and survives by an ancient Creed.

Somewhere this weapon of war will not ask nor give quarter.
He thrives on the mission and completing his objective.
That he allows the taste of fear to motivate his actions.
He is … the final option.

To start the day …. “Her humble beginnings”!!


~~November 24, 2014~~ 

I think you can tell that I am an ardent Lindsey Stirling fan. I found out about her when I saw here “Elements” YouTube video. I have been following her since. I was once told that she started in “America’s Got Talent” but I’ve never followed that show. 

Here what happened during her participation in that reality show.

LinT7

Raised in a Mormon community in Arizona, Lindsey studied classical music rigorously as a teenager. Lindsey’s love for the violin would not let go, and it became a comfort throughout her struggle with an eating disorder during her early adulthood. Through this passion, Lindsey has created a music world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica.

On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, “dropping the beat” like a rave fairy. Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. She is famed for taking “requests” and has recorded unique versions of the themes from “Phantom Of The Opera” and “Game Of Thrones”, the computer games “Zelda,” “Pokemon,” and “Skyrim,” as well as pop songs by Michael Jackson and Rihanna; She uploads them all to Lindseystomp, a secondary YouTube channel packed with music videos and short comedy films, many featuring her alter-ego – a ‘superfan’ named Phelba. 

Audition
Lindsey Stirling’s audition in Episode 510 consisted of playing the violin in a hip-hop style. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel all voted “Yes,” sending Lindsey to the Vegas Round.

“As is appears in … “

When the time came for the most important performance, these were the judges’ comments.

~~PIERS~~

“You’re not good enough, I don’t think, to get away with flying through the air and try to play the violin at the same time.”

~~SHARON~~

“You need to be in a group. What you are doing right now isn’t enough to fill a theater in Las Vegas”.

~~HOWIE~~

“You are great. That much movement threw off your playing.”

~I GUESS SHE PROVED THEM ALL WRONG~

After the Show

Being voted off “America’s Got Talent” turned out to be what she considers the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Rejection simply strengthened Stirling’s resolve to be herself. “The same reasons I was told I wouldn’t succeed are the reasons people travel hundreds of miles to see me now,” she laughs. “Because it’s different. Because it’s something you haven’t seen before …”

Since the show, Lindsey has flourished as an artist.

A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, AZ, Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 675 million views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.

Lindsey’s self-titled debut album featured twelve original tracks; including the viral piece “Crystallize,” which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views.

Angelika’s Songs …. “Master of Tides”: Lindsey Stirling!!


LS

~~November 23, 2014~~

Angelika, is my oldest grand-daughter, you may have seen her here a few times. She is 9 years old.

She loves music, as much as I do. She’s been keeping me up to date with some of the new songs that are coming out. She knows the songs but doesn’t know the performer most of the time. I’ve trying to teach her it’s important to also know who is singing. Very frequently, we use the “Shazam” app to identify the singer/band.

Last night we were looking at two music posts where I used videos by Lindsey Stirling: “Dragon Age: Inquisition” and “Assassin’s Creed”. She surprised me by asking: “have you seen another one by Lindsey called “Master of Tides“?

I hadn’t. We looked it up together and here I’m presenting it to you.

(This girl has quite a way of teaching me!)

AngWarmMusKeys

For her new music video, Master of Tides, Lindsey Stirling wanted to do something different. The director of the video, Mike Greene, set up a spontaneous live performance and recorded the footage as Stirling’s new music video.

Those who were present in the Americana Mall Square in Glendale, CA witnessed the video and had no idea before the performance that something like this was going to take place.

Move

Stirling combined many ideas for the creation of this video. She had a pirate themed performance with a fountain show, pyro guns, and background dancers that were dressed to look like pirates and sirens. Suzanne Bernel, Cirque Berzerk Director and Stylist remarked about the costumes and the problems the dancers had, saying,

The biggest challenge in the spontaneous performance was designing these beautiful elaborate costumes, some that had some weight and some structure to them and then having to have them be covered up. And the make up too, is how do you have someone in elaborate, Poseidon/sea siren makeup and having to cover that up to where they just look like a shopper at the mall.

Some of the challenges that the crew faced were dancing and performing stunts on a wet surface, incorporating new moves into the routine that Stirling had never done before, and designing costumes and make up that could be disguised easily to fit in with the crowd.

MT1

Stirling concluded the performance by mentioning

The reason I’ve always wanted to do a spontaneous performance is because you get to surprise people; you get to make people, hopefully, make people smile that weren’t expecting this. And I’m looking forward to hopefully, you know, making a memorable night for someone tonight.
