POEM

“Sunflowers, Not Facing the Sun”

“I stand tall
As gracious as one could be
Blooming to my best
As slender as it touches my being
Everyone else is facing the sun
Bending towards its unfathomable galore
They and I are both undoubtedly
Grown on the benevolence of life’s essence
The brighter side mercilessly feeding desires unbound
By daunting the “courage to know” with each spin
Though, I am not able to face the sun the way they do
Yet, I learn from the knowledge bred within me
Beyond achievement markers, but an adverse ability
An opportunity to exercise my special self
From the cherubic attire of my blessed soul
To the unfathomable mystery the drape of this world hides
That I, by not facing the sun
Hunt the gems in the milieu of the human existence.”

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

Google Doodle for today …. “Adolphe Sax …. 201st birthday”!!

ADOLPHE SAX …. INVENTOR OF THE SAXOPHONE

Who was he and why does he matter?

Today’s Google Doodle explained

Antoine-Joseph “Adolphe” Sax (6 November 1814 – c. 7 February 1894) was a Belgian inventor and musician who invented the saxophone. He played the flute and clarinet, and his other creations are the saxotromba, saxhorn and saxtuba.

Antoine-Joseph Sax was born on November 6, 1814 in Dinant, Belgium to Mr. and Mrs. Charles-Joseph Sax. While his first name was Antoine, he was referred to as Adolphe from childhood.

His father and mother were instrument designers themselves, who made several changes to the design of the horn. Adolphe began to make his own instruments at an early age, entering two of his flutes and a clarinet into a competition at the age of 15. He subsequently studied performance on those two instruments as well as voice at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels.

November 6th is the 201st birthday of the Belgian musician and inventor of the saxophone, who is being celebrated by five Google Doodles

Adolphe Sax, born in Belgium on November 6, 1814, was a Belgian musician and inventor who created the much-loved saxophone. Sax invented several instruments including the saxophone which was patented in 1846.

“He started tinkering with instruments of his own, and upon bringing together the body of a brass and the mechanics of a woodwind, created a hybrid that would revolutionize music,” Google wrote on its Doodle blog.

“His eponymous saxophone had a sound all its own, a wonderfully smoky middle ground between the two.”

Sax was one of 11 children, and came from a lineage of instrument-makers – his father, who was also a carpenter, passed down his skills to his entrepreneurial son who apparently began tinkering with his first instrument – the clarinet – as a teenager.

According to Google, one Doodle wouldn’t be enough to showcase how creative and “inventive” Sax was, so the artist Lydia Nichols designed five different Doodles, each highlighting a different instrument invented by Sax.

At the end of the day …. “Stellar Moves: The Story of Pluto”!!


SM-Sign

~~November 5, 2015~~ 

STELLAR MOVES

Stellar Moves is an animated short film produced at Ringling College by the creative team of Millivette Gonzalez, Tabia Lees, and Valerie Sattazahn.

It tells the story of Pluto, an uncoordinated plutoid who loves to dance, and his quest to become a member of his favorite dance crew, The Planets.

The hottest dance group in the universe, The Planets, has eight members but they might begrudgingly allow another entry in to the team if they can be suitably impressed. A competition is held to find the missing planet so that eight might become nine. At home, young Pluto does not think he has what it takes, but receives encouragement from his best friend, one of his satellites you might say!

This will have you rooting for the little guy of the solar system all over again.

Stellar Moves is – and you may not believe this such is the high standard of animation – their senior thesis short film. It was produced at Ringling College of Art and Design (if you want to study computer animation in the USA, then this is always in the top three places to go).

No doubt they will be inviting the trio back to give talks to their undergraduates in a few years.

HUNTING ISN’T A SPORT

Hunting isn’t a sport.

In a sport, both sides know they are playing.

It’s not a game either.

In a game both sides know they are playing for fun.

To call hunting “sport” is more than a misnomer: it’s an imprecision that has the effect of enlarging society’s acceptance of gun use generally.

When hunting is called “sport,” it becomes wrapped in the same benign mantle as our familiar, non-lethal games of athletic activity and physical competition.

Something to think about …. “The Power of a Woman …. end of story”!!


ICan

~~November 5, 2015~~ 

THE POWER OF A WOMAN 

The empowerment of a woman begins within herself,
if that woman loves herself;
she has that authority to love anyone she chooses.

The power of a woman becomes even stronger
when she finds herself and knows who she is;
and doesn’t let anyone tell her otherwise.

The power of a woman can make her strong enough
to stand on her own two feet; and finally that women is independent .
She will not be afraid to ask for help or help herself.

The power of a woman is stronger then the grip of a
lions teeth when his prey is in his mouth.

The power of a woman is a power no man could live without ,
because without a women there can be no man.

The power of a woman is endless;
so stand tall, and represent for all the women in the world.
