LONGEST DAY, SHORTEST NIGHT

Summer solstice 2017 in Northern Hemisphere was at 12:24 AM on Wednesday, June 21, 2017
All times are in Eastern Time.

~SUMMER SOLSTICE~

The summer solstice (or estival solstice), also known as midsummer, occurs when a planet’s rotational axis, or geographic pole on either its northern or its southern hemisphere, is most inclined toward the star that it orbits.

On the summer solstice, Earth’s maximum axial tilt toward the Sun is 23.44°. This happens twice each year (once in each hemisphere), when the Sun reaches its highest position in the sky as seen from the north or south pole.

INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

What a beautiful concept. What a beautiful idea. What a beautiful celebration.

I can only extrapolate my feelings and believe that ALL human beings want and deserve peace.

Why is this so elusive?

Of course, it’s a rhetorical question.

There are many answers, many of us feel that way.

Each an every one has an answer for why isn’t there peace in the world.

It’s elusive and seems to be so far away.

We can only hope and image!

David Garrett (born David Christian Bongartz; 4 September 1980) is a record-breaking German pop and crossover violinist and recording artist.

Garrett was born in Aachen, Germany, to an American prima ballerina, Dove Garrett, and a German jurist, Georg Bongartz. He adopted his mother’s maiden name as his stage name, as “it was more pronounceable”.

Violinist superstar David Garrett has won many plaudits both for his classical playing and unique crossover styles. Rock, pop and core classical works are all fair game for the former model.

Life and Music

David Garrett was born on September 4th 1980 in Aachen, the son of German-American parents, and first started to learn the violin at the age of four.
He made his first public appearance aged ten and was one of the first students of Itzhak Perlman at the Julliard School in 1999. He graduated from his master class when he was 23.
Later David withdrew from the international concert business, moving to New York for self-reflection and artistic advancement. During this time, Garrett earned his living by working as a model.
The youngest exclusive recording artist with Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft, David has played in all the great European cities with the most distinguished orchestras and conductors.
He released his first album, Free, in 2007.
Subsequent albums have seen him experiment with core classical repertoire and crossover material.
In 2010 Garrett released Rock Symphonies, a collection of rock and metal songs recorded on the violin.
In the past, he has played with pianists Itamar Golan, Daniel Gortler and Milana Cernyavska.
In 2012 it was announced that Garrett was to play the role of Paganini in a forthcoming biopic.
He released 14, a collection of recordings inspired by his teenage years, in 2013.
Did you know?
In 2008 David Garrett held the Guinness World Record for the World’s Fastest Violinist when he played Flight of the Bumblebee in 1 minute and 5.26 seconds.

Thoughts for today, #382 …. “I need to find the way Back …. to Me”!!


WayBack

~~June 1, 2016~~ 

FIND YOUR WAY BACK

I feel this so deeply within my inner self.

I have to find myself ….

I have to find my way back to what I was and regain what I’ve lost.

The realities of daily life and the distractions that get in the way seep away our inner peace and our energy.

We become what we are not.

I’m ready to find myself back to me.

Today …. “Full Flower Moon …. May 21st”!!

FULL MOON

May 2016

We use Full Moon names that were used during Native American and Colonial times to help track the seasons.

Depending on the tribe, May’s Full Moon was called the Full Flower Moon as well as Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon.

The May Moon marked a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.

IOTD …. Image of the day, #465 …. “Leap Year 2016 …. “!!


Leap16

~~February 29, 2016~~ 

LEAP YEARS 

Normally our calendar years are made up of 365 days, but every four years we add a day to make what is known as a ‘leap year’.

Here’s why:

The Gregorian calendar, the most widely used across the globe, measures a year to be 365 days following the Earth’s orbit around the Sun.

However, the Earth’s orbit takes 365.24 days to complete its solar orbit and an extra day every four years is added to keep calendar seasons synchronized with solar seasons.

If we didn’t do this the seasons would shift around the calendar, and in 750 years’ time June would find itself in the middle of winter .

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

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!”
