Well, I am simply filled to the brim with joy and gratitude for last weekend’s Harper’s Escape.  It was fabulous and I promise to gift myself more harp events.  Meanwhile, last week I  also learned how to lightly edit an audio file and upload it to the internet.  I know it’s no big deal anymore to do that, but for me this feels really cool!   Uh oh…..I do see  YouTube in my future!  Uranus is flooding my chart right now  with ‘breakthrough energy’ so this seems like a good way to use it.

That said,  here is a piece of my harp practice that will certainly make you smile if you can hang in there for a few minutes.   I’m not posting this piece necessarily for the music…..  it’s about the birds and it’s worth a listen.  Promise.   The first 30 seconds are just me talking as I set the levers on the harp preparing to practice and warm up my hands.    (Recorded on my ipod)

Sound is a very important element to consider when feng shui’ing your home.
Begin,
today,
to listen more closely to the sounds in your home.

Watch this video for inspiration…..if you like it check out the movie: Touch the Sound.  I watched it last night.

Do you have any instruments in your home?  Where have you placed them?

Think about it.  Meditate….. contemplate silence.

I checked in with the Acoustic Musician’s Guild last night. It was a wonderful jam of many guitars, one flute, a drum & some jingles. Mostly we played country/folk……one of my most favorite genre’s. However, there were some Beatles tunes, original songs, and of course a couple of Celtic tunes to liven up the evening.

A Good Time was had by All.

Support your local Musicians.

Aaaaaaaaaahh.

Yes.

Time to leave the world of words for a while and immerse myself into the vibration of harp strings.

It’s pure love.

I’m getting together with some other harpers today. We’re practicing so that we can be ready if a ‘gig’ comes up. It doesn’t matter to me. I enjoy making music together with other musicians. It’s as simple as that.

I’ve always thought of the harp as a solo instrument…..until I saw one of those huge, golden, shimmering pedal harps in the corner of an orchestra. That wasn’t me.

Anyway, I’m taking my harp on the road these days looking for where the musical thread of my life may take me.

As for medicine, well………………who said, “Music soothes the Savage Beast?”
