Need to get a focal bead for a gift for a cousin and the awful part is that I know I have the perfect bead, but I just spent days cleaning up and now I can't find a thing!
Saw the Target ad today - they're now selling jewelry that mimics that which we beaders (and Sundance) have made and enjoyed for years - garnet and labradorite earrings and necklaces... A little amazed by that. Will have to check on the quality of the stones. Handmade will always be better!!!!!
Went to the symphony last night - hearing the orchestra warming up and going through the ritual of tuning brought back floods of memories as did the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony - played that - don't remember when or where or which orchestra.
Beethoven : Symphony No.7 in A major Op.92 : II Allegretto - Nikolaus Harnoncourt & Chamber Orchestra of Europe
Having a listening skill is important and may be something that we, as an electronic society, are loosing. Think about it. Sitting and listening to a book on cd or an orchestra without doing anything else.
Today's first quote comes from Red Auerbach: Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
Today's second quote comes from Buddy Holly: Without Elvis, none of us could have made it.
