FAITHfully Yours – Soul Music

We, verily, have made music as a ladder for your souls, a means whereby they may be lifted up unto the realm on high…

We could glean, then, that the reason music is so powerful, whether we are conscious of it or not, is that it has an effect on our soul, and that ultimately its purpose is to uplift us.

Baha’u’llah, Baha’i World Faith

A Baha’i Bit

Baha’is accept the validity of each of the founders and prophets of the major world religions, whose teachings have provided the basis for the advancement of civilization – Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Moses, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad. Bahá’u’lláh, the latest of these Messengers, explained that the religions of the world come from the same Source and are in essence successive chapters of one religion from God.

During the month of November, Baha’i Blogging is hosting a post-a-day (or so) something related to or inspired by Baha’i Faith.  Because so many of you follow both this blog and CATNIPblog Peggy & I will post our “dailies” here and Sunday “retrospectives” on

Landfill Orchestra – Creativity to the MAX

I played the violin (with my looooooong time friend Sharon Mills) starting in grade school and through high school.  I HATED practicing.  Over and over and over the same exercises that had no musicality, only designed to hone technique.  I never developed technique.  

But I loved playing in the orchestra, sitting in the middle of music. 

My parents sacrificed to buy me the violin and give me lessons.  I was fortunate.  I had a real violin.

Take a look at this short video! Fantastic!

Cow-a-bunga! or Holy Cow! or Moooove over Coltrane or . . .

Pay attention to the two cows in the back – more interested in eating than culture.  My kinda cow!
