Piano Fantasy

      

If you’re ever having a tough day, there’s nothing like some piano music, accompanied by a violin. Or is that violin music accompanied by a piano? Anyway music is good medicine!  🙂  

This really could be called Piano and Violin Fantasy. I first discovered William Joseph through a Lindsey Stirling video. He is an amazing pianist, and extremely talented. I have just discovered violinist Caroline Campbell. She has a different style than Lindsey, in that she is more classical in her approach, and she does not perform dance moves. Yet her passion and intensity for the music is incredible.

I hope you enjoy this piece, it is outstanding in every way. I love this music.

Have a great rest of the weekend, and I wish you peace!

American Dream

      

Do you work too much? I do, I think we all do at some point. After all, we need to do what we can, for ourselves and our families. But there comes a point where our work can damage our relationships. We can easily become obsessed with what we do, and the material benefits we can reap.

This video has a story in it, of one family. Yes there is film of the band playing, but it is also interwoven with a family, not exactly experiencing domestic bliss.

Please be careful with your ears! The guitars here are very loud, which is one of the reasons I like it! I love guitars, add some great drumming, and a positive message, and your talking my language! This is very positive. There’s one line in the beginning I don’t care for, but the rest I love, especially the last line of the song.

So give someone a hug today, and put the work down, just for a few.

I wish you peace, and rest.

Master of Tides

     

So what happens when you have Lindsey Stirling, and her wonderful violin playing, with a water fountain, a light show, performance dancing, special effects, and oh by the way, an unsuspecting crowd watching live?

You have this video! I love the music and the dance here.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Get Back Up Again

     

Do you ever get discouraged? I do. I think we all do. Regardless of what we face in life, such as broken relationships, financial loss, and even blog stats taking a severe downturn 😦  we can not only live through it, we can keep going. Fortunately I married the most beautiful woman on the planet (inside and out) and she encourages me to keep fighting. 

I love the fact that there is always something that motivates us on the inside, to get back up. Some use positive thinking, some have faith, but we all have something in us that tells us not to quit. And if someday I don’t have a blog, I will still keep going. And I will have a lot more free time! But to be honest, I blog because I love to write. Thanks for reading!

Here is a song, be careful with your ears!

Transcendence

This is an inspiring video! As we know music can help any situation, and make our world a better place, but in this piece, music is a symbol of hope and life. Music can bring hope!

This is wonderful for many reasons. The music is wonderful, but it also combines Lindsey’s music with modern dance. Watch as different people come alive when they have hope. Life and energy come and live in those having a tough time.

This is one time that I highly recommend watching the commercial! Please, please watch the commercial at the end. It is about the landfill orchestra. I think you will be amazed! There is also an introduction for a program to help children learn leadership skills, called, “Leader in Me”. This is fantastic! Powerful! Remember we truly can make a difference in our world. We can do this!

I wish you PEACE, and have a great week!

P.S. I will be posting some more of the Last People series in a few days.

Wonderful Tonight

I love this song for several reasons. The lyrics, the vocals, the guitar, are all beautiful and so unique. It’s also a love song. It reminds me too,of My Love and I, especially when we were young. There is a very mellow sound here, that I find very beautiful.

Have a great rest of the week!

Her Violin Sings

In this video Lindsey Stirling is in New Zealand, and to be honest the scenery, and cinematography here is some of the most of beautiful I have seen! Gorgeous! The music is wonderful too. Even though the music is from the Lord of the Rings, there is nothing else from the movie here, so that’s why I gave the post the title, Her Violin Sings. By the way Lindsey actually sings here as well.

I’ve never been to New Zealand, but it’s on my list now, of a must see.

This video is inspiring. Have a great week!

First Friday – Touch the Sky

It’s the first Friday of the month! The experiment last week with the First Friday idea went very well. So here is some beautiful, faith based music. Tonight I plan to post something from the Psalms. This is a once a month feature.

I like this group, and I love this song. In this version of it there is no audience except us. They are in a cafe and it reminds me of some friends getting together, playing some music. There are no rock stars here. This song is very rich with meaning. On the one hand it is mellow, but it is also inspirational, especially towards the end. The words are incredible poetry, and are about connecting to the Creator through prayer.

Here are some of the lyrics:

My heart beating,

my soul breathing,

I found my life,

when I layed it down,

upward falling,

spirit soaring,

I touch the sky,

when my knees hit the ground.

Have a great weekend!

Peace.

Overcomer!

I was going to save this video, maybe for a First Friday, but I am so thrilled with it, I’m sharing it today. You may have seen it before. It is absolutely one of the most uplifting and moving videos I have ever seen! There is tremendous strength and encouragement here.

I love this video!

It is filled with people overcoming, some of them famous. The victory is in the fighting! Whatever you are going through, do not give up. Look up, and keep giving it your best. You ain’t done yet! You have a lot of living, and a lot of giving to do yet! Give it everything you’ve got, and go for it.

Peace.

First Fridays – Blessings

So I have this idea for the first Friday of each month. Yes I know it’s not August yet, but today is an experiment. The idea I have is that one day a month, I play music like this, have some commentary, or maybe some words from the Book of Psalms. I have faith and you can see that in the blog, but I know preaching makes people uncomfortable. I don’t like it either. Well ok, maybe once in a great while! You signed up for nature poems, love poems, quotes, and some stories with good endings, and I love writing in these ways. This is a creative writing blog. Yet there can be incredible beauty in faith.

So today I will see what kind of interest there is. You let me know. I really enjoy your comments, so please feel free.

This song by Laura Story is so incredibly beautiful, I really wanted to share it with you. I love the poetry here. We all go through tough times. Maybe there really is healing, in the tears.
