MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

MY HAMMERED DULCIMER
There are various Hammered Dulcimer postings from YouTube of different tunes, and NO I AM NOT PLAYING ANY OF THESE TUNES.Maybe some day when I have the equipment to do so.I have included a link to my You Tube Channel.I invite you to go and watch any of my videos on the site also check out some of the different channels I subscribe to.

ABOUT THE HAMMERED DULCIMER

The hammered dulcimer is an ancient trapezoidal musical instrument played by striking the strings with wooden hammers.

Originating in the Middle East about 2000 years ago, English soldiers brought the instrument back to England after their failed attempt to conquer Persia during the Crusades about 1000 years ago. Dulcimers have many names in many lands: santur in the Middle East, yang q'in in China, hackbrett in Austria, zither in Germany, and cymbalom in Hungary. The name "dulcimer" is derived from Latin, meaning "sweet sound". Hammered dulcimers were popular in England during the reign of James I, when the Bible was translated into English as the King James Bible. The dulcimer was mentioned in the Book of Daniel 3:5 among other instruments "..the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of music..." The dulcimer was later mechanized to become what we now know as the harpsichord which later evolved in the piano.

THE SERENITY PRAYER

THE SERENITY PRAYER
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; enjoying one moment at a time; accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; that I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him forever in the next. Amen. - Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

Lord help me to learn to spell without spellcheck, manage to visit all that visit me, and post regularly - all in 5 minutes a day, so that I can clean house and take care of my family. Help me to not look at every occurrence in my life as a blog post, and to quit taking pictures of weird things to share as well. Please Lord, help me to stop talking about my blog friends as though they are next door neighbors or someone I have known all of my life. And help me dear Lord, to think of something witty and wise to post tomorrow.

DONA NOBIS PACEM


With a new president,may we see the steps to peace,the end of wars. I would like to think that this is a possibilty in out lifetime. AS MY GLOBE SAYS MAKE PEACE AND LOVE NOT WAR.
Now to talk about a troubling email that I recieved from a friend of mine that was deleted as soon as I read it. I do not believe that our New President will be a weak one.,as the email suggested.I do not believe that the end of the world is at hand as the email suggested.
I believe that a new page has been turned a change to reverse the course of this country that maybe just maybe we will see better times new laws preventing what has happened with the great amount of forclosures,the failings of the wall street "boys" that took the money from every body and left America holding the bag for their excesses. This I believe will happen,especially if the Democrats and Republicans and the Independ people of our great country come together as one as we did on Sept 12,2001.
Let's make it happen! Let's make peace a goal.
John Lennon said it best" All we are saying is give PEACE a chance"
This is my thoughts this blog blast for Peace! Respectfully,Michael J. Golch.

Groovy, Mike!
Peace, brother!

Travis said...

Well said Sir! I received some discouraging feedback today as well. It got me down for a bit.

But I listened to the speech again. And I talked to some friends. And I am inspired once again.

Peace!

Hootin' Anni said...

Great peace globe Mike.

Come on over, and read my impressions of peace if you can find time today.

storyteller said...

Thank you for sharing ;--)
Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that ‘Peace is in every step’ … a choice in every instant no matter what’s happening around or within us. As each of us blogs for peace today, we join our minds and hearts together to create this reality in our world.
Hugs and blessings,

Ivanhoe said...

Yay! Give peace a chance! Love how you incorporated your dulicmer in the globe. Peace & love to you :o)

Tink said...

I joined in for the first time. Peace to you and yours!

jennifer said...

Of course I had to see your Peace Globe!!

I think regardless of who we voted for, we have to get behind our president and pray for him and not speak ill of him. The time is NOW for unity as a country. We have to SEEK peace and be able to live together, even with differing beliefs and values. PEACE.

Be blessed Mike.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

Raven said...

Thank you for visiting. Peace to you and yours. Hopefully, the 'friend' you speak of will come to understand that we are ALL part of making times better. It's not just one man, one President. He has the ability to bring alot of people together and then we can HELP him make the country and the world a better place.

Lee said...

Unfortunately, Mike, there are those who have no interest in finding a way to be hopeful about the future with Obama as President. That is truly sad. I agree with you...it's time to give Peace a chance.

Nice post and I hope you have a blessed, Peaceful day!

Julia Smith said...

I love the dulicmer on your peace globe, Michael. Music is an important part of my life (I sing in a choir) and I always feel most strongly connected to my fellow human beings when I'm singing.

I'm glad you deleted the fear-mongering email you received - the hawks are infuriated with the doves right now. Happy Blogblast For Peace Weekend!

Lovely words Mike... just lovely.

Mike Golch said...
