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)

The Blogger's Prayer

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.

Blog Blast For Peace.






I decided that I would post both my Peace globe and this John Lennon song.When this song came out the meaning still is the same.GIVE PEACE A CHANCE.
Just because I have joined Blog Blast for Peace does not mean that I do not honor those that have laid down their lives for our freedom. My Family have a history of serving OUR GREAT COUNTRY.MY DAD DID USAAF,I SERVED IN THE USAF.I HAVE HAD COUSINS UNCLES AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS THAT HAVE PUT ON THE DIFFERENT UNIFORMS OF OUR COUNTRY.

My hope is that one day, through understanding and love, we'll be able to let the weapons go because tyrants will never rise again.

Peace to you and yours, Mike. And thank you for your service.

Travis said...

I believe that striving for Peace honors those who have fought for our freedoms. They didn't want to go to war, but they did to secure Peace.

Your post is most appropriate to that end.

Peace to you and yours Mike!

jennifer said...

I love that song. The hope there somehow clashes with the images on the video though. The shock of what some people go through and how dire their need is for peace put things in a whole different light. It makes today seem more urgent.

Bless you Mike for your boldness.

PEACE.

Akelamalu said...

Wonderful post Mike. I particularly like your Peace Globe. :)

Mike Golch said...

Airman Mom,this is a movement that I have joined.on the left side bar is a link to the blogger that has started it.

Anndi,that would be great if that did happen.

Travis,thank you.

Jennifer,how true.

Akelamalu,I'm glad that you like the globe.

Just Breathe said...

Great job Mike. Peace to you and yours.

Mari said...

I agree - most who fight for our freedom, still desire peace. Thanks for this post!

Julia Smith said...

The words on your peace globe are absolutely true.

Peace to you, Mike.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Peace to you my friend! I think we all agree that finding peace in life, and in the world is so important.

(( Speedy shakes Mike's hand ))

Great Peace Globe ;-)

tarheelrambler said...

Great post, Mike. Loving peace does not mean giving up the right to defend yourself. I share that opinion with you. My prayer is that when it's necessary for our military to become involved in a situation, the cause being pursued is truly just.

Kimmie said...

Very nice Peace Globe and post Mike. God Bless You.

Ferd said...

Yours is an important statement, Mike.
Like others have noted, I believe our service men are the the most committed agents for peace. They put their lives on the line for it. They have my utmost respect.
Peace, brother!

Scott said...

Mike, thank you thank you thank you to you and your family for your service to our Great Republic... thank you from the bottom of my freedom loving heart sir!

Bond said...

Mike...As others have said I believe that wishing for Peace does not dishonor those who have fought for our freedoms.

My grandfather came to this country as a young man from Italy and his greatest pride was being an American who fought in WW1 and being President of his VFW Post.

Hoping Peace surrounds all who you love.

Mike Golch said...

Just Breathe,Mari,Julia Smint,Speedcat hollydale,Tarhell Rambler,Kimmie,Ferd,Scott,and Bond thank you all for yor comments.I look to the day that there will be no need for war.That is the best way to honor all those that have served and especially those that gave thier lives for freedom.

Mimi Lenox said...

Well said.
Well done.

Peace my friend.

Mike Golch said...
