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.

What is going on.

Sandee,thank you for posting the Wednesday's Hero, and for moderating the comments. I think I owe my visitors an explanation as to what is going on. This week has not been fun. Sunday my water heater went out. Yesterday(Tuesday) I was DISINVITED TO A CHRISTENING .  The hosts feared my Seizures would cause"upset"for some of the other guests.This is a huge slap in my face and a stab in my back at the same time, it really hurts to be shunned again. This is why I lost my interest in blogging, visiting and even dropping my entrecard on fellow entrecard bloggers. I am deeply hurt and very depressed.

So sorry to hear of your difficulties. Keeping you from the christening does not sound right at all. I'd be very hurt too! Please get help with your depression if you need it. Sometimes it's good to talk with a counselor.

Wanda's Wings said...

I am so sorry you have been so deeply hurt. I would have been crushed too. Don't be afraid to seek help with the depression. Depression can drain the life from you. Warm thought sent your way.

Sandee said...

I'm so sorry about all of this Mike. You would think in this day and age that people would understand about seizures. There is nothing to be 'weirded out' about. You just make sure the person having the seizures doesn't injure themselves. I just don't get it. Then to invite your wife and exclude you is inexcusable. I'm so sorry that this has happened to you. Big hug to you both.

I'm sorry about that Mike. It's hard not to feel bad about this. Many times things like this remind me that shortcomings in me and others are still very prevalent. Take care.

Kathy M. said...

Ouch. That hurts. I'm so sorry. Please take care.

Mike Golch said...

Syd and Kathy M.the sad thing is that they do not realize that they are doing that,and when it is pointed out they get indignate about it.That I'm hurting them.

Mari said...

I'm so sorry Mike. I think this is very hurtful, and to say Celestine could come and not you is even worse.
That being said - you really are the bigger person. You deal with these seizures all the time and you still live your life. You were willing to go out the the Christening, in spite of the fact that a seizure might happen. That takes a pretty big man! They are losing out, and if they continue in this path, they will be teaching the baby the wrong things too. Hang in there - we love you!

Mike Golch said...

Mari,I believe that they will answer to God for the good and the bad that they have done on this Earth just as I do and every one else does as well."Let Go,Let God."I learned that in an A.A. meeting.

Matty said...

Mike, I'm so sorry to hear about this. It's a shame that they place someone else's feelings over yours. Hang in there and I hope you feel better soon.

Grandma Sandy said...

Mike - I am so deeply hurt and upset that you would even think that we did not want you there. By a post that you put out there last week about the seizures you had here alone when there were only 5 people at my house, you admit that your seizures are out of hand. I had also offered to you (which you didn't bother to post) that I had invited you and Cel over for lunch so that we could take your picture with the baby. So your bloggers now feel that we didn't want you there and we were "wierded" out. There was a young family that was also attending the baptism...imagine how those little children would have been scared....not to mention that the restaurant would for sure have called 911 upon the first indcation of one of your seizures. I have witnessed many of them and you know yourself how difficult it is for Cel to even assist you during your seizures. I find it very hurtful that your bloggers would think that Allesan is an unfit mother and then to mention her full name. I ask that you retract your comments (or delete them, even better).

Grandma Sandy AKA My Sister,I modified the posting that does not change the FACT THAT YOU UNINVITED ME AND HURT ME DEEPLY.
