MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

MY HAMMERED DULCIMER

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)

I guess I'm depressed.

I'm beginning to think that I am depressed.a couple of thing are pointing to that. 1)blogging is not as interesting (writting or reading them).2)doing the Entre Card drops..3) watching the T.V. shows that I like.4) even playing the games are a chore.

Well, I'm guessing that you have a plan when you feel like this? I hope you do.

I hope you feel better soon Mike. :)

Mike Golch said...

Sandee, I do have one.

Syd said...

Mike, I think that this will pass. It does with me. Maybe it is the impending winter coming on. Take care.

Wanda's Wings said...

Mike I'm so sorry you are depressed right now. I can so relate. I feel God has a reason for each of us here on this earth. I know you have helped and prayed for me many time when I didn't think I could take another step. You hang in there my friend. Make a pack with me. We won't give up!

Mari said...

Hang in there Mike, and follow up with the plan if you aren't feeling like yourself quickly. It's nothing to fool around with. We love you!

Mike Golch said...

Syd,Maybe so. but there are days that even eating does not make me feel good and I have been know to do some binging when i'm that down.

Wanda's Wings,you got it.I'm not giving up.
Mari,I will do so.Thank goodness I have an appointment already scheduled.

Lin said...

Dropping on EC is dullsville anyway, so maybe it isn't depression. And TV--well, that ain't so hot either.

Maybe you just need a break, pally. Mix it up a bit and maybe try finding some new blogs or something. It is a weird time of year--it's hard to get used to being inside again and it is getting dark awfully early.

Hang in there. I hope you aren't depressed. ;)

Mike Golch said...

Lin,I am Bi-polar,the seizures that I have makes for a fun day and I have been susicidal in the past.So yah,Im having a bought of depression.

Bing (PinkLady) said...

oh mike, just hang in there. this too shall pass. you have grown stronger over the years and you've been through worse situations before. sometimes when i'm feeling low the way you described it (no interest at all in what used to be quite interesting), i go out for a walk (change of scenery always helps). swimming is even better to cool my head and clear it of cobwebs. or maybe popping an anti-depressant pill could help. just don't allow yourself to drown in your sorrow. you can fight it. and you can win over it.

i'll be praying for you, mike. {{{hugsss}}}

blessings,
bing

Mike, lifting you up in prayer....

Clueless said...

(((((((Mike))))))) I'm here for you. I hope that you do some things to be good to yourself and that are comforting. Praying for you Mike.

Blessings,
CC

Mike Golch said...

Bing,I would love to go walking down on the Ohio and Erie canal towpath that is so near near,but the seizures prevent that,swimming is out as well.I refuse to use thge anti-depressant pills any more.that's what I used in my attempt to kill myself in July.I will just have to ride thie out as I have in the past.listen to my Hammered Dulicmerd C/Ds and watch the HD videos that I have in my You Tube account.

Just Be Real,Thank you.

Mike Golch said...

C.C. I do have my music to listen to and I do try to play my Dulicmer as well.

Bing (PinkLady) said...

i believe in you, mike. you can get through this. we are with you in prayers.

Mike Golch said...

Bing(PinkLady),Lately it seems that Wed and Thursdays are my bad day of the week.it seems that both days are the ones that I really fell super down on.

Bing (PinkLady) said...

in that case, you've got the upperhand on this invisible foe. you know when it strikes. be ready to hit back. arm yourself with loads of funny dvd movies or uplifting music and start playing them early on those days. you can do this, mike. think of celestine and her unconditional love for you. this love will see you through. think of all the good things and blessings around you. {{{hugsss}}}

Mike Golch said...

Bing,I have different thing to do and watch.I miss taking a good drive and a good walk. both of those things are not options anymore.the other stuff that I have I can still enjoy.
