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)

Blog Blast for Peace

WELCOME TO MY POSTING FOR BLOGPLAST FOR PEACE.


I decided to use 2 different videos for this years entry. On I saw over on Sometimes Saintly Nick's Site. the Second one is a John Lennon video. Both are powerful messages on their own. I think it is an added value with both of these together.

In my heart I guess I'm a "60s" person. I so believe in peace and love. I hate to see people persecuted just because they are different. This really hits me close to home. The amount of abuse my daughter has suffer because she is trans-gender is terrible. You see she was born with particle sex organs of both male and female. She never had a complete set of either. This was just recently found via ultra sound. She officially changed her name at the age 18 and begin living as a women. I admire for being able to do this. So many people filled with hate have treated her so badly. My question is "What would Jesus do?". We all need to love one another and be sensitive to those that are different. I guess I'll get off my soap box now. I have chosen to love all people even if they different in someway from me. Thank you for sharing Mike.

Great post, Mike! About the inner peace... why did you think I chose that subject..? Still getting there myself. We can try, can't we? :-)

jennifer said...

Continuing the wishes for peace a day later Mike. I hope that today is wonderful for you.

Annelisa said...

It's been a while since I saw that first video...and you're right,it is more powerful together with Imagine... I am sufficiently moved!

Peace to you and yours, Mike

Mike Golch said...

Tink, inner peace is a quest for me as well.I really do have to find a way to get my explosive anger under control.before I really lose the 2 people that matters them most to me.Celestine and of course myself is the other.

Jennifer,I slept most of today away.I am justy getting started.

Annelisa,I just had to use both these viseos for this years posting. they both speak to me and hopefully to someone else as well.

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Hi Mike! Great to see you in this years peace globe movement - I actually just saw you on twitter and bounced on over.

I love Wanda's comment, and find that all to often the words "What would Jesus do" are forgotten in "Man's" religious systems and churches. Sometimes they vary greatly. I think in each of our soul's lies the answer to "What would Jesus do". What does that have to do with peace? EVERYTHING .....

I must admit that it bothers me some peace messages are one that scoff at religion as a cause of war, when in all actuality, it was simply a bent and evil tool distorted and used by the wicked.

Anyway, I know that was kind of a rambling yadda yadda comment! It's late, and I just started typing.
Hope you are OUT of the doghouse ???

Peaced be with you,
Eric

Mike Golch said...

Eric (Speedcat)I'm working on getting out of the dog house.Thanks for stopping by.Peace be with you.
