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)

MtnGrl Musing: Music Monday

MtnGrl Musing: Music Monday
I am adding thisdue to the nature of her passing :

 Teena Marie was found dead in her Los Angeles home of an apparent grand mal seizure. She was 54 years old.

Born Mary Christine Brockert, Tenna Marie was a white woman who sang rhythm and blues. She signed with Motown in 1976 and teamed with funk legend, Rick James.

A seizure, according to the University of Michigan Health System, is an episode of abnormal electrical activity in the brain. A common seizure type is a grand mal seizure. It causes loss of consciousness, jerking or twitching of all four limbs, sometimes injury to the tongue or mouth, and sometimes urinary incontinence. Additional symptoms may include a pause in breathing and confusion and weakness following the event.

The Mayo Clinic states that grand mal seizures are sometimes caused by underlying health problems:

    * Very low levels of glucose, sodium, calcium, or magnesium
    * Traumatic head injuries
    * Using or withdrawing from drugs or alcohol
    * Brain tumors
    * Strokes
    * Certain infections such as encephalitis or meningitis
    * Injury due to a previous lack of oxygen
    * Blood vessel malformations in the brain
    * Genetic syndromes
Seizures are no fun,Thankfully I have not had a bad one in a long time.

A very talented woman indeed. What a shame.

I've seen a few grand mal seizures in my career. They are frightening to say the least. I'm glad you've not had a bad seizure in a very long time. Good for you.

Is Celestine doing better?

Have a terrific day Mike. Big hug. :)

Sandee,My Aunt Pat once said they almost lost me to a grand mul seizure one.Celestine is doing OK.

Thank you for posting it. I just wanted other people who don't know that the older names have changed:
Petit Mal are Absence seizures
Grand mal are Generalized tonic-clonic seizures. I feel old because I always have to look up the new names.

In my career, I've seen many people actively having seizures. People need to know that they should not put anything in their mouth or try to restrain them...just move things out of the way and make sure their head is safe even if that means your hands get a bit scraped, but it is better than their head hitting the ground. I've had to do this...it has always been a no brainer to me.

I am so glad that you haven't had one in a long time. I know how scary and how much it can take out of you. And, people are often quite embarrassed especially as you basically lose total control of your own body.

Sorry to go on so...

Clueless,when I was a Corrections Officer we were told to put our feet under the head of someone having a seizure that way they did not bange their head on the concrete floors.
'The really sad thing is that people who have seizures are shunned by loved one because they are embarresed.
