The Potential And Purpose Of Music

The Potential And Purpose Of Music

The dictionary defines Music as "the science or art of combining tones into a composition having structure and continuity: Also as vocal or instrumental songs having rhythm, melody, or harmony.
This is a wonderfully academic definition and be it far from me to question the authority of the dictionary, however this definition describes more the process of producing music than it defines what music actually is. Music is far more than a science it is in fact a creative force a spiritual dimension of life. Music has been apart from the human experience in every culture and society of mankind since time began. From the earliest cultures of man until now music has been used to express a wide range of human emotions from love, joy and celebrity to sadness, anger and fear.Music has been used to inspire patriotism, incite wars and promote peace. Music is so much apart from us that we could not imagine a world or an existence that did not include this dimension of life. My point here is not to make a case for any particular genre of music but rather to help us understand that whether we know it or not the reason music is so much apart from us regardless of our age, race, cultural background, or preferred musical Genre and the reason it affects us the way it does is because in essence music is spiritual.

Understand that any thing that has the ability to alter our mood (positively or negatively), give language to feelings we can not express, or transport us back in time or forward into the future is a spiritual force. Music does all these things on varying levels. When we speak of things being spiritual we are speaking of that which possess the following: potential, purpose and power


At this point I must inform you that music like many other things in life such as money and even religion has the potential for good as well as evil. If we believe that music is spiritual than it is brutal
To understand that there is a good and an evil side to spirituality and spiritual things. For example the same knife that can be used to prepare a wonderful meal can also be used to mortally hurt some
One. The same wealth that can be used to feed the poor and promote positive change in the world could also be used to fund the trafficking of Illegal drugs or guns. In recent years the positive potential of music has been rediscovered as many mental health and therapy organizations are now including the use of music as a part of there therapy and recovery programs. Yet this is nothing new, in the bible there is a story of a great king named saul who was tormented in his soul and mind by an evil spirit. It was recommended to him that he employ the service of a skillful minstrel (musician). He was made aware of a young man named …

How Father Time Can Make You A Fashion Icon

How Father Time Can Make You A Fashion Icon

Time really does fly by and often it brings about certain psychological peculiarities in the fashion realm. Years ago I remember my elder's talking and showing me their iconic fashion pieces such as their leather jacket, suit, coat, sunglasses, wallet, etc. Mentioning them as a matter of fact or sometimes with boastful pride that they've had these items far longer than I was as alive at the time. And because they were from a different era, they only had one signature piece that they wore regularly. These pieces were fashionable and functional, and still remained so decades after they bought them. Whether it was a question that the clothes matched the middle age person or if it was the clothes themselves as a stand-alone were the main attraction it's a matter of opinion based on emotion.

Fashion houses today produce hot & trendy stuff which are quickly forgotten in the next season, stuff which include replicas of those traditional Americana pieces. Despite their vintage designer label how many people will actually keep these items as long as their grandsparents – the Real McCoys of yesterday? Ironically these Americana replica items are now made overseas because of cost controls (aka cheap labor), not in the USA where the originals were made.

Additionally our elders were able to keep these items much longer not just because the quality was superior but their hard-working blue collar lifestyle kept them from becoming obese. Nowadays people must discard or donate their clothing every so often because of a sedentary lifestyle. Gramps could still fit comfortably into his leather jacket when he bought it when he was a whipper-snapper.

Now that I'm older I realized that there are several items which I bought in the 20th century, made in the USA, that are durable, functional and continue to be stylish including rugged goose-down jackets when they were first introduced and leather jackets Made of thick horsehide that is so heavy that it almost bullets bullet-proof.

When we realize and admit that you're becoming your father or mother it's certainly true in the fashion sense for a particular generation. So what does this all mean? It means that Father Time has passed the torch to you and now you represent that era when great clothes made the man and woman, a walking promotion that iconic symbols of what luxury is all about: class, functionality, durability and, of course, stylishness . …

What Is a Charm Bracelet?

What Is a Charm Bracelet?

Charm bracelets have been around for thousands of years, but the trend for wearing them has changed and developed dramatically during this time.

For instance, one of the most iconic images of a charm bracelet is that of bored jeweller Tiffany and Co, who introduced their first charm bracelet in 1889. This was a silver link bracelet with just one charm, a dangling heart. This heart charm has since gone on to become something of a trademark for Tiffany's.

Charm bracelets and the wearing of charms dates back as far as 600 BC with materials such as clay and bone being used. It is also thought that back then charms were worn as a sort of talisman to represent good luck and fight off evil spirits.

The meaning and functionality of charm bracelets has also changed with time. In wartime, soldiers would bring home charms as a form of trinket for their loved ones, something made by a local craftsman that could be kept and worn as a memento of the place in which the soldier saw action. The 1950s saw these bracelets popularized by children, who would collect charms to represent different events and special occasions that occurred as they were growing up.

However, the latest incarnation of charm bracelets have been largely created in Europe, particularly Denmark where the brand Trollbeads led the resurgence during the seventies. These charm bracelets were of a modular design, meaning that charms were built to fit a particular threaded system employed by that make. For example, Pandora, another Danish jeweller and currently the market leader with over 900 different types of charms, uses a patented system which means their charms will not fit on other bracelets. These systems also ensure that charms fit securely onto their intended bracelet, where they can be added and removed with ease.

In addition, many charm companies include optional spacers or clips, which are a form of smaller charm that remain in a fixed position on the bracelet as a way of sectioning off charms and stopping them from sliding around the bracelet. Other brands that use threading systems in their bracelet design include Lovelinks by Aagaard, Chamilia and Links of London.

Since Europe leads the charge when it comes to manufacturing these charm systems, they also proved to be hugely popular in North America. The main draw of these more modern charm systems is the versatility they offer. Bracelets are still available as chain links, and these can take a limited number of dangling charms. However, more common are the solid bracelets which charms can be twisted onto. The bracelets are typically available in polished silver, oxidised silver, gold and sometimes leather.

Likewise the charms are crafted from a number of different materials and this, along with their design can affect the price veryly. Usually charms, or beads as they are sometimes referred to, are made from sterling silver, but are also available with enamel detail, semi-precious stones and gemstones, 14k gold and even wood. …

Make a Small Room Look Larger With Art Wall Decals

Make a Small Room Look Larger With Art Wall Decals

If you have a small place there is no reason to stare at plain white walls. Decorating the walls in a smaller living space is often challenging but makes all the difference when creating a cozy space. No matter how small the room is, if it is warm and inviting, it will make friends and family feel right at home. Here are a few tips to make a room look larger with art wall decals.

Choose the right pattern or theme to create the illusion of a bigger space. There are literally a multitude of themes and designs to choose from when decorating the walls in your place. Choose light-colored backgrounds that match with colors in your decals to coordinate the room colors. For example, nature designs with earth colors of green and brown would look good on a wall painted in tan or butterscotch. Match accessory colors to accent colors in the design to complete the look.

Keep the space open by careful furniture placement. Placing furniture in an open design makes a room look bigger. A simple couch and chair in a matching solid color with an accent rug or small table makes a cozy living area for sitting and relaxing with friends.

Choose a pattern or design of art wall decals to match the color and furnishings of the room. Some people like a nature theme with trees and or a modern Art Deco look with odd shapes or bold designs. Large patterns are fine with minimal furnishings and can become the focal point of the room. Place a couple of lovely decorative mirrors where they will reflect the wall scenes to make it appear as if the scene continues into another room adding to the illusion of more space.

Additional decorating tips:

Let functional spaces do double duty if possible. A bookshelf placed in a corner can double as a place to store small trinkets and knick-knacks without cluttering up the space. The right light fixtures can add depth to a room when placed close to a mirror or other reflective surface, the brighter the light the larger the room looks.

Reasons to decorate with decals:

· Decals are not only stylish and attractive, but create a look that is all your own.

· Economical way to decorate because the designs can be removed when you decide it’s time for a change.

· Create a focal point to draw attention away from problem areas such as uneven walls or oddly-shaped corners.

Wall decorations such as decals, stickers or stencils make a space unique and express the owner’s personal style. They are suitable for just about any room in your home, from bedroom to kitchen; decals are a great way to decorate the way you like. Even if your landlord will not let you paint, there is no reason to have boring white walls when art wall decals are so easy to use and remove when you move to a new place.…

How to Paint Laminate Countertops – 4 Easy Steps

How to Paint Laminate Countertops – 4 Easy Steps

We are often asked how to paint an existing laminate countertop, and if it is even possible. Yes, you can paint countertops, but you need to prepare the countertop surface carefully beforehand with special primer. Here's how.

(1) Wash the countertop with some ammonia-based cleaner or some warm ammonia diluted with water. Get it as clean as possible, removing all dirt and grime. When the surface is dry, you may wish to put strips of low-tack painter's tape on any trim around the countertop.

(2) The next step is to prime the countertop surface with a bonding primer, this will make sure the paint will stick to a non-porous surface. Some good bonding primers are XIM 400, Sherwin-Williams PrepRite®, or Zinssers Bin. Follow the primer manufacturers instructions; Plan on allowing the primer to set for about 24 hours before painting. The odor can be strong, so consider opening windows and closing the room off from the rest of the house when using these products.

(3) When the primer is dry, it's time to paint your selected new color paint to the existing laminate countertop. Nothing changes a kitchen's look quite so much as countertop finishes, so make sure you've matched swatches to your existing colors – appliances, walls, flooring and all. If you use your laminate countertops to prepare food directly on, use water based paint; The chemicals in oil based paints may leech into your food, which is not a good thing. Apply two to three thin layers of paint, letting them dry between each coating. If you like, and are feeling creative, you can stencil-paint some patterned borders on your laminate countertops new base paint as well at this point.

(4) The final step is to seal the paint. Three coats of satin or high-gloss non-yellowing polyurethane will give you maximum durability. I prefer water-based sealer; It will not alter the appearance of your paint's colors when it dries. Allow the sealer to dry 24 hrs. You might have to order take-out dinners for a couple of days, but it will be worth it when you see your fabulous new painted laminate countertops in your kitchen. …

eBay – The Importance of Effective Listings

eBay – The Importance of Effective Listings

No matter what type the market is, a big incentive for a customer to buy an item comes from the trustworthiness and knowledge ability that a seller displays. Although you will most likely never come face-to-face with your clientele on eBay, how you market your merchandise in your listings can either make or break a sale. Here are the basics to listing an item on eBay effectively.

Before you sit down to write a listing, there are a few things you need to decide concerning the item you’re about to sell. First, weigh and measure the item before listing to help determine shipping charges.

Unlike newspaper ads, a photograph of your product is free to add, so take advantage of this. Buyers have only sellers’ listings to use in accessing which items to purchase, so make your listing stand out; pictures are a great way to enhance your item’s chance of being sold. Place the item in a well-lit and uncluttered area. If people have problems discerning the product from evidence of your daily life, they probably won’t take you seriously.

Once a registered member on eBay, you can click on the “Sell” tab at the top of the screen to begin the listing process. The first thing for you to create is a title: the first phrase introducing a potential buyer to your listing. The more specific your title is, the more chances you have to attract buyers. For example, “Antique Quilt” tells a buyer nothing, whereas “1920’s Double Wedding Ring King Size Quilt” narrows the search and attracts a buyers attention. Avoid words like ‘cool’ ‘excellent ‘amazing’ and the like because you’re only wasting the small amount of space provided to you.

The next part of a listing’s text is the item’s description. Don’t be afraid on this section to include as much information on your product as you can; what you think is too much detail could be the difference between a sell and no sell. However, be professional and honest with in this section highlight the features of your product but also pointing out any of its defects. And, be friendly! People like feeling welcomed and will avoid intimidation. In both the title and the description, it is important to use correct spelling, punctuation, and grammar. This will optimize people’s ability to read the text, especially those whose English is a second language.

Once you have written the text and uploaded your item’s photos, you should choose one of two selling options: auction or “Buy it Now.” Again, auctioning works best for items that are less common the fixed rate option is for popular products or items that people might need immediately.

Be sure to set your price, buyer payment methods as well as shipping and handling fees. Make sure to look everything over – a mistake could cost you a sale or could even result a bad feedback score from a buyer. Save your listing and hit the ‘submit’ button. You will receive an email …
