Super Athletes

A Life-Changing Experience!

super athleteA well-known college quarterback once said that playing an instrument, such as the piano, is something that will ALWAYS remain within your inner being. It’s something that you can share with anyone and everyone within every age group. A pebble that makes that definitive “ripple effect” throughout your lifetime! Being active in sports is good, however, chasing the proverbial “sport’s rainbow” is like finding a needle-in-a-haystack that dissipates quickly as you age.

Story and Clark – The Inside Story

Sure, the Story & Clark pianos look great on the outside, but what about the quality on the inside? How does it really compare with other pianos? It turns out that the closer you look, the better Story & Clark pianos are. The attention Story & Clark gives to even minor (and normally unseen) details becomes evident upon close inspection and compares favorably against much more expensive better known brand pianos.

Consider these features:

A Pet’s Aura

In recent years, one of society’s mantras applied to politicians, government agencies and the business world, is this buzzword “transparency.”  Webster, and other sources, define this word as:  a)  Visible and easily seen through, recognized or detected.  My personal favorite, b)  having the property or quality of reflecting rays of light shining from behind and shining forward beyond!

Music As An Investment

music-moneyMusic is what’s known (most have heard) as the “universal language”! Music and musical instruments have always been symbolic in expressing the thoughts and feelings of mankind. A journey by which we are able to communicate rhythmic and melodic interpretations to one another, identifying our convictions, emotions, and passions.

Music can provoke a sensitive memory, reflecting a happy or sad reminder of past events, and, as it possesses this subliminal cleansing power, emotions are stirred and meaningful results can follow. Music often stimulates an energy that reaches deep down the innermost recesses of our hearts, sparked by a dynamic thunderous expression of  chords on a piano or just a soothing haunting melody by the master violinist. Music enchants the ethos of mankind and the world we live in!

Road Rage vs. Adagio

I read somewhere that “road rage is part of human nature”.   If that’s true, that means human nature begets rage and violence – you think?  Au contraire – violence begets violence!  Webster defines road rage as:  a motorist’s uncontrolled anger that is usually provoked by another motorist’s irritating act and is expressed in aggressive or violent behavior!”   AAA Motorist Org. reports aggressive driving contributes to over 50% of all traffic fatalities.  Watching 20/20’s “Losing It”, the other night, showed how automobile drivers, losing their patience and reacting with uncontrollable violence toward other drivers that abuse road etiquette, seems to be OK.  In front of their spouses, in front of their children, justifying their vengeance by flipping someone off, cursing, and even resorting to physical violence, what does it prove?

Piano Stabilization – First Priority!

piano-keyboard-keys-1183477Wood is a hydro-scopic material, that is, it absorbs moisture from the air of its own personal environment.  When the air is humid, wood expands and conversely, when dry, wood contracts.  A piano is 80% wood and 20% cast iron, steel, screws, felt and polymers.  All this wood is “under tremendous tension” due to glue-joints, laminating large wood planks for shaping and bending, back-post solid frame construction for load bearing capacity and, of course, the dignified solid wood soundboard to resound a quality rich tonal resonance for a “lifetime of musical enjoyment.”  The ideal humidity level for a piano is 45% moisture content in the room its in, however, this only exists in a “perfect world” which is practically unattainable so there are (2) important steps to ensure your piano will maintain stability while it remains in its original place and room of location.

Who Is God?

I heard someone that claims to have a unique “spiritual gift of wisdom” when asked that question, deliberately remained silent.   After a few moments he said that being silent was, in fact, the answer.  He said that any definition he could otherwise conjure up and utter would diminish who God really is.

To quote one of the great writers and philosophers in history Henry David Thoreau stated, “In human intercourse the tragedy begins, not when there is misunderstanding about words, but when SILENCE is not understood.”

Don’t Turn Back

Screen Shot 2016-03-28 at 6.29.24 PM“But [Lot’s] wife looked back…and she became a pillar of salt.”  This is found in the book of Genesis, Chapter 19 verse 26.  We may have heard before that the heart is as deep as an ocean, yet, the human heart is only the size of a “closed fist.”  The depth and magnitude of God’s Love and keeping power regarding the heart was declared by King Solomon in the book of Proverbs and King David in the book of Psalms, that 1) the Almighty God of the universe holds the hearts of men in His Hand and turns them as the rivers, and, 2) the Almighty God of the universe controls the elements as He holds the four winds in His Fist!

What are we trying to hold on to?  What possesses our vision?  Can we be looking backwards while moving forward to possess the future before us?
