Vocabulary Words

I was pret­ty young at the time, in ele­men­tary school. And I remem­ber we had these week­ly vocab­u­lary tests…ugh, not my favorite thing. The teacher would give us a new list of words each week, and we had to learn the spelling of each word as well as the def­i­n­i­tion. The most uncom­fort­able thing about the tests, by far, was that we couldn’t resort to just regur­gi­tat­ing the def­i­n­i­tion of each word and be done with it. (No way, life had to be hard­er than that… even in ele­men­tary school!)

A Gem of a Picture

It is always amaz­ing to me how every indi­vid­ual brings their own unique sparkle to the expe­ri­ence of music. I mean, you can sit down thir­ty peo­ple in a room, give each of them a sheet of paper and a box of crayons, put on some music for them to hear, and say “Lis­ten close­ly, and draw what it sounds like…”.… And despite the fact that all hear the exact same music in the same room at the same time, and all have the same col­ors of crayons, each per­son comes up with a total­ly dif­fer­ent and pre­cious gem of a pic­ture! Now, isn’t that kind of remark­able?
