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?
