We naturally 'know' how to sing in perfect harmony -- so why don't we???
Very, very cool.
I experienced some harmony when I joined up with the Loney Mountain Tabernacle Fellowshippin Choir...but they didn't care much for me addin in 'oom papa mow mow' after every chorus, which eroded the harmony...man, you ever been beat unconscious with a tamborine?--its purty not good
But I reckon ol' Paul sorta summed it up when he said he knowed how to do good, but didn't. I reckon that ought to challenge us to do better...heck that should be on our short list every day.
If you get into homes that aren't so hegemonically identified, you get music, harmony, rapture, and then dinner. Or dinner first.
Same thing in Brasil or Mali or Tibet.
And as for music, harmony, rapture and dinner, that's what happens every time I get together with my friends. It's just who we are as collective spirits.
Speaking of dinner -- it's served at my blog.
You are now digging into the Pythagorean understanding of God's methods of cosmic construction,the Divine proportion, the singing of the spheres, and the Geometria of the Word.
All in natural song.
Careful, you might learn something that you did not know could be there.
Could it ever come about or is that relegated to pre-literate history?
The ground is shaking from the steady march.
Part of why we are getting all these volatile reactions from those cultures chained to a text-based fundamentalism.
And if some of these ostracized and personality disordered young men had read more literature, like Catcher in the Rye, they might have found a different way out of their madness than video/cinematic blood spilling.
(GKS is waging a side war like an assassin.)
Close encounters was not such a fantasy.
What percentage of your family, friends, acquaintances, have you heard sing in public with ease and un-self-consciousness?
If hymns count, family-all of them, friends-some of them, acquaintances very few.
As solo performances, I have several songster friends and my daughter performed for several years when she was younger.
