Captivating Music of the World!-Hawaiian Style!

One of the joys of travel is the exposure to the musics and dance of different cultures.

As readers of this blog know, my penchannt is for the Celtic, but  I am also always caught by the nystique and magic of the musics and dance of many cultures.

The prime requisite is the sharing of Spirit.

The sensuous allure of th stories told by the body movements of Polynnesian and Hawaiian dancers never fails to  capture my attention.

Here are some of my favourites from the Islands.

Dealing With the Symptoms! Ignoring the Causes!

Causes-EffectsWhen I was a youngster , I loved candy.The more the better, And Oh! So Good it was!
But then came the cankors, the boils, the sores, the scars in the mouth, until slowly the connection was made that too many sweets were causing the problems with the health.

And slowly m gruidgingly, the use of sweets lessened, until eventually the sores and health problems lessened, and were controlled..To this days , I still like sweets , occasionally, and ,perhaps rationalizing, used in a healthy way.
Or perhaps, at the very least , in a not so unhealthy way!
My government did not help very much . In fact it continues to allow the perpetuation,and indeed the proliferation of disease-producing drinks , and foods.
The perception of the connection between the revenue and tax producing benefits versus the health costs was kept very well hidden from the consumer(s) that paid the ultimate penalties.

Why all the talk of sweets, and that whicvh so many like , but related to such high costs down the road!

The spate of multiple slayings related to the continued use of guns , is I think a fitting analogy!Little is made of the connection between improper use of guns, and the attendant social conditions that give rise to so many problems – at such a high cost in human life, injury , and sufferering.

A few moment spent reviewing the compelling date and arguments presented by the Thrive movement may help shed a different light on the topic.

There is not ‘ simple ‘ answer , nor is there a simple remedy. However, a different approach to the use of guns, and the kinds of guns being made available to the masses , may help provide a better context for their use!


I mean -why are such a variety of lethal weapons needed! A machine gun to hunt a deer? or kill; a partridge! Does a Rambo really need to ride rampant near a kindergarten class?

From Here To There and Back Again!

So much beauty – sometimes such deadly beauty!
With the irony being that we are the unleashers of our own poison!
And in the name of progress!
A view moments viewing the story that surface during the following presentation can give us first a glimpse of nature’s beauty – then the meddling of man that unleashes deadly transformation.
And then the gradual asserrtion of the natural elements to restore the natural healing powers conatined by Mpther Earth..Eventyually, she ewind , and the naural beauity of the earth reeturns.

Unfortunate it is that the perpetrators, and along with them , the innocents, will not see the end of the process.
With a return of common sense , and an working working Mother Nature, our descendants will be here to enjoy that process- and to have learned to preserve and enjoy it.
Submissions are welcomed!

Celtic Code: Human Rights and Freedoms

We see and hear so much about ‘Honour “codes coming from different corners of the world, we should not forget that the Celts probably set the standard for functional codes, that protected the hard-won rights and freedoms acquired over the centuries.

Conduct in war, and treatment of the disadvantaged helped mark the evolution of civilization. mocracy 101- A Celtic Thrust!

Women had , and earned their own special roles in Celtic societies,and still do, although safeguards are wearing thin even though we are supposed to be advancing into the 21st Century.
