The joy of music

It has been a lot of fun being back in a school band. I am in the symphonic band this semester and I really enjoy it. We have a concert this Friday. It should be a pretty good time. There are few of the pieces that are tougher than the others but I will give it my best shot. I will do the best I can to do my part well.
We are playing Imperatrix, Cahjun folk songs, hebrides suite, when the stars begin to fall, and another piece that is looney tune type of stuff.
Another thing that has been fun is that I am learning my scales better. I used to not know very many scales and now I know at least six of them. It is also fun learning about the transposing process.
Have a wonderful awesome day.

Times around the globe

So lately I have been thinking about what time it is around the world. I have friends that are on missions and I wonder what time it is where they are. So I made a list of places where my friends are on missions and the time it is where they are. Have a Wonderful day.

Words of Wisdom

The effect of our words and acts is tremendous in this world. Every moment of life you are changing to a degree the lives of the whole world. … So, it’s not the surroundings, it isn’t the positions; the thing that will influence [others] in this world, are personalities. No matter what you are people will feel and recognize this. You radiate, you can’t hide it. You may pretend something else, but that will not affect people.
