Corner View Wednesday: Music


Our home is filled with the harmonies of children, in their unselfconscious manner, enjoying music. They play on harmonicas, drums, egg shakers and other noise makers. The pound out songs on the piano and strum a guitar. We love music of all sorts, from every continent and most every genre. Someday, I would love to learn how to play the guitar and the violin.





Where we live, there is wonderful music to be enjoyed. From Street musicians who play downtown, to the weekly festivals and concerts there are always places to listen. On fridays, people gather downtown at the drumming circle. Some of my favorite local talents are Rising Appalachia, Toubab Krewe, and the Avett Brothers. Visit Jane's Spain Daily to see more corner view music from around the globe. Enjoy!

And just for fun... check out this animated music machine














My favorite music is currently the summer night songs, of crickets and wind, quiet and peaceful when the day is done and the chilren are snug in their beds. What is yours?

I love your pictures, I love your words, and I love your descriptions! My favorite song is when the window is rolled down in the car, the wind is whipping my hair around and I look like a lunatic singing at the top of my lungs :)

beautiful thoughts and photos! I used to listen to music from the moment I woke up until I went to bed at night. Many types of music. Didn't matter - I just loved having it on. Now, I crave quiet :)
