This Journey song will caress with its soft chords and dreamy duet, but beware, the rite of passage is just in its infancy. Words of wisdom assist the listener as the orchestration builds up to ritualistic heights. A rock song that courageously breaks all sorts of new ground.
It took about 30 minutes for Rune to stop screaming just after being born. We started to get a bit worried, but we knew that he had also probably been awake throughout the 11-hour birth. He had been instinctually working together with his mother while in the same time wondering what’s going on. For a 9-month old, that’s a tough day, so no wonder he was a bit grumpy. Plus, breathing isn’t exactly something he was used to either.
Crina had lost more blood than is usual during the birth. This had me rather concerned for a while, but the midwives assured us that she will be fine. After the monumental effort she had been through, I was surprised to see her so alert, especially as I was slowly falling apart.
Never in my life had I abandoned myself in such a way. I hadn’t eaten since the day before, and it was almost 23:00. I lived through the birth with air and water alone. Now that the adrenaline was wearing off, I was beginning to realize just how starved I was. Luckily, the Swedes had something special in store for us…
Adventurous and evocative, tied to the ground with a strong bass line, this is one highly original body-mover. Rhythms transform, crescendos abound, the story unfolds and before the last vibration dies out there’s already an insatiable desire to have some more. So just hit play again!
In general, it’s good for a country to have large, powerful companies that employ a lot of people and pay them very well (more taxes). However, the resulting income inequality causes some serious trouble in communities hosting or close to high-pay hotspots.
One of the saddest examples is San Francisco, where property prices have skyrocketed during the past decade, mostly due to an influx of well-payed employees from corporations such as Google, Apple and Facebook as well as a host of tech startups and highly profitable medium-sized companies.
Dim the lights, light a candle, embrace, sway. True to its namesake, this atmospheric, moody and melancholy-inducing song features one of the warmest male vocal performances I’ve ever heard. Soothing guitars and gentle keyboards provide the ideal background while the sparingly-used percussion anchors the song to perfection.
There’s a saying that goes like this: while listening to this song for the first time, if you think of good memories, it will always bring you back to those beautiful moments when you listen to it again.
George Carlin is, hands down, my all-time favorite stand-up comedian. I am madly in love with the way his dark humor mercilessly punishes certain absurd traits of human civilization. Below, you can find some of my favorite moments from his illustrious career.
There are many kinds of Healing Songs. Powerful or unstoppable, divine or mystic, calming or embracing, tender or humble. There are Healing Songs for all sorts of hurts.
This vulnerable gem is here to seed the hope. All around us, there are unseen gifts that time allows us to witness in this life. This is one of them. When words fail, just lie down, open up and let yourself be soothed.
There’s some pretty interesting human activity going on in outer space during this period. For example, NASA recently launched InSight, yet another probe heading for Mars (yes, I do believe we’ve spending a bit too much on Mars). Along with that, they also launched two cubesats, the world’s first interplanetary such (cheaper) satellites. “MarCO-A and MarCO-B are demonstrating a number of cubesat technologies during their nearly 7-month cruise to Mars, including a folding high-gain antenna and a cold-gas propulsion system.”
Mysterious and epic, this tune is a transporter to other worlds. Transporter Songs aren’t easy to build. First of all, it takes a special kind of wind to move our soul’s sails. Mystic incantations can save us from the storm, but it’s Lori’s voice that fills the soul’s ethereal sails. Now, we’re prepared for the oceanic union underneath the guiding celestial bodies.
“Will my feet touch solid ground again?”
There’s no journey without waves, no life without vibration. The melody’s pulse is always with us – the patterned avatar of ocean waves. But just like getting lost at sea, a storm is in the making…
Draw a line between the position of two planets every several days and behold the apparition of beautiful shapes.
The article lists some other funky coincidences about the planetary bodies in our solar system. It’s written in a slightly “new age metaphysical” tone, but facts are facts and these are undoubtedly interesting facts. Personally, what I draw from all the above is a feeling of complete agreement with what a wiser person has said before me: “Mathematics is the language of nature” (and I perceive even physics and chemistry as flavors of mathematics).
