choral music, fo's, and a meme



This is how those of us who have no swift/ball winder make center pull balls of yarn.



Here's a close-up of that yarny goodness. Luscious, no? It's Lisa Souza, colorway "wild things." Darker and lusher in person. Ooooo, I love it.

CHORAL MUSIC

Check out this guy's face. My personal theory is that he reaaaally didn't like sopranos. Another plausible theory is that he was a deaf instrumentalist writing choral music. Whatever the reason, his Missa Solemnis is, and I feel quite strongly about this, NOT MEANT TO BE SUNG BY HUMANS. LOUD soft LOUD soft. HIGH low HIGH low. This is simply not rational human behavior.

This guy, on the other hand, makes me feel like a bird in flight, particularly in the two lovely lovely pieces we're preparing for my church choir: He that is down need fear no fall, and a setting of the 23rd psalm from Pilgrim's Progress. The only conclusion I can draw from comparing these two faces and their respective works' singability is.......... that it's not about the eyebrows.

I love this:

1. YOUR ROCK STAR NAME: ( pet and current street name) Josie Walnut That is so awesome.

2. YOUR MOVIE STAR NAME: (grandfather/grandmother on your moms side, your favorite candy) Helen Marzipan (ahem)

3. YOUR “FLY Guy/Girl” NAME: (first initial of last name, first three letters of your middle name) V. Eva Actually I don't really know what a fly girl is.

4. YOUR DETECTIVE NAME: (favorite color, favorite animal) Blue Dog (zzzzzzzz)

5. YOUR SOAP OPERA NAME: (middle name, city where you were born) Eva Hanover

6. YOUR STAR WARS NAME: (the first 3 letters of your last name, first 2 letters of your first name, first 2 letters of mom’s maiden name and first 3 letters of the town you grew up in.) Valalhenor

7. SUPERHERO NAME: (”The”, your favorite color, favorite drink) The Blue Caipirinha That does not sound like a superhero, but it's fun to spell

8. NASCAR NAME: (the first name of both your grandfathers) Thomas Ernst I also like the one that uses their middle names: Easen Wilhelm

9. FUTURISTIC NAME: ( the name of your favorite perfume/cologne and the name of your favorite shoes) Cinnamon Sandals (OK, I know NOTHING about perfumes and little more about shoe brands. Still, I kind of like Cinnamon Sandals)

10.WITNESS PROTECTION NAME: (mother/father’s middle name ) Louise None My Dad has no middle name, but what a witness protection name!!

Thanks to Lair of the Silkwyrm for this meme. Can't remember how I found her.

Finally, another pear dishcloth is born!
