Los bravos a la plaza, y los mansos al corral

The fierce to the bullring go, the tame to the cattle pen

This characterizes Mexican defiance: He who fails to face life fiercely is deemed dishonourable and is shamefully compared to a bull not worthy of the bullring.

In bullfighting there is a term called querencia. The querencia is the spot in the ring to which the bull returns. Each bull has a different querencia, but as the bullfight continues, and the animal becomes more threatened, it returns more and more often to his spot.As he returns to his querencia, he becomes more predictable. And so, in the end, the matador is able to kill the bull because instead of trying something new, the bull returns to what is familiar. His comfort zone.

“I hope to refine music, study it, try to find some area that I can unlock… These can’t be the only notes in the world, there’s got to be other notes some place, in some dimension, between the cracks on the piano keys.”

~ Marvin Gaye

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,
Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.

The hula is pleasing because of the drummer.

I le`a ka hula i ka ho`opa`a.

The lesser details that one pays little attention to are just as important as the major ones. Although the attention is given to the dancer, the drummer and chanter play an important role in the dance.

“Bright Idea #91: When the weather’s bad and your lights go out, have a pyjama party. Eat till you feel sick, hula-hoop, paint your faces. Catch fireflies, and dance naked in the rain. If you do, then your bare butt will light up like a firefly after it’s been let out of a jar.”

Sandra Kring, The Book Of Bright Ideas

Where there are experts there will be no lack of learners.

Also, don’t listen to music that is degrading. . . .Instead, we encourage you to listen to uplifting music, both popular and classical, that builds the spirit. Learn some favourite hymns from our new hymnbook that build faith and spirituality. Attend dances where the music and the lighting and the dance movements are conducive to the Spirit. Watch those shows and entertainment that lift the spirit and promote clean thoughts and actions. Read books and magazines that do the same.

What’s the difference between a violin and a viola?

There is no difference. The violin just looks smaller because the

violinist’s head is so much bigger.

Do you ever have the feeling that your clown talks too much?

“No clowns were funny. That was the whole purpose of a clown. People laughed at clowns, but only out of nervousness. The point of clowns was that, after watching them, anything else that happened seemed enjoyable”

Do not judge men by mere appearances; for the light laughter that bubbles on the lip often mantles over the depths of sadness, and the serious look may be the sober veil that covers a divine peace and joy.

Edward Chapin

Life, said Samuel Butler, is like giving a concert on the violin while learning to play the instrument—that, friends, is real wisdom.

“I inherited a painting and a violin which turned out to be a Rembrandt and a Stradivarius. Unfortunately, Rembrandt made lousy violins and Stradivarius was a terrible painter.
