Had I produced a child, he/she would've probably looked at the baton and then stuck it in his/her eye. Sigh.
What the hell? Are those clams?
Jim. Thank you. That fed my soul, truly. Thank you for your kindest words on my blog yesterday. I really needed them. You are a reliable pal. Thanks.
Barbara, those are wooden dowel-like things sticking out of what looks like part of a ships hull.
Good try Jim, but I'm afraid it's going to take more than that to make me enthusiastic this time of year. BUT> I'm happy for your enthusiasm!
Pure joy! If I'm still around in 20 or so years, I'm going to be on the lookout for a rising conductor with the first name of Jonathan.
love your pics, so different than what i see out the window at this time! cute kid and really good in the beginning, better than some conductors! jill
Beethoven would be pleased! Except for the picking-his-nose part.
Interesting pictures, I thought maybe ship parts, wasn't sure. Sorry about the link, no MB to use on videos today :(I was enthusiastic yesterday, as I finished my womb, but now that it's as good as it's gonna get, I'm just tired. :-) Pleasantly tired.
I've led music for a number of years and I can tell you that this kid has got great timing--He's got all the moves and is going to make one heck of a maestro!!As far as enthusiasm, I really had it yesterday thinking that we were going to get some great snow here in Virginia (I even bought new boots on Monday!) But I guess all my enthusiasm scared it away because it was practically a no-show!!
Very cool images!
Bloody hell! I watched that video of the three year old conducting and it gave me goose bumps.... in an amazing, overawed way. The timing and appreciation of the music makes that kid a potential prodigy in my book. I might have to nick it for my blog (again!)P.S. Jim, the photos you took are gorgeous. I love looking at your photos.
P.S. I loved the way the little chap stopped to wipe the snot off his nose halfway through, and then burst into giggles and rolled off his 'podium' when he had finished. It reinforced that he was only three. Awwww!
Annie, nick away!!!!!
The old washed up wood really caught my attention. Looks like they have been there many a year. It made for some fantastic pics!Oh, the young man is very good! Thanks for the smile. hugs.
AJ, this was the first time we have seen this on this beach......we have lived here for about 20 years. Mind you, it may have been buried because there has been a lot of sand-shifting in the past year. It is old for sure and appears to be a hull.....I am no authority on ships though.
That kid is an absolute natural!!! Loved it!
Wow, that wreck makes me wonder about the history of shipping in your area. The Strait of Juan de Fuca has maps of the shipwrecks that occurred there (many). Is your area a cold-water diver's paradise? The beaches are so lovely.
Thanks so much for sharing the link to that amazing 3-year-old! He's fabulous. Jim, I've responded to your comment on my blog in the comments because I don't think I have your email address. If I have it, I don't realize it.
your photos in this post just blow me away they are so beautiful.. in the second one down, i want those stones on the beach next to the wood... can i have them, please? i collect stones.... awesome, just awesome... and yes i am jealous..
Thanks for the pick-me-up! With all the snow we've gotten and the winds, I needed it! :)
At least he feels the music. Some conductors don't and only go through the motions.Your Friend, m.
