I once wrote about the http://flickrcomments.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/som-sabadell-flashmob/ in Spain performing Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”. An orchestra is a community, a strong community, maybe even with morality, with a certain readiness to take social responsibility. My friend Akbar Simonse introduced the orchestra of his Dutch hometown The Hague / Den Haag, The Netherlands, supporting a street musician:

  3. Reblogged this on catnipoflife and commented:
    Even though I have already posted for the day, who says you cannot post again? There are no rules (except the awards, of course) in the blogosphere. When I saw this on Alastair’s Blog, I knew exactly what its next destination would be…is this not perfectly exemplary of catnipoflife? Doesn’t it represent the epitome of catnip? Observe life at its best, listen to life’s songs, embrace life’s bounties, breathe the breath of life and savor life to its fullest!

    • I wondered where the reblog post had gone. It ended up in spam again and the Chrome extension told me there was no pending or spam when there was five :-(

  4. Music… music… sound of music… how great and how magical touches… Thank you dear Mondrak, it is so nice to know that there is still beautiful people in the running life that giving us beauties… Have a great weekend, love, nia
