Such Are the Days…

It appears it`s been ages since I have had this urge. This urge to write, to feel the swish of the pen flowing across a page, a page that only moments ago was blank. Oh the smell of paper and the feel of ideas just flowing out of an ink pen! And these winter nights! […]

You`re Beautiful, Its True…

*Warning: Keep away from reach of narcissists. How many times do we look in the mirror and sigh/whine/dream for flawless skin, perfect hair, and hour-glass figures?

Aristotle and How Music Effects Emotions: “Music directly imitates the passions or states of the soul…when one listens to music that imitates a certain passion, he becomes imbued withthe same passion; and if over a […]
