August B4Peace – I dedicate to my dad

A date thingy? Ah! Calendar

August 2013

Well, I did have this post written out in full, but when I went to place the above photo, the media library crashed and I lost it. So, now that I’m slightly miffed, this post is now a shortened version.

This month, Kozo, of banner, asks us to invoke the power of music for peace through either of the following:

  • Post a song or video of a song that has brought peace to your world. Feel free to explain how this music has created peace.
  • Tell a story about how music “tamed the savage beast.”
  • Write a song for peace. You don’t have to write the music, just the lyrics.
  • Sing a song for peace and write a post about what you felt.
  • Make a top 10 list of songs/artists that bring peace to our world.
  • Interview a songwriter about what inspired them to create music that you find peaceful.
  • Post anything about the intersection of music and peace.

Well, I’ll keep it short as promised and introduce you to Helen Jane Long. I find her music enlightening, beautiful and above all, peaceful. But, I’ll let you decide for yourselves.

And here are a couple more bloggers for peace for your perusal:
