    We are all shaped by events and conditions from our childhood, and besides the fact that it it is a splendid classical instrument, Spanish guitar has special meaning for me because it is the first instrument I remember my mother singing to.

    It reminds me of a line from 'Eres tú' -
    'Como una guitarra en la noche'. Such a warm, comforting sound; there's really nothing like it.

    Thank you, Javier, for your comprehensive presentation of the history of the Spanish guitar and some well chosen examples of how it may be mastered. I am in awe of those you can play this instrument seemingly effortlessly, whereas I have only ever learned the unsubtle art of strumming a few chords in basic rhythm to the odd tune.

    #7 @Javier 🐝 beBee I've noticed lately that Flurocarbon polymer classical guitar strings are in vogue lately --I must admit; that although that was the first (and only type of guitar that I took lessons on --from about ages 9-12 --and did manage to make to the "push through the pain part")...I haven't tried to play a Spanish Classical Guitar in MANY years!
    I stick with my "skinny neck" '58 Gibson Acoustic...and even skinnier, necked Fender Mustang electric...with the lowest action possible, LOL!

    #5 Classical guitar strings are strings manufactured for use on classical guitars. While steel-string acoustic guitar strings and electric guitar strings are made of metal, modern classical guitar strings are made of nylon and nylon wound with wire, which produces a different sound to the metal strings. Classical guitar strings were originally made with animal intestine and silk wound with animal intestine up until World War II, when war restrictions led Albert Augustine Ltd. to develop nylon strings. Nylon guitar strings were put into production in 1948. Strings made from Fluorocarbon polymers have since been developed and are the main alternative to nylon strings.
    Gerald Hecht
    19/02/2017 #6 Gerald Hecht
    They were originally catgut as I recall...they still have a very wide neck, and the action is high --once you can make barres on a real Spanish Guitar (whether Nylon or Gut); it makes playing any other guitar seam Ike child's play (if you can stick with it...and push through the pain ;-)
    You will also be able to shake hands with anyone (left hand --if you are a "rightey"...and break every bone in the other person's hand --so be careful with that superpower!

    "4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away." (1 Corinthians 13:4-8)

    Emergence as art is always fascinating. It is interesting that the Mandelbrot set which also looks so beautiful is not its natural colour and the process of colouring is interesting in itself. The link below takes us through that :

    Colouring the Mandelbrot Set

    This article describes "escape time" and goes on to say :

    "If we know that a particular point generates a sequence which escapes, and we know the escape time of that sequence, then we can color that point based upon its escape time. By doing this, pretty spectacular images can be created."

    Colour brings home the details that would otherwise be missed in the natural black and white and adds the one quality to complexity that all humans appreciate, that of beauty.

    What a great inference you drew with the story about the little prince and Social Media @Alban JARRY. This stood out, "From the imagery of this author so many situations arise that seem so real in today’s world that the Little Prince undoubtedly gives us the keys to better discover others and deepen our introspection." That is one of the beautiful wonders of utilizing social media , deeper introspection by means of learning from others, respect of others and passions or goals we may share which can lead to professional relationships and/or deep friendships as well.

    I while back, I got to join some good friends on their local community radio show to play some tunes and tell some stories. Community radio is one of the original social media platforms and it is still as relevant today as years ago. Here I'm covering Paul Simon's Under African Skies, with background vocals by my friend Marion Drexler and backed up on base guitar by her husband Don.

    This recording was done on an iPad I had set up in the corner, so the audio quality is not studio good, but gives you an idea of the fun we had.

    #10 Though I appreciate your respect for Leonardo, I beg to differ on his training regimen. He was apprenticed to Andrea del Verrochio in his mid teens. He learned to both paint and sculpt with a heavy concentration on the rigours of rendering the figure. He then stayed on as an assistant to Verrochio until 1478 when he started his own studio at the age of 26.

    Interesting how the individual who came up with the technique of perspective in drawing was 'just an artist' to his contemporaries, even if later on he went on to build unprecedented inventions and create the anatomical diagrams that have survived up to our time. This artista didn't have any formal training and yet managed to outperform most profesdional artists and engineers since the Rennaissance times where he lived. You may have heard of him. His name was Leonardo da Vinci.

    #7 Dear Paul. Not necessarily. I entered a world where everyone expected me to have to compromise . I didn't. At 9 I chose to become a portrait painter (much to the consternation of my father!) I wanted to earn my living doing what I loved to do. And so, I was determined to be recognized for portraits by "Poulin" not by everyone who thought they could tell me how. I have therefore rarely shown a work in progress to a client. My mantra is that they chose me to do a portrait - so let "me" do the job "my" way. Otherwise, I send clients to someone else who is willing to compromise. This old buzzard isn't ready to do that yet. . . :)

    Amateurs remind us of where we were. Those horrifying days of low confidence and minimal acceptance. But we have arrived now, we have confidence and enough of a following that we feel vindicated from the amateur title.

    Amateurs are the fruit of life. We know their journey if we share a common theme of existence. The journey will be one of enlightenment, challenges and surprise victories. Every new adventure carries this cycle. The peanut gallery lurking in the shadows poking at the journey have lost their sense of adventure. They have arrived, not sure where, but they think it is a place of success.

    I envy the "amateur". They have before them the (another) journey of a life time. I have pity for those who have arrived, they have parked at something that others deem as success and lost their appetite for starting new adventures or becoming an amateur again.

    Great post and i enjoyed the perspective.

    #4 Agree. If only we were all happy just being who we are and doing with pleasure what we do. But in our sad day and age, we are star struck and those who do not feel like they are stars but wish to be seen so often spend a lot of time and energy trying to be seen to "be" one (a star, that is). Happiness is focusing on doing not being.

    What comes to mind is an amateur golfer - someone who has never turned professional or won a professional major championship. IMO, that doesn't make them any less talented than a pro. I agree with @Aleta Curry where the amateur was greatly appreciated. An amateur may signify a young but extremely talented person trying to move up the ranks.

    If a person is happy and proud of what they are doing, then being referred to as an amateur or an artist should not make them feel as an ordinary or lesser person. Close

    Excellent, @Bernard Poulin. Interestingly, I have always moved in at least one sphere where the amateur *was* greatly appreciated: Dog Fancy (how many people make their whole living showing and breeding dogs, yet it's a respectable and multi-million dollar business), Acting (the Pantomime and Repertory system forms, though of course we now have actors with degrees disdaining those without) and even my academic disciplines, Film and History (consider the role of the amateur in Historical Recreation, Costumes, Artisans and craft skills) and now, in Antiquing - well, any antiques dealer who doesn't know that sooner or later s/he'll run into an amateur collector who knows more about the specialised field than the dealer does, is either deluded or a moron.

    What an interesting post Bernard. I see an 'art' in many of the things I do, whether it results in a painting, a story, a cold/boring dining room turned into a winter wonderland for the enjoyment of military personnel, or (and I mean this absolutely;) designing reporting metrics for the logistics department or a tracking system for a retails sales department. All these come from the same part of me. I step back and in my mind's eye I see the painting, or I watch the story unfold, or I see how to simplify an excel spreadsheet so that it can contribute to the company long after my 'contract to work' has ended. It is this inner designer's eye that allows me to turn the most mundane of tasks into my 'art'.
    It is explaining this concept of 'art' that is the most difficult and most often met with those oh so frustrating smiles of tolerance. It is those 'tolerant' snobs that just don't grasp that design, is design, is design, and it all originates from the same place within the artist and the 'results' are in fact irrelevant, it is enough that it satisfies that need to 'create'. Other's definitions of 'artists' aren't really that important when the artist's 'need' is satisfied. I chose long ago to see their not understanding as being a source of amusement. I 'get it' and that's all that matters.

    Even the comment box can be a place of creativity. Please read @Savvy Raj's comment to @Ali Anani's buzz.

    "The static and the dynamic are both a dance of stillness and movement in the river of time.

    There is both the overlay of stillness in the movements .
    And the underlying movements in the stillness.

    Imagination traverses far
    Moving dimensions
    Mirroring and blending
    Adapting and creating
    In the duality is the oneness
    All unifying in the circle of life

    Both the invisible and visible
    Energy in the stillness
    Energy in the motion
    Orchestrated in the flow
    And the rhythms of life and living.
    A few verses inspired by this article by
    @ Ali Anani and this honeycomb of ideas and the amazing reflections ."

    @Savvy Raj did you know that bees dance. Yup , its true !!! they do dance called the 'waggle' which at the end both fly off in different directions , the one having told the other where the sweetest nectar is to be found. So dancing is communication is it not? when we meet you will have to teach me how to dance !!!

    Thanks for the tag @Chas ✌️ Wyatt. Very happy to join the hive. Love the Byron quote and already appreciate your first selection and the discussion that has evolved. This excerpt from a Kirkus Review describes why I think THE WORLD IN SIX SONGS by Daniel Levitin is a must read: “Music played a key role in making societies and civilizations possible. So argues research scientist Levitin (Laboratory for Musical Perception, Cognition, and Expertise/McGill University; This Is Your Brain on Music, 2006, etc.), who believes that music and the human brain co-evolved. What distinguishes us from all other species, he declares, is not language or use of tools, but the impulse toward artistic expression. The auditory art of music became part of our brain's wiring tens of thousands of years ago, and human nature has been shaped by six broad categories of songs, by which Levitin means music of all kinds. Devoting a chapter to each category-friendship, joy, comfort, knowledge, religion and love-the author speculates about its origins and how it influenced the human spirit over thousands of generations. Levitin sees songs as efficient systems for preserving tribal histories, transmitting essential how-to information from generation to generation and communicating spiritual feelings and deep emotions.”

    One of the peculiarities about residing in an age with an abundance of media is that we do not usually listen to music that someone has not given some context or meaning to. We are more readily to listen to Salif Keita because it visually captured a scene in the movie about Mohammad Ali in "When We Were Kings" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7Rulsk1tWk and still not know who Salif Kaita was or is. With or without context the appreciation I have for music is commensurate to the talent that produced it and in this case the context is enhanced with a nicely crafted slideshow of africa and it's people.

    Portrait of a Living Legend
    Portrait of a Living LegendDeep in the heart of Switzerland’s Jura mountains lives an unassuming but extremely charismatic gentleman by the name of Philippe Dufour. It is quite possible, and highly probable that the name does not ring a bell. He has no need to...

    #15 I am glad that this article insights passion that is not materialistic, but more of an appreciation of dedication and craftsmanship. Thanks for stopping by @Ali Anani. The Simplicity is a grail watch for many collectors, and a grail that many will never achieve as they are simply too rare. They are certainly not the most complicated of watches, lacking much sought after complications such as perpetual calendars or tourbillons, but in terms of finishing, the techniques involved are exceptional.
    Dean Owen
    15/11/2016 #18 Dean Owen
    #13 Thanks for stopping by @Sara Jacobovici. The Quartz crisis in the 1980's almost wiped out the Swiss watch industry and CNC machining took the soul out of mechanicals. The industry had to adapt, and it's survival is often credited to Nicolas Hayek, Co-founder of the Swatch Group, but credit must also be given to the numerous independents like Dufour, who created desire by innovating and perfecting arduous and old techniques in finishing.

    @Dean Owen- a great buzz and you convinced me time is an investment and an input. It takes Dufour nearly 2,000 hrs to make a watch that reads time! Time is patience and time is Simplicity- simplifying complicated processes with patience and sheer creativity.

    I echo the words of your readers @Dean Owen; great article. I consider us creative beings (and each an artisan in our own way as @Kevin Pashuk wrote #8). It never ceases to amaze me how we express our creativity and reflect what we're drawn to or what awes us. Time is definitely a shared human experience, a universal, cross-cultural, cross-generational part of our existence and we have always tried, and continue, to make sense of it. The combination of creativity, artistry and craftsmanship that produces these watches, objects/devices, that measure time, have the power of transcending their function.

    It is always inspiring to read about true artisans... in this case a watchmaker, but I have found them in every arena of life. For example, I watch (and am amazed at) the skill my wife has in dealing with people going through crisis. In my eyes, she is an artisan of compassion.

    Great posting @Dean Owen!
    Dean Owen
    26/04/2016 #7 Dean Owen
    Too true @Qamar Ali Khan. Dufour left the established watch industry to go independent because he felt the industry had lost it's focus and became a huge marketing machine. He could easily now turn his reputation into a multi-million dollar brand, but is just happy to churn out around 5 watches a year now making no compromise on the quality of the product. There are watchmakers like Richard Mille lead hugely lavish lifestyles with models, race cars, speed boats and movie stars. Not Dufour. Thanks for reading and sharing! Much appreciated.

    Ahhh, a lesson to be learnt here that the best don't need to advertise. The ones that do, typically LVMH or Swatch group companies like IWC, understand that many luxury watch purchases are made overseas so a plane makes perfect sense.

    Your impressive list puts my Casio Edifice to shame. I must admit, however, to perusing the photographs of impressive watches on flight magazines on my business trips.

    Indeed @Ken Boddie, but not just the Swiss, but the Germans (Lang & Heyne, A. Lange & Sohne), but also the Brits, (Roger Smith), plus a number of highly skilled watchmakers in Russia (Konstantin Chaykin), Japan (Hajime Asaoka), Ireland (the McGonigle brothers) just to name a few.

    I couldn't feel, so I tried to touch
    I've told the truth, I didn't come to fool you
    And even though it all went wrong
    I'll stand before the Lord of Song
    With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

    "So I feel somewhat like a charlatan to accept an award for an activity which I do not command". Amazing quote and I wonder how many things come to us without ever grasping their source. How many creative ideas came to my mind without know how. Poetry is creativity and we have no command on creativity. This is the paradox: creativity and command work against each other and I wonder if we would ever know the source of creative ideas for we shall command them and if we do our creativity shrinks. Thank you @Sara Jacobovici for this wonderful sharing

    #59 Thank you @Sara Jacobovivi for the warm welcome. Consciousness and intelligence are synonymous for me. Asking the question where is intellignece, asks the mind for a point of reference and it is no where. When we use no thought to interpret it simply is here, present.

    #57 Dear Joanne, just to add to your thoughts ...from some reading I had done recently. I share thus:
    Observing thoughts as they surface and get replaced by other thoughts is Awareness. (This is generally done by observing the Breath calmly in a sitting posture, with closed eyes). Being deep in thought, evaluating an idea, process or concept is Contemplation. Focusing mentally on a Thought form/idea/ sound is akin to Meditation. A great lot of importance is given to the breathing rhythm and frequency which resonates with our thoughts and even health.

    #33 Jawad Bhai! Thank you for the kind words! Everyone we meet here on this platform connects us either to the past, the present or the future. And helps us Branch out. Take deeper root. As fractals. As forms. As ideators. As creators. As rationalists. Or otherwise - setting up a flow. To help us Grow. I get so distraught at the paucity of time! So much to share and catch up on, but I steal moments off and on to read, respond, participate and share the best I can. My beBee interface is almost always on through the waking hours. I am a short-form communicator mostly. I have been writing off and on through the years, but in short couplets, paras, even doggerel, that fits the thoughts. But I believe I can get into a blogging mode eventually.

    #57 #58 First, let me say how wonderful it is to see you on beBee @Joanne Swecker. Your comment is proof already of what a wonderful contribution you are and will be making to this site. Your comment is beautifully written and conceived. No less is the proof that it has inspired @Ali Anani. My gut/heart reaction to your comment Joanne is that you are introducing the concept of thoughts as an entity in and of themselves that can move in and out of our thought consciousness to be experienced but not owned. This inspires me to revisit Jung's collective unconscious and see how your insight/perspective fits in.

    #57 Not less even by one inch what your comments inspire me with dear @Joanne Swecker.

    02/11/2016 #57 Joanne Swecker
    Thoughts on thought Dear Ali...Where are thoughts located? When we come from an expanded and open perspective we can direct our experience to what is actually here right now, instead of our attention being scattered in thinking. We can experience a clear observation, in this clarity we are able to allow thoughts to come and go, we reccognize that though is an appearance in and of itself. Thought thinks about appearance, about this and that. But in this openess we come to allow this appearance, coming and going. What is aware of thought is never absent and thought has no intelligence of it's own. I am continually and eagerly challenged to observe my thoughts by your thinking.

    In relation to the WPD (wonderment-passion-drive) Factor cc@Ali Anani, @🐝 Fatima Williams): Fabio Marzocca writes: "Martin Heidegger stated that to understand the world, to recover our authenticity, we must return to those who thought about the world before Socrates; that is, to the origins of our amazement for the wonders of being."
    In relation to the Defining Creativity Hive, Fabio Marzocca writes: "Creativity really flows when we are linked to our deepest roots, the most deeply rooted knowledge structures, representing the most powerful tools to be able to "trigger" the process of developing a fruitful thought. A "creative" thought always arises from the transformation of a substrate of basic knowledge that (sometimes unknowingly) takes part in the process, and then becomes itself a base for the next one in a continuous transformation."

    Thank you so much for tagging me on this buzz. @Ali Anani Creativity flows from our deepest roots.. I think I should agree on this, as some of our thoughts come from the sub-conscious mind and we would have never thought that we were capable of thinking something like that before that thought had been woken up. Much of what we think has its base from our deepest roots similar to that of a seed, that gives birth to a fruitful plant which later spread its branches and then provides delicious fruits

    You shall never cease to bewilder me with your great thoughts and in connecting the dots of various experiences @Sara Jacobovici. This is a deep buzz and as deep the bottomless deep well of the past. Depth and creativity- depth of the past, depth of the roots of experiences, and the depth of ideas that all lead to deep creativity. The question is as we dig deeper, the challenges change and new layers of thinking become a necessity. Deep down the ocean we have challenges as animals and plants do, which differ greatly from challenges on the surface. I believe you bring a hugely relevant idea Sara in that creativity and depth are interconnected.
    So many worthy issues this buzz brings to the surface. Thank you Sara for sending me deep in the bottomless well of creativity.

    What a great read this morning @David Chislett. We live in a symbiotic world. Each action is felt by many as we walk on our journey. Even the caveman experience, as simple as the needs were, they were buffeted by each other. Somewhere along the way our communications have awakened a dark side of the human experience. My on opinion is that we have left some core values behind in the name of success. Existence is such a blessing and we tend to waste it on some very meaningless dialogue that only serves to heighten our lower functioning brain.

    I have always thought that knowledge takes away the darkness of fear. I am amazed that with 2+trillion of student loan debt that we would be motivated by a media that thrives on triggering our lower brain function. I watch citizens who become destructive over events, religious values stretched to include mass murder and people who would grab all that they could at the expense of others, in shear frustration. These along with other actions only serve to broaden the self destructive behavior we are experiencing.

    The larger question that looms, how can we reverse this process of madness? My thought, one person/family at a time. Thanks for sharing your journey this morning.

    I dig the concepts @Milos Djkic. I am curious if you have studied digital to analog conversions?

    I think of the binary expression of digital as the fractal beginning with the use of oct and hex to expand it into the analog. Behind the fractal design is where the chaos factor is. It's behind the fractal so to speak. I feel it is that chaos factor that is in the binary that on occasion switches it up at random to change the design that eludes us.

    Who or what is making the random decision that changes the fractal design?

    I tend to lean toward gyre theory which says simply stated that at the heart of the smallest subatomic particle is a singularity that works on a vortex. My theory that I can not prove or disprove s that there is a consciousness within the singularity.

    It's the only thing that explains the chaos factor with anything that makes sense. for me.
