    Other than "Mighty Mouse," I had never really seen Andy Kaufman. That was a great imitation.

    Watched "Man on the Moon".Jim Carrey portrays eccentric performance artist Andy Kaufman.Fascinating story- was not aware of how highly rated Kaufman was as an entertainer/ avant garde comedian although I had seen his cameos in the Taxi sitcom early 80s.REM immortalized his story in the song also called Man on the Moon.

    #14 Actually, now that you mention it, now I remember it! I remembered there was something sorta offensive about him to women but I couldn't remember why (hey, middle-aged dumb blonde syndrome or whatever :) ) I do remember other non-wrestling appearances on SNL, in fact I remember turning the TV off and going to bed while he sat at a piano and sang a really dumb kiddie farm animal song. He was just un-funny to me no matter what he was doing. Except for Latka Gravas! Which is an even funnier character now that I live in Toronto with people who actually talk like that! :)

    #13 Pythons were classics.Getting back to Andy K, his brand of eccentric/ avant garde performance included wrestling matches with women.This seemed a deliberate attempt to rile his audience up but in fact backfired on him when he was later barred from the Sat.Nite Live show.May well be of interest you from a feminist perspective:

    #12 I found the Pythons were an acquired taste, but that might be because I grew up American. The humour is different. But once you get used to it it's hysterical! The Dead Parrot sketch and the Cheese Shop kill me to this day. I also love the Hungarian phrasebook sketch ("My Hovercraft is full of eels") but that's because I'm in language translation now.

    #11 I think he was more a performance artist who trief to get knto the psyche of his audience.Had also only been aware of Taxi up to now...just checking out his other stuff.Whats clear is that one either loves or loathes his stuff.Much like the English comic legends Monty Python whom I absolutely love..Comic pioneers were the Pythons.

    #4 thanks @Donna Wood. Seems he had a kind of "love him or hate" effect on his audience... indeed he spent a lot of effort in riling his crowd up.I was more interested in how highly rated he was in the US at the time.

    It's been a long time since I've thought of Andy Kaufman. I don't necessarily buy into conspiracy theories, more find them interesting as to why people believe them. I believe that Andy Kaufman is indeed dead. However, if it were true that he wasn't dead, I would lean more toward the idea he was institutionalized with a multiple personality disorder that he could no longer control.

    Kaufmans early death is (inevitably?) the subject of a conspiracy theory..aka the moon landings were faked; hence the song title.

    Any thoughts on the legacy of Kaufman from the North American bees?

    #8 I agree with your disagreement. When we look at spontaneity from the perspective and definition you prescribed. I am quite the visual person. Maybe acutely. I don't see one playground but many. You aptly described the various playgrounds we can find ourselves and others engaged. Judgement, apathetic criticism and the others. For me i cant be on one playground and act as i am on another. The judgement playground keeps me from the playground where spontaneity can happen.

    If i say yes to something, what am i saying no too? Was a profound question put to me by a mentor who wanted me to understand that in the presence of yes/no, judgement or the other features you pointed out what is being obscured or being said no too?

    It is from this perspective that i look at the critical features that zap spontaneity and say that if judgement exists then spontaneity will be difficult to achieve. Everything that is seen or discussed will have to satisfy the judgment criteria first.

    I also want to say that i am defining spontaneity with a very fine scope of seeking wisdom or answers to current questions. Not frolicking and being spontaneous for detachment purposes. So again i take great liberties with definitions, and often assume everyone got a copy of my dictionary.

    Please disagree, i enjoy the discussion as we either merge our perspectives or merely share a different one. Exploration of perspectives is the true border of discovery.

This post has illuminated the idea of "Spontaneity"..with such brilliance, that I now understand the act of Spontaneity as a rare gift, one of great value and essence in our overall existence ! Valuable insights and a writing for keeps to be referred to even in future ! Thanks !

    @Sara Jacobovici, I am delighted that you took the time and effort to expand on spontaneity. It's posts like this that bring even a broader understanding of a thought-provoking subject, while it is fresh in our minds.

    I agree the definition of spontaneity is open-ended, presenting food-for-thought thus the reason for a most interesting chain of comments.

    Thank you for bringing this post to my attention and I am on my way to Part Two.

    #6 I always look forward to a @Harvey Lloyd comment. I find your comments unique and thought provoking Let me just say, I am not into the compartmentalization of learning and definitions of words. Learning is a lifetime process and we learn as long as we have an open mind and a passion to learn. The rules of grammar, so to speak, can be helpful at times, as tools, not as a substitute for thinking. I love how you move nouns into verbs. This inspires me to look at words through movement. I once wrote about how the verb "to allow", in fact means not doing anything. So here is a verb that moves towards stillness. Now, to the topic at hand, as @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee reminds me, disagreement is natural and adds to the discussion. So Harvey, I have to respectfully disagree with your description of spontaneity as providing us a "playground of otherwise off limit areas of our brain when the rules are in play." I think the cessation of destructive criticism, suspension of judgment, censorship, and even fear, are some factors that contribute to our having the "freedom" to be in the space of that playground, but that playground does not exist because of spontaneity. That playground comes from our innate ability to explore and be curious, and our sense of safety that we developed over time and with experience, to identify the boundaries in which that exploration can take place. Thank you for contributing to "extending and growing" my thinking.

    Very interesting points concerning how we take liberties in expressing and expanding a definition into a concept. I would ask for forgiveness as i did not attend any higher education so i do take great liberties in defining words.

    The fractal nature of our being tends to define a ridged existence along certain paths that give us a reflection. Ergo @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA question. The one of control. Spontaneity provides us a play ground of otherwise off limit areas of our brain when the rules are in play.

    My definition of Spontaneity does step outside the box of Webster too describe the outcome and journey. What spontaneity can lead too, if you will. One of my faults is carrying nouns into the realm of action. I get called on it from my dictionary happy educator friends. By doing so though i am not tied to the definition myself, but can grow out from it. This is confusing when i take a noun and drive it down the road to a conclusion that presents the word as a verb.

    In taking a crack at Chris's question i would submit yes that spontaneity is a state of mind, represented in action to others, and a choice. I also believe that we don't find success, success finds us because of this state of mind. A play on words? Maybe? I see many people looking, who are unprepared for success and i see many who are creating an environment where success will visit. Depending on which of these views you accept will have cause and effect on your spontaneity.

    Thanks @Sara Jacobovici for extending and growing this concept of understanding our paradigm.

    19/05/2017 #5 Sara Jacobovici
    #4 If you forgive mine.#3 Your question, as always @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA, is a wise one. Everything you say is right; spontaneity has a lot to do with personality and yes, there seems to be a contradiction in the concept of having "a deliberate control over spontaneous behaviour." So first, re personality. I see this as a reinforcement to spontaneity being an ability we develop as we mature. Our initial mode of operation is very impulsive. Only when we begin to develop a sense of time, to delay gratification, to understand stops and starts, and so on, do we choose, based on our personality type, to be more or less spontaneous. The contradiction is more of a paradox; spontaneity is time bound. We either make time for spontaneity or not. Because by the time we can be spontaneous, we have more control over the "when", we are then able to be "free" within the constraints of time. Thanks for your valuable contribution to this discussion Chris.

    Thanks for this very illuminating expabsipn to the duscussion @Sara Jacobovici. I found your expert articulation of the differences between impulsive and spontaneous behavior and fully resonate with your explanation. Would you then say one has deliberate control over spontaneous behaviour..."I will act spontaneously tomorrow" for example? This would appear to be a contradiction in terms but seems logical given your explanation that spontaneity lies within rational adult conciousness.I had always assumed that spontaneous qualities were a product of personality rather than of tge exercise of ones will.

    Thanks for sharing this important reminder @Chris 🐝 Guest Cert.Prof.Acc.SA I share your sentiments totally. When I first started practice and the kids were young, one of my older colleagues warned me that I would become a stranger to the family because of the demanding hours of work. That served as a cue whereby I resolved to grow up with the family. I made a point of getting home for supper on most nights (and going back to work until 11) and also getting to watch many of their sports fixtures. It was one of the most important resolutions I ever made!

    You are always telling me to hop on a plane. Can my husband and I retire early and just be jet setters lol? Of course you know I'm just kidding about you telling 'me' to hop on a plane. Interesting facts about Marrakech! It does sound like a place to visit, for sure. I have a friend who's from Morocco. He lives in the States and has since the 80's. He makes many trips back to see his family. I've only seen photo's of the beach he and his family enjoy (it appears beautiful). I have seen a few photos of historical sites, but I couldn't name them. And, the weddings... wow- they get dressed to the nines! I would eat snail soup! This sounded enticing- eucalyptus scrub; a rose petal mud mask, a foot massage and final rub down with enriching Argan oil.

    Thank you, Paul, for this enlightening and educational buzz on the history, culture and "magic" of Marrakech. I really enjoyed reading this and learning more about such a spectacular city with over 1,000 years of history since it's founding -- not to mention a current population of more than one million people. Moreover, the photos are all top notch and compliment your prolific prose. Thanks again and keep buzzing, my friend.

    #6 This is what I like about David Gray's songwriting, his lyrics invite us to our own experiences and this is not about interpreting his music for others but internalizing it through our unique experiences and sense-making. That also shows me why we have an affinity, which is also what shows up in your bee appreciation poems - the affinities are that much more personal. and that soak the human condition.

    While Babylon was his greatest hit, I dig "Sail Away" the most https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SMF7Uq-mHZA 2nd Favourite track is Transformation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8XP9b-O_0U and then it is Babylon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI_SBAkdKzc

    He has a distinct Brit voice where you can hear his Northern English voice. and that combines to create his own style. Ed Sheeran gave him due credit by covering This Year's Love https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06fvCuR-uWY and that is the difference,

    Sheeran has a greater footprint and yet when you hear his cover, he pays homage to Gray's singing style and not just doing a cover in a different way. The song should not be better because Sheeran sings it, it should be better because David Gray is a great singer/songwriter.

    Reading this article made me travel the country, and leave aside those news that we do not like. Unfortunately, the wonders of South Africa and the African continent should be more exalted by sometimes covering the terrible news of persecution and hunger, not that this is not important, but denigrates and causes wonders to be hidden. What is beautiful must always be shared!

    It is amazing what can be crafted when art and nature combine. It reminds me of our trip to Windsor where it is the only place I have visited with a green maze crafted from hedges. This park is stunning. I had to decide whether this was green learning - a place where family an come, or yellow learning - a place of art and history and in the end that is why I placed this in my yellow learning hive.

    "Precious"

    Precious and fragile things
    Need special handling
    My God what have we done to you
    We always tried to share
    The tenderest of care
    Now look what we have put you through

    Things get damaged
    Things get broken
    I thought we'd manage
    But words left unspoken
    Left us so brittle
    There was so little left to give

    Angels with silver wings
    Shouldn't know suffering
    I wish I could take the pain for you
    If God has a master plan
    That only He understands
    I hope it's your eyes He's seeing through

    Things get damaged
    Things get broken
    I thought we'd manage
    But words left unspoken
    Left us so brittle
    There was so little left to give

    I pray you learn to trust
    Have faith in both of us
    And keep room in your hearts for two

    Things get damaged
    Things get broken
    I thought we'd manage
    But words left unspoken
    Left us so brittle
    There was so little left to give

    Sade is about 2 years older than me and the first time I came across her music was in my mid-20's and being a far different person back then I could not stand her music. Where I am now in my development meaning is what is important and I have come to realize the wealth of her talent and the quality of her lyrics. In the way I have shifted my view of her music is equal to the actual development that has taken place - and that has all to do with adopting a learning mindset which is representative of the last two decades, but not anywhere near as much in my first three decades of life.

    Siegfried Woldhek came off the stage with a convinced disposition that he has found the real face or generational faces of Leonardo Da Vinci https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vXsynj1QkQ View more
    Siegfried Woldhek came off the stage with a convinced disposition that he has found the real face or generational faces of Leonardo Da Vinci https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7vXsynj1QkQ It is highly compelling but does not put away the possibility that Woldhek is too certain and certainty requires confirmation. It is the same in science.

    Just because one scientist has developed a way of doing that works, it is not until the experiment is repeated by another scientist that we can add credence to the assertion that the real face of Leonardo has been found.

    History does get shaped over time and then re-shaped as well. This encourages me to view the Da Vinci History TV documentary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYBO0YyJ6RU [Run time 90 Minutes] Whether it is documentary or films, directors are open to interpretation and place their view on the face of Da Vinci and what his life was actually about.

    Christian Galvez is an interesting mind, he is among those who elevate my thinking and in that regard I welcome such people. Close

I will have something coming up soon in the same vein as Bourdain's writing, will let you know when I post it. Here's a very short read that will give you an insight as to my perspective of Anthony Bourdain;

    #5 @ @Gert 🐝 Scholtz

    The great thing Gert is that exposure to Spanish poets helps with your personal aim of beginning to learn the Spanish language. What I am learning about both Spanish and Latin American poets is the relationship with the political environment.

    These were not people like William Wordsworth who examined daffodils and was enthused by yellow flowers, Spanish poets are more like Wilfred Owen whose poetry was magnified because he wrote it in the trenches during battle and in Owen's case he never made it out of the First World War, which is yet another tragedy. There is something far more powerful about recognizing the generational poets from Spain, it is their back-stories that are just as compelling as the art they are recognized for. So it is the background of Miguel https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems-and-poets/poets/detail/miguel-hernandez

    Two things stand out from this background. First Miguel is the quintessential working class hero and secondly to rise from what was a menial and mundane farming existence, he had to overcome his own father who severely discouraged his son from pursuing poetry. Miguel Hernandez fought hard to achieve and so his chief constraints were not all political.

    I am also conscious that my Western education in both England and Canada never featured Spanish poets and so unless one attended a top notch school, we are faced with the promotion of Western figures and so by entertaining the life of Miguel Hernandez, I am also getting past the constraints of this Western Education - and here I am inspired by Hernadez story, while of course I weep at the tragedy of his illness and incarceration, and most of all a lifetime full of challenge and challenges.

    Me ha puesto la piel de gallina recordar la historia de Miguel Hernández. Con tanto ordenador y teléfonos móviles, dejamos de lado muchas veces las maravillas de la poesía y la literatura. El pueblo que olvida su historia, está condenado a repetirla, esperemos que en España tengamos buena memoria para que no haya más poetas condenados a morir en una cárcel sin sentido. Un abrazo a todas las abejas y mi más sincero homenaje a Miguel.

    The first thing I needed to acquaint myself was what the "generations" are and so I spent time to get familiar with 27, 36 and also 50 and it is quite a complex array of poets and artists. I also took a look at the Generation of 98 in light of your original introduction to Antonio Machado

    Generation of 98
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_of_%2798

    Generation of 27
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_of_%2727

    Generation of 36
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_of_%2736

    Generation of 50
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generation_of_%2750

    Apart from Hernandez's story which you said you would write, so thank you, I also got to discover the City of Jaen, which many travel sites described as the hidden treasure of Andalucia's hidden treasure http://luxurycolumnist.com/jaen-spain/

    I like what he did to "Mad World". Not a fan of Adam Lambert, especially when he fronted Queen, but he did an incredible Mad World. I think we grew up with the same songs. I was 15 when I heard Seasons and the story behind it. Picked up a guitar wanting to learn how to play it. Toya Wilcox was big at the time.

    The amusing thing here for me is that I heard that song a few years under 50 years ago and I only get to find out about Marrakesh in this buzz !

    For me music is milestones more than beats - for this is where it captures our individuality and so what we happen to like is different to what it happens to mean. A great example is the song that stamped my psyche after 9/11 - which was Gary Jules https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3N1MlvVc4

    When Pink Floyd sang Another Brick in the Wall that is a memory ticker that coincides with Alice Cooper "Schools Out Forever" - you can guess I was at a school which all of us did not want to be at. I can enjoy masses amount of commercial pap because I keep liking separate from meaning. For sure when we talk about song composition and beat this fits in the middle space between like and meaning - but music for me is what flows through my imagination, so much so it is individuality and music becomes DNA.

    Perhaps the song I don't like to hear but which carries the most haunting meaning for me is Terry Jacks "Seasons in the Sun"

    #14 CSNY's most poignant track was Four Dead in Ohio , an anthem to the Kent State shootings when the Ohio National Guard killed four students protesting the Vietnam War and the incursion into Cambodia

    Four Dead in Ohio - Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfOx2AQOW1A

    These shootings led to mass Student strikes, and it was H.R. Haldeman, Nixon's Chief of Staff involved in Watergate who marked the Kent State shootings as the moment that created the deep scrutiny on Nixon's administration, that eventually uncovered Watergate and led to the impeachment of President Richard Nixon.

    The Marrekech Express is Crosby, Still, Nash's most joyful song, Four Dead in Ohio their most significant. Close

    Having been nearly 50 years since Crosby Stills and Nash recorded the song "Marakech Express" it is about time I actually saw something of the real Marrakech and now I have, it was a great way to catch a glimpse of it in this sublime buzz. I don't remember a buzz of yours before which broke into a novelist dialogue but the effect of the 2nd section added some personal "being there" and it worked. Great photographs as always and I concur with @Paul Walters about the debonaire bit.
