My dad and uncle used to sit for hours playing classical guitar when I was a kid. It is one of the (few) good memories of my hard-nosed ex-military uncle! Lol. But I always loved the sound of a classical 12 string guitar.

I'm sorry I'm so late replying. I had to get the house in order. I have a plumber coming out very early in the morning to fix my leaking kitchen faucet. Then I had a phone call.

You are from a musical family! Me too, but I didn't inherit any of the talent. I truly can't carry a tune. Do you play?

Who wrote the verses above? Profound and haunting.

I was lucky to have many musicians in the family. I play, but never dedicated the necessary time to become accomplished. It's fun to goof off with it though.

Those lyrics are from a Metallica song called One. Yes.....heavy metal, but like I said with an open mind all music can be enlightening.

Married over 5 years, just had a kid, & I work in law enforcement. From what you said, I kind of see what kind of comfort you get from religion.
About the music, I really enjoy Gustav Holst - The Planets

I will listen to these youtube videos tonight. I enjoy all kinds of music except rap. Oooh, I can't say anything good about it! I hope you aren't fond of it so I didn't just put my foot in my mouth. LOL I don't care for jazz either.

I want to read an article that was referenced earlier today, I've forgotten who posted it, but it looks interesting, and I want to catch up on some of the other threads. We've got involved in several threads, haven't we....we're kind of jumping around from post to post lately! LOL

I am a night owl but I must shut down a little earlier tonight so I can be up and dressed before the plumber arrives in the morning.

Good night...I'll respond to some of your posts tomorrow.

WOW!! How very beautiful, video and audio! Yes, indeed, it made me think of God. Space is so very....beautiful...I can't think of another word more appropriate. The stars, planets, galaxies, everything so perfect. I just don't see how it all could have come about by random chance.
