HELLO THERE !
As you can see, I’ve written two articles today (Oh, inspiration…) and my only will is to continue again, so I’m thinking about all the articles I want to write.
First, I always find a title for what I want to write BEFORE actually starting writing it, which makes that I have a lot of article possibilities, but not always the time to write them (so, yes, I have a list full of titles in my notes app on my phone…)
The next articles will come in a few days I hope, I’ve got a lot to make you discover about.
Stay tuned, get updated, and be curious !
Today’s prompt : Border
I’m very happy today to share today’s prompt, something I haven’t done for a very long time and it’s a part of why I’m so happy do retry this writing exercise.
We’re in a a world where borders have always been a problem. Since the ancient times, kingdoms have always had the will to push their borders accross another country and to invade them.
Religion was helping during Middle Age, as religions and civil wars spread across the Old Continent.
Asia wasn’t spared either during all the conflicts between China and Japan.
The two World Wars are also an example of this, Belgium borders didn’t count anymore for the german army who used that country to go to France. Hitler, with the Anschluss, invaded Poland.
And the same things repeat again and again, to the world we know today, and with the migrants crisis all over the world.
Everyone knows, “music is life” for the majority of the Earth’s inhabitants.
Created from the very beginning, music has always taken a major place in a civilization’s culture. Homo Sapiens, Homo Neanderthalensis and the people from those early civilization are the ones who started playing music, often with bone-caved flutes, but mankind have never cesed to try different rythms and sounds, making discoveries about how the sound is created, and so how the instruments must be built.
Apart from birds, whales and a few other which we know, according to science, use a kind of primitive music to communicate, humans is the only “developed” species that have made music. The special features for which we continue to make music over the centuries, is that it’s made only to be a form of art, and so to be “esthetic” even if some artists consider they don’t make music for it to be esthetic).
Then, we created lyrics, used our own voices to be a new instrument, each voice being very unique, and guiding words through melody.
It amazes me how humans have this possibility, this creativity wide enough to always be able to find new rythms, new lyrics, new themes, new topics to sing about.
