Guest Post: The Apprehension Engine

Thanks to Donna at MyOBT for this guest post. I usually avoid horror movies, but I am so intrigued by this instrument, I may just go see The Witch. Or maybe I’ll just watch these videos again.

Tuesday Photo Challenge–Music

When I saw this week’s theme for the Tuesday Photo Challenge, I thought, “What a great theme! If only I could think of a shot to take.”

You see, I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in music education. I taught elementary general music for twelve and a half years in two different centuries and two different states.

I sighed and glanced around my very messy study. This is what I saw:

A mountain dulcimer made in the seventies by a friend’s brother; a “tick-tock” woodblock; a cabasa, and a cricket scraper.

Then I went to the living room, where my piano resides.

A flower arrangement came to me in this bowl many years ago. I now use it to serve cranberry sauce or Pfeffernüße during the holidays.
