Landfill Harmonic (teaser)

                                                                                                                                                           
Today, I offer this.
Seems this is the season of falling upon amazing people doing amazing things.
I am grateful to those that share with me, so I may share with others.  Passing along the goodness!


~side note: If you have had notifications from blogger about running out of space for photos...read this great post, over at Mulitcolored Pieces,on how to deal with that!!

saw the video on facebook...so inspiring. i read Nadia's post about blogger but it didn't fit in with my experience. i guess it depends on how load your pics onto picasa. i don't have all my pics in albums as she explained. i do load my pics onto picasa as .jpgs so that may be why i've never had a problem. not really sure. there are so many variables. glad it worked for you. i've missed your posts.

Deanna~ Amazing video, eh?!! Nadia's post will prove to be a lifesaver for me when I get through the process. I've 8 pictures out of hundreds!!! lol
Thank you for the kind comment. It is nice to know you've enjoyed my past posts. I'd like to get back to posting more regularly soon. I've been a bit overwhelmed lately, so maybe more organization will help!

wow, these people are inspiring

I too got a message re space and am now paying a small monthly fee, the way I see it: nothing's free, it's a service I want and I'm willing to pay for it; what does irritate me is spam, I never asked for that!! and will probably have to enable comment-moderation if it gets too bad.

Nancy said...

Saskia~ Yes, I see your point about the cost of service. I will never complain about a free service of any kind (goes way back to my son's baseball coaches who gave their time, even if they yelled a lot. We practiced getting along with different types of people!!) However, I chose blogger because of the 'no cost' element, which made the world of blogging available to me. And I love being here, so want to make it work! I have had more spam without the comment moderation turned on, but it is not too bad to deal with.

As far as the video...a far cry from the shoebox & rubber band guitars I made as a kid!!!

Oh, how wonderful! This is such an inspiring and remarkable example of music changing lives. What creative artisans to have crafted instruments from trash!

Mo Crow said...

that we as humans all over the world make so much trash is the scary thing... the North West Gyre... but this is heartening... the barriadas near Lima where the people who don't exist in the census live is a similar place, a friend from South Africa said there is no trash because everything gets used...

Nancy said...

Jenclair~ I agree!

Karen Wallace said...

Amazing video about creative people.

Nancy said...

Mo~ (ah there is your comment!! I couldn't find it, but it did post!) Anyway, I agree scary & heartening :) When it first started playing, I just thought oh my look at those MOUNDS of trash!

Karen~ Yes! So creative :) Thank you for stopping by, it's nice to see you here!

Peggy said...

Hi Nancy, this is great. And thanks, also, for the link to Nadia's post. I've bookmarked it, just in case!

Nancy said...

Peggy~ Isn't it though?! I worked on some of my photos yesterday. It will be a long process. But a good one for when I want to feel as if I've accomplished something, but can't get involved in anything too creative or that uses too much brain power! lol

oh my. treasure everywhere.

For me it is incredible to see all these people working on this landfill and even more amazing to see what they do with it. This contrast of waste and beauty! I imagine kids who would have such a lot of things on christmas and perhaps are bored some hours later.

Nancy said...

Cindy~ Nice, huh?!

Doris~ Such a good point. It's so important to appreciate, feel gratitude isn't it?
