About Me

My photo
Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

Sound and Image, Winning Nr. 22 Jersey

The sound of silence......
for me it goes schwaaa, swiiiish and  phee.
And then there's slurp, swoosh
and especially that pitter patter - yes, that kind of cardiac workout  ;-). 
Can one sing it? Play it?

How would you do it? 
Like this.................................

Or like that?

Or this?

maybe this is more to your liking:

    The Look of Silence.......

how do you depict it?
                                                                                      The Form of Silence ...
                                                                how do you record it?

  The Birth of Silence....
                                                                       Is this how?

"Silence is golden"
The origin of this often used proverb is lost in time. Some versions may even go back to Ancient Egypt.
The first time it was used in English was by poet Thomas Carlyle, translating it from the German in Sartor Resartus, 1831.

A fuller version is 
'Speech is silver; Silence is golden',
now seldom used.

 "Speech is of Time, Silence is of Eternity".

Congratulations on your Jed Ortmeyer Game Jersey!

Ortmeyer, previous winner of the NHL Steven McDonald Extra Effort Award, epitomized the spirit and character of the Aeros 2010-11 Team. Most players would probably admit that he was the "leader" of the Team, although others wore the "C".

Ortmeyer's NHL record (over 300 games) is remarkable, when viewed against the backdrop of career-threatening injuries, with the New York Rangers, Nashville Predators, and the San Jose Sharks.

Most Aeros fans did not know, until late season, that he had been previously diagnosed (2006) with a pulmonary embolism and suffered from infequent blood clots in his legs, mandating the need to inject himself with a "blood thinner" before each Game. Ortmeyer, literally, risked his life to play each Aero Game (and he NEVER missed a game).

Aeros fans will always remember Ortmeyer for his character, courage and determination and how he made every other member of the Team, BETTER by his example on and off-ice.

Go Aeros!!!
