Mihran Kalaydjian is a musical painter of spellbinding lyrics and grand compositions. He is also known by the nickname, “Mino” who is truly a musical storyteller that connects to his audience by the delightful keyboard melodies and heartwarming songs.

Born in Jerusalem, Israel to Armenian parents and raised in the United States, this provided Mino with an outlet to reflect both cultures and rhythmic sounds that emulates the diverse talents he posses.

Mino has been playing the piano since the tender age of seven and at the age of fourteen he was greatly influenced by a musical teacher, Colin Stone, who Mino calls brilliant and inspirational to his long standing musical career.

Whether playing solo or with his band Element, Mino delights his audience with charismatic music and mesmerizing words.

I am enthralled at the opportunity to introduce you to Mihran Kalaydjian and I want to personally thank…

I didn’t know happiness
until I had you two,
to have something so perfect
so small, so delicate and true.

The pleasure you bring into my life
I cannot express enough
The cuddles, kisses, the looks you give,
are filled with utmost love.

Your personalities are so different
yet at times you are the same,
your innocence and laughter
enforces that my aim..
is to give your lives full of meaning
to live for every day,
and to know i’m so proud of both of you
in each and every way.

I know you both resent me,
for the life we left behind,
but mum was very unhappy,
and herself she had to find.

We’ve had our trials and tribulations
our problems that some our way,
but remember mum is here for you
every second, come what may.

They say love is unconditional
between children and their mother
experiencing parenthood is such a gift,
this love is like no other

This poem is for my children
whom I love with all my soul,
my existence belongs to you two,
and through you, my life is whole.

Save The Best For Last


“Save The Best For Last”

Sometimes the snow comes down in June
Sometimes the sun goes round the moon
I see the passion in your eyes
Sometimes it’s all a big surprise

‘Cause there was a time when all I did was wish
You’d tell me this was love
It’s not the way I hoped or how I planned
But somehow it’s enough

And now we’re standing face-to-face
Isn’t this world a crazy place?
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

All of the nights you came to me
When some silly girl had set you free
You wondered how you’d make it through
I wondered what was wrong with you

‘Cause how could you give your love to someone else
And share your dreams with me
Sometimes the very thing you’re looking for
Is the one thing you can’t see

But now we’re standing face-to-face
Isn’t this world a crazy place?
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

la da da da – da da.-

Sometimes the very thing you’re looking for
Is the one thing you can’t see

Sometimes the snow comes down in June
Sometimes the sun goes round the moon
Just when I thought our chance had passed
You go and save the best for last

You went and saved the best for last

Waiting For The Miracle To Come

Paintings – Carri Graber
Lyrics by Leonard Cohen


Baby, I’ve been waiting,
I’ve been waiting night and day.
I didn’t see the time,
I waited half my life away.
There were lots of invitations
and I know you sent me some,
but I was waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.
I know you really loved me.
but, you see, my hands were tied.
I know it must have hurt you,
it must have hurt your pride
to have to stand beneath my window
with your bugle and your drum,
and me I’m up there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Ah I don’t believe you’d like it,
You wouldn’t like it here.
There ain’t no entertainment
and the judgments are severe.
The Maestro says it’s Mozart
but it sounds like bubble gum
when you’re waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Waiting for the miracle
There’s nothing left to do.
I haven’t been this happy
since the end of World War II.

Nothing left to do
when you know that you’ve been taken.
Nothing left to do
when you’re begging for a crumb
Nothing left to do
when you’ve got to go on waiting
waiting for the miracle to come.

I dreamed about you, baby.
It was just the other night.
Most of you was naked
Ah but some of you was light.
The sands of time were falling
from your fingers and your thumb,
and you were waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come

Ah baby, let’s get married,
we’ve been alone too long.
Let’s be alone together.
Let’s see if we’re that strong.
Yeah let’s do something crazy,
something absolutely wrong
while we’re waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Nothing left to do …

When you’ve fallen on the highway
and you’re lying in the rain,
and they ask you how you’re doing
of course you’ll say you can’t complain —
If you’re squeezed for information,
that’s when you’ve got to play it dumb:
You just say you’re out there waiting
for the miracle, for the miracle to come.

Solidarity Support Challenge day 50

Solidarity Support Challenge

Success Inspirers' World

Hello friends! The moment of joy has come. We begin Round 4 of Solidarity Support Challenge.

Thanks to you all, sweet members of Bloggers’ Solidarity Support Forum, we have been able to come this far. We are growing big in numbers.

We are moving fully to two blogs and bloggers of the day to make it more exciting and to go faster. Two blogs are definitely not too many.

Following are our first two blogs and bloggers of the day.
1. Mihran Kalaydjian is an amazing blogger. He was among the very first to embrace the forum. But somehow along the line his name slipped off from our list. You will be happy meeting him if you haven’t already. We’ve apologized to him and are happy to have him co-top the list of this round with wivesrepublic.

Visit Mihran Kalaydjian and leave him some…

Day Two: The Seven Day Nature Challenge

A Day In The Life

Marilyn over at Serendipity, a wonderful photographer and blogger whom I have learned so much from, has invited me to participate in The Seven Day Nature Photo Challenge. To take part in the challenge I’m supposed to post one photo (or more)per day for seven days. The subject can be anything from the natural world. I can nominate someone each day to participate, and today I am happy to invite Lois a wonderful friend who writes a blog called on pets and prisonersto join in the challenge. 

I love taking walks in nature preserves in my area in New Jersey, and Autumn is a wonderful time to do so and take in the changing foliage. This past year the leaves changed very late, not displaying their usual array of beautiful colors. On a very warm day in early November I did find them changing as I walked along…
