Featuring Mihran Kalaydjian

Featuring Mihran Kalaydjian

Nicholas C. Rossis

From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's booksToday I’m sharing with you an unusual interview. For the first time, I’m not featuring an author, but a musician. You may have seen Mihran Kalaydjian hanging about and leaving comments. I listened to his music and was fascinated by it. So, I decided to find out about this musician who has such a passion for reading!

Hi Mihran, it’s good to have you here. Your music style combines east and west. Would you like to tell us more about you and your music? What inspires you?

This is also a difficult question, as whatever I might think of it may not have any relation to what someone hears. 

Playing the piano has always been one of my greatest passions. During my childhood, while being influenced by other masters of music, pianists and composers, I started teaching myself to play, developing my own style over a span of 25…

Sky Sent ~ Conscious Realization to Forge Ahead

Sky Sent ~ Conscious Realization to Forge Ahead

Tania Marie's Blog

eckhart tolle

In the stillness of your presence, you can feel your own formless and timeless reality as the unmanifested life that animates your physical form. You can then feel the same life deep within every other human and every other creature. You look beyond the veil of form and separation. This is the realization of oneness. This is love. ~Eckhart Tolle

This quote and what is transpiring collectively, reminded me of this song. I love the visual journey of the video accompanied by the pure and enchanting voice weaving a story that feels to activate a remembrance.

For those of you who like words, here are the lyrics to “Sky Sent” by Anael and Bradfield:

Et miratur omnis terra
Benedictus qui venit
De celeste armonia

i. Destiny

How to begin such a disclosure?
So many years and over our heads
Led to assume there was no reason
Left in the dark…

Monochrome Monday: El Castillo

Monochrome Monday: El Castillo

indahs: dive, travel & photography

El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan is the center of archaeological site of Chichén Itzá, one of the largest Maya cities.  Chichén Itzá is located in the eastern part of Yucatán state in Mexico. This impressive temple has height of 24 meters and 6 meters height of the temple on the top. It has 365 stairs to reach the top. We were not allowed to climb the stairs in which I’d rather glad not to do so – too many stairs!

Some studies said that the temple was built relates to the Mayan calendar. The 365 stairs represented of each day of the calendar (solar calender). More explanation of Mayan calendar and El Castillo as can be read further in this link.

Dr. Smith’s eyes gleamed with excitement.

“During the ceremony, the elder presents a flower. This flower is passed around, and the leaders of each family sniff it and pass it gently over their wives’ faces. It’s almost as if these people worship the flower.”

“What flower is it?” Dr. Smith’s pulse raced as he thought of the possibilities.

“I don’t quite know. I’ve seen drawings of it done by the tribe’s artists. It’s unlike any blossom I’ve ever seen before…” Caleb’s words drifted, and he seemed in a daze.

“Well, what does it look like?” Dr. Smith talked fast and…

Կիսվելը` լավագույն կոմունիկացիան է / Giving is the best communication

Առլեն Շահվերդյան

Բջջային կապի՝ թայլանդական ընկերություններից մեկը նկարահանել է ընդամենը 3 րոպեանոց մի տեսահոլովակ, որը պարզապես ցնցել է ամբողջ համացանցը: Տեսահոլովակը արդեն դիտվել է ավելի քան 10 միլիոն անգամ: Տեսահոլովակի սկզբում փոքրիկ տղան դեղորայք է գողանում դեղատնից: Դրանից հետո ցուցադրվում են արդեն 30 տարի հետո տեղի ունեցած դեպքերը: Բջջային օպերատորի կարգախոսն է. «Կիսվելը (տալը)` լավագույն կոմունիկացիան է»:
Ամեն անգամ երբ դիտում եմ այս հոգեցունց տեսահոլովակը, արցունքներս հազիվ եմ զսպում: Դիտելիս անպայման կարդացեք հոլովակի տիտրերը:
Կիսվեք այս գրառմամբ ձեր ընկերների հետ սոցիալական ցանցերում:

The creme of surf coaching

The creme of surf coaching

surf and fitness journey

Confidence has always been my downfall, and by confidence I mean that I had none. The same has gone for my surfing. I’d get a little confident, try unbroken waves, wipe out and then lose my confidence again. It’s been a bitter cycle for months and months.

Yesterday I had a surf lesson with Mal Gregson. I expected him to tell me that my surf was suffering because my pop-up was too slow, my paddling was weak and my balance was shot. I expected to be working on mostly these three things, away from the fun part of the waves. The first thing Mal did was reassure me that I had nothing to be nervous about. He’d just got home from travelling in Indo and he understands that sometimes you can look at a wave and admit you have your limits, and it doesn’t have to be twelve foot…

Monochrome Monday: Muay Thai

indahs: dive, travel & photography

Recent chats over Thailand with travel bloggers, Packingmysuitcase and Pearlspotting reminded me of our visit to Muay Thai Fight Competition in Phuket (Thailand). Blame it on my photography burnout during our visit in Thailand back then – I was totally forgot that I took pictures of the Muay Thai Fights!

It was Dutchie idea to watched Muay Thai Fights and our hotel in Phuket recommended us a competition at Bangla Boxing Stadium (Patong, Phuket). Personally I do not like any type of fighting competitions. Punching or kicking your rival does not look like a sport to me. I do believe the process of being a fighter itself is the sport. However Muay Thai is rather special. It started with Wai Kru Ram Muay performance by the fighters. It consisted of two performances, the first is to respect people who close to the fighters like the coaches, family, friends and supporters; and…
