Day #25 – I’m thankful for media

Simply put: it is through media that we get informed and entertained. So, I’m thankful. Today, I want to share a short video on how media influences society (I’m a communications and media major, so these things stand-out to me :-).

Feel free to share you comments.

Day #19 – I’m thankful for poetry

Iambs and pentameters. Melody, rhythm and rhyme. Poetry are words which dance on a page. Or, in the heart. And sometimes, they flow from the mouth and pierce others’ minds with notions…and thoughts…and lessons…ideas…and on…and on…and on.

Poetry is what I do when I am not physically dancing, singing, drawing, or playing a musical instrument. In other words, if I’m not dancing, then I’m probably, singing. If I’m not singing, then I’m probably, reading, writing, reciting, or thinking about… a poem.

You may wonder why I like poetry so much. For now, the answer to that question is simple: I don’t know why. But I can tell you that poetry is to me what music is to dance, what peanut butter is to jelly, and what ham is to burger. I love poetry, and I thank God for giving mankind the ability to create poetry.

Some of my earliest memories consist of me either making music, or dancing to music. And while I was making the music, I was dancing in my head, or patting my feet on the floor 🙂

Day #6- I’m thankful for music

I don’t think I’m alone when I say that music is __________ [you fill in the blank]. For me, it’s beautiful and it’s freedom. It gives an avenue of expression which sometimes words alone cannot convey to the soul. Like mathematics, it is a universal language which is not limited to nativity, state or region.
