N is for…
I can’t read a lick of music, although I do know the scale, do, re, mi, fa, so, la, ti, do…thanks to a little song from the Sound of Music. “When you know the notes to sing, you can sing most anything.”
Because we go to so many concerts and I am making a scrapbook with all the pictures I take, I am always on the look out for musical things I can use to embellish the pages. I came across this wall of notes in Rohnert Park, California, near Sonoma State University when we went to visit our daughter at school. I have no idea if the combination of notes has any significant meaning or is the beginning of a song.
This set of notes I found on the driveway of one of the houses near where we live. I was on a walk, trying to get some exercise since my job keeps me sitting most of the day. I was also trying to get pictures for the 365 picture project I did one year. I just happened to be looking down at the right time and saw this unusual bit on the ground. Makes me wonder why someone would do that. Were they musicians?
This is a stencil I am anxious to use.
This is a punch that I can use to make some cool borders.
I just learned that the notes have names. This one is interesting:
It is called a demisemihemidemisemiquaver/two hundred fifty-sixth note. WHAT? No wonder I don’t know what they mean!
That’s all the notes I have for this letter. How about you? Read notes? Can you tell me if there is a song starting on the picture of the notes on the wall or the sidewalk? Enlighten me!
Have a great Sunday off. I need to figure out some of the rest of the alphabet posts!
