Draft

Just a short tale
By John Ny

A long time ago, one of my grandmothers, tried to make sure that joining the Brazilian military service would be an unnecessary feat in my case, as she could probably use her influence over that matter. A quite clear sign of care and preoccupation over a possible and bad outcome, in my opinion. However, after a long period of reflection over what my choice would be, I really decided on enlisting against her wishes, which, unexpectedly, resulted in an unlikely outcome as she proved to be one of my greatest supporters at the time. Well, I really miss my grandmother and not for the fact that she was white in spite of the fact that I am black. Nevertheless, that is not the real point here.

Strings

Strings,
Phrasing and its difficulty
Is not it all about it?
Now it´s clearer to see
Not for lack of a better description
Flats, sharp notes and many different keys
Outsides, not oddness, a colorful sonority
Something about the mastering of some pure technique
Strings vibration, their gauge and sound characteristics
Bending moves, sliding tricks
Unusual bars and their specific number of beats
Neither brain failure nor psychological issues
Useful details about what the word overcome means
Neither craziness nor lack of any spirituality
Scale switch from one key to another
Amazing chords, triads, major and minor scales
Greek modes, not madness as I first suspected
Staccato octaves, sixteen triplets
Vibrato... .... ....
And now I finally understand it
Something beyond and also about creativity
It is time I learnt about music

The Most Comfortable Of All Places

The most comfortable of all places? Any comfortable site in which a good position is granted to the skilled, according to his or her competences, the reading of a good article is allowed, including time for some composition, essay and production of a relevant issue. A place where the listening of good songs, the watching of a great deal of good movies and what else the world has to offer are not denied. A place in which the outcome of such grant would be none other than the generation of relevant stuff.

Something to ponder

Something to ponder. by John Ny


It´s true. Some say that there is a great difference between knowledge and wisdom. Nevertheless, there may be a close relation between wisdom and intelligence and that´s the reason why wise human beings may be both cause and effect of what could have been obtained and put into practice on a daily basis, repetitively as usual procedure through both formal and informal or also direct and indirect kinds of interaction among peers for centuries. That is why positive kinds of interaction are very important and may be preferred by those with a care in the world. These kinds of interactions are in fact the only ones resulting in the most impressive and desired achievements of humankind, regarding many existing activities and projects ever developed by human beings from many existing fields of expertise institutionalized by humankind. Ranging from engineering, to sports, to entertainment, to medicine, to art, to economics, to science, to technological advances, s…
