Aw so cute ❥

Hi, I wrote this poem for all you music kids

You Need to Remember

That first time you saw one
on your bed
in pieces
when it was still a puzzle.

That first split reed
the one your brother bit
nearly in half
when he wanted to try it first.

That first forced squawk
after your little face had already
turned red, chasing purple
when you learned about resistance.

That first full piece you ever learned,
“Shoo Fly”, only two lines
that you played for Dad in the garage
when you were so proud.

That first time you played high
and it wasn’t even that high
but you anchored yourself there
when barely a C wavered with your focus.

That those firsts were made of wonder
but now sometimes you hate yourself for
not getting those two notes even in tone or
when you lost your fingers somewhere…

But what would little you say?
the you experiencing all those firsts
if she could hear it now
with all those imperfections
Don’t you think she’d be so tickled?

you deserve to find someone who makes you feel like that moment when an artist first walks on stage at a concert 

Man in T-Rex Costume Takes to Coney Island Boardwalk

With the sun shining and the winter weather dissipating, it seemed like the perfect day for a walk through Coney Island.

Elliot Reed and his filmmaker brother Mike wanted to have a little fun given the beautiful weather. Elliot dressed up in his T-Rex costume and headed to the boardwalk for a little dance. He strutted his stuff in front of many on-lookers who seemed amused by his moves. Credit: Elliot Reed via Storyful

Modern Gods:

~Hades~

The eldest of the six children of Cronus and Rhea, Hades drew the smallest reed out of his brothers leaving him the reigning Lord of the Underworld. Hades due to western concept of the devil is viewed as vindictive, spiteful, and evil. When as a matter of fact he was very just, and even had the best interest of the dead in his mind. His roman name is Pluto and in his roman form he took on the role of god of wealth as well as Lord of the dead. It is also to be noted he is not the god of death only the ruler of the Underworld where the dead reside.
