    pure joy--"pure" music.

    i saw this on facebook this morning, posted by a friend. there is a page, there, called "landfill harmonic". if you have a presence there, go and visit the page.

    this group is in paraguay. they "find" resourced in the landfill they live on. and they have created something beautiful.

    go. see. listen. and be amazed.

    i am humbled, and am loving the joy that has been created in the middle of the nothing they have.

    Thanks! I just shared it with my good friend Bob who is a VP with Yamaha music division.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Sue,
    I just felt that there might be some "pay-it-forward" inspiration from your email to your friend, Bob. Please keep us updated if such a thing happens. These young people, and their champions, are such a heartwarming story!

    Thank you so much for sharing this. What an inspiration. I love music and to see how these people make music is truly amazing. I forwarded to my family including my Grandchildren.

    Thank you for yet another humbling experience. We have so much to be thankful for, and take so much for granted.

    Thanks. I would probably never have seen this and I would be very sorry to have missed it.

    That was so inspirational. Should be shown to all Gen Y's. These kids are streets ahead already. It has lifted my spirit today. Thank you for sharing.
