A-Z Alphabet Challenge : Z is for Zither and Zis one is for you, Arlee
OK so I have two things on my agenda today:
one: Z is for Zither: The zither is a musical string instrument, most commonly found in Slovenia, Austria, Hungary, northwestern Croatia, the southern regions of Germany, alpine Europe and East Asian cultures, including China. <-- info from Wikepedia. natch.
but my main agenda is to show this moving video in honour of Arlee Bird, who comes from a family of jugglers. How well I remember last year when I read his memoir of his juggling family . It was the most wonderful thing I recall from the A-Z Blogging Challenge last year (2011) and it is the reason I joined the challenge again this year.
Arlee, thank you for who you are and all you do. This video, one of our family favourites, is for YOU. Everything wonderful and moving which is in this video makes me think of
happiness, and the happiness I have gotten from this challenge.
I implore people to go to this link of Chris Bliss juggling to the music of the Beatles. It is incredibly uplifting. It is the most viewed video in the history of Youtube. Unfortunately they have disallowed embedding it. Go and watch it anyway. I put it up here for Arlee, and for all of us.
With great respect, thanks, and admiration,
Long Live the A-Z Alphabet Blogging Challenge !!!
