Hover, Hover Ladybug Video

Hover, Hover Ladybug Video

“Hover, Hover Ladybug” is a Finnish lullaby. It has been singing for ages. In my English version I have concentrated on beat instead of a word by word translation. I sing this song without the accompaniment because it is the way how lullabies have performed in Finland. You can listen to “Lennä, lennä leppäkerttu” (Hover, Hover Ladybug) here.

 

 

Finnish Music Sheet:

Lennä, lennä leppäkerttu

English Music Sheet:

hover, hover ladybug

I wish you enjoy listening to this song. My grandmother used to sing it for me when I was a child. I have tried to find the gentle atmosphere she was able to conjure.

Yellingrosa’s Weblog has 1000 followers

Yesterday I was informed by WordPress.com that Yellingrosa’s Weblog has 1000 followers. It really made my day not so that I haven’t been delighted every time when I have got a new follower. The followers are like the icing on the cake. Even though an artist has a need for creating things, he is on his own as long as he is without some support. This support makes things social and the artist feels that he is doing something which makes also others happy. That’s why I can’t thank you, my followers, too much.

I hope this little postcard tells something about my appreciation for you. I didn’t add the numbers here if any of you likes to use it on their own blog. The card is free for private use as it is.

Finally I add here one little poem about the customer which is an opposite of you. This one is the dead of inspiration.

Annoying Customer

That person
doesn’t speak
like a pea pot
but it’s like
the knives
and forks
were raining
without a break
into the
empty sink.
Miracle
how cleverly
he always
manages to
tip onto
the plain
steel.

Everything in the three verses

The Present of Human Being

I’m no good,
I’m no wicked one,
even though
I crucified
Jesus Christ,
I am a human

The Future of Living One

I want to be myself,
and when I am that,
you find no category other,
than a living one.
Yeah, you’ll try to
dissect me into pieces
of knowledge certainty,
because the unpredictable
moves makes you restless,
but take them as signs,
out of the jungle,
less to be afraid.
Every day and night,
I’m heading
over you,
anyway.

Happy Valentine’s Day Card 2014

There is still some time left till Valentine’s Day, but I published my new card in good time in order to give you time to add your own text on my card. There are four versions of this card altogether. Two of them are editable, one is an example and one of them you should used as I have designed it. You find these four cards as well all my free postcards here. The caption tells you if the card is editable. Among my postcards you will find more Valentine’s Day Card than the one I introduce here.

This creation just came up on the paper. Afterwards I found that it is a gentle, warm and loving creature that can symbolize love in general. That’s why I thought that it could be the theme of my next Valentine’s Day Card. In my country Valentine’s Day is a day for a friendship and friends whereas in England and USA it is more of a day when a boy and a girl show their interests in one another. In both cases our creature is the proper choice. He/she looks like one in love and one who has warm feelings toward other beings.

HappyValentine003

You can copy the card above also from this page. Remember to enlarge it first to the new browser tab by clicking it with your mouse cursor. Here it is diminished. Please don’t change the layout of this card version anyway.

Gift animation below introduces you my new Valentine’s Day Card in four versions. The slide changes every eight seconds.

HappyValentine001

I wish all of you the Happiest Valentine’s Day ever

PS You can also print the card on the thin card-board and add your wishes manually. After that you can send a paper card by mail in the envelope. You’ll find the editable card version here. There are also my earlier Valentine’s Cards.

Have a Happy Week

I had just bought BlogPad Pro offline editor for my iPad. I decided to give a try to this editor because of its spell checker. Before this I have used Blogsy offline blog editor for iPad. It worked fine but after the use of the WordPress own texture all the settings disappeared and I have to set them again online. Windows Live Writer instead is capable of doing the code that doesn’t loose its form when the WordPress texture is used. I hope that BlogPad will come up to Windows Live Writer. That is another reason for this purchase. On the prize tag was written 4’49 euros which is some 5’50 US dollars.

In order to make this blog post a little  funnier, I add one of my free English postcard for you to use privately. Please don’t make any changes on it. I believe your family members, friends and colleagues will be happy when they get Have a Happy Week wishes from you.

I wish you also a happy week now and ever after.

The Last Part of this BlogPad Pro Test

Did I meet the success with adding more text on this blog post when I am using the WordPress texture online? Well, the cap between these two paragraphs, BlogPad Pro Icon and last headline, is a bit too big but the BlogPad Pro is able to hold its settings. The settings would be harmonized if I edited the code that BlogPad has generated but the deviation is almost next to nothing so that I don’t see it necessary. Shortly I can say that BlogPad Pro passed the test and dare to add the link where you can get further information about it.

Words

Words,
those funny
little fellows
who play with
our consciousness,
can be tamed
only with silent
absolute.
© Yelling Rosa

Revised

I saw the document on Finnish bird researcher and scientist Jouko Alhainen on television today. He has worked with birds over 40 years and specialized on cranes. He said that the most important aid between two species is the non verbal communication. It is the obvious conclusion because animals can’t speak with the words, but he assumed that the non verbal communication is a good aid among people as well. He said that words can be understood many ways and none of those interpretations are necessarily the one the speaker meant. The birds don’t have misleading gestures. When they spread their wings and move forward against someone, they don’t ask the opponent for a dance but challenge it. The opponent either accepts the challenge or takes the submissive posture.

Of course we can’t expect that humans behave like birds but this little example describe how independent words are and how easily they can mislead us. Anyway, I guess that words are irresolute only in the absolute silent of the mind. This isn’t a new invention but talked by gurus for centuries. Unfortunately they have not had patience to be content with the silent and its harmony but they have started to describe the absolute silent using the words. And in no time the silent is filled with the most queer creatures and ideas; like there could be many sorts of all mighty and matchless God. We all know the consequences when two divine doctrines have crashed.

My little poem, or should I say an observation, is a modest way to praise the silent. I am also happy that the scientifically thinking, like Jouko proved to us, is also aware of how independent words can be. I believe that the strength of poetry is concealed in its nature. The best verses are the children of the silent. It is why they are so comfortable and unifying. Under the hood we all have the same motor of love. This truth is often covered by too many words.

See how Jouko trains the healed crane for flying.

Jouko Alhainen and cranes

 

This happens on the video clip

Andy wrote to me on the comments that he would be happy if he could hear this video in English and here is what I replied to him:

Well, there are three cranes. The one who is running on the field is called Piippa (female). Later on she is going to get well and is able to fly her way back to nature. Thanks to GPS we know that she even finds the flock where she is accepted as a member. The crane that Jouko (Bird Researcher) is tapping is called Kookka (female) the leader of the flock of these three cranes. She is at least 20 years old as she has lived with Jouko that time. She can’t ever fly. Liisi (male), the third crane, is the last in the ranks. He can’t either fly ever again. He has lived 10 years with Jouko.

First Jouko is encouraging Piippa to fly and run after Piippa on the field. Then he taps Kookka on the back and cracks Piippa up because she was training so hard. Kookka agrees with Jouko and they nod the heads. On the clip we can’t see but they went after this episode to sleep. The cranes have own place near the house and Jouko leads them there every night and wishes them good night. At the same time he shuts the door he tells the birds that “See you tomorrow”. This clip is part of the Finnish television document which introduces us Jouko Alhainen’s work and philosophy.

Blue Eyes Wish You Merry Christmas and Bright New Year

Blue Eyes Bright

The fear curves straight
If the top is hard to find
I pray the courage for
My heart to face these
Mountains unconquered
The real lookout point
For my blue eyes bright
To see all things right:
The specter of a man
Without losing
Any line.

The Soul on the Cross

My God, My God,
why have You forsaken me,
created this joy
among all the pain
of the world?
Should I shed tears
or smile?
Without the knowledge
my heart suffers
and mind restlessly
looks for the solution.

If I said:
Our daily bread
is not flat, not round
or soft,
but the profound understanding
that it is made of grain
wherever we go
and sit at the table,
nobody would be all ears.
Why they don’t hear me,
because it alone
put out this flame
of guilt.

Is this why
we are kept on earth?
If this will be worked out
will the gates of Heaven
open to us?
Thus I cry out loud:
let us free the spirit
by breaking bread
with a man
next to us.

Add Your Own Message on the Free Postcard

You can easily add your own message to one of my free postcards where the text editing is allowed. Here I have the card where I have written one of my poems in English. I have used in this example free PhotoScape image editor. You can download it at: http://download.cnet.com/PhotoScape/3000-2192_4-10703122.html.
When you have installed it just run it. The first thing you will see is the Start Screen. There click the Editor. Icons are on the curve of the circle. On the next screen choose the Object tab and there the T letter without shadow. After clicking the T Letter Icon you get the Text Dialog box:

PhSc01

You see on the Text Dialog Box, picture above, the settings I have used. If you like to use them copy all the information to your own Text Dialog box. Please don’t change the card otherwise. You can see the picture on its regular size by clicking it with your mouse cursor. After clicking the picture will be opened on a new browser tab.

And here are the card and its versions:

XXafoE002a XXafoE002c XXafoE002b

When the card is on its real size click it with your mouse cursor using the secondary button of the mouse. Choose Save the Picture As … command from the dropdown list. (Unfortunately I don’t have English User Interface so I might not remember right the name of the command but I am sure that you can pick up the right one with this knowledge.)

I have written how you can add your message on my Christmas card here:
http://yellingrosa.wordpress.com/2011/12/16/new-and-free-christmas-card/

I hope you don’t mind when I spur you to make this Christmas your own Greetings by using one of my card or your own drawing. The Pictures are fine postcards too. You can add circles and other figures on your photos with PhotoScape. Figures are good message boards. Or why not use the piece of paper on the face of your picture and scan it. And finally add the text with PhotoScape.

You find more my free postcards here. The subtitle tells you if the card is for a text editing.

Creative card editing times …

Blow and Draw and Make a Song

I have gathered the material which describes the working principle of the diatonic harmonica, also known as Blues Harp. The shortest way to brief this is probably to tell you how to play the major scale with the diatonic harmonica. I use C major here in my example.

C Major Scale 01a

The numbers represent the holes in the harp and @ sign means that you have to blow and £ sing means that you draw from the certain hole in order to produce a wanted note. This pattern works with all the other major scales played with the 4 or 10 whole diatonic harmonica. In order to change a scale you must have at least two diatonic harmonicas. I have not heard that the 4 hole diatonic harmonica had manufactured in the other scale than C major. 10 hole diatonic harps are the different story. They can be found in many Major and also Minor Scales. Read more about diatonic harmonica here. When you use 10 hole C major diatonic harmonica the middle C is found in the hole number four by blowing. It is a custom habit that harmonica sheets are written one octave lower than they actual are played.

I Am A C Major Song E01SmallerSG

Listen to I Am C Major song by clicking the arrow below.


You can listen to all the songs that are in my harmonica note book here.

I wrote this I Am C Major Song because there is not many if any songs where all the six notes of the Major Scale are used. It is because of the tonality which favors the first, forth and fifth degrees of a major scale. I hope that my song still sounds nice to you.

My material is written in Finnish but you can easily use it because the notes and holes are shown in the international manner. You can browse my harmonica note book here. There you can find for example Mary Had a Lamb. Some American children songs are named in Finnish but you can listen to all the songs that are in the note book, please see the link below the media player in this article. If you don’t see the Juke Box please scroll to the bottom of the page.

With my material you can easily find out if the music is a right hobby for your child. You can purchase the harmonica example from Amazon.

I hope that this material inspires you and your children on the rewarding path of music.

The Hymn of Life

It is a concoction of
sadness and happiness.
There might be,
in the measuring glass,
a bit more salt than sugar.
It startles the serious mind
but nothing is maligned
when the melody is bought
and sung on the beat
of life.

Love Comes in Mysterious Ways

This card is free for a private use as long as the name of designer is not covered up. Don't do any alterations onto this card but use it as it is. If you want to add your message and name use the version of this card with no text.

A Sweet Headache of Love Conversation

“Did you know that snakes smell fine when they are in love?”

“You’re kidding me now?”

No, it’s true. They wear aftershave lotion when they go out on a date.”

“C’mon, knock it off”!

“One cobra told me that and now he is my husband so that I don’t knock it off but hold it in my heart.”

“Well, that’s your worry.”

“Yes, what a nice headache? I feel it from top to toe every day.”

SoPayAttentionSmaller

PS In order to be universal  Love must be a neuter subject but English has no neuter word for the third person in singular. I solved it out way like this: She + He (a man) = one neuter person. Of course a man can be taken as a human being in general.
