A Perceptive Intent for You

Perceptive reading and listening is acquired through daily practice. Most assuredly, when you are reading a subject that brings pleasure, and is your “cup of tea,” as the expression goes, it’s easier to discern hidden treasures while looking in on that subject or topic.

Is Perceptive Reading Needed Before Perception?

The perceptive meaning is not the same as perception (an idea, a belief or an image you have as a result of how you see or understand something) .

Perceptive: Is having or showing the ability to see or understand things quickly, especially things that are not obvious.

Oxford Learner’s Dictionaries

Now when your reading involves a topic that has never been a serious interest or motivation, important points are often overlooked, even though they would open an in-depth angle to mentally grasp the information.

The Perceptive Desire and Intention Yields Results

For example, you have people who read books on flowers, while others love reading about cars. Imagine for a moment when they switch books with one another, how much will each learn or grasp the topic?

The person who loves flowers reads the car book slower and gets less on the subject.

While reading about flowers: The person who loves plants will unearth and grasp more insightful points reading the flower book than the car book.

The person who loves cars reads the flower book slower and gets less on the subject.

While reading about cars: The person sees not only how things work but also the imagination becomes active on how to make it even better. Cosmetically as well. Have you seen teenagers with their first souped up car? (Reference 1950s to 1990s car pictures)

When you already love a subject, your perception of it becomes even closer/clearer to the mark or bulls-eye right because of the sincere intent and efforts. ‘My dear Watson you are indubitable correct’

Take a listen at these following 4 podcasts locations and find a topic you are interested in to the point of having an in-depth understanding as well. Maybe even to the point of talking about it further with others

Art and Music Laura Farre Rozada

In part 1 of Art and Music Journey in The Mind, it states: “Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for (art and music) play.” Well, along with part 2 (Laura Farre Rozada) on this subject, there is an experience that I describe as superb! You can believe there are others who feel the same way.

This article: Art and Music Laura Farre Rozada
October 29, 2019 originally posted

First, let’s talk more about the next music section of this article.

Art and Music Journey in the Mind Part 2

There are more musical instruments than most people can readily name — can we say music college majors? How many of us know in depth these categories of instruments?

  • Keyboard
  • Guitar
  • Percussion
  • Brass
  • Bowed strings
  • Woodwind

If you are like me, the first three in the list subconsciously come to mind, while the others require more thought. Depending on which maestro you are talking with and their interesting background culture, they will break the above 6 categories down on such a granular level that can leave your mind wondering for a bit.

Do you have a favorite instrument? Do you know how to play it? If you have a social media account, feel free to share this article with the instrument you play. Hey, some of you can share it on Instagram with your recital or band photos.

Did you know this about the pocbooks.com commentaries?

The musicians highlighted here show skills in voice, instruments, and production. Their style is who they are and yet; like with most humans, own diverse qualities to varying degrees that encompass colors of warmth and connection.

Poetry – Instruments of the Soul
There are times when a guitar just will not do.
Those moments may be many or be few.
The flute may get the attention.
After a while, there is something else that could be mentioned.
The piano may be suggested to be so bold.
However, it is the harp’s ability to soothe the soul.

Piano Masterworks Alive Laura Farre Rozada

What a superb performance! Have you ever said that after a show? Please allow me to share with you a performance myself and about fifty to eighty (the comfortable seating venue) others were able to enjoy!

The award-winning pianist and mathematician

Laura Farré Rozada

She completed her Master of Music degree as the Royal College of Music in London.

The audience that night was cordially — lively and quite a few of them specialized in fields of technical, medical and music. One composer I had an opportunity to chat with after the performance stated Laura is of high quality and a “virtuoso.”

In my brief meeting with her, I found her personality to be in the same expressions of her moving pianist skills displayed that evening. What do I mean? Allow me to explain from some of my notes I jotted down. Though I had planned on just taking it all in for an evening of food, wine, good conversation, and music; when Laura Farré Rozada started playing, I could not help but pick up my pocket sized square journal to take notes.

Laura Farré Rozada First Album

The French Reverie is Laura’s first solo album
From Spain, France, Germany, Canada, Bulgaria, and UK; her performances have been well received. Remember the virtuoso comment mentioned.

These sentiments are elaborated on here…

Musicology and Symmetry merges with Laura Farré Rozada

The pianist Laura merges sounds, beats, and music; I am not just talking as a figure of speech either. There were times when she tapped on the piano like they were bongo drums. If you think I’m kidding, I’m not. I heard from three persons who get to enjoy the arts on this level every month of the year say, in so many words, she was a new experience for them.

What a classical experience!

Every keystroke pulsated through her face and cheeks. Laura’s fingers moves at the speed of twilight. Her lips curl to give the instruments voice.
As her hair joins the chorus, the flocks starts flowing to the unseen melody of the air!
Product of Culture

The above describes the opening of her performance’s first song.

Fractuals are Real in Her Music

A Professor in computer science while in conversation with me during intermission, stated: I started seeing fractals (Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales) in her music. Yet there is still quite something I’m still missing or looking for here.

My response with a lighthearted smile: “It is on a metaphysical and 5th dimension level.”

You could see the eureka light bulb come on in his head. “Yes, that is what I was looking for.”

Note in Details: I used the term metaphysical because I ascertained he would have more of a comprehensive view of what I was stating; rather than just saying my favorite word, “Spiritual.” The term 5th dimension also was referenced because from his expert analysis or opinion for some of his deeply contemplated expressions, you could discern he was in Quantum physics’ mode. To observe him during the performance before the intermission truly showed me the power and enlightening effect Laura’s music had on the audience.

More Listening Observations of this Pianist

Laura Farre Rozada allows every note, every vibration of molecules play out in parts of her composition.

See and hear her perform the music composition Sacrifice

There were moments when the anguish of this piece was on her face. The audience’s reaction had persons bowing their heads up and down not just in the rhythm; but yes, yes, I understand what your are saying. I feel what you are saying. One distinguish gentleman at certain pitches was placing his hands together… He closed his eyes… Was there dew drops of moisture on his eyelids?

Turning around to look at the audience, they were remembering family and events in their lives that meant a lot to them.

The Meaning We Realize

At moments, Laura would allow the last stroke of the keys fade away as she looks softly at them; it is though she is making love with music. Such a gift along with her excellent timing and precision, Laura Farre Rozada is a masterful pianist gem.

Today’s discussion uses an illustration about washing hands, which has been shared in lighted-hearted times, in general and why we do it. However, during the first quarter of the 2020 year, it became ever more mindful for us humans to revive or renew our thoughts on it; also with an elevated additional thought.

Art and Music Journey in The Mind

Since there is a time for learning, exercise, and work; there is also certainly a time for ( art and music ) play.

This article was originally posted on October 2019.

Playing for children often involves high energy of imagination and talking to one another.

Talk about high energy, how about the teenagers? What does your daily routine look like?
In schools around the world, do they still teach art and music courses?
It is expected that when you join a band you will learn music. However, there was a time in some elementary and middle schools you had a certain part of class room time to learn about the basic skills of playing a flute.
The same went for art.
It was not until high school you had to start picking specialized courses if you ever wanted to exercise your creative flow in that way during school hours.

The above is a conversational piece with a coffee shop vibe. As you know, conversations by their very nature are meant to be enjoyed. Conversations do not turn into arguments when there is the spirit of enjoying each other’s company.
Some of us have and will continue to enjoy our discussions over art, literature, and music.

Did you know this about art?

There are three classical branches of Art

I hope these interesting facts will show you what is innately known. That the mind can imaginatively see art in everything and make it materialize literally overtime.
Observe the skills required to proficiently create the following branches of art on a professional or occupational level.

Paintings

Shown in office buildings, restaurants, and homes. The owners of these establishments are dressing up their walls to be inviting and warm to set the tone of the environment. The environment is just as important to understanding what the prospective and perceptive clients are looking for; as well as their personality input. For example, a farmer will probably pass over placing huge buildings to decorate the walls in his home. However, an entrepreneur with dreams of owning a building that size just might say “Exactly what I was looking for!” All the while, you will peak the farmer’s interest with people smiling, lakes, and camping scenes. Do you have such skills with a paint brush?

Sculptures

Are 3 dimensional carvings made into stone, wood, and casting metal. It takes a precision of accuracy and patience IMHO like no other in the arts. It is not an easy thing to recover from the mistakes made and can be quite costly. To this day, Michelangelo (see Sistine Chapel) , has to be one of the most renowned Italian sculptures of all time. Though he was commissioned by Pope Julius II to paint the Sistine Chapel, he made clear in history that he is a sculptor more than a painter. Imagine that? All the same, how did this man create all these stone gems to perfection? He possessed the skills of precision accuracy and patience. Do you have such skills?

Architecture

As referenced with the Sistine Chapel, the paintings on the ceiling walls, people travel from all over the world to see them; the architectural structure is no less aesthetically studied in history books from the renaissance period. Do you understand the art and engineering behind designing such buildings?

Then we have the animating performing arts! Often the ones who are not as skilled with stylus tools can find their place in music and theater. This is to make you aware everyone can find their place in exercising creativity. Have you experienced the joy of creating music or dance?

Speaking of Music

In part two of this article we will explore a couple of instruments and thoughts on music. It has been said more than once by this writer, music is one of life’s pleasures. Really, there are many you will tell you it makes life worth living through the good and tough times! Do you agree? I’m confident that the students visiting this website are in agreement with that last sentence.

So by all means please share this article on your social media accounts and with close friends.
I’m pleased you are enjoying the Product of Culture aka pocbooks.com website

A Poem with the flavor of art

But first, you will also want to check out the product of culture artist pick website:

mariedigbyart.com

Seeing beauty at times takes a trained eye.
It is more than just looking up at the sky.
Some can take the easy way out by repeating what everyone has said before.
But in order to be original the ability to see beauty has to go beyond the surface of the door.
The face is just a shield.
What’s inside happens to be the true yield.
It often takes insight and training to see beyond such borders to not go along with the established order.
You don’t have to wait until you are older.
Young in age too can find beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Prince and the Pauper Profound Reading 2

Welcome to The Prince and the Pauper Profound Reading 2

This was originally posted on April 15, 2019 – Jame (Writer & podcaster)

Prince and the Pauper Profound Reading 2

This is a new way of looking at Mark Twain ‘s timeless classic. Take each chapter at time to learn something new.

James’ Commentary Opening

A child is born with a heart of gold; poets, songwriters, and sages have pondered according to each gifted style of speaking and writing statements.

When that child is born, whether the parents had prepared for the child’s arrival, or the child’s announcement turned out to be a surprise, surprise; the mother and father realize (the privileged responsibility) it is up to them to keep that child’s heart in a gold (innocent) state.

Whatever the environment may be, from the poor to the rich, we can see early on what the child’s personality is growing towards; how brightly the child’s heart will continue to shine.

The Prince and the Pauper Fundamental Reading

The Prince and Pauper

Author Mark Twain

Public Domain Literature (Published in 1881-82)

A story that has been told and written over the years about a prince. And a pauper; a very poor person.

Chapter 2 The Prince and the Pauper

Did you know mendicancy is the practice of begging for money or food in the streets?

Let us skip a number of years.

London was fifteen hundred years old, and was a great town—for that day. It had a hundred thousand inhabitants—some think double as many. The streets were very narrow, and crooked, and dirty, especially in the part where Tom Canty lived, which was not far from London Bridge. The houses were of wood, with the second story projecting over the first, and the third sticking its elbows out beyond the second. The higher the houses grew, the broader they grew. They were skeletons of strong criss-cross beams, with solid material between, coated with plaster. The beams were painted red or blue or black, according to the owner’s taste, and this gave the houses a very picturesque look. The windows were small, glazed with little diamond-shaped panes, and they opened outward, on hinges, like doors.

The house which Tom’s father lived in was up a foul little pocket called Offal Court, out of Pudding Lane. It was small, decayed, and rickety, but it was packed full of wretchedly poor families. Canty’s tribe occupied a room on the third floor. The mother and father had a sort of bedstead in the corner; but Tom, his grandmother, and his two sisters, Bet and Nan, were not restricted—they had all the floor to themselves, and might sleep where they chose. There were the remains of a blanket or two, and some bundles of ancient and dirty straw, but these could not rightly be called beds, for they were not organised; they were kicked into a general pile, mornings, and selections made from the mass at night, for service.

Bet and Nan were fifteen years old—twins. They were good-hearted girls, unclean, clothed in rags, and profoundly ignorant. Their mother was like them. But the father and the grandmother were a couple of fiends. They got drunk whenever they could; then they fought each other or anybody else who came in the way; they cursed and swore always, drunk or sober; John Canty was a thief, and his mother a beggar. They made beggars of the children, but failed to make thieves of them. Among, but not of, the dreadful rabble that inhabited the house, was a good old priest whom the King had turned out of house and home with a pension of a few farthings, and he used to get the children aside and teach them right ways secretly. Father Andrew also taught Tom a little Latin, and how to read and write; and would have done the same with the girls, but they were afraid of the jeers of their friends, who could not have endured such a queer accomplishment in them.

All Offal Court was just such another hive as Canty’s house. Drunkenness, riot and brawling were the order, there, every night and nearly all night long. Broken heads were as common as hunger in that place. Yet little Tom was not unhappy. He had a hard time of it, but did not know it. It was the sort of time that all the Offal Court boys had, therefore he supposed it was the correct and comfortable thing. When he came home empty-handed at night, he knew his father would curse him and thrash him first, and that when he was done the awful grandmother would do it all over again and improve on it; and that away in the night his starving mother would slip to him stealthily with any miserable scrap or crust she had been able to save for him by going hungry herself, notwithstanding she was often caught in that sort of treason and soundly beaten for it by her husband.

No, Tom’s life went along well enough, especially in summer. He only begged just enough to save himself, for the laws against mendicancy were stringent, and the penalties heavy; so he put in a good deal of his time listening to good Father Andrew’s charming old tales and legends about giants and fairies, dwarfs and genii, and enchanted castles, and gorgeous kings and princes. His head grew to be full of these wonderful things, and many a night as he lay in the dark on his scant and offensive straw, tired, hungry, and smarting from a thrashing, he unleashed his imagination and soon forgot his aches and pains in delicious picturings to himself of the charmed life of a petted prince in a regal palace. One desire came in time to haunt him day and night: it was to see a real prince, with his own eyes. He spoke of it once to some of his Offal Court comrades; but they jeered him and scoffed him so unmercifully that he was glad to keep his dream to himself after that.

He often read the priest’s old books and got him to explain and enlarge upon them. His dreamings and readings worked certain changes in him, by- and-by. His dream-people were so fine that he grew to lament his shabby clothing and his dirt, and to wish to be clean and better clad. He went on playing in the mud just the same, and enjoying it, too; but, instead of splashing around in the Thames solely for the fun of it, he began to find an added value in it because of the washings and cleansings it afforded.

Tom could always find something going on around the Maypole in Cheapside, and at the fairs; and now and then he and the rest of London had a chance to see a military parade when some famous unfortunate was carried prisoner to the Tower, by land or boat. One summer’s day he saw poor Anne Askew and three men burned at the stake in Smithfield, and heard an ex- Bishop preach a sermon to them which did not interest him. Yes, Tom’s life was varied and pleasant enough, on the whole.

By-and-by Tom’s reading and dreaming about princely life wrought such a strong effect upon him that he began to ACT the prince, unconsciously. His speech and manners became curiously ceremonious and courtly, to the vast admiration and amusement of his intimates. But Tom’s influence among these young people began to grow now, day by day; and in time he came to be looked up to, by them, with a sort of wondering awe, as a superior being. He seemed to know so much! and he could do and say such marvellous things! and withal, he was so deep and wise! Tom’s remarks, and Tom’s performances, were reported by the boys to their elders; and these, also, presently began to discuss Tom Canty, and to regard him as a most gifted and extraordinary creature. Full-grown people brought their perplexities to Tom for solution, and were often astonished at the wit and wisdom of his decisions. In fact he was become a hero to all who knew him except his own family—these, only, saw nothing in him.

Privately, after a while, Tom organised a royal court! He was the prince; his special comrades were guards, chamberlains, equerries, lords and ladies in waiting, and the royal family. Daily the mock prince was received with elaborate ceremonials borrowed by Tom from his romantic readings; daily the great affairs of the mimic kingdom were discussed in the royal council, and daily his mimic highness issued decrees to his imaginary armies, navies, and viceroyalties.

After which, he would go forth in his rags and beg a few farthings, eat his poor crust, take his customary cuffs and abuse, and then stretch himself upon his handful of foul straw, and resume his empty grandeurs in his dreams.

And still his desire to look just once upon a real prince, in the flesh, grew upon him, day by day, and week by week, until at last it absorbed all other desires, and became the one passion of his life.

One January day, on his usual begging tour, he tramped despondently up and down the region round about Mincing Lane and Little East Cheap, hour after hour, bare-footed and cold, looking in at cook-shop windows and longing for the dreadful pork-pies and other deadly inventions displayed there—for to him these were dainties fit for the angels; that is, judging by the smell, they were—for it had never been his good luck to own and eat one. There was a cold drizzle of rain; the atmosphere was murky; it was a melancholy day. At night Tom reached home so wet and tired and hungry that it was not possible for his father and grandmother to observe his forlorn condition and not be moved—after their fashion; wherefore they gave him a brisk cuffing at once and sent him to bed. For a long time his pain and hunger, and the swearing and fighting going on in the building, kept him awake; but at last his thoughts drifted away to far, romantic lands, and he fell asleep in the company of jewelled and gilded princelings who live in vast palaces, and had servants salaaming before them or flying to execute their orders. And then, as usual, he dreamed that HE was a princeling himself.

All night long the glories of his royal estate shone upon him; he moved among great lords and ladies, in a blaze of light, breathing perfumes, drinking in delicious music, and answering the reverent obeisances of the glittering throng as it parted to make way for him, with here a smile, and there a nod of his princely head.

And when he awoke in the morning and looked upon the wretchedness about him, his dream had had its usual effect—it had intensified the sordidness of his surroundings a thousandfold. Then came bitterness, and heart-break, and tears.

Allow me to Share a Thought

Mark Twain was a humorist. Which  means he used his writing craft to motivate you into laughing at life’s situations. His sense of humor at that time shows us the value of a light-hearted, or in some cases well-intentioned, amusing thought.

Until next time: Remember, if you read something that improves your life for the better, it becomes your reality.

African Grey Parrot Home with Shira

African Grey Parrot Home with Shira

Over the years, we have discussed dogs, horses, and even the cats who ignore us on this website. Now we have the opportunity to talk about the African Grey Parrot.

This Article was repaired or refurbished on March 1, 2020. It was originally posted on July 24, 2019 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

This article came about via conversation with Shira, an animal lover. Notice what she shares with us in the sub-heading, A Warm Temperament Needed
The African Grey Parrot

These birds are intelligent with a distinct red tail. They can learn a vocabulary of over 1,500 words. You never have to carry on a conversation with yourself again. An interesting point is the price cost for the African Grey; which ranges from the mid hundreds in US currency to thousands of dollars. Take a look at the photos below of this beautiful bird.
Shira’s Family Member

Shira is one human that loves animals. She takes great care in knowing how to treat the animals in her care. With that being said, she also has a Great Dane in the family in addition to Bella (African Grey). How do her children get along you might wonder?

Gratefully, we have Shira to tell us about this family arrangement with insightful notes to keep in mind when you are looking to develop a friendship with these birds.

A Warm Temperament Needed

Shira tells us the following experience with the bird’s temperament.

Bella is very calm.. when she is in her cage, it’s her home and does NOT want to be bothered. We let her come to us. She will warn you by making a quick scratch with her foot to her face and a squeak. Bella does bite if you push to hold her. Enough to draw blood; but as a warning, she does not like what you are trying to do. She will come out on her own time. When Bella flies she lands on the floor and explores.

She loves the vacuum cleaner and hanging upside down from the door frame. If you are sitting on the floor and doing something, she will come out to see what you’re doing. Very curious; while always watching and listening to everyone and everything around her. She loves drinking out of coffee cups and mimics like sounds that are often made in the house.

She says things in a man’s voice as well as women’s voice. Bella will mimic your voice if your around enough. Lots of sounds Including a super loud alarm clock beeping. 6 am, every morning. lol. Bird chirps (mimics my little kiwi, a female lovebird.)A microwave beeping and many more noises and sounds.

Her previous owner was an elderly women who she adored. Bigger parrots are generally a one person, one gender owner. She took to me so when she is out and about exploring, she will step up on my arm with no complaints.
The (Bella) African Grey Parrot Diet

As for what I feed her? There is a special blend of parrot food that is brightly colored and almost reminds me of Trix cereal. Her all time favorite, although, is sunflower seeds

Shira, what are your insights for anyone looking to purchase or adopt one of these magnificent birds of creation?

If someone is looking to adopt a beautiful exotic large parrot, I recommend mainly patience. The best way I can describe bringing one into your family is they are like abused animals. When you adopt an animal that has been abused, they are frightened, skittish, and on edge. The more you have patience and show them love; the more they will come around. Same as parrots. Let them come to you. Take the time to feed and love them; talk to them… like you would a dog that has been abused… they are extremely smart. I’ve also raised macaws and small birds and parrots.
Thank You Shira and Bella

The Product of Culture website gives a heartfelt thanks to Bella, who this time desired Shira to do all the talking in this interview. Have you come to the conclusion that it is a wonderful thing they have found one another? Once again, thank you Shira for all these tips on how to take care of the African Grey Parrot.

Why I Love Irish Dancing

Why I Love Irish Dancing

This Article was repaired or refurbished on February 20, 2020. It was originally posted on August 25, 2012 Check the site archive.today for verification of pocbooks.com online presence.

The Irish Dance Attraction. In this “Young Minds and Students of Today” post, Emma (15yrs) tells us why she thinks Irish dancing is fun. The dance involves strength and grace. The history of the dance is not clear. Some sources report that during the era(750-1060 AD) of the conquering Vikings many books from the 7th and 8th century were destroyed or lost. Books that could have shed light on the origins of this cultural dance. Today people express their reasons for learning the dance, whether it is by tradition or choice, all the way down to this 21st century people are still Irish dancing. See the Irish dance feature and then read Emma’s concise explanation of why she participates Irish dancing. Thank you Emma

Irish Dance Competition Example
An Irish Dance Teenagers View

Emma ‘s Thoughts
“I started doing Irish dancing when I was 3 years of age and have been doing it ever since. I come from an Irish background so its tradition. I love Irish dancing and it has become part of my life. I don’t just like participating because it’s fun and keeps me in shape, but I love to compete. Competing in dancing is an amazing experience, as everyone wants to win, but we are all so competitive. I attend dance classes 3-4 times a week and I do soft and heavy shoe. I can’t explain how important Irish dancing is to me, without it, I wouldn’t be who I am today.”
Emma

The Recap
Again, we can thank Emma for sharing her feelings about the Irish dance. As a recap, these are the points we can take away from the interview:
Irish dance involves strength and grace.
There are competitions
Irish dance can influence a young person’s outlook.

If you found this interesting, be sure to make someone’s day by telling them about this interview!
