Thanks for sharing!
it's a very simplke instrument that was invented several times in several places. The first ones were incan apparently, although the japanese and the italians also invented versions. It's a woodwind instrument usually in the shape of a flattened sphere with a mouthpeice at one end, sometimes they're longer and thinner, in the shape of a sweet potato, or a novelty shape sometimes too. they have usually six or eight holes for your fingers, each a different size and a range of about an octave. Depending on their size and what they're made of they can sound like a recorder or be very deep and soulful or anything in between
I have a hobby that everyone makes fun of, because it does seem rather strange, at first glance, that a person like me will do such a thing. I like doing emroideries...
And recently I also got interested in aromatherapy. I bought a couple of books, but haven't had time to open them yet
Izzat like W C Fields? "How do you like kids?", someone asked him once. He replied, "Boiled or fried".
how do you know when their done ?
I mean the children ,it must be a special gift and would have taken many years to perfect yes ?
Yes, it is very calming, indeed. besides, it solves another problem for me - I can't just sit and watch a TV program, or some movie. I have to be doing something at the same time, otherwise it is just a waste of time for me, and I can't sit still and just watch That's why I seldom go to the movies - it's kind of hard to embroider with the lights off LOL
