Art Versus Commercials
Today’s date is special and soon we are going to tell you why. Meanwhile, every step taken is a step closer the realization of our passion which is to make a difference by helping others to make a difference through our challenge: USA Make a Difference! There’s no reason why commerce can not participate in doing things for the common good while simultaneously creating visibility for their business offerings. I was raised in a household in which marketing was considered bad. It was due to the fear of being brainwashed by television commercials that my hippie parents had. And speaking of commercials, as I write this, the music I’m listening to on YouTube is being interrupted by commercials. Annoying I must admit.
History in the Making
All right, time now to focus on why this day is a special one. Welcome to December 17, 2020, otherwise known as Wright Brothers Day. That’s right, on this day in 1903 there were two brothers who changed the world’s transportation means forever. Near Kitty Hawk North Carolina (now known as Kill Devil Hills!?) is where they did their famous launch of a plane that marked the first time in history that a heavier than air contraption actually flew.
Escaping the Pandemic
And not that long after, my idol Erik Weisz, better known as Harry Houdini, did his escape while on a plane’s wing! But airplane’s of course were not just about magicians doing stunts on them, the Wright Brothers revolutionized travel. The irony today of course is that air transportation has a hit a wall due to the lovely Pandemic that most of us want to remove ourselves from, a prison of sorts that even Mr. Houdini would not be able to escape.
Soundtracks Can Set the Mood
I’m listening to house trance psychedelic on headphones as I write this. I find that sometimes I don’t just block out other noise going on near my home office (sitting cross legged on a bed with a laptop) but it can gives the illusion to me of typing things that are profound, because they have a soundtrack to go along with them. But when the music is shut off, it is really just another blog entry.
