A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Landfill Harmonic


A slum built on a landfill.  Someone refurbished a violin shell found in landfill and the idea of making instruments from rubbish resulted in Landfill Orchestra.  Absolutely incredible video will make you weep.  The human spirit soars…music rising out of the landfills of Cateura, Paraguay.

The most poignant statement for me in the clip is “People realize we shouldn’t throw away trash carelessly. We shouldn’t throw away people either.”   Brilliant and beautiful.   It’s lovely to see the faces of these young people walking together with their instruments.  They could be anywhere in the world.

Never underestimate the power of music!  Where there is a will, there’s a way.

Nothing stands in the way of vision and the human spirit.   Peace and joy.  Happy Hanukkah, my friend.

Coming up next will be my free-spirited “optical spectrum” fiber play…stay tuned.

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!

  1. The video was blocked. Dang!
    Well, I still enjoy your thoughts and photos.
    As always, they give me inspiration.

    • Sorry that didn’t work for you, Andy. I just look at it through wordpress and directly and both times it pulled right up. Would you mind give it a try again? It’s really cool vid.

  2. Thanks for linking the video on the top of this post. Wonderful to see how human creativity persists.
