Harmony

This week the wonderful Karen debut’s as guest host with the challenge “harmony”.  This is what Karen had to sey about the challenge:

Harmony can be translated many different ways, musically, spiritually, or just in harmony with the new art piece calling from the inside to come out. Harmony can be how objects, and colors relate.  I found it looking in thesaurus for another word for “balance” but look at all the definitions of the word

har·mo·ny

*har·mo·ny *[hrmənee]
(/plural/ *har·mo·nies*)
/n/
*1. *     *friendly agreement: *a situation in which there is friendly agreement or accord
*2. *     *pleasing combination of sounds: *a pleasing combination of musical sounds
*3. *     *notes sung or played together: *a combination of notes that are sung or played at the same time.
Changing harmony is one of the most characteristic features of Western music, providing momentum and richness to the melody.
*4. *     *study of chords in music: *the study of the way in which musical chords are constructed and function in relation to one another
*5. *     *pleasantness in arrangement: *a pleasing effect produced by an arrangement of things, parts, or colors
*6. *     *study of texts: *a study or collation of the similarities in parallel texts, especially the four Gospels
*7. *
*parallel text: *a book or manuscript in which several versions of the same text, often a biblical text, are laid out in parallel columns

So go ahead and create something “harmonious” – and keep your fingers crossed that I’ll find some time to play this week.
