Vegetarian Ideal

Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
- Albert Einstein

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn


Affirmation of life is the spiritual act by which man ceases to live thoughtlessly and begins to devote himself to his life
with reverence in order to give it true value.
— Albert Schweitzer

Masterpieces of Chinese Music: A Musical Performance by Music from China

more about the exhibition Eccentric Visions: The Worlds of Luo Ping
(1733—1799), on view at the Met October 6, 2009—January 10, 2010:

rich sonorities and compelling melodies of Chinese music are invoked on
string instruments consisting of the erhu and related two-string
fiddles, pipa (lute), zheng (long, plucked zither), ruan (moon guitar),
and yangqin (hammered dulcimer). The ensemble Music from China performs
masterworks from the Chinese classical and folk repertoire with an array
of stylistic variations, timbral colors, and musical imagery. The
program includes such immortal classical compositions as Ambush on Ten
Sides, a powerful re-creation of a third-century battle scene, and the
romance with nature of A Moonlit River in Spring. Folk music selections
span China's broad landscape, from the urban sophistication of Shanghai
and Guangzhou (Canton) to the vast expanse of the Mongolian steppes.

Life is like that
