Glockenspiels, not Glocks!

imagesA billboard near me (Knoxville, TN) proposes December 3 as Glock Day. As in: Celebrate this season of joy by gifting your loved ones a major handgun. I do not believe that this is a solution on any micro or macro level of society.
However, what about Glockenspiels? Easy to play, blends well with many voices and musical traditions, cheerful, portable, relatively inexpensive, uplifting, and enduring.
Go ahead, make our day. Give your loved ones a Glockenspiel . . . or listen to fine music with someone you love.
And now, looking at what I can do that won’t hurt anybody, I’ll turn to the task at hand . . .outlining the next chapter of my next book, with some classical guitar music in the background since I don’t have a Glockenspiel CD (yet).

Pamela Schoenewaldt, historical novels of immigration and the search for self in new worlds: WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS, SWIMMING IN THE MOON, and UNDER THE SAME BLUE SKY (all HarperCollins).

    Beautiful transformation of such an ugly proposition, Pamela.

Recent Review
“Absorbing and layered with rich historical details, in Under the Same Blue Sky, Schoenewaldt weaves a tender and at times, heartbreaking story about German-Americans during World War I. With remarkable compassion, the author skillfully portrays conflicted loyalties, the search for belonging, the cruelty of war, and the resilience of the human spirit.”—Ann Weisgarber, author of The Promise and The Personal History of Rachel Dupree
