arise, shine, for your light has come
Depends upon the type of cutting board. I'm partial to the sounds of the alternating-darkness wooden ones. The plastic ones don't have such good tone. ;)
Definitely agree with Jess on this one. You know, at Greek Orthodox monasteries, they use what's called a talonda. (I'm sure that's not how it's spelled, but I've never seen it in print...) It's a board with a hammer, and the abbess takes it and bangs out a rhythm when it's time for church services to begin. Wood does have such a nice resonant sound to it.
First generation iPod??
Elizabeth, you and the others don't know me. I stumbled over here from Parterre Box (I liked the site blogger's photo.) Your remarks about the Orthodox Abess's wood pounding. I spent a summer in Romania, and visited many Orthodox monasteries, including the magnificent painted churches of Bucovina. Thanks for reminding me.
OK, you need to elaborate on this one Andy. Was he hitting the cutting board? Cutting something on it? Was he just holding it up to his head and trying to hear what it was saying? Was he talking back to it?
Yeah, he just had it resting on his shoulder with his ear tilted toward it, and he looked like he was really concentrating on it. So, to be honest, it may not have been music, it may have been talk radio.
