I’ve joked with friends and other people on occasion that I’ve tried to kick the breathing habit. I’ve probably even mentioned it here before. The idea is that it would be one less thing to worry about. Of course actually kicking the habit is rather difficult. Provided you’re reading this text, I’m sure you’d be in agreement.
I’ll be doing a bit of heavy breathing today. Ok, get your mind out of the gutter you pervert. I’m not going to be stalking someone, or making phone calls. I’ll be out mountain biking. Taking in cool fresh air. Pounding the pedals. Releasing tension and expelling stress. That’s how I enjoy myself. Of course when heavy breathing is shared between two people having fun… Well then you can let your mind wander.
Today’s tune is all about that breathing thing. The didgeridoo is an Australian instrument that is wholly unique. My dad has a small on in his house. I’m not sure where he got it from. I’ve attempted to blow thru it but have never gotten anything close to the correct sound out of it. There is obviously some serious technique going on to make the instrument sing. One such thing that I’ve heard of is that it’s like taking a continual breath.
Think about that for a moment. A continual breath. How exactly does that happen? I know that it’s not physically possible to do that, but there is some technique that allows a master didgeridoo player to make continual sounds even while they are breathing in. I suppose it’s one of those mystical secrets.
Anyway, I figured with my friday issues – this needs to be a de-stressing weekend. I will pass along that de-stress to you as well. Listen, relax, enjoy. You will have to get the CD at the website as the music is not on iTunes.
Go forth and breathe!
