Music is one of those things in life that is universal. I think life would be empty without it. It’s essential to humanity as we know it. Music has been around since the beginning of time. Even before it could be recorded or written down, there was music. As music progressed through the years and more instruments were created, the styles of music were ever changing and evolving. From the Renaissance period to the Baroque period to the Romantic period, every era had a different feel to the sound of the music. Now more than ever, there are more genres that give people a wider variety to choose from. Rock, classical, rap, country, movie scores, gospel, techno, and those few genres are just the tip of all that is being created every day. Every person has a type of music that they prefer or like to listen to over other genres, and every type of music affects people in different ways.
A common saying is that the two things we cannot avoid are death and taxes. We should add a third pillar to the old saying by including change. Change affects young and old, both genders and all races and religious backgrounds. No one and no thing is above its reach.
Many university and college campuses across Texas are avid recyclers.
Amarillo College, on the other hand, doesn’t put forth much in the way of recycling.
Everybody is looking for love. Regardless if we realize it or not, love is what we all ultimately yearn for. Human beings spend copious amounts of time in the pursuit of love. We do everything we can – online dating, going out to clubs and bars – to find that perfect catch. So much time, effort and money is spent searching for the “right one.”
Plastic bags and Styrofoam cups adorn the fence line. Newspapers billow along the roadside. Cigarette butts are scattered across the ground like stars across the night sky. It’s a beautiful scene.
Well, OK, maybe it isn’t. In fact, it’s downright ugly.
I detest litter, especially because there is absolutely no reason for it. Tossing a soda can out of the car window is no big deal; it’s just one can – except it isn’t. There are more than 20 million drivers in the state of Texas. Just imagine if everyone tossed “just one” thing out the window every day.
