Bournemouth’s Churches

Bournemouth’s Churches A church isn’t merely a building of stone or a place where people meet. Many believe a church is not a physical structure or venue. Rather, they believe that, in a sense, a church is what people do and who they are. It is people who are the church.

“Middle Eastern” Water Fountain Contributions

“Middle Eastern” Water Fountain Contributions As early as the 12th century, the development of water fountain technology in what is now known as Iraq, was being pursued by engineers with vigor and inventiveness. The fountains of the Greeks and Romans were mostly dramatic in nature and secondarily were functional.

One such described invention was called the Peacock Fountain which used technology similar to a modern toilet: when a plug was pulled from the peacock’s tail, dirty water emptied into the fountain base and clean water entered the basin; meanwhile, rising water in the base caused a float device to activate a mechanical servant figurine to … Read entire article »

Or perhaps, it is just like being in two places at the same time. The soul and suffering of the east, with its depth and solitude and deep meaning – coupled with the grandeur and structure of the west, with its ambition to accomplish and build while absorbing new ways. The real art in composing such a musical work is in deciding how to manage the two messages at once.  A bit like an entrepreneur, who deftly whips through the turbulent … Read entire article »
