Oops! My blog has a got a Google issue or some other complicated problem. So I just need to try an itsy bitsy post and hope this will rectify. I’ve posted this quote many times on various blogs over the years. You could say that it has become a humorous reflection of my inner/outer self.
“When I open my eyes the day will begin like a good dream, bright and lucid as imaginary water. It will run its course in a syncopated rhythm until after twilight and then it will disappear into my darkest smile.”
Quote from SBS TV documentary: Lillian Roxon – Mother Of Rock
1. Music: A shift of accent in a passage or composition that occurs when a normally weak beat is stressed. 2. Something, such as rhythm, that is syncopated.
Syncopation is when you accent a note that is NOT expected to get an accent. You also get syncopation when you omit or underplay a note that IS expected to get an accent. Simply put, syncopation is off-the-beat accents. In speaking, syncopation would sound like this: “I went to THE store TOday.” Since the syllables “the” and “to-” are not normally stressed, emphasizing them creates..
Syncopation is the main rhythmic feature in Jazz, Blues and most Latin style music.
S.O. (Significant Other) is a gender-neutral way to refer to someone’s boy/girlfriend.
This is the way it goes on Vef’s syncopated, uptempo day. Ridiculous writing by a compassionate person. Haha!
