are the decorative inlays highlighting the edges on the faces and backs of most stringed instruments. Since the
first violins were made in the 16th Century, purflings have been
consistently a key component of the aesthetic of violins,
violas and cellos.
A tiny sandwiching of three woods of contrasting colors is set in a
carved channel that travels along the edge of the entire front and backside of
the instrument. Aside from adorning the
instrument, purflings may add flexibility to the top plate while reinforcing
the plate's edge against cracks running with the wood grain.
materials must be selected to create the purflings. These vary widely among violinmakers. The two outer strips tend to be made darker,
while the inner strip is of lighter color.
Some use ebony for the dark strips, though it is a hard and unbending
wood. Others may use maple for all
three, while coloring the outer strips in a dying process using Lockwood and

hoy pasaron puras cosas malas, asi que bien.
conclui que para mi es mas facil pensar negativamente que positivamente como lo he estado haciendo estas ultimas semanas... pensar positivo es absurdo y agotador, quizas es mas agotador que absurdo, queria escribir la palabra absurdo.
me lei las cartas, las cartas de las hadas... fui con el diego, CRASO ERROR, siento que tengo que colar a mi "circulo" de amistades, quedarme con personas que no sacan todo lo mala onda que tengo, si... porque no a todos les hablo cosas negativas, con mis amigos mas cercanos me siento alegre y soy bastante agradable, que queri q te diga.
la mina de las cartas, senti que era media chanta, me dijo hartas cosas, esto fue el sabado, algunas cosas me hacian sentido, pero mas que nada fueron consejos, aun los estoy racionalizando por eso no he estado de muy buen genio.

KathaPantas why not humility?
WHY NOT HUMILITY?
Erle Frayne Argonza / Ra
Why not be humble at all moments
Of association with fellowmen?
Didnâ€™t the shopworker teach you
That one rudiment of survival
Is the intelligent recognition
Of your limitationsâ€™ omnipresence
Inspite of endowments of craft &
For there too are circumstances
That are beyond you grasps
In the snares of Naivete
And may even cause a furor
Of gig and limitless giggle?
For Boastfulness and Arrogance
Are twin eagles of deception
That once theyâ€™d lift you aflight
Theyâ€™d shake you off the winds to crash
Tragically on the solid ground
Of defeat and humiliation?
You are a noble messenger
That speaks for transparent Security
One that makes a person immensely
By the commonwealth of all men.
