A song

Library. Sunday. Early afternoon. You'd think I should be doing work. And if that's the case, you're absolutely right. Instead, I have chosen to procrastinate. Go figure.

But procrastinating via blogging is somewhat educational. At least it makes your brain get going, mind thinking. What to write about. Geeky... iPad? Valentine's Day? My semester filled with classes I'm thoroughly enjoying?

Not sure why, but this post is a little different. Today, I woke up at about 11, quite well rested, took a shower, and went to breakfast. On a side note, it was an amazing breakfast.

When I got up to clear my stuff, a song came into my head. Well, lyrics that I couldn't place. "Crying who will help me...." Just those 5 words. I knew it was something recent, something from a show? from choir?

I realized it was from the RCDS Festival Chorus concert, this year, which I returned home for. A beautiful song entitled Prayer of the Children, by Kurt Bestor.

Unfortunately, this song also had negative connotations, despite its beauty. In that concert, it was dedicated to the father of a friend who had been killed in the Haiti earthquake. He had worked for the United Nations, and of all people, he was in that country working for peace. I still love the song, and its dedication to him made it even more powerful.

It is hard to believe that anything [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]mbt shoes sale[/URL][/B] so inherently ugly as the MBT shoe could ever catch on [U]mbt sandals[/U] with either the younger generation or the fitness fanatics but it has. [B]mbt shoes best prices[/B] The shoes or I suppose they should be called trainers have thick curved soles and wide straps across the front. Currently [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] the are available in over 20 countries and have sold more than a million pairs a year. Considering that they have a price tag of around $200 it is even [B]MBT[/B] more remarkable.

MBT shoes, which stand for Masai [B]mbt shoes clearance[/B] Barefoot Technology were invented by Karl Muller a Swiss engineer. He [B]MBT[/B] suffered back and knee problems but on a trip to Korea he noticed [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] that after walking barefoot through paddy fields the symptoms were relieved. With further [U]mbt sneakers[/U] research he discovered that the Masai tribesmen from Kenya did not suffer back problems [B]buy mbt shoes[/B] and had perfect posture. Putting these two facts together he decided that [U]discount mbt shoes[/U] the answer was because they were walking on soft surfaces [U]MBT shoes[/U] which yielded as they trod on them. This [U]MBT shoes[/U] was unlike in Europe and America where we tend to walk on firm surfaces such as sidewalks.

The first MBT was manufactured in 1996 and soon [U][B]mbt shoes clearance[/U][/B] became popular on continental Europe. Since then many celebrities have [B]footwear etc[/B] been seen sporting MBTs. The concept basically is that the [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] curved sole creates instability as you walk, which [U][B]mbt shoes sale[/U][/B] mimics the effect of walking barefoot. To counteract this the foot uses muscle to counter this [B][URL=http://www.mbtplus.com/]shoe for worked[/URL][/B] and creates a natural body training effect.


These are pretty bold claims but there is no doubt that MBT shoes are [U]buy mbt shoes[/U] popular both as recreation and sportswear. A study [U]MBT[/U] by Sheffield Hallam University recently concluded that MBT shoes were better for the knees ankles [U]mbt shoes review[/U] than normal shoes. The study also concluded that if [U][B]mbt sneakers[/U][/B] you walk correctly you would take shorter strides while walking in MBTs. Shorter [B]mbt shoes sale[/B] strides would mean more steps and more expending of energy and this [U][B]mbt shoes review[/U][/B] would increase your calorie burn.
