Tuesday’s A to Z challenge: “N”


Event Type: General Blogging

Start Date: Tuesdays, recurring weekly

Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
Last week we had the “tagged M”-challenge, so this week we’ll create a new turn with “N” – I’m sure you’ll also find a photo, a story or a music title tagged with “N”! Feel free to add in the comments below the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “N”!!! Myself I’ll focus on the term “no matter”:


Often mothers of blues guitarists (I have the focus on the roots of the blues masters 1920-1940) didn’t like it, if their sons switched to blues, leaving gospel music. Josh White for example sang with a pseudonym as a blues singer, trying not to hurt his mother. At first I didn’t understand that. But then, trying to write down the lyrics of some TAMPA RED songs, I began to understand…
me, singing “NO MATTER HOW”:

I like to play songs of TAMPA RED, 1904-1981… for example the song NO MATTER HOW SHE DONE IT: “I know a girl by the name of Mae Lou / she shook it so much / she had a diamond blue.” CHORUS: “No matter how she done it / No matter how she done it / No matter how she done it / she done it just the same.” … “The copper brought her in, she didn’t need no bail, she shook it for the judge and put the cop in jail (no matter HOW she done it)… ”

  12. I see what you mean, bit of a contrast to Gospel! Here is my contribution for the week: http://travelwithintent.com/2014/04/08/n-is-for-nelson-mandela/


    • good to have a sculpture as a tribute to this great man; too many sculptures were made for the wrong persons…
      another sculpture in Den Haag, I took this photo, because I adore this philosopher very much (a landmark in the history of thinking too, SPINOZA):

  15. Personally I am pleased that musicians switched to playing the blues – I enjoy listening to this type of music.
    This week I decided to think about the expression “never say never”: http://collinesblog.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/never-say-never/


    • on the other hand, dear Colline, it can be a fine triumph, if you said NEVER – and if you can resist changing your statement, though everyone thought, you are forced by hell and all devils to do so…

    • hi fraNciNe – your Noses’ gallery made my day! maybe we like noses, because, if we stare at a nose, she can’t stare back, the nose even doesn’t know, that we are staring. the noses are blind. we see them, but they don’t see us, they are walking like the blinds in deep darkness – but we forget, that they already smelled and noticed us as well – but our eyes don’t know how…
