Happy Halloween – Secret Space

“SECRET SPACE”

Well… I can only say that nothing pleases me more these days to at least get 50% of my songs complete… kind of. During #lockdown the numbers have massed and to be able to bring some of them to life is a dream come true. The first song I had professionally produced was back in 2000 and as a kid I was in position too get my head anywhere near production. I couldn’t even play them on the piano, which we had situated in what we call ed the middle room; Man I loved that piano.

So here we are in 2021 and man has my pen been busy for the last 20 months. Its brings great joy to still be achieving and learning and I still have much I want to do.

Secret Space – taken from my forthcoming collection of self-penned songs – this is a review into my world as an artist ( not a performer as often termed myself when performing other’s works) THIS IS ME…THIS IS IT = THIS IS GERI MINELLI

saying with her best friend #gericouk “LIKE IT OR NOT THIS IS MY SLOT” #SiameseMinds

PLEASE ENJOY THIS RENDITION OF THE SONG AND THE VIDEO = I hope I will be able to perform them all LIVE one day.

Honey… I’m Home

Wow wee wow!!! It feels so good to be back up to the larger font (lol) I have missed y’all . My days… life for the last 8 months has been such a test on my resilience. Well its a good job #GOD made me amazingly strong.

So utilising my time the best I could under the circumstance, I have manage to really put some effort into my productions, although you wouldn’t believe the limitations. I was also glad to be able to express myself in my songwriting and even when tested by the monopoly, I hang onto the believe, that you do it your way however, there is only one Minelli way. LOL #songwriting

So although I gained, I lost something major along the way. I haven’t found the courage to talk about it yet and standing as a ‘proposed ambassador’ does not really bode well in our community of music, so I will simply keep ploughing-my-field and pray that the crop will bring me ‘fruit’.

WALK WITH ME – I have a channel called Growing with GOG and I know that if not for Him I would be stuck somewhere else right now. The funny thing is when I began OPERATION FOCUS this year, I knew it was a continuation on THE VISION which was set to come to fruition in 2020. Well the world put stop to lots of things and for that I guess I was grateful for it allowed me to play catch up to some degree.

So here at the tail-end of 2021. Am I much further? Well I am grateful for the flow of songs that have poured out and how I am able to bring them to life. I am also grateful for the older songs that you have not heard yet and for the tweaks on others… the show will go on so with that I hope to have something together before too long. Wondering what to release next is hard for there is still much work to be done on my collections “Pedestrian Crossing” One and “Growing with God”. I am keen to make something for myself which should have been done a long time ago. So with what little I have now I am back on my purpose point to share the gifts that GOD gave me. – LIKE IT OR NOT, THIS IS MY SLOT.

BE POSITIVE ABOUT YOUR SELF AND SHINE LIKE THE STAR THAT YOU ARE

Counting Down

So I had the pleasure of seeing some of my family members for the first time in a year and it felt good to be (outdoors) with them. It just felt good to connect. I have a bit of the #HowardHughes syndrome, so don’t be coming to hug me just yet… R U #Crazeeeee 🤣. Yes I struggle a little with OCD 1&2 (obsessive creative disorder) and I realise this truly is serious for artists like me and I’m recognising why I can’t sit still 😱.

Well it’s JUNE and summertime truly begins, right? Man have we waited for these days to arrive. Lockdown is being faded out and the world is waiting to reunite. So has your outlook change??? Of course, for after my own personal years of lockdown, and then a national/global one, I so wanna pack my rucksack and get out to see the 🌍. We know that’s gonna have to wait, however the local park would be a treat right now 🤣.

So in recent months Operation Focus has had me knuckling down. I knew the deadline would pass as the challenges gatecrashed the party; but I am certainly growing from them.

Am I allowed to share I’m still growing? 😁. Over the last 12 months plus I have avoided commercial radio and I allowed myself to drift in and out of my kitchen, whistling to lyric free music and simply absorbing my environment of creative space. I have watched the songs of #love pour out of me, my definition of execution and production has found its sound. Of course it was always a little different for a woman of colour nonetheless I have to say, yeah I have #arrived lol.

I from time to time will share that this journey has not been straight forward and not as obvious as some would think, it’s I Bly taken me till May 21 to hear my keyboard thru my system whilst recording a live play… long story… nonetheless I pray that I will be able to bring you songs from my collections of “Growing with God” and “Pedestrian Crossing” in the nearer rather than distant future; my no-budget albums 🤪. I am loving back to basic sounds though and simply losing myself in expressing who I am as an artist with nothing more then hunger. When I grow up Dad… 😆.

So as I end this blog, the first in a while… still trying to locate my cyber device… I have to share that not only is my song “Countdown” cool but I am simply counting down to the day when we are free to roam and I can (with God’sBlessings) appear anywhere to perform once I have completed my work to enable me to say #IMadeThat 😘

Shine with the sun peops. #geriminellicountdown

S

A New March

What can I say? Another new month is here for us to savor, for it will pass as quickly as the previous two. OMD!!!

World! Spring is looming through the bushes and what a pleasant weekend we have just had to enable us to tip the essence of its beauty that lay before us.

We will see another year in some form of #lockdown and quite accepting if to enable us to fully heal. What a #blessing to still be here, eh?

So many in the world are you in the re-evaluation time? My most ‘beautiful caged falcon’ dropped an egg on my head last nite – I just have to say I Adore You lol – however I do warn it could get riskeh (risky) = the Artiste in me is crying to get out of Lockdown

OPEN UP YOUR WINDOW…UR A RAINBOW
