Getting Through the Summer?

Well its been a year of difference for all of us. I have enjoyed the last 2 months plus with the creativity required to help me execute my craft…

When a damsel sits in her tower, she’s aware of where she sits

Its a place for wonder ponder and a place for renewing pits

Holding ‘dear’ the things that matter as she ponders out to view

Holding on to summer of madness and for holding feelings true

Like Rapunzle holds in capativity, no greater test can come abound

For the prison is not of visual, however of the what can’t be found

The wonder for Beautiful is flying, on a magic carpet high

For it is God that surely graced us, so we won’t even question why?

Know that haven sits before you, weaving on a laden stool

Knowing that life offers madness and some are drowning in the pool

Swim for shore and know that Graces will not wash you out to sea

When the tides are less-a-asking, with those eyes is where you’ll be.

(getting through the dark nights)

Don’t Give Up On Yourself

T’was six years ago when I encountered the injury that would change my life forever and here I stand still learning to deal with it.

Life often throws us curve balls and we work hard to bend to avoid impact (gm quote) however, sometimes, we are just not subtle enough. We can work to heal ourselves by simply encouraging others and hoping that they will find solace in any understanding of having been in relation… this can have great affect if application is right.

So for all those of you who are still learning to cope with your life changing injuries and may still be having difficulty in finding support through comprehension, I send you hugs of motivation to try and get you back on some target that may help you to recognise how wonderful you are as a person created to add something to the world.

Built with purpose you are worthy of awarding yourself any love that you feel you may not be receiving externally, for that is also a key to your recovery. Created by The Most High #TheMostHigh you have a mission in life, even if you have not quite sussed the end game; so DON’T GIVE UP ON YOURSELF – use your life skill to reconnect with yourself and find a way to put something into practise. Now remember you haven’t go to eat that cake at once, so work to take smaller bites – start with something small, for a job well done is better than no job done at all.

Hugs of motivation to you,

I NEED TO HEAR: Recording

So you know I don’t take myself too serious right and I doubt that will change – I love my sense of humour.

So some of you know I have been giving a second (or third of fourth as the case may be) chance at keeping my feet in the musical pool. I am loving working on my stuff and loving the development in the ability to create. When I look back at how I could only simply record songs onto a tape cassette to have record of the years of songwriting, wise move to, for now I find myself actually learning how to play some of those songs on my guitar… man, the journey to get to here, was never clear cut.

So I have just had to invest in my third pair of decent headphones. I am a little robust with them, that is for sure, for there is work to be done and I do have a timetable to adhere to, my lovely pink ones (in a new state) can be found on my #instagram page, however I have managed to break those too, so that the ear pads don’t actually sit on my ears, causing me to have to hold them in; life is hard enough as it is without me creating extra work for myself – LOL.

So just like every hard-grafting musician who works through the ranks, I am sacrificing a meal or two to ensure I take steps to help me execute my job that little bit easier, for everyone has a cost and there is a price to pay. Also to say I am loving the flow of songs coming out the #playpen right now. My Siamese mind and I look like we may well be doing more projects together, and the consolation is if you ever get to see us in performance, you won’t have to venture far. Huh?
