Like Ice-cream dipped in Trees

Good morning :-) As the sun creeps slowly down the white-capped tree tops it reminds me that this day is moving on and tomorrow is soon approaching! Yes a new year full of wonder and adventure. Anticipation, like the sound of the ice cream truck coming up the road, or a scary movie as the tempo in the tune increases....ahh yes, but still a world of new creations to discover and explore! So before...

A Little bit of Rock

Good afternoon :-) I hope your Christmas Season is faring well for you . Last night we recorded a song raw.  It felt good to get that one done.  I took the lyrics from a friend in Africa and created a tune to his rhythm of words. At first I thought, I don't know about the delivery of this song, but it went really easily and just made me want to keep on recording.  So we will keep working on...

Through hazy Skies of Soft Blue Eyes

Snow capped trees like wonderland Quiet skies walk empty hand All the hush of nature's peace I walk and see from soft blue skies Still further go The snowy trail A whisper from A tree's snow fall And there before my eyes do see A gentle colour like the sea Moves slowly into skies all blue Creates a painting, something true Of orange, peach and flowing cream My eyes have never seen It softly...

In Small Glows the Embers Bright!

Good morning! In the hustle and bustle of this Christmas Season, I have discovered that joy is found for me in keeping in time with the rhythm of life. What I mean is, I have found that "the flow" of life, is gentle. I know, not always, but if I just enjoy this time, not rush, rush, rush through the season, I can really find the joy and not hurry past it ! I think too that all this rushing and...

First Fruits

One day a farmer planted himself a great lot of seeds. He hummed while he worked. "Hmmmm" The days moved on in the sunlit skies and the birds began to gather to branches first growth.  Little tiny leaves , small and insignificant began to grow. The farmer hummed some more. "Hmmmm". The leaves and fruit grew gently as the seeds emerged into trees! "Oh what do we have here! "The passerby...

The Brave.

As the night tucks us in, I wanted to let you know that I will be singing my new song tomorrow at a School Assembly.

Mortie and Mertle

Mortie was sipping his latte' in the sun one day. His eyes glazed over Mertle as she busily cleaned. Suddenly Mortie shouted to Mertle bending over to pick up a fallen towel , "I'm leaving you Mertle! I want a change!" With that Mortie put his new, clean coffee cup on the counter and walked out. Mortie was in for adventure! All the world at his command. He took all the credit cards he could find...

It feels like butterflies

Good evening! Are you still up? Don't you think that there are definately seasons to life. To journies and destinies, where ever they may lead. Lately it feels like butterflies, the music I mean. Like a new excitement in my heart and I just want to play! I guess that's the gift at work and why a musician would spend many long hours alone with their instruments of song. It is really something you...

Good afternoon! Wow, such a beautiful day and only half over!! To each new season it takes a bit of change and adjustment, but it is all in the learning, and my curiousity cannot be quenched.

The Case of the Six Eyed Tree

It was a lovely evening. Calm air, skies painted with a brush of pink and grey as the sun waved goodnight. The dogs were happy to jump and play and walk into the night breeze.
