Jolly Holidayssss

Good afternoon to YOU! I hope you are finding your pace in this month of busy and merry making! All of the sparkling lights and festive music and the feeling one gets when they share goods and treats with loved ones is a special time for sure. That said, sometimes the Holiday rush and family tree full of memories stirs up old sensitivites and echoes creeks in the floors of family life. Perhaps...

See YOU See Me!

The room was lined with wood paneling and rock work walls. A cozy affair that made one feel like staying for a while. We all gathered there, for something. Each one of us carrying our hope in our hands. The neighborly venue offered food, wine, and friends. The old piano sitting in a lonely spot was moved onto the stage. "Dust it off!" They chimed as the wheels turned the wooden music machine in...

The Core of Music

Good morning! Lately, I have heard some new music that has been created using mostly technology. It was good! Very creative! That said the muse of music has special value that is what really makes music stand out and reach us to the core. That inner voice, that transcends this world into farther dimensions beyond what we can even begin to see. The music that reaches our soul and comes from the...

Oh so Softly Blow…

It was the night, my pillow fair So soft and warm and I cuddled there When oh so softly, in the dark! A wind blew snowflakes It's no lark!

Sailing on the Wind

Good evening! As I am getting ready for a gig tomorrow I am sorting through my tunes. I had a few in mind but as the day changes in it's challenges I too feel like singing from a different experience. I was on the plane the other day and we hit tons of turbulence. Now I don't like flying at it's best, so for me this was not comfortable. However, I calmed myself with an old song I wrote years ago...

Thinks me Thinks….

Good morning to YOU! I just wanted to say hello to you! To love art is to be consumed in the moments life gives one to take the time to drink it in. I know that we all busy people and for some of us it takes a great deal to have the opportunity to share art with others. As I am continuing upon this journey, I realize it is easy to miss the turn off sometimes.... I did so recently, and thought to...

The Rhythm of the Dance!

The journey thus far has embraced many ups and downs and that is life in its algorithms...we learn to adapt and go with the hills and valleys and find the dance along the way! Maybe as the poet states, 'the high road'. The road less traveled is interesting as it was referring to the joy in the journey. To find our way through this life to the one to come and experience life at its fullness! I am...

Raspberry Rich

I was walking on a path it seemed so calm at the moment. I felt the breeze of the sleepy day and wondered about the rest of my walk. I can see the sun-lite branches, I can feel the wind on my face, who can change these. I pick up a crumbled raspberry leave and blow softly. I feel its pieces fly into the air. I let it breathe it's own life, not my making. I breathe. I want to take the path, I...

A Song in the Night

It was one of those nights...up at 2:00 trying to get to sleep. I guess I had a lot on my mind. I wandered through the house and saw my guitar propped up all nice and proper, waiting for some attention. I could feel my spirit relax at the sight of it. I picked up my faithful friend and sat down in the dark. A small night light flickered it's steady light in all but darkness. I took in the night...

Every Little Drop

Good morning! Today the rain falls gently, sometimes rather forcefully as the water finds the lowest common ground. It is alright I think to myself, as the grass is ever greener and my plants drink in the liquid gold. But I know that my friends all around the world have troubles with flooding, with drought, with earthquakes and I am in sorrow for them. I know these are the events in life that...

Bird of Paradise

Good morning! I hope that you are well:-) Have you ever watched the Bird of Paradise do his/her dance on a limb? And have you ever seen their amazing 'outfits'! You would think they were on a stage of a million viewers the way they strut their stuff and put on a good show! But no, they are in the most remote area of the tropics. A place that takes some getting too for one to see the birds! I...

Through the Window!

"Chirp! Chirp!" I heard as I looked out my window and saw a bird looking out the window of the tool shed right back at me. He couldn't escape! The window looked like the way out but alas! Glass! "Ohhh the poor thing" I thought and went outside to free the little bird. I opened the door widely and stepped in. I picked up some wooden chop sticks and held them out gently to the frightened bird....

The Unseen Seen

Though it might not all be certain A sign, a hope, beyond the curtain Questions looming large or small And round and round the circle goes Tis rocky and the clouds loom low Tis steep and so the earth below Where air and challenge leave to thin And boulders weight the weary chin Press on for love is bound to win Oh love the depths beyond, within.
