Movies & Film and Imagination

Good morning to you:-) I sit here in the frosty morn and look out onto peace, yet am saddened by the news of suffering I hear. I want you to know my prayers are with you. That is for sure. Seems the ebb and flow of life brings us to great heights as well the forces of good and evil dance a dance of time. For me the news is good news this day. We have completed and copy written a new movie script...

Distant Bells

The night lingered, rubbing its eyes slowly to wake. The early morning quiet was as a pause in a melody. The sheets warm from sleep and a gentle cool breeze blew past my face. The smell of the fresh coffee, brewed and warm caused my senses to awaken. "Stay a moment" I thought and feel. As if dancing the air swirled its contrast of cool misty morning to the warmth around me. As if bells in the...

The Grass on the Other side

He thought it must be better She too perhaps the weather Climb that ladder, Put on a sweater I see their grass is greener Perhaps the latter So claw and clamber Climb and crawl To get into the greener stall But one small boy He looked around Into his yard And on the ground New flowers blooming In full abound!

Cradle’s Lightly Swing

What pain is this ? That taint and pull A heart-throb loving, a branch that's full? Emotion swirls to guile of story Give altered sight Delude the path to glory? Rest in the strength Give peace to heart Peirced truth like arrow Find peace my heart.

A 4-Wheel Drive Adventure !

It was a cloudy day mixed with moments of sunshine. Sitting with coffee and feeling the urge to curl up with a good book I began thinking of appropriating out of the ordinary. "Lets go get some photos somewhere fun!" I said. Half wishing I would just mellow out and relax. Off we went, packed our gear, water and outfits and away we went. It wasn't an easy road, by any means, up and down really...

#ClearVision The Best of Zest Vol I

Good morning! Wow! Today it is snowing once again! It's really cozy I must say! Great for making music! When I wrote Clearvision, it was at a time when I felt incredibly confused. I had been through a very bad relationship. One that was full of lies. It did take me a bit of time to realize how much I was being lied too. It felt as if my world had turned upside down.  I felt incredibly confused...

#Colors Best of Zest Vol.II

Good morning! Today is really a beautiful day! I love the fresh fall air mixed into the warm sun. So invigorating and full of a new season anticipation. :-) When we created "Colors", Michael was single at the time. He wrote a great deal of 'Renaissance' love poems at that time. Ray and I thought these lyrics were brilliant. We had our band practise and the guys left. I sat down at the piano and...

#Anxiety The Best of Zest vol. I

Good morning! Yesterday a storm passed through. Such a mighty wind, large drops of rain, lovely rain; both fierce and vigorous. It was a day to stay tucked in and warm and let the storm pass. That's how the last week has been. Full of personal dynamics and challenges, but today the ground renewed with the aftermath of moisture, looks as if nothing had passed by. And underneath the ground lie the...

#One Act Play

Good evening! Today went well. Intentional. I am learning how to... yes, dream... but also act! Action requires intent. Intentional movement forward.

When I think of "One Act Play" I am reminded of the band and our...

Deeper Than Hell The Best of Zest Vol. I

Good afternoon to you! Although the wind is up and it is a cooler day than the "record beating heat" of yesterday, still the murky smoke lingers in our air and patchy blue sky. Fires seeming to feel it is their time not Summer Time:-) When I wrote Deeper Than Hell it was at a very tumultuous time in my life. I had been through a devastating relationship break-up. One that caused me to lose...

Diamond Dust

She sat in her hammock and drew a deep breath He laid in the corner with all his regrets Why look you so weary your story all set Believe you a lie and see what you get What?

Sailboats Best of Zest Vol. II

Good morning to you! One evening in the fall the band got together and we recorded Sailboats. I wrote this song and actually it has a tricky timing that Michael was trying to come into.

When it came to his...

Good evening! I just put my guitar down and feel so full of joy this day as it has been one of those days that restore you from the inside to the outside!

In My Darkness Zorobabel

In My Darkness came to me one evening. I was in a very destructive relationship. One that was so painful that your heart becomes numb. It was a moment of despair. What was meant to be love was only a relationship that created pain. It felt as if the whole world had become dark. So dark that I felt myself sinking into a deep depression. I feel that it is in these times that truth can surface as...

Michael had written this poem and I turned it into a song. Ray added his magic sounds as we all...

Rest- Zorobabel

Good morning! When I wrote Rest I felt the need to express the incredible discovery that "It's Okay". Being human is okay. Peace is hard to find and something we all crave. Peace from the inside of us.  Peace has to come from a truth that our insides know to be. That is the foundation to the lyrics that I wrote for Rest. Peace from within. Freedom to choose. It is a special thing that we have as...

Oceans To Wild Winds

It seemed as if the boat would turn Those waves of ore and wild winds swirl The ups and downs and bellowed cries Of sea legged sailors You? or I? Perhaps the ship should find its shore Away from all the dangered horror Would raze or topple into cold The freeze...the chill...the loveless born "Ai! Nayy!" The captain cries with glee! "Onward Ho! Who me..To flee?" Nay so for now the shore...did...

Melody and the Wall

There they were, the two of them walking gently on. The path unknown and the weather ominous. "Which way to go?" Melody asked her long time friend, Bel. "You know, Melody, I was sure it was this way..but look a wall..." Bel said thoughtfully. "Yes, I see it myself and so high it be". They stood there, and looked up for what seemed as a very long look. Then Bel said, "Touch it Melody". She looked...

Cozy the Day

Good day to you! As I am getting ready to immerse myself into some new music I wanted to say how very grateful I am for all of these gifts of creating.

The small beloved :-)

Grey sighed the clouds as the sky opened it's eyes to a new day. All grey I thought. Patches of snow lay hardened on the frozen grass, as if to cling to their coming demise. In between the white formed new.Those patches of mingled green and yellow that were slowly but surely rising from the earth. I went out to experience this grey day. "The walk would do me good", I thought, and moved out into...

In the Physical

Good morning! As I get my exercise clothes on to start my day I am also thinking of the word physical existence or real or concrete. In this world of virtual reality..it is something I am thinking on. I realized in school that all studies seem to flow together.  Tied at the roots so to say.   Real or reality would to me then always show itself....if one is watching. False reality, artificial...

After the anticipation of Christmas comes the pause of time past and times to come. I feel it like a wave that has hit the shore and retreated to the cycle it plays.

Even In the Laden Snow

In Poppies Feild

The brokenness of life is made raw.This is a hidden pain just beneath the surface for so many. What should be the...

Through Hazey Colored Eyes

Good morning! I have been thinking of how the path one follows can lead  into disruptions. Nothing conjured up or expected but still it comes. Seemingly it throws off ones rhythm, but I am learning that it directs  if one lets the wind move.  Smoke may fill ones eyes for a moment but still the path is clear. It does feel like riding the waves and not loosing site of the destination. I suppose...

Through Smoke and Fire

This morning I headed off to the Sally Ann to play and sing. It was a very smoke-filled sky and I wondered if it was so safe to go out into.

I was so impressed with them all so warm and cheery they were. I sat down to the piano to...

For anything based on a lie will not...

We ended up on a gravelly road...(me car..me car...) but finally got back onto some great pavement and wandered off to a road never travelled before only to discover some really beautiful scenery...

#Clearvision The Best of Zest Vol. I

Hello! Good afternoon! As I look out onto a clouded view of the sky I am thinking how easy it is to lose one's vision;  perspective in things. How easily we can alter our perspective from happy to sad..! When I wrote Clearvision, I was in University. I was working very hard to move forward and forget a very troubled time I had just come through. I think I found a piano somewhere and just sat...

PS. Baby Blue!

After I wrote the song Baby Blue, the people who were experiencing some troubles had a listening ear,  and through understanding and some changes they made a great move forward and are really working together and have become so much the stronger for it all.  Crisis doesn't always mean the end but can become the beginning of good things to come, a change in the right direction. Life has ways of...

Baby Blue!

Good beautiful evening! I want you to know that we have uploaded an MP3 of one of my new tunes:-) It is called " Baby Blue". I wanted to be able to share it with you. We will make a video for it soon. This song came to me as I was confronted with a very difficult life crisis. Not my own but someone I love dearly. Of course songwriters bring out their pain or joy by music. I played the piano and...

Maple in Flavour

...and the magnificence of the tree, grew steadily, its leaves forming new and graceful branches. One looked around the green emerging beauty and wondered at its sculpture and story. It's sameness yet newness emerging with the sense and comfort that only comes through times own measure.

Wild Rose

Who does water, fill your cup? Who tends to weed Who fills you up? But still doth open, bloom of divine Sweet scent of you And only thine.

#Colors 3:52

Good beautiful evening! I hope your day went really well! I have to say it's a really beautiful time of year and all of the sunshine leaves you smiling! Today I was in town working on a project when we ran into our former drummer of The Best of Zest vol. 1&2. We haven't seen much of each other lately. Life gets like that and band members have seen a great deal of one another for a long period...

Thoroughfare

Pathways find an ebb and flow Sometimes struggle, is what we know To fumble, plunge The path to go To find our way The ebb and flow

On the Verge

Good afternoon! As I anticipate all these great ideas coming to bloom I know that the ground work is just that...work! Then the magic happens! I realize on my journey that it is the journey that is important. To find the good in each day and relish it. To not look back but keep on moving forwards;  eventually it all makes sense. It all has a rhythm and reason and fits into the Universal puzzle...

Happy MOther’s Day!!

I remember her, busy in the kitchen or busy at her desk working..or spending time with my Dad,..or fighting a headache. My Mom. Sensitive, behind the scenes artist. My Mom wrote music and poetry and sang so beautifully but who knew? She was too nervous to sing in front of a crowd, too sensitive for that. But my Mom is brilliant and full of wisdom. Thank YOU MOM for the music you have passed onto...

A Musical Evening!

Good evening to you! I just finished working on music with an artist that is very talented. It is interesting how paths cross and meet and the storms inbetween..Like a paper airplane flying in the wind that meets an undercurrent or two. There is definitely a mystery to music. My friend has a story, and I hope that his pages are now written in the black not red. The very thing he loved almost...

They made an impression

There they were, he with his limp and her with her speech troubles and crooked grin. Simple people, sometimes he pushed her in her wheel chair, sometimes she walked with a difficulty. There they were, always one with the other. Grey hair speckled  the tops of their heads like a crown on top jeweling two hearty grins. He had never learned to read or write, he told me, he used his memory, came...

#By The Fire #10 Zorobabel

I came about writing By the Fire at a time when my world was turned upside down and totally uncertain. It was a time of pain and struggle. That's when you get songs like this. They come to you like a source of comfort, like a moment from the Divine. I knew that in spite of my personal world events that I was "taken care of". That inner peace and comfort that comes to us when all else is uncertain...
