New tunes New Opportunities!

Good morning! I hope all is well with you today! With all the various variables that we face I find it interesting where a path leads one! I played my new tunes for a live audience for the first time and it went over really well. The day started rather gloomy. The sky was unpredictable and a large storm came through. I wondered if the show would be cancelled or if anyone would even show up! Just about an hour before sound check the sky cleared and though a northern chill was throughout the air, the sun began to part the clouds.

As time went on the people began to show up. And so the show began.

I played my guitar and didn’t bring a piano. I thought  would keep it simple and so played songs that were mostly made for guitar. I used two guitars as they have differing sounds for the tunes!

The little children were all dancing around the front of the stage and smiling up at me . One guy who was intoxicated came right up under my stage and said some really sweet things to me and began to wave his arms to my songs. These things mean something to me, when people respond to the music, this gift for sharing!

There are some new possible opportunities ahead so I will keep you updated as we go!

Thank YOU for being here! YOU matter to me! Have a wonderful day!

lots of love and music!

for now, Rachel

From the thicket came a road….

It wasn’t as if it was obvious to the common eye.. Inching through a long series of brush and undertake, some swamp was bearing down upon the ankles of the one as they slowly ebbed through the seemingly blurred forest. It wasn’t expected, no, yet there it was…a well padded road.

🙂

Looking forward!

Have a beautiful day!

truly

Giggin!

Good beautiful afternoon! How have you been?? I have been working on my gig coming up tomorrow! Mostly new tunes so this is always with a bit of butterfly’s for sure! Also I painted a picture for my latest tune, it is called “Sea Dog” which is also the title of my latest song.

I woke up one night in the wee hours and this tune was going through my head. I was so tired and didn’t really want to get up and put it down, I usually do! But I just fell back to sleep. I woke up in the morning and !! The tune was still going through my head..so I got up and recorded what I was hearing. Singing it only. As I put the chords to this song together I realized that some of the chords are ones that I haven’t used before and are tricky to play!! Ha! So I have been practising these chords and playing this new tune..”Sea Dog”.

I really enjoy playing it! So I am starting my set with this tricky tune!! Ha!

The painting is also completed but I may not bring it to the concert but use it later with the song!

I hope all is well with you! I am really excited about some great new opportunity that may come into play! I’ll let you know about them if this is the case!

Lots of love and music to YOU!

for now,

Rachel 🙂

Imperfect Perfection

From fallen, broken, weak, laid low

From error written here below

From less, uneven, below the score

Perfection lives

Perfection’s beauty we adore

Perfection needs not

Perfect shores.

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 that makes the sensation exhilarating,  like a sailboat on the sea!

I wish you a wonderful day and looking forward to the future!

lots of love and music to YOU!

for now

Rachel 🙂
