It’s so important to life on this planet, for everyone that we recognize how destructive and harmful it is to keep killing life at such an unsustainable rates. Humans have to stop the greed and insane resource robbery, it’s cruel and illogical.
Why do I like participating in the world of music. I love that it is a way of participating with others in a creative process.
Music helps me express my feelings, and gives me hope that I am not alone in my feelings, and also to maybe help others who may have experienced some of the same feelings.
There is a whole world of commercialization of music and while it is important to be supported if it is your main way of making a living, I don’t think it is important to meet commercial expectations, or approval, because not everyone’s feelings are limited to being commercially appealing or entertaining.
I have written 5 or 6 songs relative to my experiences in life, and for me, it helped me deal with painful emotions, and difficult feelings of grief.
Lessons learned in life give me inspiration in song writing as well.
I am looking forward to becoming more technically skilled, I am taking lessons in guitar with a very talented musician, Allan Jossul, thru Long and McQuade in Courtenay BC. In my first lesson I have learned some really good techniques(basic but amazing ones actually) and look forward to more.
A song about being happy in the moment.
This has taken me years to publish as a video, as I work full time and pretty much just have myself to make things happen. A friend helped me out with this, took the video for me, down at the beautiful Tsolum River on a rainy, and sunny day. Sometimes you can draw out something sweet from something very bitter.
I wrote this song to resolve my feelings about being very unhappy with myself and someone else. Writing music helps to make you feel better when your feelings are not pleasant.
It’s breezy, chilly, fresh, and stunning at the Beach. Seagulls pick up clams and drop them from high up, to try to break them open. Eagles keep an eagle eye out on all proceedings. The wind blows cold air across the sand, and the trees seem to bend and turn away.
A beautiful scruffy looking baby eagle watching me watching him.
