the magic and the song

Thank you all for coming to the showcase yesterday- it was phenomenal.  Gawd. 18 people, all with their own amazing stories and expressions..we even had a hysterical and historical song moment about a guy’s failed relationship with a cake. Now really, life is NOT boring (thanks Bruce)!  We ended the evening doing a group singing along to honor Tom Petty- singing Free Falling. so cool. We will do this again, so stay tuned.

Meanwhile, I woke up and wrote 2 songs…I know, pretty crazy., a day in the life of a songwriter. At the bottom I’ll post the facebook live I did of the song- pretty funny–but hey, life is getting real-er and real-er. Glad to share the moments.

That being said, I am starting a new songwriting class in a few weeks locally–and also thinking of starting up another songwriting class online, so no excuses about distance.  It’s only a phone or computer away; using a group conference app- downright cool. The magic happens- in person, online…so, If you are wanting to write but not doing it, stuck in the doldrums, if you want a blast of support/enthusiasm/inspiration, etc, email me back…

Meanwhile, I’m taking off for San Diego next week; doing my coaching mastermind, and participating of this healing experience called IMX. that I told you about before.I want to make sure you got it—I still have free tickets because I’m in the mastermind, so if you are interested, check it out ASAP- it’s comin’ up- here’s the link—yes, it’s worth the trip to San Diego, where ever you are coming from.

Have an awesome weekend
and
blessings always.

later.

Yes and

The crack in the sidewalk
the turn of the trail
The twist of a tree limb
The topple of a dream

Life is not straight lines
As much as we beg

celebrate

this playful crooked
This constant turn and twist
This dance alive
this pivot and prod
This next wild yes

sunlight dancing on a shimmering leaf

donkey hat and all

Yes and

(what’s next?)

that one thing

This day
do one thing
that most important thing
that thing that you’ve
been putting off
that one thing
that will bring you closer
to that one big goal
that thrills you.
sheets to the wind
arms to the sky
call that person
write that song
say those words
shave that head
what is it…
What would that be for you right now?

dear sweet one

Dear sweet one
Have I told you yet
How precious you are to me?
How your very presence in my life

has burst me into song
flowed rivers of ryhme
Rainbows round every corner

Have I let you in

on the constant mundane sacredness I find
In that soul-stirring yes of your being
Just you being you?

How it brings me to my knees in wonder
under the sun filled blue

Seeing the dance of light
In every sparkling leaf

every reflection?

All In sheer remembrance
of that one drop
that
Annihilated

my reasonable mind.

how many angels?

I love the open door
of this day
wide
full of expectation
and no limit yes.
I love this moment of simple stillness
drawing me into the mother’s deep bosom
her constant and total nurturing
 
I give that to myself now
 
yes
big sigh into yes.
 
for this is all I got
 
like a million zillion angels
dancing on the head of a pin
so happy
I get it now.
