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.

lightening

feel the words come

not just the ordinary
blah blah
but the flash of yes
that lights up your spine
and goes forth raw and real
 
the words that don’t give a crop
what others might think
that care deeply for tender and broken parts
that heals and holds the knowing
 
life has brought
the perfect storm of you
 
lightening
 
let your words pour forth

mud puddle now

its there
all around
the buzz of the creative.
will you stop a momentIMG_5062
and let it in?
 
breathing helps
but dont even try to do that
 
just rest into being
being here
watching feeling
touching the ground being
it’s the door in.
 
no trying
no assignment
no shoulds
no ‘ really ought to’
none of that
 
sit in the messy mud puddle
of this brilliance
called now.

wonder

wonder
at the tree tree1
it stands so tall
forever seemingly
so patient and strong,
but that is just its nature.
 
wonder
at the hummingbird
it’s only task to find nectar
it’s marvelous wings
it’s defiance of everything we know
this little bird
of peep and ruby throat
 
wonder at the blade of grass
one single spire to the sky
resilient and allowing
swaying in the slightest breeze
 
and wonder
wonder at you and me
we here
hands feet heart head
we breathe forth
into the only moment we have
 
full of fear and beauty
fun fluster and folly.
might we come to know
gratitude and wonder
as our best friends
along this tender trail we tread.

water be water

the day winds
like a river by
light and darknessScreenshot 2016-09-05 12.00.43
shadows and sun
 
the hours pass
into roar and huff,
buzz and sweetness
 
hello day brimming over
fortune and folly
foolery and fluff
 
the river
it rolls by
voracious and vixen
soft and subtle
all
 
let the water be water my friend
let it wind you down stream
inevitable as gravity is
to the god of your choosing.
 
 

possible

the wind howls sometimesIMG_6127
sometimes is calm
sometimes it rains
not much lately,
but when it does, the world changes.
even from day to night
the colors shift, our vision tries
we crawl inside or out
the world is constantly shifting and changing.
 
let us not take for granted
the mysteries that surround us
the shifts in perception that rule our lives
the layers or change and transformation
constantly circulating in our world
 
and hold the mystery in tender hands
that give life to possible.
