love and music can change the world
Recently I’ve been pretty sick with this
fucking terrible COVID-19 thing. My symptoms were fairly mild, and I’ve pulled through fairly quickly. One of the reasons I’ve recovered so fast is the support and love my friends have given me ~ that’s marvelous and it’s also helping now that I’m in lockdown.
This Jackie Wilson song is for them.
The Fred Astaire / Ginger Rogers clip goes brilliantly. And who ya gonna call…..? (You have to remember Ghostbusters to get the connection.)
Please listen with my thanks.
and she did it all backwards
in tall heels
she left her footprints in the sand ~ she left her love in my heart
and I dream of her
her touch her eyes her hair
the way she left footprints in the sand
as we walked along that quiet beach together
musical voice speaking of a future, her small soft hand
resting gently in mine
a perfect day lasts for eternity
in our memories
inner peace is true wisdom’s best reply
a silent sea
a solitary beach
love is within reach
what it would be to experience that numinous light
friends are the greatest treasure any man could wish for
It seems that I have contracted this horrible virus, and right now I feel like shit. But, with the help and support of my friends I know I will be better soon.
This song is for them.
true friends, now and forever
meditation is not black magic, meditation is a relationship with yourself
For this Sunday some meditative music for you. I have just discovered the band 2002, and they play some very cool tunes. Try and breathe peacefully.
Meditation is sometimes difficult for me, but walking by the sea takes me to a very special place within my spirit.
Please listen responsibly.
everyone needs love
nothing is more meaningful than surrendering to love
Some say that money makes the world go around. Looking at the world’s financial markets crashing, and loved ones dying, I’d say that it’s love that makes the world keep on turning.
Thinking of the things she’s said and the tone of her voice when she said them, what man could not be in love.
Please listen with care and affection.
I’d walk a thousand miles of track
just to see her smile.
older women dating younger men is about sex, not about love
she’s older, no lady
many boys have used her
and many still do
younger down on their luck
it isn’t ever love
it’s just a fast rough sex fuck
she gives it away
willingly, freely, rhythmically
one far off day
it will all haunt her memory
through bitter tears
she measures the men she sees
and still cries bitter tears
the desire of a man is for his woman
the desire of a woman is for the desire of her man
she loves him again
hot fires of adoration
friends now yet they
parted way back when
what happened then?
mistrust between them
love tried and denied
yet true love will always
find way to return to her
they say that true love conquers all
when she appeals to his desire
they are perfectly right
Sunday clears away the debris from the rest of the week
Something tells me that I should be posting more spiritual and inspirational music on Sundays than I’ve been doing thus far. Ergo, this seems to be quite spiritual to me.
Lisa Gerrard is the most famous Australian singer, musician, and composer I’ve never heard of ~ a musical polymath and Renaissance woman. Perhaps it’s time I listened to more of her work, on vinyl.
Please listen with reverence.
one man’s weed is another man’s wildflower
the doors of breath, seal with a righteous kiss
a dateless bargain to engrossing death
A winter midnight and the light was strange. A glow that cascades, softly falling from darkness, carefully arranging long shadows cast in deep silver blackness.
A castle dark, a fortress strong, and set in the tallest lonely tower a locked room holds and coldly embraces the lovers’ fatal final tryst.
we will never be set free from these chains upon our love until we embrace the moonlight
