A salvo of magic into the world.

I’ve been sleeping terribly the last few days.
(or do I feel that way every day?)

I just realized why.
(and it’s a good reason why)

🙂

There are so many creative project ideas in my head.
(thatIwanttothrust a salvo of magic into the world!)

I want to do it all.  (I feel good)
and that makes me happy.

That’s why
I’ve been getting
terrible
sleep.

Let it fall.

October 6, 2015

This song is part of a final assignment I wrote, performed, and submitted for my Buddhism Psychology class.

Cutie-patooty succulents.

 

As the LA morning unfurls. I am realizing how much I needed this time away. to allow my body and mind to relax – and untangle.

When I would otherwise be sitting in an office. at a computer. emailing. saving files. editing. composing. reading. printing. Word-wrangling. (etc),

I will be writing
(like.
.with a pen).
in the sun. while my camera battery recharges.

I want to take photos of Alicia‘s plants! She has some cutie-patooty succulents you’d see on the Zoo Borns page if you slapped a pair of googly eyes on ’em. They are adorable.

You’ll see.

I’d been wanting to write about mental illness for a while. This is my first song on the topic.

Let go.

A short song. I remember writing this one in the middle of working on another song. It just couldn’t wait to be sung.

Werewolf.

I caught the nasty flu that was going around this past winter year; lost my voice and everything. Before it was gone completely, I had acquired a hoarse Punky Brewster texture. It was like I had a completely different voice to play with creatively. This is one of the covers I recorded – A cover of a Cat Power song.

What you feel.

Another one from the vault. And pre-professional mic.

Alone in love, again.

I’ve shared this song before. In an earlier post. shortly after I wrote it. The older post has the lyrics and a link to a draft – the original – recording of Alone in Love.

Here’s a more filled-out version I recorded after I had settled into the song more. so it sounds a little different than the original recording.

I love the fluidity of creativity. How little alterations drop into place the more you play with something. It’s a lovely lovely process. that never gets old.

 

Drive.

Another old skool lofi song I wrote. A little late-20’s angst, anyone?
