My new song visited is a reflection of my interest in history and ancient civilizations. Most people have heard of atlantis and today is regarded as a myth, there are many theories that say it was a very advanced civilization and was destroyed mysteriously about 11,000 years ago. After this three advanced cultures appeared, sumer, known as the “cradle of civilization”, egypt and the indus valley. The sumerians were the first known people to study the stars and develop the written word.

Hope everyone is keeping ok. If your reading this thankyou.Been a strange start to 2014 with my mum passing away on 11th january, it’s a great loss and my track memories is a tribute to her. It’s strange what tests confront you in life and love is the redeeming factor. My mum taught me to believe in love and stand by the discriminated and badly treated people. She instliied in me an empathy of other cultures from the native americans, to aboriginies to the palistine struggle, theres always a conscious struggle being fought, our mind is our own and nobody, NOBODY owns that.
Everyone dreams, but living in the modern world we have become dis-connected from there meaning and importance. With the constant rush of life, spritual thought is often excluded and the search inward is seen as a luxury, only available to monks and lost ancient cultures. For example the christian tradition recognises the importance of dreams, as christ himself gained strength from his dreams as he wandered for forty days and nights in the wilderness. Even satan kept a distance, as he dared not interupt the spritual trance.

As spring arrives in the vacuum to be…
A swallow on the wing, a bee in the sun
For the season has changed, spring has begun
A carpet of bluebells, a primrose yellow in the glade
An ancient oak tree opens it’s green cloak and the meadow awakes
A chiff chaff calls & the cuckoo arrives for a day
An orange tip passes me on the old country lane
For my ancestors saw the same seasonal change
It’s a wonder of delight and a song to remain
A passing of time, an orbit of magic & love
For it has no religion, or worship any god
It’s a gospel of cycles
From one age to the next
It’s a rebirth of life
It all connects
For spring is an egg, for spring is a seed
For everything follows…..this awakening…
