Spring is here in the UK and flying migrants are appearing in the sky. Over the last few days I’ve seen swallows, swifts, house martins and chiff chaffs, all arriving from africa. Flowers are also blossoming in the woodland such as blue bells, lesser celandine, wood anemone and common dog violet. The trees are also changing and beech , lime and sycamore are coming into leaf. The seasonal change has begun and everything is coming to life.
As the native american, Black Elk said life is a circle, like the seasons in nature. It’s hard to see where this circle is going, with climate change, war and poverty, will there be a positive change. From the slums of south america th the shanty towns of africa wheres the sharing of wealth and equality of life. Greed is the enemy, corporations control the day. From the cd you buy to the petrol you put in your car it’s a vicious circle. We’re all unknowingly contributing to the change in climate, it’s a trap of which it appears we have no escape.
Every week passes by and we adapt to our environment and process the information we consciously interact with. What’s important what’s to be discarded . My actions whether through writing a song or showing an act of kindness are my contribution to this circle of consciousness we all share , without pretension we’re all important to finding a postitive outcome for this. It’s easy to be consumed by fear and things we don’t understand, but I ve come to trust my instincts and believe good outweighs the bad. The refugee crisis , the instability of the Middle East, climate change…it’s hard to see a solution, but we must. In the uk , benefit claimants have become targets of the state, the vulnerable need support, so they can suprise us with acts of bravery and show life as test to be overcome and enjoyed. Governments are to serve the people not isolate and protect their future interest. So it’s 2016 and were divided by borders ,but in essence were all,wanting the same thing , a bright future for the children we love. So let’s be mature and responsible for future generations, I won’t be seduced by technology but use it as a tool to spread a positive message, if we all do this I believe love can change the world. We can only hope……
Sitting here listening to the cosmic rough riders album, enjoy the melodic sunshine, it occurs to me what an insignificant dot we are in the vastness of space. We are 149,600,000km from the sun, any more closer and we would not even be here. We are in a galaxy called the milkyway in which our solar system is located. It is made up of billions of stars and there millions of galaxies in the universe,mad is it not!
So here we are in the future, NASA sending Osiris Rex to a faraway comet…technology enabling future explorations to deep space…proxima centuri beware! And still we can’t reconcile our differences on this insignificant ball of rock. I try and write songs with a positive message and believe I’m quite well read, particularly searching for an alternative view (recommend John Hamers book ..The falsification of history and anything by Henry Makow and others). Climate change is no conspiracy, the evidence is there, but will the elite use it to continue there quest for absolute power(check out agenda 21). All musicians particularly in mainstream seem to be in on the game, I know it’s cynical but when immorality is spread through pop videos it’s hard to see the industry in a positive light (triangle of manifestation…becoming a bore). Of course there’s positives, Global Citizen for example and with activism comes empathy, which I believe can only be good for the world. So with my collection of new songs ready to record I hope to touch and connect, with the title being ‘Outside the outsiders’ it’s how I felt growing up and still do a little to this day, of being alienated and isolated from the so called popular and cool, but from this comes another perspective, an eternal gnostic reflection, that searches inside and finds love and comfort. Don’t worry about image, just create and be good to each other. That’s what I do…finding strength in music and nature…there constant and will always be there. Thanks for reading. Peace xx
Millions of people have seen objects in the sky, which they couldn’t explain. This series of stories coincides with the release of my new song , Top secret in a couple of weeks. * One of the first ufo sightings is featured on an egyptian papyrus more than 3,400 years old, which records the sightings of numerous brilliant round objects in the sky, witnessed by Pharoah Thutmose III, his army and his scribes. *
The search for the yeti is an on going quest for many scientists, zoologists and mountaineers.Some think it’s the ‘missing link’ in our evolution, but does it exist. Footprints have been found in the himalayas, the mountains of georgia and northwest america and canada. This half ape half man has many names including the yeti, the abominable snowman, bigfoot, the alma and sasquatch.
