Somethings cannot be explained and these interest me more than any fact or accepted truth called history. Education isn't a bad thing, I appreciate being able to read and write , but why aren't we taught about unseen or alternative history. Is there some conspiracy to cover up the truth,. But what is the truth what do solitary monks wish to find, what is enlightenment , maddness?!. George Orwell was eerily accurate with his novel 1984, to think diffrently is a crime or to even think at all , why are we bombarded with a lifestlye we can't afford, do we aspire to be celebrities.
Chapter One - Memories
A declaration of love from son to mother, the innocence of love and the question of mortality. Witnessing the loss of life and realising the precious moments that have passed by. The fight between wisdom and materialism , the future of a galaxy of stars. The individual looks towards love and the feeling of emptiness that stands before him, will he comprimise or stand by his inherited love.
Russian giant Gazprom has shipped the world's first offshore artic oil into europe. Greenpeace activists were there to protest along with thousands of others. It is show of corporate greed and shows how far these companies will go in there quest for black gold. Also the amazonian rainforest is being endlessly plundered with no conscience, much of the illegally obtained hardwood is used as garden decking and deforestation rose by 28% last year. Land is also converted to enormous farms and fires create this space.
It's been a tough year with the loss of my mum and recently my grandma. It puts everything into perspective and to quote from the great Pearl Jam song, 'Sirens' , "it's a fragile thing this life that we lead", sums it up for me at the moment. It's hard to understand this world during such times, you have to dig deep and find some purpose to go forward. I've been walking in the mountains and getting lost in the wild, it's soothing for the soul and enables my thought processes to settle.
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.
Just like to wish everyone a happy christmas and a happy new year and thanks for checking out my music and website. It's been a tough year for me personally with my mums struggle with cancer but life goes on, I wish for more happy memories. Also I give a thought to all the homeless people this xmas and all the refugees across Syria and worldwide. It's a sad planet but theres always some hope, all we can do is share and leave a healthy planet for future generations. In the new year on 6th January I will be releasing a new track called memories, until then stay safe and enjoy life . Peace.
It's been a tough few weeks, with my mum being ill with cancer and undergoing and operation, it puts things in perspective when you visit a cancer ward and inspires me how people find the strength and courage to fight such an awful disease. I've been writing several songs and processing my experiences over the last few months. Its hard to believe in god or any belief when you see such suffering, but I can understand how it helps some people. Hopely my mum will improve, just take it day by day and my thoughts are with anyone living with the illness.
Recently Greenpeace protesters aboard their ship artic sunrise were detained in Russia on ludicrous charges of piracy following a peaceful protest against oil drilling in the Russian artic. They were making a stand against exploitation of the artic, where companies such as Gazprom want to drill for oil, which is at the same time warming our world. What does this mean in the 21st century, what about future generations, will the act of protest be banned altogether.
