The most wonderful things are always around me, and despite my occasional rainy weather, the fact that I am imagining life to be something that it is not quite, and the minor suffering caused because of this, I notice every single day that I am blessed. We all are. As my creativity flows into the world, the energy I put in is multiplied with each new heart that it touches. Isn't that brilliant? It is the same for us all. Express yourselves in the most diverse and beautiful ways!
Let me see about a poem,
To capture my moment in verse,
Some pounding rhythm from somewhere between my crown and my naked feet repeats,
Like a systematic knocking upon the door of tomorrow with longing and pleasant beats,
Soft and luscious sweet singing of the cavity that holds the very essence of ourselves,
The cubicle, vessel, sovereign attitude of flesh that drives itself into sunset after sunset,
I can hear it. Within the sounds of everything else, it belongs to me, the mountain and the trees,
It is ours, and it is wonderful. Let me bring it to you as I bring you these lines,
Close your eyes and breath it in, the stuff of life, the you that hides, say hello to yourself.
Workwise, how am I doing? If you are reading this you may well have previously read poetry of mine elsewhere, or seen one of my novels or CD albums. Some of you perhaps have seen my digital art. Let's see, there is a new book arriving shortly, going by the name of Whispers of Spirit. It is poetry, including a one person play called Soliloquy of a Lunatic. I went for a Caretaker esque feel, where Pinter cast three men in one room for the whole performance. Mine is shorter, and less dramatic, however it consists of one person speaking to their self. Continuation of The Trident of The Eternal Child is ongoing. The third and final story in the trilogy will be finished at some point in the not so far off future. There are lots of other stories going on in my plans and dreams which will also find their way into print over the next decade or three plus.
Musically, I am writing my new self titled album. The third one in the line of albums with RBC on the front. Experiment A and MirrorFace are things of the past for now. I never say never unless I mean never and I never said a thing.
My new album though, it is going well. I aim to put down some of my more well known tracks of my later performing years, maybe an older one or two as well. I also am going really deep into the musical realms of emotional language, the sound the the heart and the gut, the sound of your aches and pains the sounds of your elation. I aim to capture a least a prickle of each. Maybe I will manage it, but all i know is that every time I make a CD it feels better than the last to me, and that is what I aim for again. Each time the order gets taller! My goodness me. Very happy that Beyond The Frozen Ocean has received so much attention on YouTube and Amazon. A real blessing.
I feel that the art side of my work has been neglected recently and I aim to make a stand. My plan is to produce unique pieces for sale online using services such as Etsy. I'm looking forward to that challenge.
It is a great pleasure also to be sent on regular assignments by the local Sheffield magazine Now Then. Recently, I have become a regular contributor to their music review section. Over time, I would like to expand my contribution range to creative writing too, however one thing at a time sounds about right to me.
Upon the moment of waking, before you think your first thought of the day, you are free.
