Up Early Again This Morning

Image
Since I was pulled out of bed at around 3AM, lots of misc paperwork was accomplished. It's amazing how much paperwork can accumulate when a person is running their own business. And....I don't have the luxury of a secretary!

I cannot believe that we are almost through November and are coming up on the holiday season. Music has a particular power at this time of year. Why else would every store be broadcasting Christmas music? So also I am experiencing the power of my own music during the transformational November and December months.



Be sure and read my blog of last week on Wisdom.....and may all of you have a holiday season filled with love, light and wisdom. Love to all.

Daily life in support of creativity

In early October I released an album of music called "Wisdom Enters The World In Love". Now my challenge is to live that music in the daily world of my life.

I am feeling into the title and what it means to me. If Wisdom is to enter my world, I must be open. All of the windows and doors of my inner and outer world are open wide to the newness that wisdom brings. She, Wisdom, is my support, rather than the limited beliefs of the 5 sensory world.

If Wisdom is to enter my world In Love, then love must be at the core of everything I speak or write. No ruminating from a space that is not love. Otherwise, I am split. There are two worlds for me: the world of my music especially as I perform and record, and the world of my daily life. When these are split, nothing works well. It is not a loving space for me or those around me.

This sounds esoteric, but it is extremely practical for the musician. It is very easy for me to become split when life presents challenge…

The life force of change

This photo was taken by me today as yet another cold front moves in to bring the change of seasons that is November. I was walking Retta in the rain this morning and saw the intense life force that is the color yellow in trees and in the leaves on the ground. Without the change from the warmth and direct light of summer into the cold and indirect light of Autumn, we would not have the gift of this yellow life. It is a symbol to me of my own life journey and my music: constantly changing.....emerging into newness.



This morning I am listening to the music of Emergence and am filled with wonder at how this music has captured the wisdom of nature. The music was written to celebrate Spring, but it fits today perfectly.

I am also thankful today for the technology that is available to me. The photos were snapped on my i-phone 5 which is capable of capturing the depth of life in nature. Then the photos can be immediately transferred to my mac, and I can write this blog and send i…
