February Fineries

Hello  Fine Friends!

February is flying by and I have not quite met my goal of writing a song-a-day, but I am almost at 15 for the month (so far) and hoping for at least a couple more before month’s end.  With everything else keeping up with the day-to-day and life’s crazies I am pretty happy with what I have gotten done and hoping for some fun things to share soon!

I had my sixtieth birthday and celebrated by having a photo session with my grandkids, here are a couple cute pics that came of that-

( I noticed that in some emails the photos do not send, if you cannot see them and you want to, click over to the site and you can see them there)

 

On the clay side of life we have a woodfire going this week with the first batch of thirty large tiles we have commissioned for a hospital in Yuma, it will be exciting to see how those turn out.  I think this is Puff’s sixth firing, so good to see her getting fired and turning out beautiful artwork!

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your February (not much left!)  I will be trying to spin out a couple more tunes and looking forward to sharing with you at our next connection!!

I really mean this when I say I love you all and hope for peace and prosperity for every one of us!  Love is really all we have and I intend to nurture as much as I possibly can in the time I have here.    Hugs and more hugs!

February Fancies

Hello Friends, Family and Fans!!

I am having a fabulous February, writing songs like a mad-woman, I am already at 12 in progress.  This includes my first jazz tune, and my first co-written tune (also jazz), both of which I am very excited about.  So humbling to be amongst so many amazingly talented musicians and songwriters in the FAWM family.

I was so thrilled to see my numbers increase after that month of posting daily, I am going to put a free mp3  out for everyone on my blog list and to new signers up here.  I am working on recording something suitable and will plan on having it up here by the end of this month.

Working on a couple commissions in the clay world, some vases and bowls, I will share some of those in process soon, as I intend to get back to sharing more on a semi-daily basis.  Some livestreams for sure, I really love that interaction and excitement!  I have a hankering to do some more drawing and painting soon too, so who knows where that will lead.  Songwriting is definitely  commandeering most of my attention and focus until March 1, gotta take advantage of the energy!  In closing, I am going to share the lyrics to one of my new songs, this is Butterfingers 🙂

When my favorite coffee mug went crashing to the floor
In that split moment, my treasure was no more

Butterfingers  Butterfingers  Hang on tight if you can                                 Keep it close Mind yourself or it slips right through your hands

Time may feels its dragging    Especially when we’re young                              When….all of a sudden,   Our songs can feel unsung

Treasures Time Love and Dreams Here and gone so quick it seems

Love is Never Ending  So it feels at first                                                                          Suddenly you look to find that bubble it has burst

Butterfingers  Butterfingers  Hang on tight if you can                                 Keep it close Mind yourself or it slips right through your hands

Dreams can call your name Invade your every thought                   Suddenly they fade away Hard lessons we are taught

Butterfingers  Butterfingers  Hang on tight if you can                                 Keep it close Mind yourself or it slips right through your hands
