Songs of Magnificence
Its been quite some time since I wrote a post – so much has happened in the past many months. The Australian bushfires that took the lives of many people, more than 1500 homes and a guess-timate of a staggering 1.25 billion native animals, and displaced 1000’s of people and their businesses and whole towns turned to ashes. And if that wasn’t enough suffering, we then suffered (with the rest of the world) a full lockdown with CoVid-19, millions losing their livelihoods, dreams dashed, innovation and community spirit rallying, all this amongst additional awareness raising of ‘Black Lives Matter‘ rallies that ironically then caused further lockdown in the state of Victoria. Its been a huge time for everyone.
I personally had three house moves in five months directly due to these events – life turned upside down for a while; and I lost all ‘traction’ with my video-business-card film business, instead, teaching ESL (English to 2nd language learners) online, and praying daily, for financial respite. Just beginning again, to gain a little movement forward in life again. Phew, tough times!
But through all this trauma and change, music has persisted and was singularly the most stable and healing part of my life this year.
I’ve uploaded a few of my favourite recordings for your pleasure – I do hope you enjoy these – please add your comments underneath this post – Blessings, stay safe, and do good works each day in your lives.
