Its been a while since my last post… and, I’ve been so, so busy. But, life has a funny way of giving us ‘breaks’ to follow other passions…. and so, I’d like to share with you, what I’ve been up to……
Read on to listen to music and see films (click on the blue Smule, youtube, vimeo links)…
The 48-Hour Film Project (Dubai, 2016) is on again – Dubai kicks off on Thursday 10th November 6:00pm for two crazy days of adrenaline rush to make a film from scratch – and, with rocks in my head, I’m in!
I have placed a new page on my official blog (selfies are a good record of one’s state of mind) – which contain some of the pictures I’ve taken during the making of musical and film achievements – a general history, some definite nostalgia – there are many pics missing from earlier years, which I’ll add when I find them – but… this was a bit of fun for me, and has brought back so much memory, struggle, triumph, sadness, joy and generally experiences that I’ve treasured — comments are welcome; and questions too, if you feel inspired.
I adore this song…. its just, beautiful – very elegant and such a sweet melody. I took the entire day and enjoyed singing… just simply recorded in my (unpadded) humble office – no sound equipment – just, Garage band and a set of headphones. I pray one day, I can record in a beautiful studio again…. if anyone listening/reading this post wants to give me that chance… don’t be shy – use the CONTACT form !

Backing track (these two wonderful musicians are hero’s in my book – revolutionizing the classically trained to do ‘out of the box’ work – they seriously rock – and I adore them – I hope my humble singing effort does justice to their beautiful work): 2CELLOS – Shape Of My Heart [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

Reblogging, as this is just the best product that more people need to know about – stress, cramps, tiredness, aches, pains…. poor diet, air/water/soil pollution, deficient foods… you are probably lacking Magnesium. See what health professionals have to say.

Such a wonderful visit two weeks back, to Muscat, Oman – a truly magnificent country, that is a green well-manicured oasis of abundance. I will go back there again, without a doubt – I just fell in love with the place!
Relax as you view the pictures… music to soothe the soul…
I went with a friend and we visited two places:
1. The Al Ain Museum. Just, MAGNIFICIENT.
One of the best museums I’ve ever been so fortunate to walk into… We explored for hours…. its a rich heritage, lovingly collated. The glass on the front of each of the displays was perfectly polished; and the Emirate lady at front reception, a caring guide/hostess. And I was very happy to have spent such quality time poring over all the amazing array of treasures.
Sung with love, this was an incredibly challenging song to nail down – I hope you will hear the vocal effort, despite the very humble office recording circumstances…. One day, I sincerely hope to work in a proper studio again. For now, I will keep working on perfecting, strengthening and challenging myself to stretch into new pieces. And, may the planet choose and decide upon, Love.

UPDATE Sunday 28th June, 2015: Fresh version… working on this, I am happier with this version (V6). Been a huge challenge, as the purity of note and the accuracy is vital to nail down.
