I love this time of year. So I’ve prepared a little Halloween Playlist for us all. X
A little bit of a longer playlist today to say thanks and make up for the days I have not been able to post.
Some of these are so wonderfully hypnotic they really take me away, somewhere, which I absolutely love.
That RY COODER and V.M.BHATT Gangees delta blues is simply other worldly. The combination of the two sounds sit together so exquisitely, that one might imagine they had always been kin.
A new almost trance like XAVIER RUDD song Fortune Teller. F**king brilliant and nice natural funky, bluesy sound.
Plus a few fabulous new ones to me like Take me back by JUCA CHAVES, Mon commandant by SAGES COMME DE LARGUE LA PEAU, Les Fleur by 4HERO and GAZ COMMMBES, with Walk the walk, with some of the most beautiful harmonies and musicianship.
And a wonderful version of Dazed and Confused by HANNAH WILLIAM With a voice worthy of the song and a great RAMSEY LEWIS number, that is SO funky it would be a crime not to move to it. ; )
What a lift. X
What do we think? Seems true to me.
I would also probably add, it’s ok if people don’t like you.. because not everyone has great taste. ; )
Why do people bother?
Don’t they know, the truth will out. Always.
Not the small white lies told by pure of heart. But the big and general scumbagery, done as easily as breathing In and out for some, and in a few, as often too.
It used to drive me absolutely crazy. My justiceometer fit to burst. Feeling like somehow it was my place to right that wrong, protect that innocent, put the bully in their place, quite that cowpaterey
Now I marvel at their ingenious machievelianesque machinations.
Admire their stupendous skills of spin.
Relish in the amusement of all they try.
I still fucking hate it, don’t get me wrong.
But now I realise, it is not my place to judge any of it, ever. It’s not up to me how they behave.
Not my job, as they say in Addlerian Phsycology.
My job is me and i barely feel able to steer that ship at times.
So the thought that I could ever have control over anothers feelings or take on responsibility for someone else’s behaviour, is a falasy
So now instead now I smile and let every tiny cadence of cunning wash right over me in amusement.
Because it is not my place to fight, nor worry, nor seek justice.
The Karma Police will do fine all by itself. Just as it has always done without me, since the beginning of time.
So instead I say smile.
I even had to stop my self laughing out loud the other day, by burying my face ìn my poncho,because it had become so ridiculous. All quite recently new to me, but left me feeling great instead of depleted, which has to be an improvement surely.
So to quote the mighty penguins of Madagascar….
“Just smile and wave boys. Smile and wave.“
Peace, Love and Light you Lovely Lot.
Life lesson 2, Keep going, This too will pass.
For all those going through hard times, keep going. Just remember, this too shall pass.
Like dark clouds in the sky, they won’t be there for ever.
Brighter skies will come, even if it takes a while, I promise.
Nothing stays the same.
Change is ironically perhaps life’s one true constant.
Head up, Keep strong, kind and most importantly keep love in your heart. Especially for yourself.
You are not alone.
Keep the faith, Because there is such beauty and blessings all around even in the dark corners of disasters.
Love and Light to all of you beautiful lot.
Here is a double length playlist to say thank you for all your kind comments, patience and amazing response. I am always touched and thrilled to hear from you.
Have a friggin awesome day, even if you have to be the one to make it so come hell or high water.
Try and give them all a go, even the ones that may not sound like “your kinda thang”
Or in fact those that I don’t even have a clue what they are about. All you have to do is give them a chance and then feel it.
Feel what I felt.
The glorious, Ya Sidi, with the most exquisite building crescendo of passion, that so does it for me.
Anyone speak Arabic? I would love to know what she is singing about with all that heart.
Also the divine emotion of DeVotchKa, I am so happy to have just found.
Starting slow and sleek, but rising from the ashes on a high with some of my favourite uplifting songs that always seem to works on me.
Plus everything in between in a right good old mix today.
Enjoy the journey. X
