Let’s get a little harder for the weekend, Ahem. Sun is out-ish, So let’s get a little Californian.

HELLO peeps and Welcome to all new comers all over the world, and I do mean ALL over.

Let’s reflect a sec on that shall we. Isn’t that in itself amazing. People from all over the world able to connect and share a moment in someone else’s life. A word, a comment, a gorgeous interaction with a like minded, lover of the same.

To join people together, to see how similar we all are. To feel for them, rejoices and explore the sumptuous nooks and crannies of each other’s cultures. ( a fab English phrase for getting right in to all the tricky bits, lol ) I do forget how many of those kind of phrases us Brits use.

Which in fact, as if by magic, is the perfect example of one of the joyous cultural little nuances that I love learning so much.

Don’t we life in amazing and exciting times.

So this is a little playlist as special thanks for the huge response, all those kind comments and the sweethearts who took the time to reach out and message me too.

It means the world to me, So this is for you.

Hope you like our Californianystyley today. None are meant as messages, lol eg “F🌻🌻ck California” in any way obvs they are just brilliant songs.

That Lead Zeppelin song is one of my favourites of theirs and I do believe actually makes my heart swell slightly when I listen to it, It’s so beautiful. A fab Vampire Weekend song, Gomez, The Dresden Dolls, The Presidents of the United States, Illyus and Barrientos and a Superb Propellerheads tune.

PEACE, LOVE AND LIGHT TO YOU ALL EVERYWHERE.

p.s As soon as I can’t find a way to make loads of money I will be back to my wanderlust ways and will be visiting you beautiful countries/states again.

Soon I hope. I do love California, miss you, it’s been too long.

Sky 1 playlist. Something to lay back and look up to. X

From the oh so fluffy to the daily work of Art’s that are each sunrise and sunset. I love them all. Each different, each spectacular in it’s own way.

Don’t forget to stop, breath and enjoy all of them. Nature’s not so little reminder to stop and be grateful for it all.

Another day under these breathtaking skies on our amazing planet. Lest we forget all the blessings we have. Nor forget to take care of it, as it does us.

Whenever I see any kind of sky, even the grey on grey I appreciate them all, as they all have their beauty. I make a point of trying to drink it all up and soak it all in, wherever I am.

Sometimes only fleetingly if I’m driving by, because no one wants a crash. But More often I would have to stop the car and capture that days, hours, or moments master piece. Feeling privileged to have been witness to it.

But if I am walking my Dog say, or out in nature ideally, I stop and use that as another chance to reconnect with myself and the universe. I sit or stand and just watch the sky go by. It is an amazing little meditation because all you need to do is take the time stop and look.

It always seems to work on me both calming and reinvigorating.

All that glorious colour and form, pattern and geometry. Both organic, abstract and angular at times, how could that not fill me with a sense of wonder, joy and gratitude.

A feeling of connection to it all. I know now for me at least, I need that because it seems to feed me and energise my life force in a way.

So I thought I’d give you a little mix to relax and watch the clouds go by to.

There are quite a few from THE ORB, because they are geniuses at understanding dynamics. I don’t know about you, but I like to be taken on a proper journey. Be surprised not expecting.

Sometimes I like to see if I can either cloud bust or cloud create. See if I can’t make them into the shapes I want. Ha ha ha.

Their first track on the mix, FIRST CONSIDER THE LILLIES is a meditation on a flying carpet all by itself. I just love that. Free holiday as I see it, even if it’s only for a few minutes. The further I am taken the better and more refreshing the voyage.

Also some more from the awesome NIGHTMARES ON WAX, with the most beautiful lyrics and message. I am listening to them a lot at the moment because I have only just found them, OH NO ! Lol it’s ok, we have them now, panic over.

To the sweetness of another ALI FARKA TOURE and the lovely ANGELICA, by LAMB, plus another double , sorry, from a previous playlist, GOLDEN CLOUDS added simply because it’s too great a song to not put on a Sky playlist and because I love it so much i can’t stop playing it.

And a beautiful Japanese word that I learnt today which sums this all up in a way. Where I want to live anyway.

Have a Beautiful day and Namaste you beautiful lot. X

Americana 1, Mini playlist for your pleasure.x

When I was little I was obsessed with America and everything American. Everytime we went we explored more and more I loved it more. Each state different, each holding its own unique treasures and I loved them all.

With undoubtedly some of THE MOST breathtaking Nature I have ever seen in my life anywhere on the planet. This music somehow reminds me of all that.

Such beautiful songs and what unbelievable voices.

God I wish I could sing, I would never stop. Music everywhere you go…You can’t ever forget your instrument or not have it when you wanted, Brilliant.

That WHITE BUFFALO song Wish it was true is excruciatingly good. It makes me feel every heart felt emotion laden note, with gorgeous deep lyrics.

Ir can bring a tear to my eye on the on a wrong day so I’ve added the WOOD BROTHERS song Sing about it on there again at the end so I don’t send anyone of crying and also because I love it so much I can’t get it out of my head since I found it. So much better to end on a high, don’t you think?

The last thing I want to do is make anyone cry, lol.

Plus more from the wonderful RAYLAND BAXTER, CAAMP and the Fantabulous JOHN PRINE ‘s Pretty good. Love that song.

Hope you can feel all them too, but not too much, ha ha.x

Have a beautiful day Big Hearts, even if you have to “make it so” to quote Star Trek. X

Tuesday Tunes, Chill 2, Mini playlist.

Such talent, all of them and such wonderful feeling songs. They all have a way of transporting me elsewhere and I love it when Art does that don’t you?

💜🏝💜

It’s Saturday isn’t it? Fancy a dance?

Have a great weekend you lovely thangs, keep those vibes high and never let the buggers get you down or lower that good energy.

Dont feel the cold, Be the thermostat. Change the way you look at them so they longer seem like twits.

Because in reality they are just doing them…like we are all just doing us. As best we can with what we know at the time.

Being you real selves to its fullest hopefully, obviously without hurting anyone or anthing on the way.

Truly the only power to change anyone is in changing ourselves.

Not that we need ANY fixing nor that we aren’t fantabulous just the way we are.

But I do believe wholeheartedly that when you stop learning, you stop living.

Peace, Love and Light to to and yours and thanks again for all the love
