Episode #29: Breathe and Realise – ( Song at 10:04)
This week in my blog and this podcast, Im drawing attention to – and celebrating – the sense of freedom that can be found by going out for a walk in nature.
Song number 442 from 1998, Breathe and Realise is about taking that Moment to realise how free we really are.
In Melbourne, the lockdown has been slightly changed – I’m now allowed to go….
Fishing. And fishing is my way of letting go of my worries, particularly when I do a cast with my rod. I cast my worries away to the horizon. I love just being beside the water. Catching a fish – or not – is completely by the way. This week I take you down to my local beach a couple of times, and to another local beach here in where I painted a plein air picture today.
I mention my buddy and co-songwriter on this episode again, this time as a poet. You can read his poems at paulspoeticramblings.wordpress.com
I picked up his book this week and really enjoyed it.
On my blog, petepascoe.wordpress.com, I have a link to poem he wrote ‘the fisherman’ . There’s a photo of me fishing which Paul took while he was writing the poem. In it, Paul really catches what my whole theme is about this week on both my blog post and this podcast.
Getting out and being free. Fishing may not be your thing. Perhaps you just like walking, sitting on the beach – all good.
You’ll get a few tips on songwriting again on this episode. Both the words and music.
It’s something I really love. The act of composing really sets me free, just about the same way it feels when I walk by the water.
I painted a seascape today, on the spot. Had another walk by the ocean later on, made a how to draw a duck playing piano video tonight and 5 other small duck cartoons… You can see the painting on my blog and the ducks on YouTube now.
I’m really enjoying how my weekly online content is all tying together. eg, Paul the poet played on the song this week.
Ok I hope you’re experiencing some sort of freedom and peace of mind. If you’d like some more of that, sit back and I’ll let you know how I found that freedom this week.
