I was in conversation yesterday, and it made me realize that I haven't done what I love doing for a long time... that is, blog. And I'm not talking about blogging wedding photos, and the like. But just blogging, for the sake of blogging. Talking about life, what makes me laugh, cry, contemplate... You know, all the the things that make me...well, me.
So I thought today, since the internet is just CRAWLING (I can't get any slideshows or photos to load to my FTP, I thought it would be nice to steal a little away from the wedding scene and visit two things that I love almost as much as taking pretty pictures :)
(1) Music, and (2) Writing
The first is an old vocal recording I did of myself in 2004 when I JUST started taking vocal classes. I recorded it for the sole purpose of wanting to be able to look back and see how I had progressed vocally. I still sing to this day, so my voice has grown 5 years and sounds quite different from what you hear below, but its quite funny to hear! Mainly because I sound different now, and secondly because I didn't have any proper recording equipment back then (still don't actually haha!!) - the crackles and distortions in the higher notes are just awful! But hey, its good for laughs :)
Your heart is filled with pain,
Your mind cluttered with confusion.
Pieces of your life fall around you
Like raindrops in a storm.
The path you chose so long ago
Led you straight to hurt's door.
Now your weary feet struggle
To find the road back home,
Searching for the places
That love and beauty hide.
Temptations lie in wait all around,
Pulling at your every step,
Waiting for you to slide back
From the chosen, sought for, path.
Emptiness surrounds you,
Confusing your perceptions.
It is difficult to carry on.
I will do my best to fill your heart with joy,
To clear the cobwebs of confusion,
Help you find your purpose.
I'm good at catching pieces
And I can chase away a storm.
Let me walk your path beside you,
I've walked this road before.
You can lean on me when the weariness comes.
My shoulders are very strong.
I can't fight your battles,
Or chase away demons of the soul,
But I can lend you my strength
Until you find your own.
I will help you find the courage
To face each day anew.
I can't shorten the journey you must make,
The road is just as long as before.
But I can fill the emptiness
And help you reach your center,
The place where love and beauty hide.
Take my hand, be my friend,
Let me walk with you awhile.
Anyhow, I really need to run. I have a million things to look after today, people to chase, and a plane to catch so I hope to be back with some more personal musings and pretty pictures :) Hope you found this little tinker down memory lane as funny as I did!
Have a glorious day ahead! :)
