This is my video ‘plea’ for the crowdfunding site, gofundme.com.

I am looking to raise money for a trip to New York City to see Blackfield, one of my favorite bands whom I’ve never seen live, on May 1st and it’s coming up fast! It’s more than just a concert to me, though. It’s the last time we will see Steven Wilson, the man who saved my life, as a member of the band. I can usually be okay with the fact that I’m too broke to go to shows outside my city or state, and I know there are more important things to raise money for than a trip to see a concert, but my heart won’t let this one go.

Please watch the video to learn more about my story. :-)

10 Quotes About Love and Fear

~

Let’s face it, sometimes love can be scary. For a lot of us it is the unknown that makes us fearful. We worry about all of the things that could happen. What if our heart gets broken, what if things don’t work out, what if…? But some things are worth fighting to ensure that your fear does not cripple you. When it feels right, most often we find the courage.

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.” ~Ambrose Redmoon

In this case, love, or at the very least a chance at it, is more important than fear. A chance at happily ever after supersedes the reservations one might have. Particularly when you realize that by not letting go of fear and giving love a try, you have much more to lose by not taking a chance.

The Alarm - Permanence In Change (live)
from the live album Electric Folklore Live
(album version on Eye Of The Hurricane)


~~~


Daylight breaks on the streets of my life
Where no sun shines there bums refusal to die
In the shadows of heartache my dreams come alive
I’ve been searching for love to give meaning to life

Oh no, you make me feel real
Oh no, I’ve got you, you’ve got me
And that’s all we need
A reason to believe

Tonight my love will never die
Tonight I will lay down my life
Wherever we run, wherever we go
Tonight I will be yours and you will be mine

In the morning light hope comes on the dawn
A turning point after all these years
In the strength borne of hardship
I knew we’d make it through
So throw back your head babe
These dreams are coming true

Oh no, there’s blood sweat and tears now
Oh no, I’ve found you, you’ve found me
And that’s all we need a reason to believe

Tonight my love will never die
Tonight I will lay down my life
Wherever we run, wherever we go
Tonight I will be yours and you will be mine

Tonight we’ll go beyond these realms
Of where the sun goes down
We will be together
There is permanence in change
'Cause I found you you found me
And now we’ve found a reason to believe

Tonight our love will never die
Tonight I will lay down my life
Wherever we run, wherever we go
Tonight I will be yours and you will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine
You will be mine

Daylight breaks on the streets of my life
Where no sun shines there bums refusal to die…

Björk - Undo
from the album Vespertine

~~~


it’s not meant to be a strife
it’s not meant to be a struggle uphill

you’re trying too hard
surrender
give yourself in
you’re trying too hard :
you’re trying too hard

it’s not meant to be a strife
it’s not meant to be a struggle uphill
sweetly
to enjoy
it’s not meant to be a strife
it’s not meant to be a struggle uphill

it’s warmer now : l e a n into it
unfold in a generous way
surrender
s u r r e n d e r
undo

it’s not meant to be a strife
it’s not meant to be a struggle uphill

i’m praying
to be
in a generous mode
the kindness kind
the kindness kind
to share me
quietly ecstatic

it’s not meant to be a strife
it’s not meant to be a struggle uphill

u n d o

undo : if you’re bleeding
undo : if you’re sweating
undo : if you’re crying

Björk - Hidden Place
from the album Vespertine

~~~

through the warmthest cord of care
your love was sent to me
i’m not sure what to do with it
or where to put it

i’m so close to tears
and so close to
simply calling you up
and simply suggesting

we go to that hidden place
�
now, i have been slightly shy
but i can smell a pinch of hope
to almost have allowed once fingers
to stroke
the fingers i was given to touch with
but careful careful

there lies my passion hidden
there lies my love
i’ll hide it under a blanket
lull it to sleep

i’ll keep it in a hidden place

he’s
the beautifullest
fragilest
still strong
dark and divine
and the littleness of his movements
hides himself

he invents a charm
that makes him invisible
hides in the hair

can i hide there too?
hide in the hair of him
seek solace
s a n c t u a r y

in that hidden place

Leonardo’s Bride - Sonic
from the album Open Sesame

~~~

Sand in my eyes sand in my hair
Sand in the places I never knew
People are cruel when they want to be
They turn into monsters out of the sea

You’re not like all of the rest
You’re always smiling and waving

When I was younger I was sure
I could fly above it all
I remember looking down
But I’m so tied up to the ground now

You’re not like all of the rest
You’re always smiling and waving
Can I be sonic too?

Stars in my eyes stars in my hair
Stars and footprints in the air
Could I ever be that tall
Wrapped up in this mortal coil?

You’re not like all of the rest
You’re always smiling and waiving
Who catches you when you’re falling ?
Can I be sonic, too?

Björk - All Neon Like
from the album Homogenic

~~~


Not ‘til you halo all over me
I’ll come over
Not ‘til it shimmers ‘round your skull
I’ll be yours

I weave for you
The marvellous web
Glow in the dark threads
All neon like

The cocoon surrounds you
Embraces all
So you can sleep
Foetus-style

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you

The soft distortion
Fills you up
Nourish nourish
Your turtleheart

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you

Don’t get angry with yourself
Don’t, don’t get angry with yourself
I’ll heal you

With a razorblade
I’ll cut a slit open
And the luminous beam
Feeds you honey, heals you

Ryan Adams - Afraid Not Scared

~~~

Look at this ocean with everyone drowning
Idiots screaming and everyone sinking in slowly
We’re surrounded

In the yellow lights of the city, wasted as bodies
In bed with somebody, a touch away with nothing to do
We’re surrounded

And I’m really dying in here, I’m really dying in here
And I’m afraid, no, I’m scared

She started freezing, lungs are collapsing
The momentum is passing but the moment is eating us whole
We’re surrounded

Put the guns in the water, they’re turning to vodka
Triggering nothing, we’re sinking, the sea takes the ship

And I’m really dying in here, I’m really dying in here
And I’m afraid, I’m afraid, no, I’m scared, no, I’m scared
I’m just scared, just let me down

I’m getting really cold and I’m looking at you
You’re not moving
I’m getting really cold and I’m looking at you
You’re not moving
I’m getting really cold and I’m looking at you
You’re not moving

Earworms - 11th Feb 2014

So today I find that I have a couple earworms happening.
(For those unfamiliar with the term, these are songs that keep playing in your head.)
I thought I’d share them with all of you. :-)

Earlier this AM my earworm was one of my own songs in-the-works…

Ryan Adams - So Alive
from the album Rock N Roll

~~~

Today I watched the boats
Moving through the harbor
Walking on water, in your arms I’d stay
Forever if I could, forever if I may
Keep me in your thoughts, don’t disappear

I am on your side
And so alive
And so alive, it isn’t real

If this is how I feel
Then nothing now is true
And nothing now can ever be
Taken away from you

Sinking in the past
The things that shouldn’t last
Just put to bed and stand beside me
Stand beside me

Always on your side
I’m on your side
And so alive it isn’t real
I am on your side
And so alive
And so alive
And so alive

I am on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side
On your side
And so alive
And so alive
And so alive

Alive, alive
Alive, alive
Alive, alive
Alive

I am on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side
