Also spend the morning, catching up with some of the unfinished blog posts, still a way to go.
Music and emotion have always been intertwined like may they have become someone elses words that tell the story better than sometimes we tell them ourselves.
When I look at this its the words, its the harmonies, the way they intertwine. the brazen communication, beauty of expression in all forms. I think I create that way.
Crowded House, Teenage Fanclub have been on the playlist this week, they are havens, where I can be, Let the words float over me like they are my own. Also Ed Sheeran and Andrea Bocelli, Andrea Bocelli at The Milan cathedral through lock down. Pearl fishers duet by Bizet.

The last tune is particularly poignant to me, the album Bandwagonesque that the last tune comes from was one of the first groups I worked with back in 1991. Working for creation Records bands, I did the lights and became friends with the band. I did their lights in 1991, in the space between the 1991 shows, a certain Brendan aO'hare the drummer of said band formed our own wee wains club as we were the youngest in the tour party, both naive and daft, we spent time together - I fell in love, it was a fleeting moment. Alcoholiday was a song for the times,. In 2016 after the split from my ex husband I always found sanctuary in the album, Brenda got in touch on FB, and I came over to Spain for a little respite for 4 days with the kids and I can remember sitting at the lake house listening to this, thinking this is all a bit strange and timing is so wrong. He was my first love, I had always held a flame. Music and life became entwined again. In February 2018 we got married. The love of my life. My guiding star., and with that I better pack and get back to the UK to my loves.
