I know it has been a long time since I’ve posted something new. I’ve been busy writing songs for February Album Writing Month. It is an online songwriting challenge where participants must write fourteen songs in the twenty eight days of February. It is a challenge I have been participating in since 2010 & I find very inspiring.
Now that FAWM is over, I plan on getting back into blogging regularly here at Sacred Knowledge. But while you wait for my next post, check out my FAWM output from this year. Leave me a comment below & let me know what you think of the songs. You can also check out my entire catalogue of albums, live recordings & singles at my Bandcamp Site. Let me know what you think.
Until next time…
There is something about the beauty & the raw elemental power of a waterfall that captivates the soul. One of the most powerful – yet simple – experiences of my life was because of a waterfall.
There is a provincial park just fifteen minutes from my house & at this park there is a beautiful beach that is enjoyed all summer long by locals & tourists alike. The beach is located at the western end of a lake where the water flows into a series of waterfalls that are the source of a river. The geography is such that one can walk along the granite stones of the shore & out into the water right where the first waterfall starts. One can then sit down in the water (which is about waist deep) with one’s back to the waterfall. The rushing water cascades over one’s shoulders filling one’s body with an amazing energy – that raw elemental power of the waterfall.
I try to perform this little ritual at least once a summer (if not more often). It invigorates me & fills me with a gratitude for everything nature has to offer. It is beautiful, powerful & meaningful.
