A little music...

Just a little something to listen to, to make up for not posting more map book pictures as I promised.  I will get to it, but the last few weeks have been very busy, emotionally and physically, with biggest munchkin graduating from primary school, getting ready for high school (she might be ready, but I'm definitely not!), school plays, school camps, last minute recording projects for my music course...and more!  I'm looking forward to the holidays.

Both of these songs were recorded at the Denmark campus of the Great Southern Institute of Technology.  I've had a wonderful year there, so will be back for more next year.

A poem written for the map book, which then became a little book, and then became a song.  Mythological inspiration of course.

And another one with mythological inspiration.  I found a book of short stories about Trickster characters in my local library.  In the introduction it warned that most cultures that have a Trickster in their folklore suggest the best way to avoid him (and occasionally her) causing chaos in your life, is to never, EVER draw his attention to yourself.  So I wrote a song about him!  This may well be the first happy sounding song I've ever written.  My awesome classmates provided my backing music...I just sang!

With a bit of luck, I will get some more map book pics up before Christmas.  But if not, please everyone have a safe and joyful holiday season.  I sincerely hope next year brings the world more joy than this year has of late.
