Open Me

a sort of tantric song with incredibly tight harmonies sung over gregorian chanting

Music is eating me alive! And I'm loving every minute of it...

Sorry to be so quiet in here of late but I'm having a whirlwind romance with my first love, music. I have been so on fire lately in terms of singing, writing, collaborating, and talking that talk musicians talk to each other, that I haven't had much else on my mind. Sometimes I have trouble eating and sleeping! It's like when I was studying music decades ago and then even more so when I was singing professionally for a while. This time around I'm determined not to let it get to the point where… Continue

Creating music again... at last! :)

I woke up this morning feeling it was time to sing and create something musically again. It's been WAY too long since the last time. I've missed it terribly and I kept waiting for the 'right time'. Well, there isn't any right time except when it feels good. :)

Nudity in Mail Art - Call for Entries - Deadline: February 14, 2009

I chose Valentine's Day for the deadline for this call because I'm in a silly mood tonight. I am inviting everyone to send mail art on the theme of nudity. What does nudity represent for you? What kind of nudity are you comfortable with? What makes nudity sexual? What kind of nudity appeals to you? Have you made a nude self-portrait or been the subject of a nude work of art? What feelings does nudity create in you?

Be honest if you… Continue
