Standing in the middle of the road on the busy Camden Road at rush hour, taking a photo of the sunset and a van with Camden got in the way!
and a little bit of video from the top deck of the 253 bus too.
SONG OF THE DAY Madness -One Step Beyond
This photo is really near where I used to be tape op in a recording studio next to where Suggs from Madness used to live, he would come in and borrow sugar. I still see him around, at my gym, having coffee in the cafe near my house…too long ago to go up and say ‘remember me?’ Oh and congratulations to me..this is my 400th post.
The trouble with resolutions and bucket lists and all that stuff is that you are fast forwarding into the future…I found a lovely post from a blog called zen habitswith some reminders to help you stay in the now, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying/vagueing out about the future. I have heard it a zillion times before, but it is something we all need to be constantly reminded of. Part of being in the present involves planning for something that has not happened yet. This is of course a valid and good thing to do. It is always good to picture the crop as you sow the seeds but then you have to water and nurture it for a while before it flowers. Also being in the present means perhaps that sowing the seeds happens today, not thinking about sowing the seeds and then missing it.
It is good to have goals, but most of a goal needs to have some connection with what you are doing today. Ultimately it is the practicetoday, the small steps of today that changes the quality of tomorrow. You need to write everyday or sing everyday, or knit, or dance or forgive everyday, embrace life everyday, count your lucky stars everyday to change the quality of your future. If you spend too much time projecting into the future, or dwelling on the past, life is missed.
I still cannot believe I have posted every day in 2011, but it is about taking each day as it comes with its disciplines and commitments to the small steps. I will have reached my goal tomorrow. It is all a bit strange coming to the end of the post-a-day 2011 challenge as I don’t feel that it is time for me to stop yet. Just because the date has arrived, I do not see the line in the sand, so I will carry on until it feels right to stop. I was going to have a big ceremony tomorrow, and still might, if I have the time in between the projects I have on the burner between now and then. Happy New Year

SONG OF THE DAY – SOWING THE SEEDS OF LOVE – Tears for Fears
Had a bit of a musical crush on the curly haired one called Roland….think I still do. This was a real epic song at the time it was released……tip of a hat to ELO and Beatles …but a great track for today…the new year is about sowing the seeds of love. Turn it up and sing along…”time to eat all your words, swallow your pride, open your eyes”
Pretty grim round here due to Gitika losing her mum and we are all very sad. Here is our new video that we did actually finish 2 months ago but been too raw to post. So now it’s posted everywhere in the crazy social media flurry you have to do, so sorry if you have […]
Hallo Beautiful People 5 years today our first album was released and we are still walking the freedom line. It is a cause for celebration. Thought you might like to hear the first mix of one of our newest batches of songs. It’s called “I Remember ( The Simple Things)” Have a Lovely Day .
Its nice and quiet round here..Some days no-one passes by at all. No slamming of car doors in the night, no-one trying to double park, or in their car with all the winders open talking to Aunt Maud about the state of their marriage. There is a lot to be said for days when no-one […]
