This blog has been sleepy this week. My apologies. I've been in my head a lot this week, reading books and exploring different sounds. Last Monday, I fell in love with Bob Marley's music. Growing up near the beach in Florida, I thought Bob Marley was a bit cliche', so I avoided ever becoming a hard core fan. What a shame that is. Bob Marley is the perfect soundtrack to the 100 degree Southern California weather we are currently experiencing. Listening to him while I ponder the coming school year's peace related theme makes the work even better. He just makes everything feel happy.
I also started reading a book called Lennon Revealed about John Lennon.
Started learning how to play "Peace Train," by Cat Stevens, on the piano.
Spent a lot of time thinking about the connection between life and music. Didn't realize anything too revolutionary yet. Just this: listening and singing music about peace makes me feel peaceful. Pretty obvious, but what if I only listened to and sang songs about peace? I wonder what that would be like. Hmmm. Maybe a new idea for the new school year? I'll keep you posted.
