Blog No.39: The story so far….


What’s been happenin’

BLOG NO.39 – IF YOU’D LIKE TO READ BLOG NO.38 FIRST, CLICK HERE, OR TO WATCH VLOG NO.1 CLICK HERE. If you’d like to read first why I wrote these 65 tracks, then click HERE to read that blog. (Blue text are external links, which will open in a new browser window.)

Just a short blg to say I’m trying my best to get the next full one done, which will be about my current four favourite female solo folk artists, but it now takes me a lot longer than usual. (Bloody hands!) I may get the VLOG NO.2 (video blog) out before it, but I’m going to have to be a little less tired to do that. (Bloody ME/CFS!) That will be Part 10 of the Close Encounter Of The Music Legend Kind, which will be about singing with the legends that are The Muppets on the Muppet Beach Party album, and being involved in recording the sitcom Dinosaurs‘ BIG SONGS album at Capitol Records in Los Angeles.

(I’ve included one of my own photos as the featured image, just to show I’ve been up to something. It a sunrise over St. Oswald’s church in Oswestry, Shropshire.)

Thanks so much for reading, and please, please, please do rate the blog (at the top) or leave a Comment, below. (Grovelling over.)

  1. A beautiful photo to mark the occasion of your plans. Mak your next blogs are ones to look forward to,and you do not have to do these unless you are ready. There’s not one blog I’ve not enjoyed, and often found my self singing along.

    Wonder what a puppeteer does, when the hands hurt, the back aches, neck and shoulders as well as the arms? You being also an idea man, will help you to be a great writer. Just got to work in timing with the Bloody Stuff.

    Surly it’s the same as I feel when I try to do what I used to do best. ‘Bloody, Hands’, this applies to me also.

    Imagine when I realized I could no longer perform or teach one of the arts I could do best and that my hands and my fingers were denying my brain, and felt like being sprained when I picked up one of my batons to do intricate finger maneuvers and such. I abused myself I guess with going the extra distance as some do when in the industry. I was getting old, Nooooo! When did that happen? Besides dance and choreography, I was a two baton champion juggler and even performed twirling, along side being in a dance role -on stage- in The Music Man, musical. Did many more musicals, but this one called for baton in the parade sequence.

    I taught this for many years in the states at the same time I taught dance, plus choreographed many shows. Learned both arts beginning at age 4. Amazing it was, and I could also juggle fire. (batons soaked in petrol) Was literally a kid size circus act -once upon a time- and performed in many places. Once set a fringe costume on fire; my mom was frantic.

    ‘Bloody Hands’ indeed. I’m Blessed they sometimes type and do not ache. So, believe me I understand what you feel and what it means to get these blogs out for us to read. Love Anne Terri

    1. It’s always good to hear from someone who really understands, and I know you do, Anne. You’re always so good at responding, and, considering your hands, I don’t know how you do it. I don’t just mean to me. I see how many people you directly respond to on Twitter, and it amazes me. Maybe that’s what you’re belief does for you. Maybe you’re just an incredibly giving lady. Thanks you, once again.
