A Friend Of Mine Wrote A Soundtrack To My Book
Today I want to introduce you to some damn good songs that will never make it into the charts because they were just to promote my book.
Underrated Love songs
In these crazy and uncertain times, where face masks are the requirement (or at least highly recommended) to go out and isolation isn’t all self imposed now, in the horrors of the Covid-19 Pandemic squelching our semblance of peace and security by even just stopping by the grocery store—- my recommendation is something that may seem trivial but it can be cathartic: love songs.

Zen is a State of Mind; Music is a State of Action
I will be sincere; 2021 has proven to be just as a challenge as its predecessor. A strange mix of anxiety and anger stir inside my stomach as I cannot help but lose hope every time I leave my home and realise what is happening to my country. I have been a UK resident for just over 16 years now (I originate from Poland) and have endured my share of hardship in my life, simply for being born on the wrong side of the line in the sand. From school bullying, petty theft of toys, and a constant bombardment of racist remarks, to workplace racism, refusal of opportunities, wrongful pay, and the rise and aftermath of Brexit, I’ve endured my fair share of pain. Life has been nothing close to smooth, but I stood my ground, continued to challenge myself, and moved forward. Despite everything I have lived through, for the first time in my life I am truly petrified to live in the UK as this time, it’s no longer personal, but tyrannical.
Have you heard of Medidance?
2020 was the year. That year. A year that sounded as preposterous as it turned out to be. We were afraid to leave our houses, afraid to go to the supermarket, to see dear friends. And we were right to be, things were getting worse, and fast. We needed to protect ourselves, be safe. Stay home.
Music To (Not) Write To
Music is something I feel deep within my body. It isn't that I have some irresistible urge to break out into 'Free Bird' at the crack of dawn every morning or make a habit out of strumming 'Wonder Wall' on an acoustic guitar that materializes in my hands anytime college kids start drinking. I get absorbed by music, though. If I'm cleaning or cooking this isn't a problem. It's easy to throw shapes in an empty apartment while sweeping, even if that does mean I'll end up kicking at least one pile into oblivion in the process.
To the Beat: March 2021
If everyone is a product of this society, who will say the things that need to be said, and do the things that need to be done, without compromise? -Lauryn Hill

Vocal creators learn a lesson from Michael Jackson
Writing is an art form and those who create with the pen or the click of the keyboard are artists. There is much that we can glean from the life and death of entertainer Michael Joseph Jackson. In the movie, "The Jackson's an American Dream' there is a scene where an 18 year old Michael is talking with his mother Katherine. He tells her how the music just keeps coming to him, especially in the wee hours of the night. If you are a natural-born writer you have probably experienced story ideas coming to you at any point during a 24 hour day. If you are not where you can begin creating an article you can at least get it started. If you are not near your laptop you can used your cell phone to at least get the title and perhaps a few lines in print and work on it later.
A Spotify Playlist to Get Your Characters Naked
Music has the ability to set your skin on fire. There are songs that slam you against a wall and kiss you until your lips bruise; music that strips you down to your barest and most vulnerable self. A slow, yearning beat and a desperate voice have a way of smoldering you from the inside out.
Writing While Moving
I’m am slightly in awe of the way we are becoming a TV watching proletariat. Though that’s a discussion for another time. I decided to see if I could do a blog bost as I walked and this is the result. I hope my edits manage to make it readable
Natures Memories ~B O Ḵ Ë
Striking gold while scrolling Instagram is exactly the feeling I had when finding B O Ḵ Ë. Immediately I sent his artistry to all the music heads I know. When B O Ḵ Ë sent me an album release announcement, I stopped what I was doing, right-that-second knowing I was about to embark on a wonderful journey of sound.
Moondays on the Mothership
In ancient times, the day began at sundown, as dusk and dawn are but a reflection of the other. At this moment in my life, I am enjoying the realignment with the ancient ways in all that I do. My life only sees creation and divination between visitors, the quasars and I speak much.
The Science Behind MDMA and Electronic Dance Music
Eight years ago, my would-be husband and I were sitting at a bar in the outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada. We were casually talking about EDM, electronic dance music, and an upcoming music festival we wanted to attend. Out of nowhere, the bartender cut into our conversation with,
