Mystiqueros special song

maybe this small cloth needs a bit of colour to cheer things up

Jimmy Davis' Lonely

not that I'm feeling lonely, far from it, it's just such a beautiful song matching the beauty of this landscape with a black dog in it

tidying, cleaning, sewing, seeing, finding small beings caught up in cobwebs & cloth

just look at those eyes.....
wagging his tail and trying to reach for the moon

it's that time of year: the urge to clean out the mess in my studio is upon me! probably because I'll be spending a lot more time indoors than on the porch; so in between cloth-collage, I'm sorting sifting vacuuming chucking out bringing order drinking cups of coffee & tea to keep me going....hopefully soon the dust will have settled for another year (or two)

three-lobe-beggar-tick seeds, tandzaad = toothseed, now I see why (original post here)

again find self mesmerized by those eyes; he's dead alas and has lost a few legs, but still worth holding on to for a while....

westerly wind

'it's only rain' 

last night the westerly winds blew us, the husband and self, across the highways, along small winding roads, past many a roundabout to a small town called Nuenen, where we ended up in Arianne and Bart's house; together with thirty odd guests we enjoyed Walt Wilkins & the Mystiqueros first (living-room)concert of their Dutch 2014 tour!
thank you Liz for pointing me in their direction; despite never having met any of them before, it was like coming home, in fact it was such a wonderful adventure, we hope to repeat this amazing experience very soon.....

so Jimmy, Walt, Bill & Bart: as we had such a great time first time 'round, we'll be seeing you all next week in Giessen-Oudekerk for another performance!

Bart de Win, musical magician

alas I failed to record the sound, but it's still a moveable feast

to hear what their music sounds like check out you tube/spotify etc plus their site, because they're worth it -

latest cd, more info on their website 

physical journeys, travels of the mind, meetings in blogland, different ways of connecting, of finding a safe place for your heart and soul, dreams continue and I do what I can each and every day; this Small Journey is slowly gathering pace....
