I sat in our healing room. The dowsing rods, from The Pyramid Lady answering questions. Pointing to the Mac, then back to me. I like to check in with them now and again. I was planning to take a break from composing Earth Tree Healing music for a few months… to recharge, not that it tires me out. Clearly 2 weeks of the lurgy, weird dreams that come with it and a shot of Night Nurse and that…was my break.

There is intermittent beatboxing coughing in the house. Frankly I’m sick of hearing it now. (The joys of working on hospital wards and in an open plan office. Excellent virus exposure!) The cats are very much more needy of fuss, as are trying to make both mummies better. Rambo cat has been pouncing on me throughout the nights in bed. But I love him. Tipsy is Queen of the duvet hogging. I’m surprised I’ve not pee’d the bed, as she will not get off easily when she is lying on top of you. In a weakened state where even my toes hurt, moving about was just silly. I feel like I’ve been pummeled by a meat tenderiser. Even Pattie Pops honoured me with a duvet cuddle. Have had far worse, but still a week of feeling pretty ghastly, I could have done without. Wellness is returning slowly.

We’d taken a drive outdoors, had breakfast. Visited the tree planted in Arnot Hill Park for Sarah Louise Kay. Layed roses. She died a year ago suddenly, 26 years old. Ange’s business partner and co-founder of candles and magical herbal incense Fenix Flames

Ange layed a Pentagram of Roses around Sarah’s Tree

Then a trip to The Real Milk company for some veg, organic milk. Love it there. Donations box.

So spirit guides, powers that be. We’d cancelled a band rehearsal. Don’t want to spread it, nor am I up for drumming quite yet. I sat and though I potter about surrounded by musical things. Played some acoustic guitar – just to check me aching fingers still work. The compulsion to set up a mic was overwhelming. The seed of an idea to make my next recordings very natural acoustically, with an array of instruments had been dormant for a while. Germination time. This channelled.

Trees of Kyoto
Wooden Xylophone and Shaker
Handpan Drum

I’d bought the wooden xylophone from a stallholder whilst performing at Under The Castle festival 2019. The shaker from a stallholder in Portsmouth. The handpan drum – Massive Thank you Pia from Pagan Tribal Gathering.

Why Trees of Kyoto? It popped in my head. May be a past life, future life. It is something bigger that the vessel that I am that created this music. I totally respect it. Definitely want to visit as it looks beautiful in bloom.

My Music Altar

My music altar is attracting and honoring such wonderful vibrational energies and creativity. It brings reassurance, law of attraction, comfort and beautiful peaceful moments.

Salt Lamp

Salt lamps bring warmth the the dark nights of January 2020. Apart from the bathroom. They adorn each room. I love the glow. Great for Reiki and meditation practice.
