transformations


friends,

 

tonight is episode 726.

 

some songs from past and present,

+ some thoughts about

opportunity.

 

it's difficult at times

to be in the moment,

+ to see value in things

we'd rather weren't the case.

 

i'm thankful yr here,

+ hope you'll - join me.

 

the songs:

- i like to keep it low (don't even try, 2012)

- shutters (demo2, 2020)

- footprints (demo, 2020)

 

love,

russell

accepting it


friends,

 

episode 725 is a short one.

 

it's inspired by two more songs from 2012,

a new song as it evolves,

and thoughts about

desire,

suffering,

spirituality,

so on.

 

this - feels related.

 

the songs:

- edith in paris (don't even try, 2012)

- i can't stop my worrying (demo2, 2020)

- telegraph (don't even try, 2012)

 

thank you for being here,

i hope you'll - join me.

 

love,

russell

empty spaces


friends,

 

episode 723 is here!

 

it features two versions of a minor melody.

 

these're the lyrics i like a bit better:

 

empty spaces

 

consider it concluded

won't you let me go?

the endless, pointless, torture

so psychological

 

i read things slow dear,

and wonder,

my stories shift in place

at times they're wrong,

yes, tho they're gone

i'm still with you in ways

 

all this talk of moving forward

advice i can't take

chance brought me opportunity

then buried it in faith

 

<solo>

 

that's love i think,

staying open

to what we'll never find

the planets soar,

in orbits more

distant all the time

 

the songs:

- chicklet (demo, 2020)

- empty spaces (demo, 2020)

- another earth (don't even try, 2012)

 

i'm thankful yr here,

and hope you'll - join me.

 

love,

russell
