May 2017 Gonzos Norwich "The was a really nice and chilled out afternoon, and Yve during her set held the audience absolutely rapt with a couple of incredible acapella songs, as well as providing a requested Jolene.  Yve dedicated the set to the recently passed Harvey Lewis Trusswell, and also Destiny Brown, currently battling kidney failure in Florida."

Dictation and recording ideas 

So I have been finding over the years that recording ideas in the moment is really useful for seedlings to grow along the line of creative output. Also to have a filing system of folders to store material and style.and formula. I lost my dicttion machine just over a month ago so all my ideas are npw being laid into an ipad unti lsuch time the dictation machine returns with all that lost material... Again I am finding also that my patience for songs to develop and not to not nurture up on the seed or idea over a period of a few weeks is also helpful to my writing. It is great to have ideas, like myself who has a million vibrant creative ideas and inspirations but does not always nurture and perevere eith to allow the whole song to manifest. I was told as a child I was a Dreamer and to be aware in adulthood to become a doer and balance the two. So my attitude at this stage in life is better in taking responsibility for the gift of creativity to manifest into something solid.and manageable for others to receive something good from. It Is my responsibility to balance how I manage my effort my time my courage my musical diplomacy into working for the greater good. If I wish to just release and enjoy the release for my own release then yes an open mic is cool. ( it doesnt end there but as an example, there are many layers to this) If I wish to give something to my community that really feels like the essence is there for the community and not to oneself only, then yes I am to work at my craft and support  the meaning and take it to the working public life. For it is then an exchange that is naturally worthy of its cause. Money is a form of exchsnge we have created. If I do not enjoy it At All, then it is not for me to utilise on a human level. One must tap into their own passion and bliss in order to serve the greater public. And yes some of that for me can be baking, cleaning, pushing a wheelbarrow, reading to an unwell person, holding a persons elbow to help keep them steady, offer to take a person to town so they can get to be where they need to help themselves themself etc etc etc and it all goes on to endless other simple or complex things that work in my flow of life for the better of all. There Is Give and receive and also a reminder that unless you give to yourself what you REALLY truthfully need in order to grow into a blissful and helpful human you are not in any useful place to give out to someone else. There is a balance in everything. And some yesses are harder than no's and vice versa. That is what makes you improve and grow as an adult. It is all a waking game!!! Just blurbing out loud again. And to the rock we go. We stand, we rock it, oversight oversee, lay over and feel the depth of still solid cold pressure to ensure a great lesson in working on a cold bed of nerves, to sit or squat with heel and raise a focus that plants the limbd into an ether of resistance and existence. To measure ones own worth against the rock. Or are you with the rock

Buckle and Boots Country Festival June 25 2017 

Todays breakfast. We stopped at a farm cafe on the left heafing away from Kings Lynn on the A17. The cafe was glorifying Normandie. And John Deer MotorHikes. And what looled like n old two stroke Triumph that WW travellers may use between spats. Brekkoe consist of Four rashers of bacon, a swab of creamy icecream whip, americano coffee, one waxy lyrical apple. The boys beefed out gratefull on baps and full english and cold Yorkie bars. So far so gratitude!

June 2015 Galway 

A 24 hour trip to Galway saw ms Mary B rambling from bar to bar, dejavuing over wolf brodge where the Spanish moss may have grown way back when. The most highlighted apparence was the willingness of our common folk joining in on song whilst walking past 60 year old penny whistle buskers... A trilogy of nuances that unmasked a wonderful territory of the ingrain melpdy that musoc holds for Galway folk and foteigners like my self on the look out for songwriter hubs to listen and play... Thank you Galway. Hostels are prevalent. Gratitude

River Ride Mississippi through the Eyes of Intuition developmental composition getting there.  Podcast

words Lyrics and music by #yvette mary barwood
Love that land of man
More Than anyone can know
Desperation hit our heart
Deeper than the well of the hungry soul
through  the eyes of intuition
All that we bind to us with
golden threads of steel
are just crystalized illusions
till we find as one were free
to take a ride through the mouth of the Mississippi
so I take a river ride
bound to ride
take that river wide
ah take the river ride / up through Mississippi
That land we love devoted
Make ocean move the wave
Speak of desolation to our heart
into every breath we take
through the eyes of intuition
All that we stand up for
pour rich soil onto bone
carrying the debt of man
hopes to set him free go home
so we/I take river a ride through the heart of the Mississippi
(c g am)
Take a River ride
bound by tide
Take that river ride
ah that river wide / heart of mississippi
Ahhhhh C G D Am C F Am
Where for the land
Can you take me far to come home
Shall I stop my eyes from running
To the cutting deep I’ll go
waiting life is over
Someday soon I ride to make
our freedom
Now I take that river ride

Blue Skies Friday 4th September 2015  

Willie Nelson popped up and so this is the song of the month... Today is the first day of learning this tune on the Yamaha classical APX-6N 

Blue skies smilin' at me
Nothin' but blue skies do I see
Blue birds singin' a song
Nothin' but blue skies from now on
