Last week, I posted about sea glass and how it can serve as a reminder to slow down.
Some of you may not know this about me, but I’m also a singer/songwriter. It’s been a while since I’ve written anything new. However, with my health issues now solved, and having been thinking a lot lately about time and the choices we make surrounding it, a new song emerged while I was writing last week’s post.
I’m as eclectic as they come where songwriting is concerned. One day, whatever comes out of me will be 1920s jazz, and the next, it’ll be dark trance with an Arabic vibe or Latin Pop or a Country ballad.
This one surfaced as something I imagine would be sung a cappella, backed by a boys’ choir or maybe an African choir, and maybe with some electronic vocal treatment, a la Imogen Heap.
It’s called “Someday Soon.”
I thought I’d do something different this week and share it with you in some form. So, since I’ve had the recording equipment set up to work on the audiobook, I figured I’d take the opportunity to lay down a quick vocal-only track, without spending time to clean it up (so you’re getting it as close to “live” as possible, spit and all). I wish you could hear it as I hear it in my head, feel what I felt that prompted me to write it. Perhaps you will — or you’ll hear and feel it in the way that you alone are meant to hear and feel it right now.
