Булыжник Петя

Булыжник Петя

На выходных я открыла двери своей студии для молодых талантов – соседские мальчишки, по 10 лет от роду, записывали у меня свою легендарную песню Pete The Pebble (Булыжник Петя) 😁 У этой песни есть интересная история. Основатель дуэта Ангус скучал во время карантина, когда школы закрылись на два месяца. Он бродил по парку и увидел…

Spring is here!

I know spring is here when I am walking along a narrow path in my little town, my mind is sunk in a thousand thoughts that seizing my attention to surroundings, and then a subtle wisp of sweet scent seeps through the thicket of my busy mind and gently pulls me out of my oblivion.…

Confession

Confession Painting: John Nieman I MADE A MISTAKE. It happened 2 years ago when I set a goal to release my next album “properly” according to the music industry standards. And there’s nothing wrong with that except I made a promise to myself that I won’t record and release another album until I get myself educated…

Self-Isolation

Self-Isolation

We’ve been in a self-isolation mode for the last three weeks.  Right now I am actually enjoying our self-isolation period.  This might sound strange but I feel more connected to the outside world than ever. The reason?

Happy rebel

I’ve been ticking off lots of boxes, being busy. I could be proud of myself for being so productive. Instead, I felt void spreading inside me. It was time to stop and review. This morning while everyone was asleep, I had a date with Me, a one-on-one meeting. We climbed high to see the big…

Songwriting Challenge: The Warrior 🏹

Songwriting Challenge: The Warrior 🏹

It’s been two weeks of my Singing Songwriting Challenge. Well… It’s been a CHALLENGE. It’s been tough. The challenge was not in the singing or songwriting itself, but in the BATTLE against all the odds and different commitments that kept me away from what I love and supposed to be doing.  It takes time to…

Mountain

Let me share with you one of my proud moments of 2018. 😊 Last year I took a one month course to improve my songwriting in English. During this course, I was forced to sit down and focus on writing on a certain topic as an exercise without worrying what comes out. When I started spending time…

The Tree

Walking in the forest is truly rejuvenating. Blessed quietness interrupted only by a pleasant chirp and the sound of twigs crackling that comes from beneath my feet eases my mind. I stroke a large tree trunk with my palm feeling its rough texture. I open my arms wide and embrace the trunk sensing the warm…

Rescuing butterflies…

This morning I stepped out of the lifts and saw a pretty butterfly sitting on the wall. I said: “Oh you, poor thing, You spent all night locked in this tiny corridor. Come here I’ll get you out of here.” To my surprise she climbed my finger and happily sat there till I brought her back…
