209th edition of CURVED RADIO PODCAST UP

16:08:15 We're lost in music in the 209th edition of Curved Radio!

I'm guest host on the 209th edition:

Tracks included work by Loene Carmen, Peter Head, Holiday Sidewinder & Josh 


“...stark country-soul and shimmering blues ...a direct line to the heart that showcases her glorious voice“
No Depression
‘Loene Carmen sits in a magical, rarefied space, somewhere between Tom Waits and Dolly Parton...’
Australian Stage
The spareness of the sound has an authenticity, sincerity and purity of purpose that harks back to the likes of Woody Guthrie. This is folk music. Or country, real country ... With characteristic grace and eloquence, LC reaches the parts other songwriters can’t touch.... I put her on the same pedestal as Kris Kristofferson, Tom T., or Merle Haggard." Something You Said

The present

Not a line one can put a mark on









easily described


I keep the fire burning.  Fan the flames & tell of things transforming

Acts of improbabilities
Acts of opportunism
A decisive dance of daring
Of the undutiful
A collection plate of profferings

Rage
fury
fight still igniting discontent

Of the gold and glitterings
Of the want to be better thans

Forgettings of
We'll abide with thees
Of climbing roses

Where does it lead?

A leash on the heart on the path of wisdom?

FROG!

Dear fellow readers and bloggers.  Apologies that I don't get a chance to visit here often enough. I do think of you and hope all is well in your world.

As I'm mainly concentrating on my music 'ARTERIAL FLOW' links as follows; my focus keeps returning there and there are only so many hours in a day but one of my intentions is to attempt to type up some of my writing at least daily!  No mean feat!  I've always written but I'm not published but am looking for outlets but the main focus is still my music.  I'll share some new tracks and links with you all on the post after this!  In the meantime, here is a wee poem written some time back which I've just edited today!  I hope you enjoy FROG! (I hope to find an image to follow)


FROG!


Frog uses her hands to grip hold of something.

Frog leap frogs to her destination.

Frog is smiling.

Frog knows how to sit very  still and be in the moment.
