Several weeks ago a fellow blogger and I placed a trust in each other by linking our words and music together with Sonorous – (a post on Feb 23)
It was a gentle creative fit during a long cold late winter month.
Another blogger who enjoyed our collaboration suggested we do so again. We both agreed we would like that and soon afterwards I received a beautiful piece of music.
This was a piece that had been carefully taken care of by my new creative partner – 67painting.com for some time.
He bravely set his creation: his baby free . . .and placed him/ her trustingly into my hands. This was a privilege for me, as well as being something I had not done before.
Inspiration is a fickle thing, as we writers know and can sometimes go into hiding, so I cautioned that it may be days or weeks for me to find the voice the music so deserved.
I listened to the piece several times over a few days and started to sense how it made me feel. It is soft, peaceful and yet joyous too. I thought of small children and their glorious innocence that create smiles all around.
I recollected the first moments after the birth of my first born and it’s life changing energy.
And then- on a very long, hectic day that was choca bloc with activities, I was in a cafe for a sit down and a break and the words all flowed: and I was able to add another layer to the piece of art.
Here is the result of a creative collaboration on wordpress.
