The Songs I’ll Sing

I’ve been writing a lot of songs lately.  Usually I have something rolling around my head when in a good silence.  But now that I’ve decided to finally buy a Ukulele, learn how to play it and find all those notes that are mentally fixed with some rather nice lyrics I’ve jotted down.  I have yet the means by which to play the song singing about my head, but this is what it looks like.  It’s title is The Songs I’ll Sing.

I suppose it’s all the time off.  But it’s been wonderful; I laugh.  This past year has been full of death, family and friends committing suicide, losing my mother, job, and unspoken losses and the surgery.  There has been a bit of despair.  But I can’t help but find the silver lining when life presses. It seems the harder the pressure the greater I rise to the occasion. Decades ago I was suicidal at one point and for some reason I suddenly kicked life back.  I have never had to look back from that moment.  I love life.  I love feeling, breathing and honestly stating the obvious.  I love LIFE. When I chew the bitter and the sweet things that come my way, I create art and music from the heart.  I am content.  So the world can bring it on, but I will continue to sooth it’s savage beast with a smile and a gentle drawing.

There you have a bit of Britt you probably didn’t know.
