I am buried, deep and hard in a bunch of beautiful work, and had no plans to post until next week.

But then, something INCREDIBLE happened.  Something that literally BLEW ME AWAY.  And I couldn’t help myself.  I HAD to share it…

…A little while ago, a friend of mine who had really connected with my album said, “I think I’m going to make a video for you”.  I remember thinking: ‘that’s nice’.  Then I forgot about it.

Cut to: 2 months later.  My friend sends me a text that simply reads:  ‘Video done, tell me what you think’.  I cued it up thinking that I’d watch a little of it, then get back to work.

5 mins later, I was sitting, staring into space.  Literally, stunned into silence.

If I had commissioned a video; if I had paid someone to make it; or even if I had make it myself; I don’t think I could have made it any better.

Do not misunderstand me.  It is not a slick pop video, made with super high tech, melt your face off equipment.  It is lo-fi, and gorgeous.  And perfect.  For me, it’s literally, perfect.

Would you like to see it? ;-)

What did you think?

And lastly, if you’d like to find out what I’m up to on a more day-to-day basis then here is my brain on Twitter:

  1. Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so
    many options out there that I’m completely confused .. Any
    tips? Appreciate it!


    1. Hey there,
      Thanks a lot for your kind words – that’s very sweet of you to say. ;-)
      I would try out the free version of wordpress if I were you. It’s what I use for this site.
      As for tips…I would just say, focus on making quality that has value for the people you will show it to. It sounds really basic, but, in my opinion it is the most important thing.
      Hope that helps, if you need anything else, you know where I am.
      Have a great day,
      – J


  2. First off … thanks for introducing me to your blog by liking one of my posts. Second … Wow! You have a new fan!!! LOL! The song itself has a a haunting yet beautiful style/tone to it (I actually replayed it twice 😊). You can feel your emotion in the song. I wish more artists “felt” their music. For me, it also has a spiritual aspect to it. 🙏

    “Where is the love I crave? … Love is a river … flows to the ocean … love is everywhere … never be lonely … never be fearful … love is everywhere.”


    1. Hey there, ;-)
      Thanks so much, I am really glad that you got something from it. Makes me happy.
      You are awesome.
