lg/23052020

*Note: I’ve always been eclectic in my musical tastes. I was never a mad fan of anyone band or artist, although I did have favorites. I’ve given some links to a few of the original vinyl albums I have. I’ve been dragging these around for years. If you ever had a collection of these you know how heavy they are. I hope you enjoy them.

PS My posts will be limited as I broke a finger and it takes forever to peck with one finger.

Eugi’s Weekly Prompt “Cherish” – May 18, 2020

Always in My Heart (tanka)*

flesh nor blood were yours~

arms encircled like a womb~

your love carried me~

delivered me to this world~

life’s joys I might not have known

lg/10052020

*Note: My Mom had so much love to give and couldn’t have children. She always said how lucky she was to be chosen to be my Mom and her prayers were answered. When all the time I was the lucky one that He sent her to me. My Mom loved roses and had a garden full of them. This year my daughter honored both of us by planting two identical rose bushes in her own garden (you can see it’s bloom in Eye View #3), I was deeply moved by this gift of remembrance and love.

Dancing Freestyle (haiku)*

music sets the pace~

body free to choose it’s moves~

inner rhythm set free~

lg/27042020

*Note: the song choice is Defeat The Night (feat. Ashley Apollodor) [NCS Release]

Freestyle is a way of dancing in which the dancer improvises his/her moves on the spot, as he dances, instead of having them planned beforehand (ie choreography). … Not to be confused with All-Style dancing, in which different dance styles are mixed.

What is NCS? NoCopyrightSounds (NCS) is a British record label that releases royalty-free electronic dance music.[3] Starting as a YouTube channel,[4] it reached 1 million paid downloads in 2017.[5]. For more information about NCS click the link

*Note: Sometimes you find unique groups, when looking for other songs. That how I inadvertently came across this song Star Light Star-shine by Steam Powered Giraffe they certainly are different enjoy the video. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™

Steam Powered Giraffe (SPG) is an American steampunk musical comedy project formed in San Diego in 2008, self-described as “a musical act that combines robot pantomime, puppetry, ballet, comedy, projections, and music”.[2][3] Created and led by twins David Michael Bennett and Isabella “Bunny” Bennett, the act combines music and improvisational comedy on-stage, although their studio works focus almost solely on music.[4][5] You can learn more about then at this link https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steam_Powered_Giraffe

Matthew 28 ~ 5 The angel said to the women, β€œDo not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. 6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. 7 Then go quickly and tell his disciples: β€˜He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.’ Now I have told you.”
