The Site owners of LTTL have kindly allowed me to review new music from South Africa .. standing by for your new music ๐Ÿ™‚

A New Writing Adventure Begins …

I am embarking on another new and exciting writing adventure. I will now be writing for Listening Through The Lens – a music site designed to promote and support roots music and performers โ€“ anything alt. country, bluegrass, soul, funk, gospel, Americana, folk or blues.

My first article will be posted this week and I will be sent (on an ongoing basis) new music to listen to and then review, how cool is that … The first review will be live by mid August, so settle back and enjoy this new journey in my ongoing quest … to just write.

Inspiration Comes Knocking

It came knocking and I opened the door and welcomed it with open arms. Inspiration brought friends, as I have been diving into the classics of late; Milton, Shelley, Poe, Goethe and then the music of Carl Orff and the more recent music of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan and The Alan Parsons Project. From this mish-mash, has come a torrent of thoughts, ideas, annotations and my ideas Journal is looking very busy and messy these past few days … ๐Ÿ™‚

I am putting the finishing touches to a few poems and I am for the first time in awhile excited about this new work that I am putting out, it is (IMO) quite a different style of writing …

So watch this space … it might be a busy few days/weeks that lie ahead, plus I have a few pressing editorial deadlines :O

goodreads Review

I don’t often post reviews of books that I read, but I have to post this link to my goodreads site, as this book will be placed alongside a few other books that will never leave my desk.

I am still flicking through the pages to read sections I have flagged … I find it such an inspiring read … cannot recommend it enough.

I need to state my conflict of interest upfront โ€“ I am a HUGE Springsteen fan ๐Ÿ™‚

Michael’s Review – Born to Run

I have been forced to place the iconic album image from the Born in the USA album … by you know who …. ๐Ÿ˜‰
