There is one thing that is a real bonus to being a part of the entertainment industry and living in Los Angeles at this time of year. A plethora of options to see and hear the creations of others in networking style events. Last night I got to see a movie called The King’s Speech. New movie that stars Colin Firth. That man has to be one of the best actors right now. He is on fire with the last several movies he’s been in and has proved that he can carry a leading role. Do yourself a favor and see this movie. It’s not action and adventure, and it’s a bit old school in it’s story and editing – a nice departure from the usual short attention span stuff of today.
I had an aha moment this morning and no I don’t mean the band from the 80’s. Nothing like waking up and have something that was recently said end up sparking something that has been hidden away and causing problems. Being able to actually put a moment to it in time and realize, shit, really – I’ve been hanging on to that?!?
The real test will be can letting that moment go lead me to regaining a connection to a current person. Darn good question and one there the desired answer is yes. Only time will tell.
One thing I would gather from this is that it’s a moment of being brave that allows a person to look inside and figure out why certain things keep happening over and over again. I have to think that this one moment is what has been providing an issue that I’ve ignored for a long time but has led to similar things happening over and over again. Happy to know I’m allowing it to have been and will now pass it into the ether to no longer haunt me.
The idea of Brave is what is on my mind today and just my luck there’s a song that has come across my speakers that speaks of that idea. Jordan Reyne is creating music that is more than simple songs. They are journeys. This particular song has a Celtic feel. Am I on a Celtic kick lately? Not sure why I’ve had a couple of songs like that recently. Anyway, I’m mesmerized by her voice. Most likely that is due to her accent. I can be a real sucker for accents.
The Brave is a sparse and moving song. Lots of air and lots of little bits going on. Very intimate. Perfect for the way I woke up this morning.
Go explore that which is Jordan Reyne. Have a great day!
