The changing seasons: May

I’m late with this month’s The Changing Seasons post, and I think it’s because May is a month that passes largely unnoticed in my life. There are no birthdays to celebrate, no public holidays, no special events. The weather tends to be all over the place — warm and sunny one day; heavy rain the next.

It is New Zealand Music Month however (have I mentioned that here already?) and I have really enjoyed my daily trawl through the Kiwi music archives. I’ve found new songs and rediscovered some old favourites. I’ve been both elated and flayed raw by some of the memories that have been awoken.

I’ve even picked up my guitar, dug out the chord chart and some music, and thought about ways of creating time in my days to practice.

Here’s the song that inspired this desire to make music. If I ever sound this good —ย  I’ll let you know.

  2. May has been a music month for me too – though not personally, I am totally a non-musician, but my OH has been enjoying recording some of his music at last. I like your guitar shot. And I hope June is a more inspirational month for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks. It’s definitely shaping up to be a creative, making things kind of month. So good to hear your OH is making music. I am not particularly musically talented, but I love it when the people around me make music. I miss that my son isn’t playing guitar much any more, but I guess he’ll pick it up again sometime. In the meantime, I’m enjoying my solo sessions (the process rather than the results) ๐Ÿ™‚
