Travelling the world with music, especially street music is a goal that I’m 100% committed too. There’s a vast number of reasons why, a few; I want to see the beauty of this world and experience everything it has to offer, I want to be able to inspire my younger siblings to do the same, by testing it and giving them as much advice as I can and I want to bring value to the souls I met along the way. There’s no desire for fame or money, knowledge and peace is the goal. Learning, I love learning. It’s said that seeing the world is beautiful but understanding how it functions and works is even more beautiful. To meditate with locals across India, dance with tribes in South America, climb the mountains and explore the beauty of the oceans, there is so much to be done!
Gratitude sits in my mind every morning, ‘I’m thankful for this opportunity that music is giving me. To be able to travel whilst making music’. And I know there is goodness happening from the acts with music that I do, the joy on strangers faces as they walk past, the kind words sent via social media. All I want to do is expand this affect of goodness, this ripple that I don’t yet understand. So a thank you to you, for reading this and showing your support!
I have many routes mapped out, as to where to go next. I still continue on my coastal tour of the UK, but my mind is planning way ahead. The more I think about it and learn about the world, the more intense my desire grows to give it everything I have. Go all in, 110%, don’t stop, don’t stop, don’t stop.
I’m still young and most definitely not wise, but I ponder and wonder all the time. While sat watching the sea relentlessly push at the shore today, a thought grew.
Be like water, persist, wave after wave.
Like water, it never ends, the oceans are always moving, to shape the land we have. It’s huge and it never gives up. My intuition says that we should be like water, that we should never give up, we should be persistent with our dreams, our goals and our growth as individuals. Whatever it is that you want to do, just keep doing it. Even when the obstacles arise, keep going, when you make a mistake, keep going, when failure knocks you down, keep going. Never stop. You can only learn from your mistakes and failures.
Water with time shapes the cliffs, one wave at a time. Progress is sometimes invisible, but it’s there, progress is progress no matter how small. So persist. If you want to be better skilled at something, practice everyday, even if only for 5 minutes, persist, wave after wave.
I still feel I’m too young in life to be attempting to understand the depths of what it is to be human. But I enjoy writing about this stuff, and if it brings you value of a kind, then that’s awesome!
On another note, I’m in Wales! 😀
The video at the beginning is in Cardiff. Now I sit writing in Tenby, today I busked here, and here’s a video of that;
When I was playing, a woman, lets call her Sheena, because that’s her name. Stood eyes closed, swaying like a wild flower, singing these lovely melodies. She was lovely to watch, the melodies just poured out of her, maybe I ruined it a little bit by over playing, just wishing she was a bit closer to the phone so you could hear her a bit louder.
It was Tenby’s Firefighter Carnival 2019. Which got insane, after this song (above), a chorus of drums appeared, trucks filled with water guns, water bombs and fire hoses were spraying the entire street. Water bombs straight at my face, apparently I have a big one, because it didn’t miss.
Now I rest.
See you again.
Thank you for reading this!
