Breath was written in response to the things I heard as I listened to the lives of those I cared about (and their associates) functioning virtually as windup toys about to pop or blow a cog.  The demands, personal, governmental, environmental and temperamental taking so great a toll that the point of peace and focus was slipping away like the plot in a really bad B movie; stress causing the breath to shallow, never releasing the toxins it creates.  So I decided to “down shift”, one level to the next until we begin to “pool” and find our space of personal collection.  If you go with it; if you flow with it you can catch that breath you didn’t know you were holding.

The Background of "Traverse"

Story

Traverse - To travel or pass over, or through; to extend across, as a bridge that traverses a river.  In our desire for growth there are places we must leave, and dare I say, hope to never return, to get to where we want to go.  In this case it is a shift, a lateral move, as it were, from “Now” with all of its trappings to “What’s Next” with all of its blessings and responsibilities.   This composition is seated around 729Hz considered to be the new standard for universal healing frequencies and DNA activation with the potential to cause our personal  frequency to raise in terms of is electromagnetic range.

For those of you who find this kind talk so much hocus-pocus please refer to the scriptures in Genesis  that read, “and God said…”  then dare to consider the possibility that there was and is more involved than what we  understand when we speak.  Biblically, we are shown that Creation was a sonic event.  The God Spark is within us.   What can we create within to transform ourselves (and thus the world) with the same tools?  Sound.  The Wall of Jericho fell before it.  Saul mellowed to David.  Let us be careful to not disparage the science of it just because we have never thought this way before.  Principles do not change - only the circumstance.  It is here that the miraculous can be repeated.

This song helped to open my heart though I wrote it only seeking whatever change would occur.  What do you need to crossover to?

It has been said that the necessity is the mother of invention so the story for the Song “Miracle” is pretty straight forward, quite simply, I was in need of one.

There are times where we find ourselves in a place where we must face that fact that we are “stuck”.  Nothing heavy, nothing profound,  just the simple realization and admission that growth is not only desired but required to come out of an interior dessert and away from the choking dust of rut and run-of-the-mill. “I need some air” is the rallying cry but nothing within physical sight seemed to offer it.  So, health issues notwithstanding, I knew that it was time to take a trip inward.  I sat down to create a point of healing for myself around a sound that I knew could minister to me in my broken and neglected places, that being 528Hz.

Within in this composition I have literally lent my breath to the listener.  While spending time regularly in this musical atmosphere, and linking my breathing pattern to that in the music I observed amazing results ranging from increased physical lung capacity to an inexplicable all-encompassing calm that prevailed when hot duress sought to have its way with me; these mind you, were only the things I was aware of.  What will it do for you?  There is only one way to find out.

 Amongst the Cherokee the oncoming of spring thaw is worthy of celebration and is feted by what is known as “The Long Man Ceremony”.  Being a mountain people they recognized the melting of the water as a harbinger of life and beauty for all and honor is given where honor is due.

I have had the tremendous opportunity to participate in such a ceremony and dance in the river, holding the place of gratitude foremost while sending, if you will, tendrils of myself to connect with the water.  It was not in vain.  Words do no justice to what I received for my effort, if only for a moment to feel the fluid strength, flexibility shaping everything it touches, to catch the barest of glimpses of life giver seeking its own level was spectacular – quietly.  This song is to honor the day that “Long Man” met me where I was – and sang.

Have you ever dared to believe with all of your heart?  What if you asked someone to believe with you?  What are the possibilities?  This song represents that belief.

The conception of this piece came from a phone call I received from a ministry collecting funds for the people of the Sahel Region of Africa experiencing the ravages of a long standing drought.  My heart went out to them and I vowed to send money.  Only to find that it didn't seem to be enough.  I said to myself, "Some small understanding of connectivity has been afforded to me.  What could happen if I combined the intent of my heart to music, understanding it as an energy source"?  I set about the task.  Learning a little about the rhythms of the region, spending time reveling in what rain feels like on my skin as I wrote.  Once the song was finished I asked a dear friend if she would enter into the task with me, she promised to listen to the music and pray for a week.

A few weeks of believing went by and still I felt as if there was more to be done so I set about putting together a video to go with the song with interchanging images of drought and rain states.  Just at the very last clip and literally moments prior to posting it on the web I realized there still may be those who would only want to send just money and did not want to not leave them out.  In searching for the different agencies to which the funds could be safely and effectively funneled, I learned that the Sahel region (at the time) was now having to deal with the after effects of flood.

Can my friend and I take any credit?  No.  There is nothing to prove.  No lines in the sand that can be drawn and it certainly was not about us.  The Sahel, after all, can be known to have a rainy season but there are still times I find myself looking up and saying, "What If"?

There are bonds and then there are Bonds.  My body only knows the birthing of ideas, and art forms, and for these I am eternally grateful but someone else carried the child that is mine.  There is a place that she fills that I had no idea existed.  Through her I have come to understand my own mother - dimensionally.  She brings light and hilarity and in my guiding her, has taught me a facet of womanhood I had never hoped to know.  Truly, there is something about the laughter of a child that rings the heart like a bell.

Thank You, Baby.

There are some things that truly embody the word “remarkable”.  A dance well danced, a life well lived, to include one who is so seemingly comfortable in their own skin that heads simply must turn.  Well this, is that!
