Name:
Location: Los Angeles, California, United States

I write songs, I sing them... I play the piano and a little bit of the guitar.. I've released 5 albums of music, I love the scent of freshly fallen rain and the scent of lavender on bedsheets. I would drink tea all day long if the caffeine didn't keep me up at night. I hate driving in L.A traffic. I would love to one day catch the squirrel that steals the plums from my tree and make him a pet. I don't watch TV anymore. My 3 year old daughter is more entertaining than any TV show could ever be :)

Time Travel and Jet-Lag

Sunday 30th September 2007

I think Kana mentioned that it takes the soul about
2-3 days to catch up with the body after a long flight.
I have to agree.

I got up this morning at 4 a.m
We'd gotten to bed at 6.30 p.m Saturday evening after getting
into Los Angeles at 12.50 p.m

I'm still in the throes of disorientation and readjustment.
I think that travelling and being shuttled from
one world to another is great for precisely that, ie.
having to question your pre-existing notions of comfort,
of home, of space and of time.

The sun is a little lower in the sky and the weather has
gotten cooler in the 2 weeks that we've been away from
Los Angeles. People are now all decked in sweaters
after the last flashes of summer skin from two weeks back.

It's so wierd to have all these worlds within us, these
worlds that we carry around and interact with.
Memories of Japan still within me...and as I write this,
a poignant Eastern pentatonic scaled melody is being played
by the violin over Peet's speakers.

I agree about the Jet Lag... I'm heading home on Monday and so don't look forward to the lonnnnngggg flight and the subsequent "blurness" of jet lag and time zone change...

Hey there!

My name is Rebekah and I'm 22 this year. I was previously from RGS (NCC as well heh heh) and I'm currently studying now. But what I truly want is to write music. I have tonnes of lyrics and I can't write the tunes cos they sound the same after all. I know you'e probably very busy but if you have time, could you look at some of my music? Yup thanks!

Its echoesfromthewall.blogspot.com

Anyway you write very well. It's simple and uncluttered and I'm always encouraged by your music! Have a good week ahead!

Hi Corrinne :)

Just drop by with a heartfelt hello! I was watching Mulan (Disney Film)the other day and I kept telling myself Mulan resembles someone... someone... and I figured it out eventually. You are indeed the someone :) I then turned to my hubby and said "Mulan looked like Corrinne May!" He agreed too :) heheh...
