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 :)

Sandwiches & Seagulls, Tea and a Rainbow

Lovely, puffy-grey-white clouds in the sky...
and the sun is bright yellow...I'd say,
canary yellow.

Looks like I've found a nice spot for future lunches.
I'm here at the Artisan Cheese Gallery, waiting
for my Duck Confit Sandwich. It's a place with cream
cheese coloured walls, a sprinkling of wooden tables
and chairs. Cheese from all over the globe is displayed
on the counter, wheels wrapped in shrink wrap, imported
pasta and sauces displayed on wooden shelves. Really
pleasant. Black and white pasta ribbons, lavender and rose
jellies, artisan salt packaged in square bottles,
varieties of honey in jars.

The Duck Confit Sandwich tastes good, albeit
a bit too sweet because of all the fig jam they
layered on it. The duck meat is juicy, the bread
is just the right thickness and it's nice and warm.


Now here at Peets.
The weather has gotten rainy and grey.

Oh, a rainbow briefly appeared, in the midst of grey
rain clouds...
it's gone now, but it was beautiful and it reminded
me of the promise that God had made to his people
so long ago, that he would never again flood the earth
as he did in Noah's time.

I pointed the rainbow out to the two people sitting
outside of Peets, an older gentleman and a younger
pre-teen of about 12. Both were wearing yarmaulkes
and the young boy was reciting something,
presumably scripture in Hebrew and the older
gentleman was his teacher, I presume, because
he was correcting the boy as he read.

The boy read the scriptures, perhaps just like
our Lord did, so long ago, reading the scripture
of his Jewish heritage as a boy in the temple,
elucidating awe from his elders at the wisdom
he had beyond his years.

Three little seagulls soaring in the sky.
Where do they come from? We're quite far,
I would think, from the sea, yet these seagulls
come by pretty regularly.

They give glory to their creator in the way
they fly, soar. flap their wings,
for they do what they were made to do,
and they do it beautifully.

Oh wow,

So I don't believe that I'm posting on your blog. Big fan of yours you see?

Keep that poetry flowing and hopefully one day I'll make it to a real life gig of yours.

Hi Corrinne, just wanted to tell you how amazing an artiste you are and how you are an inspiration! I think it's great that you are sharing the Lord and His love through mainstream music! And every time i hear your songs, i feel very uplifted and full of hope and filled with the joy of the Lord!

P.S- I'm 18+ living in Singapore!

Wow. The last part about the seagulls really caused me to wonder, "What am I made to do?" I've been struggling for the past few months (feels like eternity) about my purpose, calling and the "right job". I guess I'll find that living itself, breathing and walking, much like squawking and flapping, isn't "mundane" anymore, and God Himself will just lead me to wherever, whatever it is. Wow. Thanks Corrinne for helping me ponder a bit better. =)

That was a pretty poem :)
Thanks so much for being such a wonderful inspiration to us all. You do what you were made to do beautifully like those seagulls.

Stumbled upon your blog, and wanted to give you a little support. I'm an alumni from your old school as well, just much younger:) Keep running the race! God bless.

Hey, Ms. Corrinne. One of my best friends sent me one of your songs, telling me that your songs reminded her of me. By the time I heard it, I felt really blessed. They are such simple songs, but the gravity they hold is really something else.

Thank you for sharing your talents and offering them up to God. =)
You're just like the sea gulls that way. =)

(You don't need to approve this comment. I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that you're a blessing! =))

Hi Corrinne, yesterday was the leap year, Feb 29, and i went to catch the movie The Leap Years. I was pretty excited when most of the soundtracks of that movie were songs from your album. And after the show, i heard audiences from my left and right and even rear asking who was sang those lovely songs. It was a little embarrass, but it was like i turned my head left, right and to the rear and told these people the singer is from our very own talented singer/song writer Corrinne May. I remember saying this....
"She's Corrinne May, the CD shelf will be 'incomplete' without having her collection you know?"
And my bf was laughing at me the way i market your albums.

Keeep on keeping on! Loved the songs in leap years. They made it feel like the movie fit into the songs and not vice versa.

Your biggest SG fan.

Hi Corrinne, thank you for your music. Your talent is God's gift and you're praising Him with every note that you sing. Every time I hear your songs, I think of God and His love for us.

I've never actually thought of googling for more on you, and I am truly surprised, pleasantly, to discover your blog. Although I'm often busy, I will visit again and again, to read more of your posts.

Once again, thank you for your music.. I'm listening to your songs as I post my comment. :)

Dear Corrinne,

I felt compelled to post a comment on your blog after hearing 'Five Loaves & Two Fishes'. Something in your song moved me so much that I couldn't help crying. Thank you, in times as I'm struggling with my faith, you have helped me greatly. I pray and thank the Lord for speaking to me through your songs. God Bless you.
