Still Locked Down ... and being creative!
After the last Blogpost where I confessed my inadvertent revamping of the website … I just couldn’t keep myself from meddling and so after changing everything for about the fifth time I asked one of my Daphne’s Flight Goddess friends, Chris While, for some much needed advice and decision making.
Chris is our go-to-tech goddess for all things remotely arty and … well technical. She cast her artistic gaze over the mess I’d made and in no time at all, seamlessly found cleaner, clearer, classier colours, images and fonts to play with, et voila, as if by magic a much better and more user-friendly site appeared. We both hope you like it!
We’re still awaiting an onsite platform to accept payment for CDs/DVD/Downloads but for some reason to do with my living in the Isle of Man … we’re still waiting. We have it all in hand (fingers firmly crossed!) And will by hook or by crook, have a functioning Web-Shop very soon!
The other functionality I have yet to secure is creating and successfully delivering an E NewsLetter … after enticing many of you to “subscribe” to the website … I have yet to connect and give you a reason to keep coming back! That too is an inevitable future-feature I will soon have under control - watch this space!
In other news … I’ve done my third FB Live (replay HERE) from the sun room in my mum’s house on the clifftops of Kirk Michael on the west coast of the Isle of Man and am now in earnest rehearsals for another - garden or sun room TBD weather dependent - Friday June 26th. I have a whole new string of songs I’ve remembered and re-learned that I hope will keep you generally entertained.
Plus - I’ve been invited to take part in an online Festival over the summer Solstice … Campfire’s World Harmony Weekend! I have a 25 minute slot set to air at 7.30pm Friday June 19th! Check it out HERE: It’s always delightful to be invited to take part in these global events and it’s a real honour to be involved with something so up lifting and community conscious. Hope to see you there!
Please do have a look around and let me know what you think? On the listening page for example there is a track that no one has ever heard before … Isolation is a marvellous heart wrenching song from The Soldier Of Orange - written by good friends Tom Harriman and Pamela Phillips-Oland - Tom invited me to do the English version demos for the part of the Queen, when looking to get the whole production on in London. Which was on the cards till Covid hit … c’est la vie! Anyway I’d be delighted if you gave it a listen.
The world keeps moving even though we’ve come to a stuttering halt and I keep my mind on a positive vision of connection and general good will, and trust we will all meet again with lighter hearts and warmer smiles - very soon. Know you are loved beyond measure … and missed beyond words. Till we meet again … this will be a place to catch up and shoot the breeze.
Stay well and keep rising above the turbulence!
