award winning media midwife + artist + producer + professor
Last night Dave and I co-produced, Trust Myself, in a cappella, but with multiple tracks of my voice. When I got up to the microphone I said, "Let's McFerrinize it".
I love the way this song feels like a swarm of women are singing with me, in harmony and in unison, sparingly. I also love the message of this song. It was the first one that I wrote in February 2012. I remember trembling, hands slightly shaking with fear, while typing. It was an electric and mighty experience to channel the lyrics and melody into Garage Band at 1am, while my family was sleeping. At the kitchen table by candlelight, it came out in about 10 minutes.
This morning as Jay and I got the kids ready for school I told him about the recording the night before and said, now that the demo is done, "I am not attached to what happens with my music and yet I have a very clear intention of spreading my songs far and wide. That said, the guiding force behind my writing, singing and producing of these songs is for our great-great grandchildren. Anything else beyond that is gravy." My husband nodded and said, "Good stuff, Ahrona".
With that, I am sending strong visions of liberation from the inside out for myself and for all beings. Intend and then be flexible.
