just update

 Went to Neuchatel yesterday, needed to be near water. The lake is actually pretty nice and the town is charming.  I just sat there basting in the sun, vitamin D my friends. On my travels as a nomad I observed more and more that the French speaking Swiss region is much more cheerful and polite than other places. Children still greet you on the streets, grown ups too. Total strangers, with a smile on their face. Refreshing. These days I run more and more into people who have a story to tell, sometimes quite astonishing and also valuable. I am not sure what this shift is all about, but I suspect that times are in change, the old must leave to make place for a new openness between human beings. 
In that vein I would like to announce that two of my songs will be played on the radio tomorrow (Thursday), 8PM central European time, in Freistadt Austria. Here is the link:

Just an other attempt for openness.

I am not quite certain what this world is aiming for, the future is a bit misty in this shadow of present unruliness and natural disasters.
It seems to me that we all need to compound focus, faith, compassion and optimism. In loss of that, the boat will sink. A tragedy indeed!

Congratulations about your songs Zee. Unfortunately I missed it by exactly one hour and 20 minutes. Is there any other way to hear them, perhaps a link I may have missed?

Zee said...

Yes Paul bot you will need a good job unless you are independently affluent

Cym,hope you got my direct email

If by direct email you mean the one sent on Monday called "We are on the Radio", yes I got it, but the link is the same one as what's on this post. Since I missed your live broadcast, I don't know where to find your song on that page. Is there a direct link to it anywhere on that site, that maybe I'm missing? That is all I'm asking, though don't mean to trouble you about it, it's no big deal, just thought I'd listen to it if I could find it, otherwise I suppose I'll just have to wait until next time around.

you are really going to get a boat and be a pirate? it is a blood-thirsty profession. although i can imagine you sailing off into the sunset, content to have a purpose and a free heart.
most people are nice if you smile at them. but you are right, there are places where people don't even look at you. i found that true on the paris metro- people keep their eyes averted and don't talk to one another. weird, eh?

Zee said...

There is a bit a problem with that, Sera. To be a true pirate you must first capture, not buy a boat. I dont think I have the guts to do it. And then you need a crew, with at least one piratess . Obstacles to make this all happen are grand.
Eh, New York subway is not much better than Paris. Boston the same. I believe many people have anxieties when caged in a moving box underground. The streets and Cafe´s are better.
But just in general, perhaps this is totally subjective but it is real for me, people seem to open up much quicker than in past years. There seems to be a longing to connect and not waste any more time and look away. A human to human experience.

Zee said...

By the way SERA what are you doing 4 am in the morning posting on my blog? You are almost as crazy as I am. Hope your liver is OK, that thing starts it´s "cleansing backwash" at that time. Keeps you awake when it has to work too hard.

Your travels are taking you to some really cool places, Z.

Any chance I can still hear your song?

Zee said...

Yes Nova, they do. But now I need urgently a job. I did run out of all assets and debt frightens me.
