Tick tock

Last night was one of those when you wake and your brain starts reminding you of everything you have to do, while also embellishing each with various disaster scenarios… and at the root of all of it is fear. Fear of not being good enough. So I lay there in the dark and rested my attention on my breath and no, I didn’t sleep, not for a long time, but I didn’t worry so much either so small steps, small wins. Had a chat with my best friend tonight, (she’s getting MARRIED!!!!!) – she turned me on to The #BulletJournal A few years ago and I’ve never looked back, she suggested I write them down and see if that helps…. good idea.

So today’s been hard, teaching double spin and aqua fit on 3 hours sleep is ugly! And tonight I’m not up to much so I’m working on the prototype shadow puppets for #Gaslight not tidy, not pretty but it works

Become a Patron /Matron

Last night I tried to record some of my new material, but the rain was too heavy. Today again, rain stops play (or recording) so I’ve finally gotten round to redoing my website. It’s one of those jobs I’ve been putting off, partly because I knew I was going to be adding a Patron/Matron page and I find asking for stuff difficult.

With @amandapalmer and her #artofasking as my spirit guide I’ve gone and done it. So it up there in my menu if you fancy it have a look.❣️

If you want to know what I’ve been up to why not take a look at my Instagram account @louisehartmusicandart I’ll be updating stuff here too going forward!

The weekend we should’ve been at Glastonbury

Well this weekend we hoped to be playing at Glastonbury at Crooners Corner. That was before lockdown. So here are some clips of me, standing on the tail lift of our converted truck, singing some of the songs I would have sung….

Fingers crossed for next year and hoping there still is a ‘Creative industry’ following lockdown….. 😘

Blue Steel

I saw these and those of you of a similar age will know why I couldn’t resist buying them. You know what? They sound good!

This is all part of the ongoing saga of my cracked guitar. It got too dry being played in the heat. It’s still at Manson’s being repaired… 😥😥😥

My wonderful husband, Jerri has been re-stringing all the guitars in the house. I have a nickel allergy and so normally use the Elixir strings but thought these would have to be worth a go on my trusty old Takamine… I might use it next time I go busking….
