Let’s go back to 2007! Do you remember what you were doing? Now let’s come back to the present moment. Can you write a list of 12 things, significant moments that changed, shaped or transformed your life in some way? Try it.
I remember and I wrote these 12 things, as songs for Pictures of Mars as chapters. It’s days like today where I know it was totally all worth it. Today I received an extremely heart felt email from a fan from 2007 – Dennis. He kept the photo of us which was taken at The Palms after my concert and in the email he said “you are an inspiration to many and I am looking forward to hearing you live again” and this made so happy! Dennis is also on his own spiritual journey and he and I have been in conversation about this and sharing links of audio books that I listened and books that he has read.
Creating freedom to me, means sticking to your beliefs and values no matter what. Having gone through painful experiences and writing about them, I never once stopped following my dreams. Because dreams are what shape our lives.
Being in Melbourne, grounding myself here, I am being reminded of the past. The one thing I remember is that I made this album for my fans. I felt like, back then, that they really knew me because I was being 100% myself. I spoke from the heart and I was living my dream. Dreams keep us alive and so do our desires, what ever they may be.
Going through a journey of self discovery in order write these songs, it was through thorough determination that I would get this album finished no matter what, to the fans who voted for me and I knew in my heart that I would.
Today, it has reached the heart of someone whom I’d always dreamed it would and it’s given me confirmation and reassurance that it will reach many more.
Thank you Dennis.
