Twee or not twee, smol bitty chirps, and mystical goddess-level winds of marvel! Been often said that April showers bring May flowers, and before The May posts have faded into memory I present a few drops of…
Some will see a gentle rain brushed by a maiden’s hands, while others will see…
the sound of light… and it all flows together. “Let me take you to the city of clouds”
“We love you too!” I don’t know if, in recent times, there has been anyone both as gently mythological, and humanly delightful as Aurora Aksnes…
“What would you do if you weren’t a musician?
“I’d probably be a dancer, because I’ve been dancing for many years of my life. It’s so liberating. Like trying to escape your own body, which in many ways can be kind of a cage because it’s really just something that you wrap your soul in. When you dance, it’s like you have no shape. You can be anything you want to be. So a dancer, or a painter. I love to write, I write small novels. Maybe an astronaut! I love everything about space and the universe.” The Verge (April 2016)
FLASHBACK: May 2016…
“Its weird how when you’re a musician or actor, you become ‘someone’ to so many people, and people want to know what you ate for breakfast. And usually I wouldn’t care what most people had for breakfast – unless they had something marvelously good….”
I think we can all agree that AURORA has something marvelously good every day!
Take us Home (asking…) palace of peace
Tomorrow Never KnowsThe BeatlesTurn off your mind relax and float down stream
It is not dying, it is not dyingLay down all thought, surrender to the void,
It is shining, it is shining.That you may see the meaning of within
It is being, it is beingThat love is all and love is everyone
It is knowing, it is knowingThat ignorance and hate, they mourn the dead
It is believing, it is believingBut listen to the colour of your dream
It is not living, it is not livingAll plays the game “Existence” to the end
Of the beginning, of the beginning…

A note about Tomorrow Never Knows. Various listeners have varied writes about what the actual lyrics that John Lennon sings in the song. Many people’s versions differ from more “official” versions. I believe that I have presented the lyrics very closely if not exactly what John sang. Of course the ear doesn’t always hear precisely. Listen for yourself. We all might hear something completely different on another day.
