Archive for the ‘music’ Category

i found this while browsing  soulmama’s blog i suspect just aout the whole world knows about the soulmama blog but if you don’t know about it then go check it out because it is really amazing and it is one of the reasons i decided to start this blog.

anyhow i love this video i love the song and i love it because i am really facinated by paper engineering. i would love to learn more about how to create amazing things from paper but a lot of what i am interested in doing requires an exacto knife and dmitri tends to want to participate in whatever i am doing so i am planning on waiting a while before i get into paper cutting. so here is the video i hope you enjoy it as much as i did.

singing

one of the creative artsy things i do is sing. i don’t know how to record myself with my laptop and besides i am kind of shy about singing around others. i do sing a lot though in fact there are days when i sing almost all day long. dmitri may grow up thinking that life is like a musical and it is totally normal for people to just burst into song just because the mood strikes. dmitri has been known to sing as well and he can sort of carry a tune. singing is the one creative act i do daily no matter what and without having to try. it just happens like breathing happens. i wonder how common it is for people to sing the way i do. am i an anomaly or is this something everyone does and people just don’t talk about it? i almost exclusively sing songs i have made up myself and while i won’t share a recording i will share some lyrics. this song has been inspired by the aphids that are taking over one of my fava bean plants.

are you asleep or far away
lady bird lady bird come out and play
come out today
if you come out you can eat at
the all you can eat aphid buffet
