As I sit here watching the sunrise, I find myself thinking about creativity. Creation. Our ability to manifest something wonderful and all the excitement, work and love that goes into every thought and process for that creation. It has been awhile since I have made a blog entry, so this topic seems fitting as I have been busy “creating” something new in my life.
A few of you know that I am a singer, or at least I have been. Performing in bands, musicals and shows, any piano bar that would let me……Ithas always been a passion of mine. In my late 20s I was a songwriter, but just like the “entire world,” my songs and voice never made it to the vast stage that is the general public. My passion and love for singing and writing has been rekindled since I met Eric, and together we have created our first song.
I can’t tell you the joy and happiness that working on and completing this song has brought me. It rekindled my passion for telling my story thru music. I certainly have my TV ArtScapes Nature Series and all the joy that creating these wonderful Nature DVDs brings, but now I have another outlet to express myself, and hopefully inspire. It has been so fun, working with someone that shares my passion for music. Oh yeah, and he is also an awesome guitar player! I am so blessed to have found my voice again.
We have been lucky enough to have found a place to hone our passion for singing. It has been at the Vincent Hill Station Restaurant and Saloon, in Acton, California. We are known simply as “Eric and Veronica” and our picture, skillfully taken by JC Forbes, hangs on the “wall of fame” with other performers. You can find us there most Sunday afternoons from 3:00 to 7:00PM. We hope to unveil our new song in a few weeks. And as soon as I can find some extra time in the studio, it will be on YouTube!
All I know, and I can say this from experience, is never, ever, give up on the dream of what you want your life to be. We have dreams and goals for a reason. Dreams are usually what fuels us. Dreams are most always linked to our purpose in life. Don’t deny the journey to explore and refine your passions. The reward for that journey is far more valuable than giving up. It’s a journey of self discovery, sometimes disappointing, sometimes joyous, but always enlightening. And perhaps you will find fulfillment, contentment and love along the way.
What do you want to create? Do it now. There is no time better to start then today!
Love and Light Always,
Veronica Crystal Young- 40s Goddess
