Episode#48: In My Own Time - (Song at 7.38 & 20.35) Sometimes the cliche of ‘a dark time in a life being the time where seeds can be planted and eventually grow into something new’....happens.  This is what happened with In My Own Time.  One dark night long ago, I wrote down exactly the thoughts that came into to my mind- stream of consciousness style.  The music does reflect the mood of those words. But there's an underlying sort of uplifting lilt that comes through, almost despite myself. It seems to be an ongoing theme in my at and music - I will generally offer something that is ultimately uplifting.  But it's true. The artist's pain can become something that gives people pleasure, that's just one of the great things about the arts.  In this episode, I also include some of the version the band eventually recorded. It's quite ‘up’. So much so, it became the song we played first at all our gigs for a few years. Here's where you can hear the whole song ( and the album ‘This World Offers You) https://petepascoe.bandcamp.com/music So from the dark night of the soul, something has grown and it has lasted.  No matter what you're up to, if you're on a path, following a passion, never give up. Just keep moving and you’ll get through.  In this episode, I also play a quick snippet of a song ‘Unwind’. I recorded an instrumental version of it today. You can see the video on YouTube at Pete Pascoe Art and Music  Any artistic path has its rocky parts. You've just got to be determined - and perhaps a little mad - to see it through at times. When I wrote these lyrics, I wasn’t exactly on top of the world….and this week, on Sunday, I painted a picture at the beach. It was a really rough day. Very moody colours, but I had a job just hanging onto my canvas, let alone getting paint in the right places. But I got there!  I'm loving sharing my songwriting tips, ideas, etc... Each week, I look forward to recording an episode for this podcast. I record my spoken voice the way I rewrite my lyrics: I shoot from the hip, go with instinct and sense of exploration - and I have fun. Actually that's not a bad recipe to keep in mind when you're trying to get into the creative zone required to do anything in the arts.  Ok, I hope you enjoy this episode as much a I enjoyed recording it.  If you do enjoy it, there's 40 odd episodes to discover.
