Forgiveness.

The ability to forgive oneself. Stop here for a few breaths and think about this, because it is the key to making art and very possibly the key to finding any semblance of happiness in life. Every time I have set out to translate the book (or story, or hopelessly long essay) that exists in such brilliant detail on the big screen of my limbic system onto a piece of paper (which, let’s face it, was once a towering tree crowned with leaves and a home to birds), I grieve for my own lack of talent and intelligence. Every. Single. Time. Were I smarter, more gifted, I could pin down a closer facsimile of the wonders I see. I believe that, more than anything else, this grief of constantly having to face down our own inadequacies is what keeps people from being writers. Forgiveness, therefore, is key. I can’t write the book I want to write, but I can and will write the book I am capable of writing. Again and again throughout the course of my life I will forgive myself.

A “Quite Canadian” ClayinVan”Melding/Drumtar”PlayList-FEb10th/2014 

Whaaats Up!?! #MusicLovers #Harmonistas

Its been a quite awhile since I posted a New Playlist.But here we are!

This particular “Melding/Drumtar”Playlist is full of AWEsome Canadian

Singer/Songwriters & Bands! & Other Amazing Performers from the U.S.,

U.K.& Norway’s Lovely: Ane Brun

A Quick explanation of what “Melding” & “Drumtar” is

"Melding" is Using my voice & accompanying (singing-along, if U will;) various pre-recorded songs.I’m Harmonizing w/ the music.

So many of us sing along w/ our fav. songs everyday but I’ve taken it to a different level and have been doing it for around 13yrs.

I have done Mini-Tour-Abouts in L.A. California , Lahiana ,Maui , Tucson, Arizona , Guadlajara,Cuernavaca,Mexico City,Puerto Escondido,Mexico

The Idea is to have People Singing Along w/ me.

I started out doing alot of popular mainstream music but over the years I have found I enjoy “Melding” along w/ a variety of diff. genres.

I usually “Meld” for 3-4hrs a day.

I look for threads in all the different songs, whether its the title or the style of music.So, if you do take the time to chk out this playlist I think You will really appreciate it.

"Drumtar" is an invention of mine.Originally it was to give me something to do while I sing/"Meld" but working with alot of symphonic based music ie. soundtracks I have discovered I can make some really unique sounds out of my full-bodied acoustic guitar.I can make the sound of a basic drum kit.Its pretty nifty.

I’ve done this for about 13yrs , 365 days a yr Now.

Why? Because I Love Music.Thats it.

No desire to be “Famous” Just to entertain the the people whose music I do & other artists,actors &performers I admire. And share some truly amazing beautiful music w/ these people & My Immediate local surroundings.

I invite you to come a watch me perform ANYday.

I’m on east12th & garden drive in East Vancouver CANADA

Tweet or Facebook Me

I’m ClayinVan on twitter or Clay Paul  on FB.

Or email me to set up a day and time.

I’ll let U make Yourself a cup of java or tea or my specialty “Raspberry Mocha” And all U have to do is kick back relax ,read ,work & allow me to entertain you or be your background music.

I dont ask for money.This music I “Meld” is other artists So,It wouldnt be cool.But if any of you are curious to know about the artists I will gladly send you links to their respective sites.

Peace &  Loves To You All:oD

Enjoy!
