Nobody Tells You Out Loud - So, People of Ukraine, Thank You!

Today we of The Netherlands remember the victims of MH17.
And amongst all the blah-blah, and the heartfelt proper words that actually mean something, I want to add my own.
Whilst we dither about a memorial people can actually touch, there has been one erected in Rozsypne ages ago.

And I would like to thank the people responsible.
Simply: from one human being to another.

Thank you!

A Leap Of Faith...My First Musical Intro.

Hiya, good to see you!
Do you know the feeling that sometimes Life gives you a nudge, and that when you do not react fast enough it gives you an almighty shove in the back?
This happened to me, today.
I saw an invitation by American singer Melody Gardot, to join her in a choir on her new CD. It immediately fired up my enthousiasm, for I so love to sing! 'All' I had to do was record my voice, upload it into a transmittable file and send it to her via email.

GarageBand is a feature of my Macbook Pro, but I hadn't used it for years, too busy with life, work, family, blogging, gardening and learning to play the guitar. So it took a while for me to suss out how to record, save, upload and then send in the sample of my voice.
Whilst I was struggling with this alien matter (well, to me...I am not a natural born computer nerd), I found a recording I had made years ago, out of boredom during the lunch breaks at my (then) work place.
I listened to it, and had wild idea, all of a sudden.
Here I am, a blogger, lately about music.
And I had produced some form of music.
And now I am taking an immense leap of faith.
And am inviting you to hear it. If you dare.

Here it is:

Do let me know if you like it.
