Song 315

video


Saying song 315- 50 days left made me really sad today.

This song might be a tad melancholy. But, I promise its a happy song.


I'm going back to the land of environmental allergies and underground tunnels tomorrow. Toronto.

I do love Toronto, and after being in Halifax for 3 days I miss Toronto. But I love Nova Scotia. I love all our trees and trips across the harbor. I could never pick. Like relationships, I have problems settling.

For now, to deal with the woes of again packing up for a few days- some wild blueberries to cure my anxiety.

Song 314

video


this song was inspired by some mending I had to do on one of my dresses... It got me thinking that the mending job is (like cooking) only as good as the quality of ingredients you allow it. Which, me being such an expert in the world of relationships. I applied that logic to this.

So dear future husband, I'll sew you a suite and a wonderful relationship to match... maybe.

Song 313

video

Here is song 313.

Apparently I'm allergic to Toronto and I have environmental allergies. And thus my throat feels like a pool of fire. I would assume this pool would be made of gasoline and not water to make it more effective.

I grew up in New Glasgow- Which unfortunately was a hot bed for industry but there are enough open spaces that you can escape the pulp, tire, and steal mills.

My favorite activity when I was younger was going out to my great aunt Lil and Uncle Gilberts place and running through their huge land with their beautiful old sheep dog, feeding the goats, blueberry picking, and pulling everything that had leaves out of their garden.

I always hope that some day I'll be able to move to a country and have a spot like that.

This song is nothing about that, this was just a reflection on the fact that currently my day planner tells me where to go and my body is telling me that might not be such a good idea.

The song is about having your back up for good reason after too many burns.

Thanks again for checking out "A Song A Day"

Sincerely,

Mary, Bumbalina, Puff, jenny, Harry, Kink, and Midnight.

Song 312

video

Coffee gives me anxiety now. So my morning routine is confused. I guess songs are the new coffee.

I am slightly full of mixed emotions today. Toronto has stolen my heart. Its always so difficult to leave this smoggy city that I'm sure turns my pink lungs black. However, on saturday my Bumbalina came down with some sickness before my show at The Company House with one Crissi Cochrane ( http//www.myspace.com/crissicochrane ) and luckily Crissi has been stopping in to visit the little lady for me but she will (bumbalina) at be very happy to see me home.

I adore my cats far too much. But the worst thing is them not being able to tell you what is wrong... It breaks my heart.

Song 308

video



I have had a very intense week... I'm playing with Crissi Cochrane tonight at The Company House, and tomorrow I'm in Toronto at The Drake... but for right now- its totally a saturday afternoon nap.

This song is about the internet now. And how you can have a wikipedia page that says anything... like when waters wiki page said" is blue in colour and that is why pools are blue"

I could tell the internet that you had an imaginary pet unicorn that you bring with you everywhere, the internet would believe me. Clearly I am long over due that nap.
