It only seems right that I should mention my latest artistic endeavour - let's be honest, no one else is going to. Hold on to your hats, and set your alarm early for Wednesday, 1st of June. From 8.10 in the morning (don't ask), the world's music streaming services will echo to the silence of people not playing my new EP. Nôl is a 3 track EP from Sŵn Colin Jones - The Colin Jones Sound, featuring two traditional Welsh melodies (Ar Lan y Môr and Suo Gân) together with my new composition Nôl. I'm very happy with it. If you do have an idle fifteen minutes I'd say it's worth a listen.
I've already written this post, but I thought it was a little unhip to release two blog posts on the same day, in the same timeslot, so I've held this back for the Blogger robots to release. However, a small delight should always be shared, and I am slightly delighted to have found most of my old Blogger posts and resurrected some of the less embarassing ones on this growing new blog device. Things I have learnt during the past two years, part thirteen; Coffee is better freshly ground, by one's own hand (in a grinder, obvs) Just because a year sounds like an optician's diagnosis (20-20) doesn't mean it will be a good one Take a moment, see how you feel, and if what you're doing now doesn't make you either happy or richer, it might be time to move on Don't take my advice
I always had a problem when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up; I never could find an answer. I would have said astronaut, but I knew that the food was awful I eventually started saying ‘architect’ which led to a university course and a good grounding in many design skills, but my heart was never really in it. What I didn’t know then, and I didn’t realise until recently, was that the very thing I wanted to do to make a living didn’t even exist at the time. It might not even exist now. Next scheduled post: Fri 9 March.
