  • I've had some lovely pens made with AUTHENTICITY MINDFULNESS COMPASSION written on them. They are made of paper so that they have minimal impact on the environment.

The therapeutic nature of songwriting encapsulated in song. I originally wrote this on piano and I really enjoy the strange time signature in the verses.


When you’re upset, dazed and confused, put it to song
When things in life, bombarding you, do not belong
Whistle or hum, start with a tune, before too long
You’ve got a song

Relax your mind, open your heart, let yourself be
Opening up, writing it down, it’s therapy
Dispensing those, old heavy thoughts, your heart is free
Share it with me

Has you’re lover just left you did you do something wrong?
Has a young life departed no chance to belong?
Did you lose your way on that highway of life?
Are you pushing uphill in a never-ending fight?

Pain creeping up, slowly on you, backbreaking weight
Feelings arise, reason unclear, then you translate
Writing it down, sorting it out, never know what…
You will create

Someone out there, enjoys your song from the same place
What you have told, may dry the tears from their sad face
It’s good to know, you’re not alone, no not just you…
Having to chase

So you see that creating and writing a song
Can sort out your issues, they can be quite long
Getting moving again on that highway of life
Even help out another, achieve clearer sight
Clearer sight
