Week # 5 Parade

As I sat down this week to write song #5 in my 52 week challenge…i dove into internet research and the life of a firefighter. The challenges they face. I was captivated by the thought that at any moment, no matter where they were, a birthday, a wedding, fast asleep in the middle of the night, a christmas dinner where they were called away to risk everything they have for someone else. This is a trait that not only impresses me, but inspires me to no end. The courage it takes to run into a burning building to find someone who may already be gone.
A firefighters life and health is not an easy one. My research, while only scratching the surface led me to some pretty interesting statistics.

I applaud those who answer the call. Who charge into the cold night with adrenaline pumping through their blood…unsure of what waits around the corner. The risks they take for those in need is above and beyond what the average day is for the rest of us.

Thank You for giving so much. For charging in while others are running away. For staying calm and fighting through toxic smoke to pull innocence from the clutches of the fires grasp. Thank you for being there.

Honor a firefighter today!

Week #4 Hold Your Tongue

This is the fourth song in a 52 song challenge. Each week I have taken on the task to write, record and film myself playing a song live. This weeks song is about the things we say, shouldn’t say, should’ve said. Please make a comment, like the video, share on facebook, twitter, google +.

Thanks for listening. If you have any questions or suggestions of future songs, i’d be more than happy to hear from you.


Week # 3 Face In the Clouds

I recently was exposed to some photographs of beautiful places. Playgrounds, rivers, mountainsides…each one of them captivating by themselves. As I browsed through these photo’s and read where they came from…I truly was taken aback. The images were of places where victims bodies were found. Terrible tragedies. I was in awe and shock at the same time…and in these moments, I am often compelled to write about it.

Would love any comments, please share…or just sit back and listen and get lost in the moments.

Thanks

North
