Time, in days and weeks and months

Working away so hard on The Lost Words and hope that soon I will be able to show something of the books. In the meantime there are 38 calendars at Help Musicians, needing homes. So, I thought I would help them sell them, as many people were asking me where they could get them before christmas and shops had all sold out.

So, here is the complete calendar. 12 big images, all framable, and if you want to use as a calendar, loads of space for this.  If you would share the post, on facebook, twitter, whatever, then we can help Help Musicians sell the last of their stock and raise money for them. And if you do then leave a comment on this blog post. Tell me who you love listening to, add links if you wish, would love to hear who makes your soul sing. And now and again I will pick people to send a card to, and when all 38 are sold I will send a random handful of cards and things, from the last picture here to someone who has left a comment. Not the calendar though. I only have one. Just some cards and things….

Here’s a link to buy the calendar: Help Musicians.

About Jackie

I am an artist and writer. I live in a small house by the sea in Wales where I write, paint, walk and watch and dream of bears and whales. I love to read, have a wish for wings and prefer the company of animals to that of humans, though at times I can be quite friendly. I am learning how to work with wood engraving tools and hoping to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks.

    Well, that’s an irresistible offer! I’m excited to get this calendar – so far all of your art that I have is in Singing to the Sun, and I can’t get enough of those beautiful, dream-inspiring pictures.

    As for favourite music, where to start? But I’m very much enjoying Christine and the Queens right now. And still immersed in mourning Leonard Cohen through listening repeatedly to each of his albums.

  2. Such a lovely idea and what a beautiful calendar, it shall be my inspiration in my office for the coming year. As for music for the soul, this Christmas gave me Kate Bush, Sensual World on vinyl complete with whistles and crackles which does wonders for my heart and soul.

    Recently got a new CD player and am rediscovering Loreena McKennit.

    I know I said this before, in an earlier blog entry, but – it’s worth repeating- this calendar is something else. Each image is ……..complex, simple, magic, beautiful – I think I said before, that it will make me happy, right through the year- seriously, folks, get one while they’re to be got – do! I’m looking forward to next years.
    And Jackie asks what do we listen to?
    Led Zeppelin, for over 40 years – still fresh – and, not just the music – listen to the lyrics – ‘In The Light’ – I give those lyrics to troubled folk. Leading on from that – the Wonderful Mr. Plant – solo now.
    Van Morrison – again – over 40 years. Hendrix.
    Prince – God be with you , dear man. Bowie. Old Soul music – including The Godfather- Mr. Brown. Funk – Reggae.
    Blues, Blues/Rock.
    Paulo Nutini- just when I was giving up on today’s music, along comes a man who can write and sing, and looks good too!
    Scottish/Irish traditional – sometimes given a new slant – The Pogues.
    Hildegard of Bingen and other …..mystical kind of things. Gregorian chants.
    Too many to say, Jackie – music………..matters.
    Helps us through hard times, helps us to enjoy good times.
    Anything that’s good to dance to – T. REX! “I love to boogie!”

    So delighted to have been able to replace my 2016 Jackie Morris calendar with 2017’s.
    I had thought of keeping it up as your pictures bring much joy to even the most mundane of days.
    Your art feeds the imagination, and a musician who feeds the soul and certainly makes it sing is Martyn Joseph … Welsh singer songwriter … passionate, angry, gentle, with a great social conscience, and who is just amazing to see live.

    Here are the lyrics to ‘In the Light’ by Robert Plant. I take the ‘I’ in these words to mean ……all that IS. Not a particular God or Gods – more – The Universe – all that IS. And we are all part of it. Sometimes we lose our awareness of that connection, and feel alone, but – whether we are consciously aware of our connection or not – it’s there. We are ….everything, and everything is us. To quote Mr. Plant again – “When all are one and one is all.” I feel that I am everything, and nothing, and everyone, and no-one.
    I suppose this brings us back to the ‘soul’ again.

    IN THE LIGHT

    And if you feel that you can’t go on. And your will’s sinkin’ low
    Just believe and you can’t go wrong.
    In the light you will find the road. You will find the road

    Oh, did you ever believe that I could leave you, standing out in the cold
    I know how it feels ’cause I have slipped through to the very depths of my soul.
    Baby, I just want to show you what a clear view it is from every bend in the road.
    Now listen to me
    Oh, whoa-whoa, as I was and really would be for you, too, honey
    As you would for me, oh, I would share your load.
    Let me share your load. Ooh, let me share, share your load

    And if you feel that you can’t go on
    In the light you will find the road

    Though the winds of change may blow around you, but that will always be so
    When love is pain it can devour you, but you are never alone
    I would share your load. I would share your load
    Baby, let me, oh, let me

    In the light
    Everybody needs the light.
    In the light, in the light, in the light

    Light, light, light, in the light
    Light, light, light, in the light, ooh, yeah
    Light, light, light, in the light

    AND – Bluegrass – the harmonies of Alison Krauss.
    AND – The Unthanks – especially their ‘Magpie’ song.

    There is simply SO MUCH good music out there. What gets me, is that humans have been producing music for millenia, and millenia, yet we are still producing new sounds and tunes, and then more new sound and tunes again. We are a marvel – we can be utter horrors too – but….we are a flamin’ marvel. MUSIC.

    I was too slow and so missed out on a 2016 calendar…this year shall be different so have just visited Help Musicians!
    Music for the soul has to start with Vaughan Williams, closely followed by Elgar. That music can transport the weariest or most troubled of souls to a plain of calm and relaxation.
    I’m really looking forward to the release of The Lost Words Jackie, and am catching up on your own beautifully illustrated stories!
