Want a peek into magic? One of my muses posted an interview with V Magazine talking about her process in creating musical art and I absolutely love this.
I really like her response on how taking a retreat into the woods inspired this album:
K Musically, I think this is by far the most meaningful work I have ever done. I just feel so connected to it. I have always written and vocal-produced but now I’m also producing a lot of [the music] by myself, so that feels really good. At times I feel like a slave to this work, completely tortured, like giving birth to giants, toe by toe.
Sound-wise, I’ve been trying to channel everything that I see and hear in the woods, all the magical creatures and simmer it in a sauce made of my favorite ingredients like electronic, ambient and industrial music. I feel completely fearless and unapologetic as a human being right now when it comes to living exactly how I want and I think it will really show in the art I’m working on as well, lyrically, musically, and visually.
But what’s equally amazing is the pictures and the video that came with it.
Get ready to be entranced…

A peek inside is a new posting I’m starting to spread a little love and light and inspiration whenever I run across an inspiring interview.

Two posts in one day will catch us up.
Day Ten: Start Story with: “She touched The Little box in her pocket and smiled…”
She touched the little box in her pocket and smiled. Sweet, sweet deliciousness. The thought of cracking open the box of chocolate and eating made her mouth salivate. She could already feel the chocolate melting slowly in her mouth brining her taste buds to life. A smile lifted her lips and she skipped down the cobblestone driveway.
“Mom” She shouted flinging the door open and slamming it shut behind her. She dug into her pocket taking out the sweet treat.
“Mommy, I’m home.” She skipped her way down the hall and pounded at her parents closed bedroom door. A door that was never closed during the day.
She tried the handle after five unanswered shouts to her mother. What she saw made her drop the chocolate and her vocal chords worked out an ear piercing scream, involuntary. Before on the carpet lay her mother blooded and dead.
Catch up on Day One, Two, Three and Four, Day Five-Eight, Day Nine.
And for the whole list of 31 Days of Magic
This week’s Prompts:
Welcome to this journey to through my mind. Hope to have a lot of Creative Madness and help you Embrace your own type of Madness.
What is this Madness?
Your outlook on life that sets you apart or thinks sets you apart from the norm. Normal is so overrated. Weird is my brand, my nickname I’ve had since birth, and lately I’ve been trying to wear it as a positive instead of a negative.
Why should we Embrace the Madness Within, you ask?
Why deny yourself the pleasure of being yourself and doing a job that no one else can do, that’s being you? Why hide and try to be normal? Where is the fun in that?
This blog will be filled with a lot of random things. I love writing, reading, and music. I also love to research and learn a lot of things. I’m a writer of Fantasy. So yes, werewolves, vampires, and fairies are on the top of my research list.
Join me on this Madness train. I’m a newbie at blogging, although I do journal a lot, so forgive me for my lack of experience. I hope you enjoy.
“I have found both freedom and safety in my madness; the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us.”
― Kahlil Gibran, The Madman
