Music + Art = Magic

Copyright Tattered Edge 2009


I had a page left over from a class at Artfest and decided to play with it and this is what I ended up with. I kind of like it and I might just mat and frame it. The colours are coming from underneath the black paint. Sometimes it pays to experiment. I might just make a few more pieces like this. While I was working, there was, as always music playing. What was I listening to today? Look below!





I wanted to share with you a group I really enjoy. It's The Wailin' Jennys. If you like meaningful, beautifully crafted lyrics, along with sweet harmonies and string music, then this is the group for you.

This video is called "One Voice" and is from the 40 Days album. The entire album is magical and worth every penny. It's soft, soothing music for in the studio. If you like The Be Good Tanyas or The Indigo Girls, you will enjoy The Wailin' Jennys. And as if their way with music and lyrics wasn't enough, I also love them because some of the Jennys are Winnipeggers, like me! *grins*

One Voice (Ruth Moody)


This is the sound of one voice

One spirit, one voice

The sound of one who makes a choice

This is the sound of one voice


This is the sound of voices two

The sound of me singing with you

Helping each other to make it through

This is the sound of voices two


This is the sound of voices three

Singing together in harmony

Surrendering to the mystery

This is the sound of voices three


This is the sound of all of us

Singing with love and the will to trust

Leave the rest behind it will turn to dust

This is the sound of all of us


This is the sound of one voice

One people, one voice

A song for every one of us

This is the sound of one voice

This is the sound of one voice
