The Reason For My Music Videos

Not much needs to be said here because the video says it all. I hope you stay on my channel and watch those you haven’t seen, subscribe and tap the bell to get notified when there is a new one  Your support of what I’m doing will determine how successful I am when I’m ready to publish my book.  Notifications like this, and my mailing lists are the way I will be able to tell people it is  FINALLY READY. I have a ways to go. About 40% more chapter rewrite and new music. Then it will be ready to edit. As a first time author I need to know if I dotted all the eyes and crossed the t’s. It’s been a fun journey  Thank you! 

Crazy Dreams and Sleepless Nights -YouTube Music Video

This is my most recent music video to go with a chapter in my book  “Inside The Forbidden Outside”.  Life has gotten enormously busy and staying on top of things as my audience grows has been challenging  I have so much appreciation for the people who make the connection between the story and the music who have expressed an interest in the book when it’s done. Does any know how to invent more hours in a day, because there is something that always suffers because of a lack of time to get to it.  What this tells me is that I am onto something good or if be looking for ways to fill my time instead of the other way around

It’s been hard to post ad often as I’d like to, and my numbers suffer because of it. I don’t have the time to go to the many blogs I’ve found and enjoyed. Please forgive me for that. It isn’t because I don’t want to.

There is so much swirling around in my brain of things that needed to be taken care of to clear the space to write. I’ll get back here as often as I can. Please share this with your own social media. Go to my blog mynameisjamie.net and read the chapters I have posted to see how Jamie’s life inside the book is coping with the challenges of prison. At that blog you can subscribe to ITFO News and get the occasional update on the book, music, videos and any news of significance.

You can also go to my music Facebook page : Sonni Quick Piano Improv – like and share with your Facebook friends. I need all the help I can get to reach as many people as possible. 😁

Have a great year!

 

 

Who is Taking Care Of My Broken Heart? Music video

 

This is my newest music video. I hope you enjoy it. This music piece has quickly become one of my fastest rising improvisations currently playing on 3 streaming sites, as well as a variety of other social media sites. When someone likes my music it is the best feeling for me.

My recordings are all home recordings. It’s been awhile since I made a recording in a music studio  and since I am not an engineer, and my knowledge of sound mixing is nonexistent, there are at times obvious mistakes I’m not sure how to fix.

This recording of, Who is Taking Care of My Broken Heart, mentions Jamie’s son, the man who is the main character in my book, Inside The Forbidden Outside.

Jamie has not been able to have any kind of face to face relationship with his son while he has been incarcerated because no one but myself has taken him to see his father. I live far away and can’t easily get to Texas. No one else has done much of anything to help and support him. You find it who really loves you and who only say the words

That is why his heart is broken

I couldn’t resist. It’s getting close to the end of the year and I think I should end on an upbeat note. This put a smile on my face. It came from a time in our history when comedy didn’t have to be rude or crude to get a laugh. It didn’t need cuss words. It didn’t need words at all. The actors poked fun at themselves instead of making fun at someone else’s expense.

So sit back and have a laugh. Watch it twice. I did!

Unintended Consequences – Poetry and YouTube Video

Unintended Consequences

I never thought I’d have to live
in such a lonely place
I touch the walls on either side
I never thought I’d call this home
Memories here I can’t erase
A thousand people all alone

I never thought this was where I’d be
My life would work it out
I never dreamed my window
was the only way I’d see
the beauty of the world outside
How can I continue?

An unintended consequence
Not thinking what will be
the end result, not thinking through
Pretending I was being free
I didn’t think, I never thought
my careless choice I can’t undo

I never thought what would I crave
the most if taken away
The touch of skin, your silken breath?
Sends goosebumps up my spine
I shiver once and desire more
“You didn’t think,” I heard you cry

I only have my memories now
To keep me warm at night
I wrap my arms around my head
Pretending you are touching me
It will be years, will you be gone?
Touching someone else instead

An unintended consequence
Not thinking what will be
the end result, not thinking through
Thinking I was being free
But I didn’t think, I never thought
It would mean losing you

There is a chapter in the book I am writing with the same title. The book chronicals Jamie’s life in prison and his maturing from a boy into a man. This is a true story taken from hundreds of letters we shared, along with a creative narrative joining the events together  I had to crawl inside his head to understand but after 13 years of writing to him I understand him pretty well. At the link for the chapter you can subscribe to my mailing list to get periodic updates 

Because of the sheer volume of work that needs to be done preparing this book and writing the music and videos it is hard to keep up my 2 blogs as frequently as I’d like. Thank you so much for your support.

Princess Alice – Shunned by The Royal Family – YouTube Video

This is a rather unusual post for me. I was checking  my YouTube channel – Sonni  Quick Improv Piano  – when I saw this video. Fascinating. A deaf member of the royal family and mother of the current  Prince Andrew, husband of the Queen, who the royal family tried to make disappear and even locked her up. Taken away by men in white coats , speaking her from her 5 children. In one sanatarium she was treated by Sigmund Freud, who heavily xrayed her ovaries , without her consent, thinking she would be sent into early menapause. He thought he could alter her desire for sex because she claimed to have a sexual relationship with Jesus. When she wasn’t locked up she did much  to help the needy during the two world  wars  and also wars between other countries. The video includes quite a number of  videos during the time period of 1885 – 1969 and includes footage of  WWI and WWII and what this royal did with her life. There were videos of the royal family never seen before this program .

This video is about 45 minutes long so watch it when you have time . I didn’t intend to watch the entire video but it kept unraveling more story . Enjoy and thanks for watching!

It would be easy to read this title and think it’s a happy video. Going to the carnival and having fun. Not Quite. It actually represents 8 prisons so far that Jamie has been moved to from one end of Texas to the other.
