My favourite Composer – Thomas Bergersen

Standard

Thomas Bergersen is part of my favourite Group Two Steps from Hell. He composes lots of other amazing music apart from the epics for Two Steps from Hell.

In March 2020, Thomas Bergerson announced the seven part album series Humanity. Humanity is intended to be a seven part album series exploring all aspects of human emotion.

On 1 July 2020, Humanity Chapter I was released. The first chapter’s focus is on freedom, strength and unity, bringing many musical cultures together in a colorful and expressive way.

On 11 November 2020, Humanity Chapter II was added. Chapter II is about our families, children, dreams and desires, our legacy, our hardship, heroism, fate and purpose.

On 6 May 2021 Humanity – Chapter III was released. With Chapter III, Thomas wanted to take a soft approach to exploring the deepest, purest and perhaps the most fulfilling feelings we can experience as humans on this planet.

Love


He describes in this emotional chapter emotions of love during life as you can see from the titles: Sparks, Red, First Kiss, Butterflies, You are my home, Magic, Born to dream, Little star, Growing old together, Until the lights go out, It was a life worth living, Love suite, You, Sunshower.


The album, I dare say my favourite Humanity album, is amazing, there are no words to describe it really.

Every title is really bringing the emotions out with the orchestra.

My all time favourite from this album is Until the lights go out with piano and guitar.

This track is so peaceful, so calming; I want to hear it when I am at the end of my life, ready to go to the maker and have it played at my funeral.

I am practising it on the guitar, it is so beautiful.

In the meanwhile Chapter IV is out too; If you like it – look out for it.

Thomas has a facebook page here where you can stream his music.


Age

Standard

Age is of no importance unless you are a cheese.

Today I am cheesy  – it is an important day – my 60th Birthday.

So I collected some age related words and advice:

“Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.”
― Franz Kafka

Today is the oldest you’ve been and the youngest you’ll ever be again.

They’re called the golden years for a reason. Getting older has its perks. For one, you’re good at using what you’ve learned. This is called crystalized intelligence, and it keeps getting better, even when you’re 65 or 70.

Older people might control their emotions better, and focus more on how to make the most of life.

You probably know that exercise and diet are important when it comes to aging well. But there is something else you control that can help you along: a positive attitude.Research shows more and more that your approach to life may be just as important in making your “golden years” your best years.

Aging: It’s in Your Mind

The Power of Optimism

It’s difficult to know what comes first — the good health or the positive attitude.

One possible answer is they build on each other: A rosy outlook may help you  exercise more and eat better. And that in turn helps you stay hopeful and happy because you feel better. You may hear that called a “virtuous circle.”

Optimism has been linked to living longer.

Things you can do include:

  •  Check yourself. If you’re having negative thoughts, pause and see whether there’s a better way to look at what’s bothering you.

  •  Seek out humor and laughter

  •  Make time for things that give you joy

  •  Find positive people and hang out with them

With this in mind,

help yourself to some cake and Champagne to celebrate with me.

Cheers!

Let’s celebrate life ♥ Each Day ♥

Standard

Each day is precious

Each day gives a new start

Each day gives new opportunities

Each day is a gift

We easily forget in our daily routine that

Each day needs to be celebrated.

When you arise in the morning

think of what a privilige it is to be alive –

to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love!

Marcus Aurelius

 

Wishing you an amazingly awesome day! 

 

Best TV – Guest post

Standard

Hi all,

it is Thomas here.

I hope you are all well and are keeping healthy.

As it is rather cold out there.

I was more often in than out,

keeping myself warm with my new heated cat blanket.

I love love love it.

The best buy my mum has ever bought.

She gets purrs and love from me in return.

The other day we watched TV together

and there was a great nature programme on.

The birds were rather interesting, flying along.

I had to watch closely so they don’t fly out of the TV.

I so love our sessions together,

cuddles, strokes, belly rubs and pleanty of food.

I am a very happy, content and loved cat with little needs.

Humans can learn from that.

 

 

 

Get dressed

Standard

Getting dressed, getting ready for the new day is routine for some

it can be exciting or meditative for others.

Once you choose your clothes

add these:

Try optimism on. It’s one size fits all.

And it’s free. Go on, it’ll look great on you!

A smile is the best makeup that a girl can wear

Sprinkle a little more love onto everything you do.

Let the light within your heart shine throughout the world.

Now you can journey through your day

with efficiency, hope and a sense of humour.

 

And don’t forget:

You are amazing! 

Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone
Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety
Your breath can radiate Love or muddy the room in depression
Your glance can awaken joy
Your words can inspire freedom
Your every act can open hearts and minds
