My brilliant song writer friend Rhonda Gessow, who you have heard me talk about a few times before here, sent me this lovely email right after my last post “Morning Altars” came out on Monday. In case you missed it, the video is up and running now and you can see it here.
Getting her email was an affirmation that our word in print matters and that in letting go…. we open ourself up to healing and next endeavors. You may remember the song I posted that Rhonda shared called You Are The Star in honor of the Military wives and their children. Her son, our friend, has served in the military for longer than we like and her daughter in law and granddaughter are the stars of that song.
Rhonda understands the time that goes into writing. She just completed a 2 1/2 year songwriting course, practicing and studying 12 hours plus each week, with songwriter teacher, Jai Josefs. Rhonda is a dear friend from my home town and reads everyone of my posts and comments (I’m in awwww).
This new song, “Ship Has Sailed” that she co-wrote with Eduardo Alvarez (Ed Varez) is going to knock your socks off. It did mine, and they have had over 6,000 views in the last 8 days, which speaks for itself. I’ve been singing the tune everywhere I go and it definitely puts the Yay in my day and it’s only Tuesday!!! ❣️I will be posting the official music video in a few weeks but I wanted to share this now, hot off the press.
In here own words:
I saw your post today about letting things go. I was going to wait to send the song “Ship Has Sailed”, that I wrote with Eduardo Alvarez, (who also sings, produces, plays multiple instruments) until I had the official video, but it seems timely to your post.
The song is about finally realizing it is time to give up on a relationship when you have given it everything you have, yet, you continually get hurt by the person over and over again.“Ship Has Sailed” is when you can finally say to yourself, yes, I could try again, but I’m pretty sure the same thing will happen. I’m ready to say “it’s over” and “that ship has sailed”. It’s never too late to move on from the past, and find something new, even if that means being alone for awhile.
For those poets in your group, it also shows that songwriting, like poetry, uses different rhyme schemes, metaphors, sensory writing, and imagery.I attached the lyric video link above, if you decide to post it. If not, I’ll send you the official video in a few weeks.
Keep writing! I’m always so impressed with all of your works!!!
Of course I’m grinning ear to ear, and I’ve been listening to this amazing song “staying stone cold sober” as that “Ship Has Sailed“ which reminded me of my last post Winter Wonderland Love on MasticadoeresUsa There are no accidents. More fun to share on Fri-Yay Funday!
Have a blessed day and remember ships come in and sail, when the time is right. Let Go of the ship in the night that sailed past you and wait for the next one that lands in your harbor.
Blessings to you as you turn up the volume when you play the song. Please give it a like if you would be so kind. Thanks for listening and thank you Rhonda from the bottom of my heart, for your kind words and for sharing this song with us,
