When I first started plunking around on a computer writing essays back n the mid-90s I used to listen to music. Enya was my go-to background sound. I bought her whole collection. I also liked Vangelis. Now I find listening to music while writing to be a big distraction. Getting old, I guess.


Music distracts me too. Unless I want to listen to music. I can't stand it while watching a tutorial video on YouTube with music blaring, especially if the person is talking. No music while I'm driving. Just the sound of the engine and the wheels on the road. Old? Fashioned prehaps.

Paul Mcartney's son 'Jamie Mac' used to post here frequently about 4yr back: I bet he knows some musicians?
Ah, yes, but that was 🎶 “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away, now it looks as though there here to stay, now Armageddon’s in the fray and Putin now will have his day. Why he had to bomb I don’t know, he wouldn’t say, NATO did something wrong now we long for yesterdaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy.🎶

It is either about getting old Robert, or it is about your choice of music. Enya is a musical form of obsessional compulsive disorder, OCD, that repeats itself endlessly in the mind and one can hardly ever sail away sail away sail away from it, …..sorry, I mean stop it! from recurring in the mind. There is no detox remedy for it, and thus the brain shuts down to any distraction whilst writing. If you wish for inspiration whilst writing, though, I can thoroughly recommend Wagner‘s Gotterdammerung Siegfried‘s Death and Funeral March. Inspirational, especially when writing on the coming tribulation! Or for lighter reflection, say, on creation, there is Beethoven’s pastoral symphony, clearly something that, being discussed here of late, has nothing to do with watchtowers pastoral claims on the flock, thus safe to listen to!

Love, love me do brother! Sir Kier Starmer just promised to bring down the enormous U.K suicide rate if elected.....Each time he is presented in the media it is infront of a Fabian sign!.....Oh the lonely people!

If there were any justice in life they'd be this lot:


What a bunch of clowns, cowards and idiots.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going back to Wagner...
I totally concur. Nothing like Wagner to stir the very soul and move mountains of heroism and ideals, cleanse the soul of the dross in this life and feel the dawn of creation as it arose from the very hand of Jehovah. I often think that Robert‘s Creation video should be set to Siegfried.

Here is a song Robert that might get your creative juices flowing. Covered by Sing It Live. Nice guitar work and vocals.
