    Poetic Inspirations Ep 39

    in Spirituality

     There are many books of poetry in the bible.. Proverbs and Psalms contain many poems that are relevant and inspiring!


    The Spoken Word has become an art form that has evolved throughout history. How we interpret it now may be different than how our forefathers did. Folk culture and story telling has influenced poetry much. Yet the best poetry lies in the influenced word of God.


    Where are my People???


     


    My people I am calling on you the ones who I created to worship


    You are my people my chosen ones’


    Where are you now in this time of need?


    So many lost souls, so many hurting and dying souls


    They need to be encouraged and acknowledged but yet they’re not


     


    Where are my People, the chosen?


    Those who I have ordained and given grace and mercy too?


    You are my treasures and in you I believe


    Lately you have shown me a lack of obedience


    But that’s ok!! I have already girded you with all you need


     


    It is time and the choice is yours


    The season has come and a nation of healers must rise up


    Healers to the people who are lost and don’t know me in the


    Pardon of their sins…Yes you must choose to fight in this army


    I don’t take prisoners, my job is freeing them


    From inner most spiritual wars and conflicts


     


    Where are my people? Will you rise up and be heard?


    Will you rise up and make a difference


    Will you rise up and stand for me?


    Standing for the Christ, The Holy Spirit, and Yahweh


    Or will you just succumb to the plans of the adversary?


     


    I know the battle is hard and people are watching


    But I tell you the truth when you ride with me


    None of that even matters …just trust in Yah


    And know everything will be alright.....

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with James Day and U-Nam!

    in Music

    Seriously, it's difficult to find a place to begin - in trying to convey the utter surge of joy - upon hearing "Repertoire."  It's a co-production: James Day, the most esteemed Soul-oriented songwriter - and U-Nam, the electrifying guitarist who is championing a new record label, Skytown.  These are High Times for U and James - and that's meant in the most organic way.  They're on FIRE with this music and the things to come BECAUSE of "Repertoire."  


    That's what this new work is called and it doesn't escape this radio host that the title is French, just like our friend, U :)  Hah! But it's way more in the way of explanation.  The word, repertoire, has a definition that we'll use here: a stock of skills that one habitually uses.  TOTALLY James Day!  This seasoned veteran has honed some MAJOR skills - his lyrical content is something that is both poetry and street, ballet and hip hop, filet mignon and grits.  His words are beautiful and real and current but timeless.  When he partners with those who graced this album, the emotions are palpable!  Extraordinary music with a James Day lyric - and talent like Maysa, Walter Beasley and the late and truly great Gavin Christopher?  Then throw in U-Nam?  By now, you're salivating, right?  That's because you love honest music!


    Some important background on James.  He moved to New York to study musical theater some years back - and he was doing SO well!  But he was diagnosed with Meniere's Disease, which results in vertigo, tinnitus, and hearing loss.  To say the journey back to health was challenge-free would be a lie.  But he triumphed!  And James turned his attention to the studio that he had built at home while in recovery.  A silver lining.  James has MANY stories about those!


    See you on 5/3!  2 p.m!
