Mei Emrys – “Glaw Mis Awst” (August Rain).

So, here’s another song by Mei Emrys. Probably my favourite from his album “Llwch”. And, a little bit of topic, did you know that mis (which means month in Welsh, and is used before the name of every month) is pronounced like Mish (MEESH) in south Wales?! I’m learning north Welsh, so it took me a while to realise that, but since I know that, I always say mish, not mis. 😀 Perhaps it’s inconsistent or weird but it feels like the only right thing to do for my brain. OK, so here’s the song.

Song of the day (5th March) – Kizzy Crawford – Enfys Yn Y Glaw “Rainbow In The Rain”.

I haven’t posted any Welsh music on here in a while, or so I guess. So here’s something from Kizzy Crawford, she’s half Welsh and half Barbadian, and I guess the majority of her music is in Welsh, she is a great vocalist with lots of possibilities, her music is something between jazz, rock, pop, folk, and probably lots of other things too. I think this song is very nice and I hope you’ll like it too. 🙂

Question of the day.

Hi guys. 🙂

Some time ago I asked you about the best way to spend a rainy day. Today my question is quite similar:

What do you usually do on rainy days?

My answer:

For me it usually doesn’t change much whether it’s raining or not raining, I usually don’t have to adjust my plans to the weather and don’t do it. Sometimes we’ll go outside in the rain with Mum on purpose, just because we like rain, especially when it’s summer and was rather hot. I also like the sound of th erain so sometimes when I don’t have anything better to do I might just sit and read a book and listen to the rain. It also happens though that sometimes on rainy days I can get pretty bad migraines and my blood pressure which is usually rather low drops even more so I’m just sleeping or in bed anyway. But other than that it doesn’t have much influence on my activities.

How about you? Do you like rain? Does it affect you in any way? 🙂

Question of the day (22nd January).

What’s the best way to spend a rainy afternoon?

My answer:

Well, you can do pretty much anything you wish, I guess, depends on your creativity. My go to activities would be probably to read a book, listen to some music, especially such that fits in the aura outside, get myself comfy and cosy in the house with Misha and something nice to eat and a hot drink, or go for a walk if the rain isn’t too heavy. But then I could do these things on a day without rain as well.

What do you think? 🙂

Question of the day.

Is there anything at all from natural world which has the ability to affect you mood in a positive way?

My answer:

Sure! First of all, obviously, Misha. Misha affects my mood and me in general in a very positive way. He helps me stay calm, lessens my anxiety, makes me more relaxed, makes me smile, keeps me company or even helps me come back to normal with my sleep cycle if it goes crazy for a while. Plus he’s beautiful. I think everyone would agree that beauty affects us in a positive way and influences us a lot.

Next thing, horses. I love it how the horse and the rider can be actually like one while riding and how strong the connection is then. My horse – and riding in general – is capable of making my mood significantly higher when I’m depressed, but I guess that’s also the thing with endorphines and such.

I love muscari, I guess that’s how these lovely blue flowers are called in English. There is something sweet about them I just love.

I find rain calming and helping me to concentrate, plus I like it also because when it falls, most of my allergies go to sleep.

And, since my early childhood, for some reason I’ve always felt something towards ice. I can’t explain it. I just like to feel it. I remember that I’ve even had a small dream to have a piece of ice that will never melt so I could feel it as much as I’d like to and have it in my room. 😀 I was just fascinated by ice, I guess, and still am in some way.

Another thing are gem stones, even though maybe some people wouldn’t classify them as part of the natural world. I love how beautiful they are, I really like to feel them and also in some way I do believe in their healing properties, and so I like working with them as I can, and I have a lot of admiration for gem stones.

Oh, and the sea! How could I forget about the sea? It just make me feel in such a very special way. And generally, being in contact with nature always makes me think about God and how perfectly He made all this. And when I’m by the sea, I tend to feel it particularly strong. And I think it’s also a positive feeling. I feel so grateful for Him he created all that beauty for us.

And I think I might have many other things in nature I feel a strong connection with, although these are the ones that came to my mind at the moment.
