She sits crossed legged on the well-loved Italian brown leather sofa, brow slightly knitted, concentrating, mouth parted slightly and I can see her tongue pressed into the corner of her lips, focussed. A cup of coffee sits steaming on the small wooden table in front of her, dark unkempt hair pushed back by dark rimmed … More IDYLLIC



The red plastic bench offered little comfort, I felt achy and stiff from the amount of time I had been sitting on it. But then again it was not meant to be sat on for an extended period of time; maybe 15 minutes tops as you wait for a bus to arrive, but not for … More SHELTER


On certain days, days like today, you can see it happening before your very eyes. It looks as if the Sun moves across the sky; slowly getting lower the further it moves.

I find these tracks gentle and beautiful, I can imagine … More SHOWCASE FOR JULY


To set the mood first play one of my favourite reoccurring tracks: this. Oh how I wish you were here with me this day (every day), the summer sun is just about to dip beneath the horizon and we would lay back and watch the inky dark clouds of night chase away the stunning blue of the … More LATE SUMMER SUN


Hopefully you guys enjoyed the tracks from last month, but a fresh month is upon us and here are some more links to peruse. I am having great fun not just finding the tracks to showcase but also the images to use. There are so many artists and tracks out there you could literally spend a … More SHOWCASE FOR MARCH


“Nightswimming deserves a quiet night” The journey over there was actually pretty quiet. I remember seeing you and my heart felt full, but things were noticeably strange, you were distant with me and my friend whom I was with looked at me and simply said “Frosty the snowman” both he and I understood what that … More NIGHTSWIMMING
