Hey everyone, I want to firstly thank you for even being here and reading this. I hope you know that I do value you and your opinions as part of the MMWM family.
This was kind of a shout out to all of you wonderful listeners, who I’m sure know a bunch of cool people, if you know any artists or musicians who would like to be a guest on my podcast #MindfulMinutesWithMusicians . Please, if you havn’t already, go and check out all of the episodes and if you have any questions or suggestions. I would be more than happy to even voice those out over an episode as well. Thank you again for being here and I hope we get to converse soon.
Just writing to you all, cause you’re great. I’ve been sick with covid for the past week and a bit. I am feeling a bit better but it’s been a crappy process and I wouldn’t wish this on anyone. Thank you for supporting me and checking out my website during this time. There will be more content coming!
I’ve seen that there are viewers to my website from all over the world and I’m really curious who you all are. I’ve seen viewers from Ireland, India, Vietnam and the United States. If you are checking out my website and happen to see this post. Message me back and let me know where you’re checking out my website from and what brought you here. I’m super exited to hear from you all. Cheers, and if you havn’t yet, pop over to the Mindful Minutes With Musicians page and check out all of my latest podcasts! Thanks for checking this out, hope to hear from you all soon.
Hope that you’re all doing well. I havn’t reached out virtually lately and feel that I needed to touch base with everyone. Thank you again for watching, reading and being a part of my journey in some form. I recently added my Mindful Minutes With Musicians Shorts; A Mindful Minute with a Musician on my YOUTUBE
I guess this is my own little Saturday Night Live, by offering up a bunch of content from Mindful Minutes With Musicians. Again, I really appreciate everyone checking this out and if there is one thing that I would ask of you is to tell one person. I think that if everyone were to share this with one person then we would be able to get this great podcast and these great words to more people. It is a slow process, but one that is started and can’t stop now.
If you feel like you’ve been effected in any way by this podcast or if you have already shared it with anyone, please let me know and connect with me. I would love to hear how this has effected anyone’s life and made a positive change.
All comments are welcome and I look forward to connecting.

Its been so great so far and it’s only just started. Its been super exciting and informative on all kinds of levels. I’ve been tempted to buy a bunch of books, and having it linked to the UofT bookstore its just too easy. I am not a writer by any means and only just share my thoughts, but I am someone who appreciates a good book! Check it out at http://www.festivalofauthors.ca
Do you know any musicians or artists who you believe have a really mindful practice or who have been able to create success during this pandemic? I’m looking for guests to continue this great podcast that I started. It can be musicians or artists, as you’ve seen I’ve had all kinds of people and they’ve all provided such different and amazing information and ways of getting through these rough times. If you know of anyone, reach out to me through the contact on the About page, or Follow me on any social media and contact me through there. I hope that you’re enjoying this warm fall weather. Talk with you soon.
I’ve been doing a bunch of odd jobs, well, within my industry. And one of them is video editing for a online streamed festival. I am so happy to be a part of it and its been something that has helped me tremendously throughout the pandemic and it’s even encouraged me to read more. The one part about all of this video editing though, is the rendering time. It is inevitable for a video editor, but it is this time that almost forces you to take a break. If you take a moment, then you will be able to optimise those moments, hence why I’m writing this blog post. I almost want to think of it like its extra time. Time to utilise and be creative. Always use your time to be creative. Knowing that you also are totally able to take time to rest as well. There needs to be balance in life. And that is almost like we need time to render ourselves. Let’s take that time.
Hey, I know it’s been a while and I’m not keeping up with posting as often as I should. I did write a post about not pressuring yourself and the creation, but I also believe that if you’re not doing it you’re also missing out. I have met up with Arthur Tutt, of arthurtutt.com, I’ve been working doing online streaming for the Harbourfront centre’s TIFA festival. https://festivalofauthors.ca/ . Thats just a few of the things that I’ve been up to. It’s been a difficult time and I know that there are a lot of people who are having a really rough time right now. I am doing my best to keep my head up and create great content. I am working on a few interviews and have some stuff coming. I hope you stay tuned. I really appreciate you.
I wanted to touch base on this notion that we HAVE to constantly be creating content. I think that it’s a lot to put onto yourself and it’s not always the most effective way of getting the message out there. We all have our soap box and opportunity to get up and say what we want. And it’s appreciated by everyone who is watching and getting something out it, no matter what it is that they may be getting out of it. The issue is that there has been such an influx of content with the internet giving us absolutely anything we can think of at our fingertips. So, the question is…to be seen do I have to constantly be creating content? In a short answer, yes. But, I think that it is equally, if not MORE important to take time to recharge your own battery so that you are able to go out there and harness the creative juices in a creative way. That’s how you will be able to come to some kind of equilibrium in content creation. If there is even such a thing.
The main thing to remember and take from this, is that you need to be doing stuff for your own internal self. You are not going to be able to find or harness the creativity within yourself if you are already drained. So take that time and don’t give in to the pressure to constantly create content. Cheers
So, I’m writing this a day late. Not on purpose, just because I want to start creating more content on here. I want to show that, yes, if you put your mind to something that you can eventually achieve it. This has been a journey for me, a long journey. My podcast Mindful Minutes With Musicians that you can get to with a few clicks on my site, has been going for over a year now. Im coming up to episode 25! Check it out this friday!! It has definitely not been an easy process. There have been a lot of hurdles that I could have used as an excuse to stop. I kept going. It hasn’t been the cleanest or most polished. But every episode gets better and the process has become more fun the more I do it. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. I hope you get a chance to click around and watch a few episodes. Cheers.
I am here, not as a writer or as someone who claims to know anything about mindfulness. I seriously started all of this because I was reaching for strings to find out what to do during a pandemic when my entire industry was halted. That’s a daunting and shocking reality. It was one that hit hard and is still effecting me to this day. I have been lucky enough to have been able to come across some amazing people this year and I have also been able to see the journey of a lot of people. Not everyone is doing OK. Not everyone is living out the lives that they’re showing you on Instagram. Or whatever social media that they’ve chosen. I guess this leads to what I wanted to share, was that it is always going to be a process to find and cultivate those inspirations. And I could be campy and say that you just have to wait for those moments and harness them. But that’s not the truth, sometimes it’s really hard to find inspiration. Sometimes you have to go out there and grab it, or create it. Sometimes it’s best to take that time away to clear your thoughts and come back at it to find that inspiration. I’m not even going to say that I know how to find inspiration. That is a journey for everyone to go through. I know that the one thing that you can always count on and fall back on is your breath. Take a breath. That is the best place to start looking for inspiration and it can only lead you in the right direction.
Wait…have you seen the latest episode with DJ Phillipe?? Stay tuned because next week is with Brent Kobayashi, Marketing and Web design firm Kobayashi+Zeitguys. Check them out at Kobayashi.ca
Hey, David from BlackmoreMedia here. Just wanted to provide a space for us to ‘take a minute’ and get into a restful mindset.
Hey everyone, I just wanted to thank whoever has come to look at my site. I’ve recently seen a few new followers and I absolutely appreciate all of you as well!! These are the things that are going to keep making this site better. I want to personally thank people like Brent Kobayashi and Arthur Tutt from Kobayashi+Zeitguys and ArthurTutt.com who were there for me at the beginning of the pandemic and have been supportive the whole time.
This is a time of reflection and moving forward. I plan on not only looking back and appreciating the people who have helped and checked this site out along the way. But also the people that followed and contacted me about work this year. I’m super excited to be working with an amazing artist Jessica Karuhanga as well as the amazing PUSH.Pull Cabaret series, this year. As well as some awesome stuff coming up with the wonderful Karen Cann that will be released next month, stay tuned for that. I want to thank everyone else who I’ve missed in this message and I look forward to creating some amazing content with you all soon.
