Tea and Talks (there's a new CD brewing!)
Making two new OMNIA studio-CD productions takes thought, time and lots tea...
We're making the planning now for all the studio days we will need to finish up The OMNIA "Naked Harp" CD...
(which will be RELEASED this winter!!!)
and to plan all the recording dates for the NEW OMNIA Band CD...
(which will be RECORDED this winter!!!)
So today it's Tea and Talks with Fieke of Orchus studio to plan all our free time this coming winter full so that YOU can get more of the best quality PaganFolk Musick!!
Greenthingz and fresh infusions!

Birds in bed
baby Blackbird pt.5
This is what getting woken up by a strange bird in bed looks like!
(I mean... we've shared our bed with birds before, but never one like this! ;-)
And... Hasn't this little fellow grown a lot since my last blog about him?!!
the story so far:
we found him as a baby with a busted leg and no parents to take care of him...
(after a cat-attack)
the bird-doctor we took him to said it was hopeless,his leg wouldn't heal, he wouldn't make it in the wild...
so we nursed him and hand fed him and he grew...
he has now learned to use his invalided leg...
he lives in our house (and at dreamharps when we are on tour)...
he has learned to fly like a champion...
he is curious about the world...
he is starting to sing!... he talks with us and when we play music together (me on the flutes and him singing... it makes us feel like fucking cinderella!...
AND he is currently flying around through the trees above me...
we are giving him "living in the wild-training" now, he is free to leave the stenny studio any time he likes so, he comes and goes constantly, returning every hour or so for some food and a chat, and then flapping away again.
Every time he flies away could be the last time we see him, (snif) but that's how it goes...
we don't "own" this little soul... we are just taking care of him for as long as he needs us...
that's one of the things you do when you are an EarthWarrior :-)
Greenthingz on growning wingz!
Stenny and Piepje (aka: "Glokta the Wyrmslayer")
