Electronic Devices and Fuel Driven Machines don't seem to like me. That's how it has often seemed anyway.
These days I take it personally! I've got a manual lawn mower for instance. So much more peaceful. And a while ago I bought a hand worked coffee grinder. It takes me 10 minutes or so to grind the coffee every morning, and it could be a hassle.
Instead it's becoming a wonderful daily reminder to slow down. Take my time. Haste me not. Honestly, my breathing gets calmer as I do it, and before I face the tasks of the day.
I see Homesongs as the hand ground coffee of music. The end product is much the same.
They're just that little bit less rushed. And less parts to go wrong!
