Im not really sure if this is the best way to share but....
On the 23/03/21 A fire started by a wet futon destroyed everything I have ever owned in regards to a home, instruments, clothes, computer and recording equipment.
My car and I only just escaped with a scorched rear as I watched helplessly my life go up in smoke while flooded in on a mt.
You could say I died in that fire because I have nothing left from that past, nothing which I used to identify myself with. Physically I am ok and my family was not there,
except for some burns on my hand during the 4am panic of watching my home dissolve.
Some of the things I lost : Laptop + all my backups 🙁 x4 Indian Slide Guitars + no crystal slides.... 4 Tablas Tanpura Guitar Electric Slide 12 string guitar 4x Shakuhachi flutes Genelic Monitor speakers mics and all recording equipment x2 Loop machines x2 Interfaces Solar System Hot Water System House structure Caravan all clothes / shoes all forms of Identification, passport etc wallet, saved cash from around the world. phone video cameras etc etc
you could say this list is also for my own letting go process and I ask anyone reading this to reflect on how fragile everything truly is that you see around you. It all happened in a moment during a time of a great creativity and musical focus.
it was an instant reset with nothing left from that fire. The irony was it was supposed to be flooding.
Will upload some pictures when I get a new phone.....
The other funny thing was I was backing up all my latest music before the fire took off recording some fresh new tracks and feeling it was a good time to save everything. The fire left nothing.
I was planning to release Patreon to the world this week for support so I will share the link if anyone feels obliged. I do not know what is the right thing to do and do not know if this system will work now I have lost my laptop etc etc but I feel I am now an empty canvas seeking your help to find again my musical colours....
I am sorry, please forgive me, I love you, Thank you.
