I think the commencement of a new year brings so many thoughts, questions and re-evalutions to one's mind so instantly. Theoretically, it's only another day, created by man, so why care about it so much. It's apparent though that someone decided to divide our life up into a series of regular intervals, all having a beginning and an end, so I guess it is the sense of completion (and hence, a chance to forget) that allows us to move onto into the start of a new 'year' with new hopes, dreams and aspirations.

Don't get me wrong - I'm completely for new starts. I've always loved the idea of New Year's resolutions and the fact that 'tomorrow is a new day', I've probably sang the theme song from Annie "Tomorrow, tomorrow, you're only a day away" more than the pumpkin-haired girl herself. But this year I'm taking a totally new approach.

I've achieved, I believe, alot so far in life. Big things. Things that some people didn't expect and things that some people didn't agree was a good thing to achieve. Regardless, I've climbed some pretty big mountains.

However, I've also let so much idle time just slip by. Just pass me in the most existential of fashion, but it's not going to happen anymore. I've honestly had a pretty horrible year so far (though, agreed, that is where you seem to notice the many rays of sunshine more) but what I've decided is not to let my circumstances, whether I have control over them or not, dictate how I percieve myself, or what I believe I can [and will] achieve or even how I behave. I'm going to change the things I can so I am constantly moving forward without even contemplating turning into a pillar of salt.

A few close friends of mine and I have decided to wake up, and finish, each day asking
"What have you done today to bring yourself closer to God and your dreams for 2007?"

Now, you can ignore the whole God-part, that's not my choice, but sometimes I feel we can let months slip by without even moving towards our dreams. We all have them, as vague as they can be sometimes; some just voice them louder than others.

So I challenge you all, every day ask yourself that question. Clichedly, it's the small steps that are the most significant in bringing us to our hearts desires; so each day evaluate what you have done to get you closer to where you want to go.

Life is precious. We know that. You wouldn't let diamonds just fall straight through your fingers.

Chris

At current, I am very tempted, and almost pushed, to write an emotionally charged four to five paragraphs regarding circumstances and people (read: a certain person) which, although written at a time of [controlled] emotion, is not a momentary feeling or rush, but based on gathered thoughts. However, instead, not to point out my maturity or even to make any reference to the fact that I may, or may not, be above you, I will write this:

I am going to conquer this world. I am going to achieve more than is thought possible and more than what even the most gifted of artists or the youngest of children can ever come close to imagining. I am going to make a difference to this world, the close people around me, and to my life. I will not let circumstances predict my future, but rather push forward, and over them, and succeed, God-willing, in everything I set my heart and mind to. I will be all that I am entitled, and more than what I can be. I will see no limits, I will ignore any negativity. I will forget doubt and build my life on faith, hope and love. I will not bow down to unjust boundaries but rather fight, without any disrespect, for what I believe.

I have humbly whispered these words enough; from now I shall shout from the rooftops: "I am Christopher Harley."

I urge all of you;

achieve the unachievable
forgive the unforgiveable
dream the unimaginable

Make a difference and be just about it.

prove the impossible.

within the next two years I'm going to New York with a libretto in one hand and a score in the other; an unbeatable mindset in my head and complete faith in my heart and I'm going to begin to conquer the world.

You will never break me.
My spirit is stronger than you will ever know.
And soon I will fly free;
to a place that I can finally call 'home'.

It's that feeling when you find a new amazing chord progression and you've given a new sweater.







And it's raining.

As those suspencefully, free chords began to play,
my eyes closed and that certain smile creeped over my face.
She saw; smiled that same smile, and spoke into the microphone.
"This song is for Christopher Harley;
my soon-to-be international famous music friend,".
The only dedication of the night; and it was for me.
And as those chords repeated and grew, from a few notes
into a life more beautiful than most dare to live,
her eyes closed and her mouth opened.
Her hair gracefully hung down, though rarely she allows it, and that voice...
that unmistakeable voice filled the room; hardly letting people breathe.
I know I didn't.
That voice, that can convict the purest soul and move the hardest heart,
sang out that melody, making it her own beautiful song.
Even though the crazy, border-line possessed hat-woman's dancing blocked my view of the rhodes solo,
it was a song and a moment I will never forget.
It was stunning...
and my mind has not stopped singing since.

 

Son of a Tokyo Rose
I was bound to wander from home
Stranger to whatever I'd awaken to
Spun the wheel, took a shot in the dark
One way ticket and a runaway heart
A sailor's dream came true the night I dreamed you

Through the neon doorways
Down the stony streets I fell
All hands high side, all eyes erect, I follow
Sailing shadows, reds and blues
Curtains drawn but I saw through
The window to your soul, and I found you

Whoa, the harbor lights of Venus
Shining through the breeze
That brings me back to you my love
To you my love, to you my love

My eyes must be betraying
But that lonesome jukebox playing
Something about the harbor lights is calling me
Back to some Jamaican Bay
Doesn't seem so far away
Keep the change, but I'll repay these memories

Dawn came in this morning
Like some old junked out melody
The words she spoke when we awoke still haunt me
What you feel too won't reveal you
Let me steal you from my life

Whoah, the harbour lights of Venus
Shining through the breeze
That brings me back to you my love
To you my love, to you my love

COME AND SEE MY NEW SHOW! [Jul. 11th, 2006|11:03 pm]

Dear one and all,


Just a quick message now that I am able to release specific information re the new musical! These flyers were done in about an hour (I was told at late notice that I had to do them... not that I did the artwork) but all the information is there. It's hard the put in the whole concept of this musical, or any musical (apart from CATS) into a single paragraph so don't judge it purely on the paragraph. There are quite some talented people I've acquired to be in this so it's sure to be a fantastic production. Posters soon to be hanging in a street near you - your support would be unbelievable. I directed this and it's a daunting thing to be doing and I really wish for you all to come! (if you want any of these flyers mailed to you - let me know and my Personal Assisstant will be on it in a jiffy! Haha)








Oh yeah... one last thing... buy tickets to the show!

Love Chris.
