Imagery of a giant stone cross, an enormous container ship sailing out to sea, a huge gurgling harbour, and a 20 tonne anchor create an unusual backdrop for the story of a little green pea. Cowboy boots in seaweed, frozen food confetti tosses, sunsets on the ocean, and even a tiny Moon seem to ask in unison, "When it comes to love, when will my ship come in?" This is possibly Mackenzie MacBride at her most wavy gravy.
"Aren't you just like McDonny's red boxed, baked apple pie,
You've been around forever but you burn me every time."

Reasons for My Music Diary:
1. Listening to music can be a joy.
2. Listening can be an active or a passive experience. In my ongoing efforts to, "be in this moment" I've decided to write about the music I'm listening to, so I can make sure I'm really, "paying attention" as I listen.
3. I worked with a piano teacher who kept a blog of the various music he listened to. I thought he was quite nifty for diligently writing down what sound waves vibrated in his ear drums.
4. I met a theatre graduate who told me he is too embittered by the theatre scene (likely understandably so) to attend plays. His comment really resonated with me. Over the years my own bitterness about the music scene in Canada (again, likely understandably so) had grown to the point that I could barely listen to other indie artists' music. It was time to at least try to change that, because, as noted above, listening to music can be a joy.
