Dear Edwyn, I have read a lot about your remarkable recovery and watched the documentary a few weeks ago....it was incredible to see you singing again. My neice, Ruby who is now 6, had heart attack last year and due to the oxygen supply to her brain being cut off for a prolonged period she now has quite severe brain injuries. She is currently at Tadworth rehabilitation centre going through intensive rehab. Her parents are both musical and they are pinning their hopes on music helping her to recover speech. It would mean a lot to them if you could send them a comment wishing them well on their long journey. They have set up a website..one4ruby.com . I know they would be very excited to hear from you as you own recovery gives them reason to be optimistic . The parents names are Simon and Cath....

For anyone else reading thepost,please check out the website....and leave a comment. They are having an on line auction of some pretty decent art work this week, finishes on Friday evening....please take a look and wish them well.

Thank you very much and all the best with music...it's sounding potent!

To all the sick people ...

When you´re down and out, it seems there is no light at all. Edwyn may inspire you, having mastered a hard hard way, back to life- "home again". Be thankful for every little step you can do, be careful with yourselves and never leave an occasion to smile at someone you love or who loves you.

 

To Ruby and her parents: "hope and despair" are desperate sisters, I only can imagine what you feel. fighting against cancer for the last three years is a hard hard job, the same as yours. Get well, Ruby, be strong and proud if you make it. Each day is a gift.

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review



A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue
