Goodbye Feet

I’ve written many foot-songs that went on all kinds of journeys over the years.
There is one beauty I find in feet: you have to balance yourself on top of them. You can only occupy one space at a time. Not even zoom can change that!
Some people’s feet are made for resting others for seeing the world and even for staying restless. This is what makes us unique.
Don’t die with the music still inside you OR the journey still left to be walked with your feet. Oh the places you’ll see and the people you will meet.
You can not always pick who you journey with but you yourself can choose to be the best companion to journey with.
To me? I love seeing new places but what I love more is coming home.

I am working on a new release that is not quite ready yet: COVID is extending timelines a bit but in the meantime I will share my ‘Stinky feet’ song.

Too soon an angel-Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire youtu.be/sxamNsIOdrU

Too Soon an Angel
lyrics @SaltyJohn

Verse 1
You didn’t get to go on safari
Or gallop a horse on the beach
You didn’t sit and sip a Campari
Hopping round the islands of Greece.

Verse 2
You didn’t see the Pyramids at Giza
Or sail on a boat down the Nile
Marvel at the tomb of Tutankhamun
And the Sphynx’s inscrutable smile

Chorus
‘Cos, you were too soon an angel and angels don’t do those things
You were too, too soon an angel, golden halo and beautiful wings

Verse 3
You never saw a sunset in motion
The night time enfolding the day
As the sun melts into the ocean
And all the stars come out to play

Bridge:
I long to have shown you my world
Before you slipped away into yours

Chorus
But, you were too soon an angel, and angels don’t do those things
You were too, too soon an angel, golden halo and beautiful wings

Outro
I’ll do all these things without you
And pretend you’re there by my side
And I’ll turn to you and I’ll tell you
I’m glad you’re along for the ride

Wired for success

Plug it in. I thought the ideal would be to go ‘wireless’ but then I discovered thick walls and batteries running flat faster than I can keep on charging devices. Moving office furniture around to make sure I am positioned well to catch what is out there: waves and megabytes.
Not quite the freedom you think technology would add to your life, eh? Doing things sooner and faster brings in more clutter and then it makes one wonder about the old art of arriving and knocking on somebody’s door…
Even if you are wired -to a charger
Or wireless- to wifi
Being connected to a room is never as wonderful as being connected to humans.
You-Mans.
Success can be forever evolving in they price your willing to pay for it, give up for it, value it and what it is you value… as success. It changes and evolves over time and fluctuates in the company you are in: boardrooms and ‘bored’rooms.
COVID has brought a lot of new vision on old things. I watch the traffic jams grow back to ‘normal lengths’ on my way home and wonder how people have changed? What I see is happier people being more thankful for the opportunity to connect over and elbow handshake and doing their best for that movement.

People don’t run out of batteries but they do run out of love, hugs and conversation. Lucky that is an easy one to fix: pick up the phone, listen and just be there. Lonely unheard people are hurting people and that is when they need to wire up for success so nobody will notice the disconnect.

The Secret of my success -Marthie Nel Hauptfleisch-Woman On Fire youtu.be/cqnfzPuG8Xc

The Secret of my Success
lyrics @coolparadiso

V I might not be the best there is
Nor every skill possess
But I’m sure don’t lack the confidence
Thats the secret of my success

V They tell me what i cant do
I leave them all to guess
Ill do it my way anyway
Thats the secret of my success

C I wont ever let them get me down
I’ll continue to progress
Im bold and strong and confident
Thats the secret of my success

V if i believed all that i read
Or even acquiesce
But i believe in my own strength
Thats the secret of my success

Instrumental

V Im self contained and confident
All issues i’ll address
I take all problems head on
Thats the secret of my success

C I wont ever let them get me down
I’ll continue to progress
Im bold and strong and confident
Thats the secret of my success

V I don’t keep things inside of me
My feeling i Express
I tell people how i feel
Thats the secret of my success

V Im happy being who i am
I better not digress
Im i want to fight the good fight
Thats the secret of my success

There will come a storm

I studied birth order, I studied sibling rivalry: the natural next would be relationships: Adam & Eve stuff. I dunno maybe I should have started there…How to make marriage work.

Well I came across Dr. John Gottman and what he says(and studied) makes sense. It is really very simple: be friends first and continuously… 69% of issues are existing and unresolvable in every relationship: it’s the friendship and positivity(5:1) that makes or breaks the relationship.

And then there are the four apocalypse horsemen…indicators you should fix something fast or you are heading for disaster in your marriage.

I would recommend this talk of his you can watch on youtube ‘Making Marriage Work’ youtu.be/AKTyPgwfPgg

Oh and he has a cool app you can download ‘Card Decks’ to help you start some conversations(instead of dwelling on old ‘issues’) People don’t ask enough questions these days. Who knew?

You can join me on Mondays before eight am for Mondays With Marthie- I am busy sharing my insights on LinkedIn. And I’ll tell you a secret: it’s all about friendships. #BigSecret.
Don’t be stingy with your love: it is THE currency that will change your/the world!

THERE WILL COME A STORM

Words & Music By Jerry Pettit

Is there anything more lovely
Than love at first sight?
With that first infatuation,
Doesn’t everything seem right?
And you hope it lasts forever,
But it never really does.
Every time there comes a challenge,
Completely changes how it was.

CHORUS:
THERE WILL COME A STORM.
You will have no warning,
But the clouds will form,
Block the sun next morning.
Can you both conform?
Keep each other warm?
Because I promise you someday,
THERE WILL COME A STORM.

It’s how we learn what is worth keeping,
To separate the wheat from chaff.
Assess the missteps in life’s journey,
Learn when to cry and when to laugh.
Sometimes life is one big party,
Sometimes life’s a vale of tears.
Important not to be complacent.
The challenge comes every few years.

CHORUS:
THERE WILL COME A STORM.
You will have no warning,
But the clouds will form,
Block the sun next morning.
Can you both conform?
Keep each other warm?
Because I promise you someday,
THERE WILL COME A STORM.

GUITAR SOLO

There’s a reason they’re called “Golden”,
Those years when all the storms subside.
When you have gained some hard-earned wisdom.
You handle little storms in stride.
It’s time to reach out to your partner,
And take her hand inside your own.
For soon enough, you must release her.
That final storm you’ll face alone.

CHORUS:
THERE WILL COME A STORM.
You will have no warning,
But the clouds will form,
Block the sun next morning.
Can you both conform?
Keep each other warm?
Because I promise you someday,
THERE WILL COME A STORM.

LinkedIn and spending a night in jail

I am not sure if I was ever meant to fit in a square but if you think about it a cellphone is a rectangle and so is your final box. Now the question is how are you going to stand out the rest of the time…In real relationships and keep yourself out of trouble?

Sunday I spend the night in jail.. LinkeInjail. I overdid it: after COVID(or should I say the tail-end of COVID and getting to used to sitting around) I am keen to show how I fit in square living again. Gone are everyday’s mountain walks, back to the reality of traffic jams (gotto love those!) and grocery store queues…. SO I thought I would give LinkedIn a try(after a recommendation I got from my cousin who has just arrived in Yale, USA to study engineering).

I watched a couple of videos and I was on my way connecting with people in my industries: from nursing(Friday), singing(Saturday), Songwriting(Sunday) and then BAM! just like that the door slammed closed behind me #JailTime(I was carrying on too industriously)

One thing that jail time does to you: it teaches you to actively watch the door in anticipation. Luckily I was locked out in North American time and was set free during the night sleeping in Africa! Now I am back at playing Linked-LinkedIn again. If your work is not playing you are in the wrong profession, I think…

Now I am back: Monday’s job was updating my profile with the 18 tips Nathaniel set out (www.bibbyconsultinggroup.com.au/wp-content/uploads/ if you want to do the same) Hey you can jump in and join me: let me know what skill I can recommend you for: everybody needs a helping hand in these uncertain times.(You can use the QR code above or use this link to see my interpretation of the 18 pointers… www.linkedin.com/in/woman-on-fire-marthie-nel-hauptfleisch)

Rise Up and Praise youtu.be/GkIZCcUCWtY

©️ 2020 Cindy Prince

1. To the least of us
To the best of us
To the largest ones
To the smallest ones

Pre-chorus: God sees everything
In gratitude we sing

Chorus
Rise up, Rise up and praise
I lift- my heart in song
All day and all night long
Praise God in every way!

Bridge
God knows my heart,
He knows my soul
takes care of me
and my trouble
God is always there
God will always care

2. To the newborn child
To the old aged mind
To the needy ones
To the giving ones

Pre-chorus: God sees everything
In gratitude we sing

The Procrastinator: Born for a Monday

I recently made a study on what effect it would have on a child to sit next to all the suitcases in the boot of the car when going on a holiday(no sitting-room at the front). The fourth child. Never-mind being born 16 weeks early and spending my first days/weeks/months in an incubator.

I found some interesting stuff I thought might interest you about birth order…

Child #1 is the CEO(does not like conflict, earns more money, earns more than the rest and has a higher IQ- more attention from mom and dad…)
Child #2 is the Rebel(is opposite and opposes everything #1 does and raising children in their house is like raising little Frankensteins questioning everything especially authority)
Child #3 is the Humanitarian(he wants things to be fair for everybody and has a big circle of friends outside the house, wants to be liked by their own children)
Child #4 is the Clown.(great entertainer, overachiever, likes to be taken care of/delegate, can sell you a soap and are much liked by their children and sees it as another opportunity to play)
#Only Child is Independent and can either be the jewel child(special because it was the only child possible: spoilt with good manners) or planned(only child planned: in this case the child is raised as a mini-adult from the start.

Now I am checking in with everybody to see where they ‘fit in’. (Note: the child-set must be in a 5-7 timeframe: if there are bigger gaps in-between children there might be more then one ‘sets’ of children changing the numbering)
To me this significant in understanding myself better and exploring new wats to engage with people to work better together: e.g. I might be able to sell a soap as #4 but I need a #1 to get somebody to sign on the dotted line and hand over the money!
The most entertaining video I found on this was this one(an hour well spent…) bit.ly/33fS5p9

Let me know what your sibling position number is- who knows maybe you need a soap-seller for your Monday products I can help you with.

Link below will take you there…
>Foot Care as usual: weekdays, home visits.
>Song of the week is a Tao Te Ching Verse #12. It is from the book of wisdom by Lao Tzu. I wanted to listen to it often while walking but kept falling asleep so decided to put it to music with better results…

Tao Te Ching Verse 12 bit.ly/357VQiJ

The five colors blind the eye
The five tones deafen the ear
The five flavors dull the palate
Racing, hunting, and galloping about
Only to disturb the mind
Wasting energy to obtain rare objects
Only impedes one’s growth

So the Sage is led by his inner truth
And not his outer eye
He holds to what is deep
And not what lies on the surface

I heard about your problem

It’s a pain…
Here is my version of how the World works
You try to impress the world with your best : I named that being in ‘peacock-feather strutting mode’ or in short the peacockfeather-stratosphere: the orbit you live your world in(pouveerstratosfeer) But this creates problems because you are to far from your base and being authentic to uour true self attaching to anyone and everything because… pigs like us are not meant to be flying like that…

Best is to be a pig: a fat enough one that when it’s belly drags along on earth it hurts and you can stop to pay attention and investigate. The people around you are sniffing distance and hopefully can provide a tasty meal. (Only skinny pigs can fly.)

Shrek’s Fiona comes to mind: you know the heroine who turns into an ogre at night and during the day is a beautiful princess. Well I have come to the conclusion that ‘being me’ is not that bad after all and I am having fun in all the mudholes.
Question is: where are you hurting or should I say where is your belly dragging on the tar-road? Once you start paying attention you don’t have to run after the addiction of your choice: religion, work, busy being busy, dependent relationships(cling-on), alcohol, drugs and just being plain nasty because you never got a chance to be yourself.
Problems and pains should be sniffed out timeously and snuffed before they become ulcers, cancers, addictions of sorts.

Dr.Gabe Maté says he reads obituaries to find out what killed them: being too nice and not saying no comes up frequently. (he specializes in end of life care and addictions) Here is one interview I liked youtu.be/H9B5mYfBPlY

Have a very belly nice day!(Mag jou maag so op die grond sleep dat jy dit agterkom/ may your belly drag on the ground in a way you take notice)

C2. the song of your soul
the depth of your touch
the love you shared
and your kiss

V2. when the storms come
when the rain falls

C1. the grace of your thoughts
the warmth of your heart

B. I miss you more than you can know
more than I can show
I am sorry I needed to go
I am sorry I left you so

C2. the song of your soul

and your kiss… I miss

Burnout and shedding the ashes

I think it was about 2 and a half years ago when I realized I was burned out. It’s when you climb a hill/the stairs and you have to rest ever couple of steps. Your mind is driven and you are already days ahead into the future but your body wants to stay and rest for a while on the next step right here in front of you.
So then you take that step and the next one. And you wait. It takes up to 18 months for your body to recover and restock on the depleted hormones: a made a study of it at one stage, forgotten most of it but I’ll tell you the bottomline:
There is an other side of burnout: one where you travel light, decide what you want to pick up to carry with you on your journey and what makes your light shine the brightest.
(and then COVID helps you strip the rest away) That burn and urgency you feel, not to die with the music still in you. Your music. That doodle that makes you peculiarly you and special because nobody else has got your brand of crazy written all over their life like you!
When you give yourself permission to be your own kind of crazy(and change the World for the better with it because that was the masterplan in the first place!) you also give the next person permission to be their own kind of crazy. And do we shine!

I’m on the other side of burnout. I’m here: me, my mind and my body: on this one spot aiming for the next step and eyeballing the future ahead. I am hearing voices of people who wants me to tell their stories and wrap it up in 3 minute music mp3’s, children’s stories, radio dramas, plays, books: it’s like living with a village of ideas: some uglier/prettier/weirder than others but I hear them and I don’t need pills for them- just a pen or a computer keyboard!

I’ll introduce you to some below…

I would love to hear what YOUR crazy village looks like #FunnyBunch!

Enlightened and Restored
© 2020 Cindy Prince

I’m restored with my bare feet in the grass
I’m restored seeing a selfless act
I’m restored when I know all the facts
I’m restored

I’m enlightened in a meditative state
I’m enlightened knowing no hate
I’m enlightened standing at heaven’s gate
I’m enlightened

Chorus
I’m enlightened and restored
When hearts are open wide
I’m healing and renewed
When all my tears have dried
I’m enlightened and restored
When I’m in the wild outside
Enlightened and restored
Once more

I’m healing when I have a restful sleep
I’m healing when I have treasure to keep
I’m healing when I know my love is so deep
I’m healing

I’m renewed with the touch of a child
I’m renewed when I let myself be wild
I’m renewed and often beguiled
I’m renewed

Repeat chorus

A Spoon full of Sugar

You may be born with the golden spoon in your mouth. You can go without a knife and a fork but a spoon is different. You can also get out your pocket knife…

I recently became aware of a hobby I have never heard of before. I was attending my monthly Zoom meeting at Toastmasters. I was quite excited because I was doing my last speech in my Leadership pathway- and what a pathway it was! It’s true what Nelson Mandela said: It always seems impossible until it’s done… well I thought I was done but since discovered I still have to do the #FinalSpeech: the speech about all the speeches I have done on my pathway🤣. Man, I am learning patience…!

Anyway the hobby I learned about is #SpoonCarving! It turns out to be quite an art and practiced by many people! Who knew…

Now that is why I like Toastmasters and the people I meet there and the new things I learn from those people- also busy on their neverending pathways of speeches finding the end of their journeys and sharing it with fellow-travellers like me! That is a- heaped-spoon full of sugar to share in your next dinner conversation!

Now a spoon is an interesting thing. You can feed people with it and be fed with it. It can become a symbol of both power and serving. I’ll leave you with the story I heard about Heaven and Hell: both have a big pot of soup and long spoons. A bunch of people are huddled around the pot but in the one people are well fed because they feed each other where in the latter they go hungry because on their own they can’t manage to let the utensil reach their own lips to be fed.

Maybe it’s time we all become #Spooncarvers and #Spoonmasters! Let me know if you are interested and you can join in with our next Toastmasters Zoom meeting(and I hope- my last pathway speech!) and I will connect you with the right spooned people…

Saam met jou, Saam met jou
wil ek lepellê…

3. Waar sal ek dan

As jou koffie in die bed

Jy is lief vir my
Beskerm my teen die lewe

All you have to do is ring the bell

This passed on message made me think: would you live life differently after you ring the bell? OR does somebody you know have to ring the bell for you because you were missing out on something you did not know you still have: #Life

“Interesting history: in England the local folks started running out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized they had been burying people alive, so they would tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night (the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone could be, saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer.

Now, whoever said History was boring?”

Remember to ring the bell, celebrate more, make the phone-call, give the time, treasure the moment. It’s really not complicated… to me the point is: once you get out of that coffin- don’t drag it around with you. If you are still here- there must be a very good reason for it… so #RingTheBell often and LOUD.

>In the picture is moss: the only living thing that thrives being single…
>Busy with #FiftyNinety (50 songs in 90 days) You can check out the songs for 2020 so far here bit.ly/3gUfxNH
>The button below leads to a playlist of songs I cowrote with Elizabeth Petty(USA) – we always have fun knocking on each others creative windows! I guess knocking is almost as good as ringing a bell…
>song of the week: ‘I see a dead man walking’- it’s a song I wrote one morning while it was still dark driving my children to school: somebody was crossing the busy road. And that made me think: if you were well ‘a dead man walking’ -what would you fear because death was crossed off the list… and then things came up like being alone and missing out or not enjoying life while you still had the opportunity. My favorite part is where he knocks on your window…

I see a dead man walking

V1. I see a dead man walking
He is afraid
But not of dying
But of staying too long
in the land of the living dead

V2. I see a dead man standing
He is afraid
But not of dying
But of being forgotten
By the ones that he loved.

V3. I see a dead man running
He is afraid
But not of dying
But of being left behind
Of being alone.
instr
V4. I see a dead man singing.
Is he afraid?
Shaking doors and windows
A shadow with knees.
A phantom that sees in the dead of night.

V5. I see a dead man smiling
He’s looking at me
He’s looking so happy
I guess he doesnt see
No, he doesnt know.

I say: “Deadman,
What are you waiting for?
Can I help you search for something.
This ain’t your life no more
This ain’t your life no more”
But he kept on mumbling
Or was it the wind in the trees
It might have been nothing
Or was it just the shadow me?
Or was it just the shadow me?

V6. Who is the dead man walking?
Just crossing the street
I guess you never know the ending
Of the road that you’ll meet
When the Final Whistle blows
(Whistle)

Ascending the mountain again

Because you forgot to look up- to spot the waterfall.
Later walking up to see it close up. It is actually easy climbing a mountain- if you do it one step at a time- the big rocks help.

Recently I thought how can sitting in a lockdown be progress? Then I remembered Canada and all the famous waterways- the preferred way to travel for the longest time.

Ferry transport! That is when you park your car – go and relax, read the newspaper, drink more coffee and croissants then you should(if they are not sold out). Sleep. Rest. Eat. Repeat… and before you know it you have reached the shore if the new destination you were looking forward to… The hard work is starting your car and waiting for the green light to get off the ramp to exit the ferry.

There you have it: progress while sitting down… another way of ‘sitting while making progress’ scenario would be locks (what if Covid is a water level changer?) You can watch cool video I found to demonstrate how ppl do this daily… The Story of The Bingley Five Rise Locks youtu.be/LoRViEty75c

Somebody once said when you are going through a tunnel you don’t get off the train- you trust the driver to get you to your destination.(see another ‘sitting and making progress’ scenario…)

Always Rejoice

Chorus: Always rejoice
Always pray
Always give thanks
In all circumstance- For He is
Always your God- And this is
Always Gods will for you
in Jesus, in Jesus Christ

V1. Give your all
Your all is worthy
To the God who gave His son
to save your life
Give your all
Your all is worthy
Your heart is all He wants
Your am body, mind and soul

Bridge: Life will come and bring you days of sorrow
Life will come and bring a broken heart
Life will come and catch you unprepared for this moment
Life will come steal away your joy

V2. But don’t dis pair
Your God will be there.
There’s no way
He’ll leave your day
And He will find you
in this moment
And He will teach your feet the way to go
His hands will carry you
