I love to frame things and I’m crazy about cropping. Here are some of my recently harvested crops.

 


Who? The second lyric video from Woodland Echoes we uploaded to YouTube today. I wrote the lyrics when I didn't know the answer to the question and the music when I did - it all happened through a process of doing and becoming. Ask and you shall receive... maybe not right away and sometimes it takes years. My fiancée and I used to live in a little cottage in the country near a pub called The Crooked Billet. Every Friday and Saturday night during the summer we’d hear gypsy jazz drifting over the fields. This is tipping my hat to that sound. I worked on it with my old friend and jazz fanatic, Phil Taylor, and he really pushed me as a musician and helped produce some of the best work on Woodland Echoes. I love his BVs here. We would usually spend most of the day with tea and cakes and talking about anything but music before we start work. This is how I create. Most of the recording time is setting up the atmosphere for the gushing to happen. #NickHeyward #WoodlandEchoes #NaturePop #LyricVideo #Who ...

Today's Woodland Echoes' 3rd anniversary and to celebrate we've re-opened the webshop at NickHeyward.com and uploaded two new lyric videos to YouTube. Here's a snippet of the first - Beautiful Morning. For me, this song is the gentle unfolding of the day and waking up in nature. #NickHeyward #WoodlandEchoes #NaturePop #LyricVideo #BeautifulMorning ...

Made it over the driveway. Negotiated the sprinkler system and fought off a wren, a lizard and a strimmer to get here. This is Elysian, also known as The Ten Wild Flowers. I’m going to stay here tonight. Anyway, thought I’d share this with you as I guess most of you enjoy observing adventure, I know I do 🐜💨 ...

Do you like my mask? Actually, lovely turmeric latte! God, it feels good to be out the house. Cheers! ☕️ ...

Mow your shed light. Tag a bunch of opening obstacles. Tape what happens. A rumble of earthiness. Years of being involved. Yes is a good idea. No is a big difference. Togetherness. Olaf Himalayas and the morning marinade. Tides of open hearted people. Power update. Atoned tree for you and me. Oily leaves and the fragrant caribou. Making up a new river of circumstances beyond our control. Whatever the pump said was right. A bright and happy feeling beneath the ridiculous size of your hope. In other words, three cushions on a chair in the lounge 🪑 ...

Have a wonderful week. Keep that halter neck and loincloth taut and those shoulders nice and loose. Cheers ☕️ ...

I once saw a coyote turn around and acknowledge my presence before calmly entering this clump of trees. I always check to see if he’s/she’s there when I cycle by, just in case. “Do what is best - even if it is difficult” #coyote #tedandrewsanimalspeak #pocketguide ...

Thank you! The impersonation account has gone 👍🏽 Grandma is still alive and licking, though. She’s flat out on the patio thinking of midnight, falling in love and watching the rain fall. Clever thing. ...

Got a lovely egg shaker with Carlos Santana’s wise words on it today. My choruses are going to get moving and grooving. Hatch baby, hatch! 🖤 ...

We replaced the fill valve on our toilet yesterday. The information’s all out there now isn’t it. From drum tuning to plumbing tips. Handy. $8.00 for the part 👍🏽 #allhandstothepump #teamwork ...

Got my kit into the car! “I told a girl I can start right away. And she said, "listen, babe, I got something to say. I got no car and it's breaking my heart. But I've found a driver and that's a start.” #recording #songwriting #drums #newrhythms #beatleslyrics #rocknroll ...

Use the winds of change to power your view of life. Utilise and vitalise. Surprise yourself again and again. Well, that’s what a local spider told me this morning. I thought they’d died but they were just lying LOW like Bowie in Berlin towards the end of the 70’s. I love that about some creatures. They know just how to survive 🙌🏽 #amarsadayhelpsyouworkrestandplay #spidersfrommars #beckenhamplacepark ...

Raw confidence, charisma and zero arrogance. Excellent beings! ...
