War commemorations
on: October 14, 2017, 17:17:48
Hey guys and gals,

I know I've been kinda MIA for a while, but goatie lured me back onto the forum this week :)
Haven't been playing a lot lately (very busy with work, moving houses,...), let alone writing sons. But I have been making a lot of photo's, mainly for work.
This one is one I am quite proud of.
Was at the rehearsals for a big war commemoration in Ypres tonight. Rehearsals were yesterday. It's this thing where they tell the story of the centenary of Passchendaele, the third battle of Ypres. 450.000 people died, 12.000 of which are buried at Tyne Cot in Passendale. All the graves had a burning candle on top of them, at dusk. There was a choir singing, lettres read and of course the Last Post.
Thought I'd share this one with you.
If nothing else, at least you'll know I'm still alive  ;)

Haha, @Dutchbeat  you coming to my Antwerp gig was a pleasant surprise, don't worry. Nothing to do with the musical/forum break.
Just spare time is hard to find these days.
I am however going to try to get more time for music again. Hearing how some of you still listen to my songs does motivate me TBH.
Not today though. A Sunday of work, phonecalls, ironing... One big feast! :p

Hi @siennalittle , always a pleasure indeed, ironing  ;D ;D ;D

and yes, Real life can seriously get in the way of our passion for songwriting  :P :P :P....

and indeed, you really have a gift for making extremely strong songs, in my opinion

once in a while one of your songs pops up in my head spontaneously.....and it has happened, that i have been thinking: who made that song i am hearing in my head now? is it something from K's choice?.... and then i realize it a song from you  ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb:: ::thumb::...which is a good sign about how 'hooky'  many of your melodies are, in my opinion

great to hear again from you  :) :) :)
