Just wanted to do a chit chat update with you all about what’s been happening. I haven’t quit music, I am just catching up on living life.
I wrote a blog post detailing a bit more of what I have been going through since moving to East Africa and you can read that here: http://natalie-brown.com/food-is-more-important-than-music/
Hi! I’m Nat, and my mission is to inspire you to pursue your dreams and passions and enjoy life’s moments. Join me as I vlog from Uganda in Africa and we explore East Africa, life, happiness, music, food and adventure together. I create weekly videos from my heart to yours, and I would love you to join me by subscribing to my channel.
Lately I have been enjoying making food more than making music. I had to think about that and I realized a few things. Will you indulge me in my heart spilling in a stream of consciousness to whoever might take the time to read it?
Once upon a time, back when I first started to make music, it wasn’t the ‘norm’… there weren’t all the tools available to do it like there are now and basically only actual musicians could make records. Making those records was a really special thing to do and when you put a record out people enjoyed it. They didn’t (always) rip them apart like you were someone on American Idol to be ‘judged’. They just bought the record, enjoyed it and sometimes let you know if they liked a song and told you what it meant to them. That felt so good. Me giving a piece of my soul to strangers and them loving it, feeding from it to sustain thier souls. This is why I make music. To feed a soul. Today, when I bake something or make a meal and I share that food with someone I feel like they enjoy it. I feel like that food made a difference to them in their day and it gives me such immense pleasure to feed someone and know they have enjoyed it.
