“It’s the way of the world, or maybe it’s just me… I only survive when I love relentlessly”
~ Cindy Alexander
The word “Survivor” comes up a lot in a my life. Usually other people introduce me that way and at first, it felt so awkward. Then I owned it. And now, I’m kind of over it. Any of us who wakes up on January 1, 2017 SURVIVED 2016. We have all overcome obstacles, whether they be physical, emotional, psychological, or spiritual. So in essence, we are all survivors. But I really want to go into 2017 as so much more. Surviving implies a battle against the odds. I’m much more than surviving. I’m thriving. I’m living and loving and manifesting my dreams. Yeah, I have my moments that aren’t so blissful. But underneath the hurt, frustration or anger is always the knowledge that I am blessed. I am surrounded by an incredible support system that includes a loving family, loyal friends, genius professionals and creative soul mates. I am happy to say goodbye to 2016, but I take with me immense gratitude that only grows deeper. Wishing you all a Healthy and Happy New Year full of peace ~ in your hearts and in the world, prosperity and beautiful music. Love, Cindy
The release of a cd is like the birth of a child. “Wait!” you say…”You’re a Mom. How can you say that!?” Why, because I’m a Mom. Because the miracle of creating something out of nothing takes different forms. Sometimes it’s human, sometimes it’s art. Sometimes it’s magic, and sometimes it’s crafted from the mind, the heart and the soul. A child is all that – human and art, magic, mind, heart and soul. Music is not human, but it can allow us to find and feel our humanity. Both can renew our faith.
This has been a year of tremendous loss, felt throughout the world as we watch one tragedy after another. To everyone touched by the recent devastating events (and I can’t imagine anyone hasn’t been), I believe that it’s a collective heart that’s been broken. We can pick up the pieces together, and carry on. All I need to do is look in my children’s eyes and know – we don’t have a choice.
“Fading out and falling away
On the path of least resistance
Day by day by day
We can change it if we try”
(From “Path of Least Resistance” by Colin Devlin/Cindy Alexander – off the new record Deep Waters)
Throughout my life, I have used music to heal, to transform, and to connect. I am so blessed to be able to make music, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to share it with you.
