We video- song and 2012 year review

Friday, December 28th, 2012 - General, Videos

2012 has been a huge year. The world of Meri Amber has only been on show for a relatively short period, but so much has happened in that time it’s mindblowing. To cap off the year, I’ve made a video/photo-slideshow that looks into many of the happenings that went on in the year and gives a small peek into what’s going to be released next year.

The main thing about everything is that it wouldn’t have happened without the people in my life that love and support me. From my family, boyfriend and friends, to everyone I’ve met along the way that has gone out of their way to follow my progress and encourage me. Thank you.

As something sweet and special I’m planning to make a short slideshow video that reviews 2012 with this song in the background. It’s a song I wrote and recorded today called “We” which comprises of some basic maths (You + I = We) and looks at how love and time passing interact and weave through each other. Here are the lyrics:

There was a you and there was an I
At the very start
You drew pictures and gazed at stars
While I played guitar

But seasons fled
Ducked below the sea
And in a year
You and me became we
Time moves on
That’s it’s industry
But you and I
Still stay we

There was a you and there was an I
Trading sticks and sparks
You showed me how to knead bread
While I showed you how to plait lucky charms

And seasons fled
Ducked below the sea
In that year
You and me became we
Time moves on
That’s it’s industry
But you and I
Still stay we

There was a you, there was an I
Many bread rolls past
Reflected in the windscreens of
The traffic streaking past

As seasons fled
Ducked below the sea
In the years since
You and me became we
Time moves on
That’s it’s industry
But you and I
Still stay we
But you and I
Still stay we

Merry Christmas

To celebrate Christmas here is an edited calligraphy christmas card. This one uses award winning satellite pictures (which have been edited to a point where its rather difficult to discern the exact location… Kamchatka Peninsula) in the background. I also used a thin fountain pen and did the colouring myself on watercolour paper so you can see a bit of ink spreading through the tiny cracks of the page.
