In the Studio with Michael Jackson

In an interview with Access Hollywood, who shadowed Michael Jackson with Will iam, simply being flies on the wall, Michael was asked if this was an exploratory to get back into the music business…Michael replied, “I never stopped.  I’m always writing a potpourri of music, you know, that’s how it is.”

I awakened this morning with many thoughts which connected to Michael’s reply, in my OWN way, minute as it is.  I never stop Michaeling.  And, today, it feels like a potpourri of ideas.  “YOU KNOW, THAT’S HOW IT IS!”  Breathing in the morning air filled with hints of springtime, I created out loud.  The privacy of day’s start offers freedom, the sound of my voice falling only on Little Casey’s ears.  At least, I THINK he was listening.Nordahl

My mind is bursting with things I have learned and am thrilled to share.  So, today, bear with me.  Casey has taught me how to romp and that is what I am going to do. I am an outdoor walker.  Fresh air and movement heal, and, while walking, I have a COME TOGETHER TWOconversation with Michael.  It is one-sided, not having found the gifts Heaven Leigh and Elizabeth Michelle Billeaudeaux possess, but, I do strive to listen.  And sometimes, just sometimes, I hear…the question is answered, “Where is Michael taking me next?”

“Every time I lived my life the way he taught.  Every time I defended him.  Every time I gave to charity, gave food for the homeless, I was being there for him.  I simply miss Michael too much to take solace for very long.  As long as the spirit circle was unbroken, Michael would be protected. I felt it was not only a privilege, but a duty to continue to fight for Michael and never quit.”  E.M. Billeaudeaux  MICHAEL IN MY LIFE

“When you do something and put your whole heart into it, and people don’t recognize its importance yet, realize that what you have created is what is important.  It is part of eternity now.  They will see when they are ready.  You have done your part in the creation.”  Heaven Leigh ANGEL MICHAEL ORACLES

“MUSIC IS TAPESTRY.  IT’S DIFFERENT LAYERS, WEAVING IN AND OUT, AND IF YOU LOOK AT IT IN LAYERS, YOU UNDERSTAND IT BETTER.”  Michael Jacksontii

Layers, like billowing clouds, weave in and out of daily living.  The tapestry of sounds and textures in Michael’s music are metaphors for the sounds and textures of life.  Writing blog articles weaves a magic for me that presents layers.  While listening this month, these layers have appeared:

Having the opportunity to have MICHAELJACKSONCHOSENVOICES.COM included in the first Michael Jackson Online Magazine “What’s REALLY Going ON?”.

Being invited to Co-Host with Heaven Leigh on her VALENTINE’S SPECIAL Blogradio show.

Joining Siren in her efforts to promote Michael’s book of poetry and prose DANCING BEAUTY AGAINTHE DREAM.

Participating in CHILDREN’S INTERNATIONAL PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN.

Participating in MICHAEL JACKSON’S LEGACY CHARITIES.

This potpourri of opportunity has deeply touched my heart and brought me into some of the multi-layered efforts that are happening around the world.  I am honored and PORTRAIT TWOhumbled.  I have dreams of doing more.

“My songs and dances are outlines for God to come in and fill.  I hold out the form…She puts in the sweetness.”  Michael Jackson

Remembering the week where millions of people around the planet tuned into the XXII Olympicshttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LxIy-gUWyjE…the outlines of Michael’s music and dance and style have been filled in by skaters.  Arenas alight with the energy of Michael Jackson.  His music excites and inspires young hat twoOlympians who competed for coveted medals.  Another of Michael’s dreams realized:  “AND MY GOAL IN LIFE IS TO GIVE THE WORLD WHAT I WAS LUCKY TO RECEIVE…THE ECSTASY OF DIVINE UNION THROUGH MY MUSIC AND MY DANCE.”  MJ

The layers in Michael’s tapestries included the magnificent sound, dancing artistry and style, giving Olympic skaters music, dance moves and costume art…MICHAEL’S BODY AS CANVAS…using WEARABLE ART.dangerous three

“MICHAEL’S SYNERGY OF MUSIC AND STYLE WAS PART OF HIS GENIUS.”  Michael Bush KING OF STYLE Dressing Michael Jackson

“As style of his own, Michael Jackson let his outer being expose the kind of positive and incomparable person he was.  Some call his style choices avant-garde…others call them a tour de force.  No one ever called them boring.  His tour gear always proved to be ahead of the curve and his read carpet appearances were always a topic of conversations for those who didn’t even consider themselves to be immersed in the fashion spectrum.  Michael Jackson dressed like a man prepared to fight a fashion war and come out victorious.”  FASHION CELEBRATION ON MICHAEL’S 53RD BIRTHDAY FASHION ARTICLE.  HONORING HIS BORN DAY

Is it any wonder, Olympic skaters choose Michael’s art…exciting, beautiful, cutting edge, sound-perfect, MAGIC!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8gqh39otSQ&list=PLD4C3CD6D5F2C6F27criminal

My romping is coming to an end.  Hope I haven’t left you behind in a muddle.  Layers and textures, especially those created by an unparalleled genius, take time to comprehend.  The wondrous thing about this medium is that we can revisit the entire spectrum of Michael’s art whenever we choose…over and over and over.  The more we learn, the more we want to learn.  It is an adventure worth taking multiple times.MOTOWN 25

Thank you for coming along today.  I hope you were inspired to visit and revisit Michael’s art.  I love you.
