Balearic Breakfast | Episode 138 | We out here...

Updated: Jul 12, 2023

Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy broadcast the 138th episode of Balearic Breakfast on her Mixcloud and Twitch TV socials on July 11th 2023.


 

Introduction. – They say that things happen for a reason. They also say that life has a master plan; they say that God closes some of life’s doors for you so you can access better ones, later. They also say that no one can stop you from achieving what destiny has put aside for you. They say "Amor Fati" and "Murphy’s law". That’s ok, and I really start to believe these words. But what they don’t stress enough on, to me, is how all of this should happen. Destiny should not always be a “Via Crucis” where you would have to Prove Something to Someone to get the recognition that should be naturally unfurled for you. We All deserve recognition, every one of us, even the ones who are having a tough life.

Lately, I felt how much violence there was in our lives (be it the verbal one or even the unspoken, the psychological one) and I felt tired of being often reminded how I should behave or what I should do to get recognition. As a matter of fact, no one should be judged or told what he should be like in order to get respect or recognition. People should first try to understand each other, talk together and work together, improving things, on an objective basis which should be the Person, as a whole. Each one of us is his own little creation, made from life's events and nobody should bear anybody else's subjective cross. Before saying to someone "you should do this or you should have behaved that way", we all should understand why a certain situation happened, and work our way out, together, using respect and Recognition of our capabilities, from the very start, as an objective basis attached to our person...

We need openness in our lives; without that, we cannot go on. We can’t keep on judging, or criticising. Enough. We must take things as they come: “Be kind for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.” So don’t talk crap, don’t make fun of anyone, stop telling people what they ought to be. Support everyone with the Love you are supposedly searching for; Feel every person, and you will be rewarded in return… Know that we are out here... Just as naked as you are...

 

About the show. – First, the Music got me. I felt its openness very quickly. Something I have never felt before. Of course, being there with the Family under our Captain’s musical commandment was a purely magical moment, as always. But still, there was something as Music kept on telling me its stories about "finding togetherness"... A lot of the tracks played during this 138th edition of Balearic Breakfast had that "Big Picture" of people joining together, dancing together, taking chances...

So as we were all talking about the songs on the chat, experiencing the Family’s power once again, I said to myself, “One more time, life has a master plan”… and it got confirmed later when I saw Colleen’s picture on Instagram. Lastly, Musical News of the moment, with the "We out here" festival soon happening and events already starting on Worldwide FM (click here and here for more information), helped me in choosing this blog's post title!


Listen back to the 138th edition of Balearic Breakfast :

 

Events. – Colleen will be playing the forthcoming shows soon :

 

The Wow effect. – I think I should change this section's name (laughs), lately, it seems the WOW effect is on Stereo Mode! This Time, and the Chat was a good proof of the emotions we all went through when the tracks got played by Colleen, two tracks got very well received by the Balearic Breakfast Family: Toshio Matsuura Group's "I Am the Black Gold of the Sun" and Skipworth & Turner "Thinking About Your Love".

On a more personal level, I must admit that John Grant's "Pale Green Ghosts" was a great musical journey, one I never heard of before!
