What does it take for the Individual to achieve their Higher Self? This is a question asked of the listener of Candle’s latest studio album Vibrations, released today on Layaway Records. Written in February 2014 as part of the annual online song writing challenge February Album Writing Month (www.fawm.org), Candle’s sixth studio album is the result of a new method of composing music.

My timeline for the mastering & final delivery of the new Candle studio album, Vibrations, has stagnated. To be honest, I have not even contemplated working on it for over a month now. Well, that is not entirely true: fleeting thoughts have momentarily floated through my consciousness, reminding me of the unfinished work I have yet to complete in this regard. But beyond these small reminders that have yet to be acted upon, my mind & my energies have been directed at other pursuits.
Such is the fickleness of human attention.
I am constantly blaming the mundane for the distractions in my life – an assement which is a bit of a crutch. It is an easy out in my mind. An old, well worn tool that passifies any anxieties I feel. I can simply blame the world & its demands upon me for keeping me from doing the things I know I need to achieve. And this goes beyond the performance & creation of my music. It applies to all aspects of my complex & multi-faceted life. The mundane is my scapegoat. One I constantly call upon when I do not wish to look at the deeper causes of my own stagnation.
Today is the last day of a three day “weekend” (I am currently working nights & weekends at work, so my “weekend” happens mid-week) thanks to Remembrance Day. Though I have ticked off some of the items on my To Do List, there is much I did not achieve. One of these items is continuing to Master Vibrations. Well, fear not loyal Candle Fans & other followers of my unique musings: I am going into my studio after lunch & dedicating the afternoon to working on Vibrations. It is high time that I finish this project that started in February. It is time to be ready to release the album to the world. It is time, indeed – it is Truly time.
