Yes You Can

Original Music

If you are a regular visitor to this blog you will know that I have been working away behind the scenes on my own original music.  This creative process takes along time but I am very pleased to say that I am certainly making progress.  I have a great team of professional musicians behind me and it makes the whole process a whole lot easier and make the songs better too.

The Youtube video below was recorded by me 2 days ago and it is the first live recording of me singing my original song “Yes You Can” to the guitar backing track which was arranged and played by Shako from New York.  I am sure you will agree that Shako did an amazing job with the backing track.  Things are certainly not perfect, keeping it real here for the moment, but I just wanted to share with you the progress that I am making.

Dream Come True

I feel very proud of myself because this is a dream come true for me. Next step is to take the tracks to the recording studio to be professionally recorded with the assistance of an expert sound engineer, this is in my current planning.

Yes You Can

The song “Yes You Can” has very inspirational and motivational words and I do hope it empowers you to “keep going” with whatever YOU want to achieve in life.

Thank you so much in advance for taking time to watch the video and please let me know what you think because I really do welcome your feedback.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

My Brooklyn Bridge King

When I see stunning photographs or paintings of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, it takes my imagination to different heights.  A feeling of magic, mystique, romance, energy, vibrancy, connection and love all rolled into one, comes over me.  I will soon be back there, living the dream and embracing the most perfect moment…..I see it, I feel it, I believe it.  Today, let your imagination soar into the clouds and see yourself in that place you want to be.  Have a beautiful day, love Clarabelle.

Brooklyn Bridge, New York

My Brooklyn Bridge King

Oh Brooklyn Bridge, how I love thee,

So strong and robust, above the sea.

You light up my soul, in the darkest night,

Like a powerful beacon, a shining knight.

You stretch my imagination, and unite lonely hearts,

A gentle giant and protector, in all of your parts.

Carry me over, let my spirit sing,

Dance with me forever, my Brooklyn Bridge King.

New York, New York

Start Spreading the News

I often remember special times that filled my heart with sheer ecstasy and excitement and I know I can bring that magic into my life at any moment, just by thinking about it.  I have a favourite city that I absolutely love to visit and it is the wonderful city of New York, New York.  I have an abundance of heartfelt memories with this magnetic city and whenever I hear someone mention New York or I see a picture of New York,  my heart does smile.  However, it is also important for me to remember that although these were especially good times for me, it is not about the past, it is about right now and about creating even better memories in the future – wherever my heart takes me my soul will follow.  This next poem is about my New York experience.  Let’s reflect on our happiest days, and by being happy right now, aim to make even happier moments by planning and creating the future that we truly desire.  Start spreading the news!!  Love Clarabelle.

New York City
Clarabelle & Lorraine in New York City, November 2007

     New York, New York

I left my heart, in New York, New York,

Happy celebrations, from the champagne cork.

Fireworks in the sky, magic in the air,

People coming together, it was wonderful there.

On top of the world, feeling so good,

My soul laid its hat, in this neighbourhood.


A city of hope, where dreams come alive,

A vibrant atmosphere, where busy minds do thrive.

I was swamped in emotion, a new world at my feet,

I danced in the rain, with new friends I did meet.

Although I’m not there, the pictures still play,

My imagination can take me there, anytime of the day.


But it’s not about the past, and that amazing time,

It’s about RIGHT NOW, as I search for the divine.

I create tomorrow, from my thoughts of today,

I’ve taken my heart back, and now I’m on my way.

New York, New York, I will always love you,

We shared special moments, so heartfelt and true.
