Hive Open Mic ( #openmic ) is a global community celebrating live music on Hive. Each week is a new event, encouraging musicians to share songs with an international audience.
As usual, I find relevance and timeliness in this week's Hive Open Mic theme: "Mi Felicidad" (My Happiness). Honestly, these past few weeks have been challenging for me, emotionally, so I've literally been checking in about my happiness. I think one of the primary factors in my struggle is the brutal summer heat, which feels much more intense than usual here in Austin, Texas. In fact, it feels oppressive.
It presents a real challenge for me, because I think the sunshine is a natural source of energy and joy, and yet is also burns like a fire, when it comes with such a strong force. I think a lot of things in life are like that: too much is overwhelming, overstimulating, overconsuming...
Doing my shadow work, aiming to illuminate the struggle here, I see that the sun is a source of my inspiration. I see the way it shines, and I want to shine. I see the way it creates life, and helps life to flourish and bloom. I want to do that too. Naturally there are consequences of my resistance to the sun. Maybe I can supplement it with extra vitamin D. Maybe I can look deeper into the reasons why the sun inspires me, and maybe I can find that inspiration elsewhere. Maybe it's time for me to embrace the space, the stillness, and the quiet of the night.
Last night, I laid awake in bed for hours. Why? I could've been up running around like a night owl, chasing rabbits, spelunking... But no, I just stayed in bed, wishing to be asleep. I guess I just felt like that was the responsible thing to do, to just commit to sleeping, even though my mind and body had other plans. Ah, I still have so much to learn. Anyhow, here's the song that sings me this week.
Good Morning Sun
Onto the horizon
Rising with the children
Of happiness I am
Receiving the blessing
Of sun energy
To echo the sun
Casting my sunbeams
To shine with all my might
In every direction
In the golden hour of morning
When the open eyes
Gaze upon the light
Thank you for this new day
I am born again again
Hive Open Mic - Week 120 is underway right now, with the current theme: “Mi Felicidad" (My Happiness). We introduce new themes every Sunday, inviting musicians to share a common current. Musicians always have full freedom to bring whatever music feels inspired in the moment. There is still time to jump in and enjoy this week's Hive Open Mic event!
@cabelindsay, me encantó su presentación. Una canción original muy melódica. Aparte de que toca la guitarra muy bien, esos intervalos con silbidos son sumamente relajantes y hermosos. Me gustó mucho visitar su post.Saludos desde Venezuela. Mil bendiciones y mucho éxito en todo lo que se proponga a nivel personal y artístico.
@cabelindsay I loved your presentation. A very melodic original song. Apart from the fact that you plays the guitar very well, those whistling intervals are extremely relaxing and beautiful. I really liked visiting your post. Greetings from Venezuela. A thousand blessings and much success in everything that is proposed on a personal and artistic level.

Thanks so much brother. This is one that I wrote a while ago. It just happens to be a great fit for this week's theme, and in fact I think this invitation to focus on "My Happiness" helped me to get through kind of a gloomy spell. Grateful for this community. Happy to know you!

@cabelindsay I loved this performance a lot, your creativity as a song writer is so unique and outstanding. I love the background of the video the butterfly caught my attention and it made me love it more❤
Thanks for sharing such melodies price with us and my the whistling, everything is just so beautiful ❤
Oh cool, thanks for noticing that detail of the butterfly. I play in a band called Cosmic Butterflies, and I really love butterflies. That's a place where my kids and I like to splash around the paint. Thanks for your wonderful comment.
The sun is a curious element that makes us think and reflect, when it is embracing it can cause us physical discomfort but we also understand that they are only natural consequences of a giant that is the source of life on earth, we can not be annoyed with it, on the contrary we should be grateful.
Your song is beautiful dear brother, as always you inspire us with your talent and good music, it was an honor and a pleasure to listen to you. We send you a big hug!
Your words feel like a hug, thanks for sharing your reflection, voicing your feelings. Wonderful contribution to the conversation about the sun.

Gracias, dulce amiga. Muy amable de su parte escuchar y enviar su nota amistosa.
@cabelindsay, hi, you create many songs, thats amazing, i think you should compose the music to make many instrument inside the song, nice song by the way
Thanks for your suggestion! I try to do some music looping for that reason, in order to add some more instruments. I aspire to play the keys well one day. In the meantime, I play with a band called Cosmic Butterflies, and fortunately I get to play these songs with some pretty rad musicians.
Our very own and amazing @cabelindsay, constantly shining with the perfect songs.
You have brought to us another lovely and performance.
I enjoyed every bit of it.
Aw, thank you for your too-kind words. I'm flattered. I'm so glad we have each other and this community to encourage and inspire each other to reach up and stretch out and be blessed.
What a beautiful tribute to the sun king, this song is a poetry written from the depths of vital energy!!!!
I think your self took you to what represents what happens with that heat wave, you must meditate in extreme conditions to consolidate more your wisdom and way of facing the day to day, take this as a necessary mental training!!!!
Just as you say, now you must enjoy the night, somehow it connects with silence, awe, beauty, mysticism, something in it calls you without doubt dear brother!!!!
Your song makes me imagine a sunset, a prelude to the night and when you whistle I imagine all living beings taking shelter to rest... what a great song Cabe, thank you for sharing it with everyone 💞!!!!!
I send you a hug, one of those that transmit the stillness of the night that made you think... I love you brother 🙌😀💛.... You Rockkk!!! ☀️🌙☮️💖
Mm hm, that's an awesome point you raise about mental training. So right! Yes, I have to condition my mind and body to cope with the intense heat, and acclimate, in order to make it through the summer season. Love you, bro. Hugs!
Thats is lovely my friend , reminds me of towns van zendt and Jonny Cash 😍
Ooh, I highly respect and admire those two musicians, thanks a bunch for your comment!
Great song man, I dunno why more folks don't just look up in awe of the Sun. 👏
I know. I'm with you in that thought. The Sun definitely deserving of our awe and admiration.
