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.
This week's Hive Open Mic theme is: “A Grateful Heart,” chosen by our community's recent Spotlight Artist: @hopestylist. For this invitation, I'm reflecting on the factors in life that give me gratitude. Above all else, I find gratitude in the feeling of being Home. Home is not a place. Home is people. Home is comfort, joy, and peace. Home is knowing I am embraced just as I am. Home is here in the present moment, where my gratitude overflows.
To me, heaven on earth is possible because “Home” exists wherever I am. In this way of thinking, even the earth is a heavenly paradise, because love reigns supreme whenever I am Home. For me, Home is being with loved ones, experiencing the simple yet profound fruits of life: warmth, laughter, singing... These are the finer things that bring me Home.
A wise person named Thich Nhat Hanh wrote in a book called Being Peace, “You don't have to die to get to heaven. In fact, you only have to truly live.” These words ring true for me. Heaven is not just a place for the afterlife. It's a place that can be found right here, right now. It's in the beauty and brilliance that lights us up. It's in the hum of the birds, bees. It's in the yumminum of the peaches and cinnamon. Mm hm!
Fill a home with aroma
Life is sweet and savory
Like a warm piece of pie
Paint a field colorful
Simple glimpses of everyday
Heaven here on the earth
Hive Open Mic - Week 147 is underway right now, with the current theme: “A Grateful Heart.” 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!
This is powerful my dear @cabelindsay: "Above all else, I find gratitude in the feeling of being Home. Home is not a place. Home is people. Home is comfort, joy, and peace. Home is knowing I am embraced just as I am." Siempre es un placer ver tu serenidad y talento.😊😉
Esto esta poderoso mi estimado @cabelindsay: "Por encima de todo, encuentro gratitud en el sentimiento de estar en el Hogar. El hogar no es un lugar. El hogar es la gente. El hogar es comodidad, alegría y paz. Hogar es saber que estoy abrazado tal como soy." It is always a pleasure to see your serenity and talent.😊😉

Nice Melody...Home is not just family but comfort, peace and love...that really got me. Grateful for people, loved ones. Lovely hook my friend..mm hm!🎶
Nice of you to read the post and resonate with the words. Thanks for looking, listening, and sending your warmth.
Blessings always bro...glad to have come across this, always a pleasure listening to you and I look forward to your posts weekly 🙂
Cabe, I totally agree with you, Home is where the people we love and the things we are passionate about are. We have to be very grateful for the things we have in life, even if they are small.
This original composition is beautiful, I love the melody and the second voice you did, I enjoyed it very much.
Yes, I feel the same way. It's the little things in life, the finer things - that's what makes the world so wonderful. Even through the crushing ice storms that chill us to the bone, the blessings abound. Feels like the heavenly heights reach down to us, wherever we are. And maybe the secret to staying in that state of being "Home" is to generate gratitude on a daily basis.
hello my friend @cabelindsay I really liked your very heartfelt interpretation and what a good combination of voices and guitar a giant hug and a thousand blessings 🤗🎸🎶
Aw, I feel that! Thank you. 🕊
Cabe Lindsay X2, Really? This a gift we should appreciate from the bottom of our hearts, what a beautiful tune you have shared with us.
Your words only speak truths, Home should be our piece of heaven on earth, it is in us to be able to craft it with our love and that of our family members, let's work to make it happen.
It was wonderful to listen to you dear friend. We send you a big hug!
Grateful for your hugs. Thanks for listening and sending a lovely compliment. Nice of you to read the words too, and share that vibe with me. Lots of love to the two of you!!
Woow como haces eso😱 jajaja..

¡Adorable! Gracias mi amiga. Me hace sonreír. Un placer saber de ti y sentir tu calor.
Aplausos de pies 😄
Love this! haha
"Home is knowing that I am embraced just as I am..." with this phrase you sum up what a true home is... beautiful and very wise words.....
Cabe brother, I loved how you got this presentation of this song, no doubt as you say in the lyrics and in your writing, I believe that heaven is also on earth, or rather, the earth is a piece of heaven that God gave us to live!!!!
I loved the illustration of the animals, creation is the most beautiful thing we can experience during life, that's why we must enjoy everything that surrounds us and take special care of it!!!!
A big hug dear brother, many blessings to you 🙏💖..... You Rockkk!!! 🙌😀💛
Yeah brother! I love that thinking. It really brings joy to me to feel that possibility. I am with you in the high appreciation of the gift of creation. Sending a grateful hug.
how was I living without tasting a bite of these melodies, without caressing those precious drawings?
Today my endorphins are pumping 😜
Beautiful of you to say so. Happy you're feeling positive vibes. Wishing you a wonderful day.

The title of the song is unique, and so is the song. The harmony is so pleasant to listen to. I love the rhythm, the style and uniqueness of this song.
Nice tune, and I love the way you put the video together.
I have yet to post my first offering, but I will always be blown away by those with the talent to write.
Looking forward to more..
I think I just managed to 'Like' my own comment! Lol..
Can't seem to 'unlije' it now.
I do have much to learn.. :)
I really liked that ghost of yourself that you added as a chorus. Se ve realmente genial.
What a wonderful little song, a perfect one to sing around a campfire on the beach. I had a look at my blog and realized its been 3 months since I posted a hive open mic entry. I haven't really been all that inspired musically this winter . I guess I sort of burnt out after 3 intense years of music being all I focused on. Seeing you make a return to the weekly event is really inspiring. If I can think of a song for week 148 I will try picking up the guitar again. Hope all Is well with you :).
Querido amigo espero que este bien le escribi por Discord cuando pueda me respondes por fa vor @cabelindsay
He llegado un poco tarde, pero no tanto como para apreciar tu gran talento y una hermosa composición digna de transmitir un valioso mensaje al mundo entero. Todo el concepto de tu arte es admirable hermano, desde la letra de la canción hasta las imágenes que creas para acompañar tu trabajo. Es trascendental.
