Here’s a delightful interview of Mickey by Eva Ní Shuilleabháin of Scrogall TV, Co. Kerry. Finishes with Mickey performing the song “Time” from the new album. Out soon!
Just released! A brand new arrangement of Mickey’s composition entitled, “Time.”
Mickey shares his thoughts and inspiration for the song:
“TIME” has a simple message, I guess. I’ve learned that TIME is the most-valuable commodity through all the years of your life.
We acquire lots of things throughout our lifetime… money, a nice home, fancy car(s), friends, love, dreams and aspirations… but TIME is the one thing we just never have enough of. From the day we are born… time is running out. HAH! Not to worry, that’s not a bad thing. It just helps us to focus sometimes… to have goals, and deadlines, and a schedule to make sure we try to fit everything and everyone in.
As the opening lyric in the song offers “Stop chasing Ghosts“… basically try not to live in the past but in the present… the here and the now. In the moment. Sometimes, we either live in the past with regrets or looking to the future, hoping that all those things you think you need will be waiting somewhere in the future. Most of the time, they’re right here, right now in front of you and within your control.
Enjoy the moment and allow yourself and the people you care about to enjoy it too. Concentrate on what’s relevant today. Because it may become one of those things you learn from in the future. Only by living and taking on the challenges today, will you realise how important those decisions will be in the future. They should not be viewed as mistakes but things you needed to do to enjoy the moment at that particular time!!
As one might say, it’s all about the here and the now! Enjoy… and I hope you enjoy the song too. Now that is important! Thanks for listening. MJ
