The whole Moonshadow Media thingymabob.

Hi Good Thursday Afternoon

I hope that you are having a great week - I know that I am.

Just lately I have been doing a great deal of thinking and I don't know if it is the time of year or what but I just feel rather unsettled, disheartened with various things and so on.   So I have been trying to work out what my priorities are and where they lie.  Some things are going to have to go "out the door" in 2017 to make way for new ones.

As a result of this thinking phase I have already begun to make a few changes.  Starting with Wytchwynd Photography



I have decided that I really want to specialise in a few areas and whilst I will not turn work away willingly, I am hoping that as my name gets out and about that the work in the fields in which  I want to operate comes in and fills up the available time.

Alphabetically, the areas that I will be targeting are:-

Accident and Incident
Architectural (buildings,statues etc)
Artistes (in particular bands and singers)
Automotive (cars, buses, trucks etc)
Industrial (machinery etc)
Maritime
Nature
Press work

To see some of my photography (if you have not already done so) you could go to the Facebook page, Wytchwynd Photography or to my website http://bit.ly/wytchphotog

I have also been looking closely at my broadcast work and to be honest I have started to feel that radio is my first love and TV comes in second. Therefore, it is not beyond possibility that, unless I can find someone who is prepared to work with me to take IlfracombeTV to the next level, it might have to go back onto the back burner.


All that said I produced a new video for the blog that touches into Mindfulness and that is one area that I am keen to study.  During the last couple of days I recorded a new mini programme for Coaching Radio.

To listen to the latest item on Coaching Radio follow this link -  http://bit.ly/TheTao26

CauldronFM will also be getting a new Yule show, probably by the end of the weekend, so as you can see the broadcast side is busy, but again that is only because I make it so.

Therefore - if anyone reading this would like to jump on board and take on some of the broadcast bits (such as finding advertisers, sponsors for programmes, all of which I would love to do but I just don't physically have the time) and leave me to make the programmes I want to make, that would be fantastic.

And as yet I have not really touched upon the works that I feel called to do regarding my therapies (Crystal Spring, The Music Ladder, Reiki, Crystal Work) and the ongoing development of my skillset as a therapist.

Nor have I mentioned my work as a writer and a musician!

So basically, I think what I am saying is, I need to find a couple of clones that can be instructed to go off and do bits of the work that I already do.

All in all that is an indication of where my head is at the moment and as I said at the top of this post some things have to give - I have to move away from certain things to open the way for the development of others.

So, if you are, or you know of someone who is, a Girl Friday / Man Friday who shares the same passions as I do, and wants to jump on board the Moonshadow Media ship and join in the madness whilst helping me to push it from an almost, non - paying wannabe business into a paying successful media brand that is creating a living then please give me a shout or get them to give me a shout.

If you want to follow me on here please hit the blue button on the right hand side of the page that says  "Follow" - it would be great to see your name on the list.

I can be contacted in various ways including but not limited to:-

email - capstoneradio@mail.com
facebook - capstoneradio
twitter - @capstoneradio

So just before I go I would like to thank you for reading this and I wish you the best things that life can give.

Love and light to you all and remember

The Invitation.....Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Hi and good afternoon to you all.  I sincerely hope that you have had a great week.  I was just checking my emails etc. and discovered this piece that had been posted by a friend of mine from an organisation called "Conscious Living Events" and as I read it it rang so true and also highlighted some areas that I need to work on.  So I have decided to share it on here, I hope that you enjoy it

THE INVITATION
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing.
It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn't interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life's betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own; if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn't interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day. And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand at the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, 'Yes.'
It doesn't interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn't interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn't interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.
~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer ~

Isn't that a great piece of writing and a wonderful challenge to us all?

I will be recording a new video programme over the weekend (all being well) and if things work out the way I would like them to it will be posted on Sunday or Monday.

If you enjoyed reading this it would be great if you would "follow" me and my blog page by clicking the button over there on the right of your screen that says FOLLOW
You can also email me at thedavebaxter@mail.com - i would love to hear from you.

Until the next time we speak I will say "bye for now" and wish you the best things that life can give.

Don't predict the future - CREATE IT!
