On the 23rd of June it's Typewriter Day. Some of the most beautiful poetry was created on these amazing machines. I personally am obsessed with them. I have one from 1928 that I'm fixing. So hopefully it will be able to write beautiful pieces once more.
If you have one laying around the house, write a piece on it and share your photo with us.
If not, write a beautiful poem right here, in the app! We have plenty of paper and the right fonts to go along with it.

Imagine wearing slippery socks on a smooth floor. Sliding all over the place while you sing your favorite go-to song when you're happy.
What song would you be playing? And what happy memories come with it?

For me, it's the song 'Soul Man' by Johnny Winter. I remember my dad and I doing some serious air guitar solos on this song.
I can't wait to read your stories!

Did you ever want to help someone so badly but they wouldn't allow you close enough to do just that?
Elsiane wrote a song called "mechanics of emotions". In this song she sings:
"remembering those times when you were never safe.
You're trapped in all the shadows of your pain.
But sadly you were never back the same way.
I've always tried to bring you life again.
How am I supposed to heal you.
How am I supposed to reach you. "
Write your own little verse about how you wanted to help someone but couldn't.

PROMPT : I'LL BE FINE.
I've been binge watching this show called 'Please like me'. And every episode starts with a different opening but always the same song.
It's called " I'll be fine" by Clairy Browne & the bangin' rackettes. The title already tells you what the song is about.
Now I want you to write a short song(or poem) to yourself saying it'll be fine. Then one day, when you need it, you can read it to yourself.

It's "title track day" tomorrow. Celebrating those albums and singles that have changed our lives.
To celebrate, write a letter including the track title of your life. You can add a photo that you think would be a great cover, or add your own song.
Be creative! Tag your letter 'music'.
"When I watched you walk away,
I knew I'd gone too far.
I'm on my knees to plead for mercy.
Don't want to live and hurt alone. "
The first verse of the song 'Hear Me' by the Tedeschi Trucks Band.
I'd love to see you finish this song in your own words. Tag your letter 'music'.
MY MUSIC MEMORY
My favorite memory that involves music is where I would lay on the backseat of my parents car as a kid. We'd drive home for 2 hours after a long family day every month.
It was usually after 10pm, so it was dark outside. And as my father would put on the Graceland album by Paul Simon (till this day my favorite album), I'd watch the highway lights rush by.
Just the dark blue sky, the lights and Paul Simon singing about the Mississippi Delta.
