Riding my Time Machine, Watching HeyKelsey Sing


Marsha wrote about a Penn State women's softball player she was lusting after ("eye damaging hip action" ) and, sucker that I am for athletic women, I couldn't resist going to have a look at a video of her on the Tube.

Slightly disappointing though, because the videos of her in action are three or four years old, and to be honest, she was too young in them, even for me. (That's saying something. ) But there was also an interview with her from last year, looking more like a grown woman.

It reminded me to write about something which has been catching my attention recently. Some time ago I discovered a singer who calls herself HeyKelsey. She has a quirky style and a pretty, unusual voice, and her simple guitar and voice songs - some original, some covers - are often recorded outside, where you can hear chickens, birds and sometimes other wildlife in the background.

She started recording them as a , and has posted on and off for over eight years and is now in her twenties. Watching these videos is like having a time machine and watching her grow up. Apart from enjoying the music, I find this fascinating. I never did have any , but if I had, I would like to have had a who could sing like Kelsey. My current favourites are "The Boy I love," and a cover of a song called "Love and Some Verses."

Of course there are traps here. One is that actually I don’t know her at all, and it would be easy to become fixated on someone like this – it can be done here on this site too, although here we interact with each other, and so I hope we have a more real connection, sometimes at least.
Then there is also the danger, more from Kelsey’s point of view, of attracting stalkerish attention of completely the wrong kind. And although I am not doing that, there is of course the chance that people would misunderstand me and think that I was, finding this creepy.

These videos are so much more intimate than the old fashioned music video we are all used to watching. So another danger is that we imprint our vision of the person over reality and begin living in a fantasy world. I love to watch her sing, but I admit, I do feel as if she is singing directly to me, when I know she is not. She reminds me of a girl I knew when I was nineteen. Perhaps it is not just Kelsey I am really watching?
I hope I am immune to all this, and if I am, it is partly thanks to this place. I have learnt so much about myself, and about how people interact on line, from people I have written to or talked to from this site.

Most of the videos are recorded on land which is presumably her home. A pet or chickens walk behind the camera, the chickens sometimes do backing vocals and make her smile. There is a lake, sometimes surrounded by green leaved trees in summer, sometimes bare and frozen in winter. You see the seasons change as you see the changes in her life. The song choices in themselves tell a story. It reminds me of the sweet melancholy feeling I always used to get from reading “The Time Traveller’s Wife,” (the book I am hiding behind in my picture, ) in which a guy dips in and out of the life of the woman he loves at all ages in her life.

It makes me sad that computer files were not around when I was nineteen and wanted to be a song writer. It inspires me to make simpler recordings of my songs and put them up on line right now, if it is not too late. Maybe it is too late.

I wish I could have had more than one life. (Have I written about that before, lol? )

It's kind of on the future agenda. Right now there are a few other lifelong projects I have to keep working on, and some logistics to sort out. But thanks for the encouragement, I'll keep you posted.

You always seem to write well , on your visits to my page , and here on your own . i'm sure your songs have the same thought and quality . It's never too late , but it never gets any sooner , no matter how long you put it off .

I don't think it's ever too late to create and perform, whether that's music, acting, visual art, writing, whatever. If you have the ability to make something beautiful that draws out people's emotions, that's not a thing that you lose with age, though sometimes it atrophies with lack of use and you have to work to get it into condition again. It's doesn't leave you, though. A musician is always a musician; a writer is always a writer.

I also don't think it's a bad thing to become infatuated with someone, as long as you have a good sense of boundaries (which you do). Even reaching out to them by commenting on their work or sending a quick message isn't necessarily a bad idea. Sometimes great connections can be made that way.

Do not seek an external refuge, but be a light unto yourself.

"It's never too late but it never gets any sooner" ! That's a great comment. We all know that, but it can be hard remembering to put it into practice.

It might even make a good line in a song too.........

Hmmmmmm. I think I might resist the temptation to send messages to Kelsey for a while longer! (Not that I am saying I have become infatuated with her incidentally - those were your words, and for once not quite applying to me! ) Fascinated I will admit to.

You are right about the creative flow becoming atrophied and needing practice to get back into condition. I don't neglect mine but it gets tugged in different directions - hence feeling I would like to have had ten parallel lives, so as to have been more specially focussed on certain things rather than have tried my hand at so many, and only got half good at anything.

Um. Re. the infatuated...I may have been projecting a bit there. Or a lot. *blushes*

(Last summer I developed a crush on a semi-celebrity. Surprisingly, despite never contacting him directly, this year I got a message from him, and we started chatting, and had our first date the week before last. Life is weird.)

    Well. You've received my impression of the singer
    But reading this. I'm picking up on sumn' else

    The singer has been effective. Connecting with you
    Her evocative style. Purposely done for that reason
    It won't resonate with everyone. But those that share her P.O.V
    Perhaps. You share more in common. Than you think
    As humans. It is what we want most
    Connection
    How it comes. What forms it takes. Not important
    A song / video. A blog post. An e-mail from afar
    So long as we make those connections. We find joy. Meaning. Purpose. Love
    Pretty good deal. If you ask me

    Love,
    H'
Wow. You are so right. This is one of the best comments I have ever had.

Seriously.

It must be a connection.

Ehh. Semi-celebrity. Not an actor or musician, but known in certain circles. And we're not really dating. We had one date. It lasted four days, but still was only one date. There may be more, but he lives in continental Europe. Definitely hoping Brexit doesn't happen!

You did not tell me that story. Why would your mother do such a thing?!

Well I hope you get to see him again some time....four days, that's one hell of a date!

I think I have mentioned the story about Liz Hurley a few times on my blog in passing, but the original can be found way back at I Nearly Had a Date With Liz Hurley if you want to have a look.

oh, there's so much that's happening! i realized i'd been away from here longer than usual, because it took me a while to remember the name of the site!! lol

i'll have to see what i last wrote about so i can write up a good update. came straight to your blog when i logged in, and then i had to go attend to stuff.

Biggest bit of news is, that my mom's visiting me for the summer. it's a unique experience. i haven't had any of my family members or friends from the past, visit me in my home in the US!

so, i'll have to fill you in on the details sometime. i'm glad you're still here. i wouldn't return if you left.
