The phoenix is a mythical sacred fire bird. It is described as a bird with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has also been described as looking like a giant, firey peacock. It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally “sun-city” in Greek).
I feel, with this the biggest break in the podcast, like a phoenix rising from the flames… I’ve been away locked in mental hospitals for the past few months and it hasn’t been fun…. just been keen to get back and get on top of my music…. This mix is a bit rusty but a nice start back with lots of fresh vocals and some flaming hot tunes.
