Hola & happy Monday!

I started this Monday morning with a long beach walk with my dear pup Pippa (since I have rescued her in Baja a couple of years ago, she has been going everywhere with me ever since!). Not a bad way to start a Monday, don’t you think?  Beach walks and sunsets like the one below are what makes me smile all day long in my Baja retreat. Along with great people, tacos and margaritas!

No wonder that my Music Monday column today is inspired by Mexico. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite Mexican singers, Carla Morrison. I admit, I don’t understand just everything she sings about, but I’m learning slowly. And her voice is just mesmerizing. Listen below.

Un beso,
Madison

Hello and happy Monday!

With the sun warming up our days, my thoughts start drifting often and thinking about all the places I’d love to visit this summer. Like Spain for example… Enjoying hot summer strolls around quaint towns, flamenco nights, tapas, sangria, listening to the sexy Spanish accent, and more…

That’s why you won’t be surprised with my choice of today’s tune: Sangria by Céu.  Just press play and you’ll see what I’m talking about. You will be transported to a distant place, dreaming of traveling now!

Lucky for me, before summer vacations, I’m heading to my writer’s retreat real soon. I’ll be sharing you my tune from there next week. Stay tuned!

Love,
Madison

Brika moon

Hello and happy Monday,

Can you feel the Spring in the air? I certainly can! Even Canada is warming up and it is lovely to walk in the park with some sun and warmer breeze on my face.

Today I wanted to share with you a song Moon by Brika. I love her moody voice and I love listening to her while writing and reading.

Listen below.

Happy Spring,
Madison Lake

small-blackHello and happy Monday!

I hope you’re having a great start of the week!  My dog Pippa took me for a nice walk this morning, and I’m now sitting in my writing studio, drinking hot Chai Latte and getting ready to do some writing.  But first, here’s our Music Monday column.  Today I’d like to share with you a music recommendation by my reader Wilbur, he says “Boys Life”, a song by New Yorkers Small Black, is one of his latest musical discoveries, and he loves listening to them when reading Madison Lake’s romance novels.  Thank you, Wilbur, for this lovely recommendation!

On another note, if you are in Vancouver on February 11th this year, save the date for my Boudoir Stories book reading at The Art of Loving, an adult store and sex shop based in Vancouver. The event is free, but please signup here, so we know how many guests to expect.

Until then, have a fabulous Monday! If you’d like to recommend your favorite song that you like to read or write along with, please send it to me at madlakepages @ gmail.com.

Love,
Madison

Tracy-Chapman

Hello and happy Monday!

Isn’t this one of the best weeks?  We’re in between holidays, after one long holiday weekend and looking forward to another long holiday weekend.  I could get used to it!  How was your Christmas Eve and Day?  I hope you celebrated it surrounded with dearest family and friends.

I enjoyed my holidays greatly – although I am still suffering from a cold.  Have you noticed the full moon for Christmas?  It was beautiful!  I hear this was the last full moon on a Christmas Day for the next 25-30 years, so with that in mind, it was even more special.

Today on our Music Monday column I wanted to share with you Tracy Chapman with “Give Me One Reason“.  There’s something in her voice that soothes my soul, and I just love listening to her.

I’m drinking a lemongrass tea with a spoonful of honey and lemon.  I hope the cold and fever go away completely before the New Year’s Eve!

Wishing you all a fabulous week!
