How a day begins.

Finally the veil of winter is starting to retreat & the days become longer & warmer & a sense of hope is restored. They say it take 6 months to settle in a new environment, it's taken me 8 months & I think I'm still adjusting... the tunnel has shortened and the light at the end of it has intensified.

I've started studying again, which has brought my enthusiasm for my work forward a little & made me feel like I do something with the hours in my day. Hopefully this time next year the studying will be done & I can start planning my future a little more.

Last week one of my wonderful Brisbane friends visited & we went to see Florence & the Machine... so beautiful... I would go to a concert every night if I had the chance... later in the week I went to a Megan Washington in-store... again, more brilliance.

Everyday is a new playlist of songs.

I feel so far from here

The last couple of weeks have felt like I've been living inside a pressure cooker. Now the lid has been removed & I've cooled down I feel as if life is regaining it's lightness & rapture. The autumn & now, winter days are becoming darker & the leaves are becoming scarce on branches & abundant under foot. The first seasons in a new city always feel different, it reminds me a little of my first London winter, the fresh newness of it all combined with the lack of sunshine.

My favorite things have become: flannelette pajamas, decaf coffee & warm muffins in the morning.

Where swallows nest.

Soul searching & road finding has taken up so many days of late. I travelled to Queensland to visit my Dad in hospital, I took on board so many friend's opinions & tried to forgive grievances from the past. 

If only we could hold ourselves up to candle light & see what lived inside of us. I guess at times, the only way to find the answers is to chronicle the past to find hints & clues. I am enjoying a little time alone, to just let myself be. While I let my fingers uncover the past in words written on notebook pages & photographs of my feet.

Cameras & Coffee

There are two true loves in my life right now... Cameras (Diana Mini & LC-A) & Coffee (Decaf)... I dreamt last night about a past lover & my need to find the right film to document our last days together. In many ways it was beautiful & had that feeling of contentment that has lingered all day... I would love to have sweet dreams like those every night.

A place to begin.

Welcome to the beginning of my blog. I hope to make this a lovely place to come visit, see some neat photographs, read some sincere words & insightful prose. I look forward to putting my thoughts on here & hope that a few of you will enjoy coming here enough to keep coming back.

A little about myself. I've been many things in my life so far, for the last 9 years I've been a poet, the last 6 years a Naturopath & the last year an avid photographer. I've lived in London, travelled Europe & come back to my homeland, Australia.

All of the photos on here are my own, unless I have stated otherwise & I will also publish my poetry from time to time. Sometimes however I will just plot my own thoughts & recollections.

Thank you for being here for the ride!
