Sara Jane

My gorgeous friend Sara Jane, fresh from winning an AMPLIFIED award (Tasmania) this year, is now ripping up the Blues & Roots charts on TRIPLE J UNEARTHED. Please, if you've got a minute, take the time to listen to and rate her tracks. I think she's got a lot of talent, and she's such a sincere, dedicated person that I would love to see her get all the support that I'm able to drum up for her. Clicky clicky!

A memento


Iiiiiii am rather excited.

I was in Launceston the other day, and went up to Holyman House to visit the Photobat office while they celebrated Cupcake Day (all proceeds to the RSPCA) and showcased their stuff.

I've been musing for ages over the idea of signing up with Photobat to do a portrait session. I don't have anything in mind... at all... but I've been a long-time fan of Alan Moyle's work. Check out his website. Seriously. Love his style. (And check out the blog.)

I want to capture who I am now. Somebody on the verge of enormous change! Somebody a little bit nervous and plenty of bits excited and mostly just looking forward to an exciting unknown future!

I'm busy making plans... Lots of plans... I can't reveal anything yet, because nothing has happened (drat) but the plans are underway.

I'm going to be so sad to leave this lovely city and especially sad to leave the gems of people I have come across here ... but it's onward and upward for me, and it starts today.

I'll keep you updated on the Photobat thing! Totally pumped for it!

August 11

Midnights in Winter
The glowing fire
Lights up your face in orange and gold.
I see your sweet smile
Shine through the darkness
It's line is etched in my memory.

So I'd know you by heart.

Mornings in April
Sharing our secrets
We'd walk until the morning was gone.
We were like children
Laughing for hours
The joy you gave me lives on and on.

‘Cause I know you by heart.

I still hear your voice
On warm Summer nights
Whispering like the wind.

You left in Autumn
The leaves were turning
I walked down roads of orange and gold.
I saw your sweet smile
I heard your laughter
You're still here beside me every day.

‘Cause I know you by heart,

‘Cause I know you by heart.
