hong kong...

I love Hong Kong. It has an awesome energy and vibe. It's a 24 hour city with great food, bars and shopping. Victoria Harbour is entrancing both day and night. IFC 2 remains the city's beacon of contemporary style and impressive architecture.

jetlag and writer's block...

The supercharged drummer taps away furiously. An exotic explosion of tribal Moroccan beats reverberates around the room, moving bodies in seats and feet in empty spaces. Every now and then during one of these solo confessions the Trumpet Player crouches down on one knee. Cradling his instrument like a lover in his arms he looks down at her with a glimmer of contempt while nodding his head in protest to the strong, bird wing flutter of the bongo drums. He takes another quick sip of his pink alcoholic mess of a drink and wipes sweat from his heavy brow. His glassy eyes flash a cold razorblade gaze through the soft naked flesh in front of him. This executor raises his brass seductress back to his lips and breathes into her, bringing the world back to life. In this planned chaos, a complex fusion of deliberate composition and improvised verset resounds through the crowded floor space embedding its dynamic vibrations in every open ear. Complete, in the clamour of the night speckled, spirit soaked room.

That's all I have so far...

foxy, foxy

Loving these images of Megan Fox by the super talented Craig McDean.

I think Megan Fox is really underrated and receives a lot of undeserved criticism. Beauty can be a curse.

walk on by...

as you walk on by/ music whirls around/ runs like cool water/ along my spine/ boils up in my chest/ and warms my fluttering heart/ flushing my cheeks/ I dream of you and me/ freedom in each other/ happiness.../ all others aside/ just want to be loved by one/

it is only you my eyes fall upon/ when you smile at me/ as you walk on by…

beauty of the day

Today is in complete contrast to yesterday. I usually love fresh rain on the city streets but the low clouds, imposing humidity and general crankiness in the air, are all a bit suffocating. In an effort to bring back a little sunshine I'm posting the photos I took yesterday. I live about 5 minutes from Sydney Harbour and often go on makeshift picnics with the fella and the fur baby.

Whenever I read this I feel both happy and sad. It is such a lovely gesture. I didn't know Jan Grimaldi or her dog Milly but sometimes when I sit here I can't help but wonder about them. I mostly think about all the time they must have spent together and what they must have meant to one and other to inspire such a beautiful memorial. And I wonder about the dates because sometimes when two hearts are so closely bound, one cannot live without the other.
