Gosh. It's hot.
No breeze in the evening, little cool air in the morning. I believe we are in the thick of the Australian summer...
I am praying for a storm, a cloud, or at lease a new summer dress to offer relief from the monotonous heat!
I am however enjoying my piano on these hot days when one has to avoid the outdoors until about 8pm. I have been commissioned to write the music which turns my client's beloved poem into a wedding song. Which is a precious task that I have enjoyed. I like that my craft can be used behind the scenes for a song I won't even perform, this different kind of gig still earns me a little pocket money and makes me feel like the working songwriter I am, and blesses people on their special day.
I am compiling songs for my new album, and thinking it's going to be a very real, poetic, acoustic and melodic little thing, which I am eager to start recording!
I am sitting in front the tennis, (a newly converted fan of the sport), with one eye open and one shut. Tired, contented, missing my friend in Manilla. And gosh. It's hot!
