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!
