Usually, when we are children we feel the love or our parents through their care, through them telling us bedtime stories, through them making sure we have all we need, through playing with us, and bringing smiles on our faces. The more we grow and discover the world outside of our protected island the more we encounter other situations and people who are not so loving to us. (Unfortunately, there are many children who already experience a rougher entrance into this world from day one on.) Depending on how we deal with that and how we move on with our experience it can appear that over the years we see this world as a cold and forbidding place.

The Daily Song: Call It Dreaming/Iron & Wine

Christine at Brave and Reckless not only inspires me with her own writing, but also with her beautiful curating of art – both songs and poems. Reblogging her January 26 ‘Daily Song’ to celebrate Australia Day – this one finds that sweetest of human spots where melancholy, joy and hope all collide. And the video clip has some shots of the wide blue skies streaked with magenta light! Beautiful.

Brave & Reckless

Usually its the music that captures me but this video resonated somewhere really deep inside.  For everyone us who has ever felt alone, isolated, invisible.



“Call It Dreaming”
Say it’s here where our pieces fall in place
Any rain softly kisses us on a face
Anywhere means we’re running
We can sleep and see ’em coming
Where we drift and call it dreaming
We can weep and call it singingWhere we break when our hearts are strong enough
We can bow ’cause our music’s warmer than blood

Where we see enough to follow
We can hear when we are hollow
Where we keep the light we’re given
We can lose and call it living

Where the sun isn’t only sinking fast
Every night knows how long it’s supposed to last
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say
Before we ease…

Leaving Melbourne …

Does anybody ever really leave Melbourne? I flew back to the US a few days ago.  Who knows exactly how many times I have left, too many to count.  The feeling never changes, a small sense of anxiety that I am leaving some part of myself behind. I went out for an early morning walk before leaving, in search of my last caffe latte – Melbourne coffee simply is the best in the world.
