60 is 100

& other thoughts from my daily adventures
A hand full of herbs and a pocket full of tomatoes.  The good life.

Gathered some sage, basil, mustard leaves and a flower from Ben.

An afternoon in scotch village with Ben and Sam.

bowtie funtime.

a little bit of rose oil

a hint of patchouli

a touch of juniper

and maybe some sage

a dab of tea tree

and some argan too

some chanel

make it sound like space
always more reverb
more dreamy
and louder!
I like what you did there
let’s take off.

A few pictures from our rehearsal tonight, can’t wait to share our music soon!

"Grab my legs and pull me around like a dead deer.  Like a real hunter!"

singing somewhere, anywhere


pack my guitar

and capo

a tiny set list

step outside

it’s dark already

9:00pm

subtly summer is saying farewell

letting us down slowly and lightly

walk toward the bus stop

but lindley makes my pocket ring 

"i’ll pick you up and take you"

a sit on the curb

a truck with shovels and rakes and some dimply smiling cheeks

a few turns, bumps, a conversation

spring garden road

hop out with my guitar on my back

people look, mindless stares

probably wondering, “is that taylor swift?”

walk down the stairs to a more than full house

tripping over patrons and waitstaff

feeling like an elephant in a barbie dream house

SHRINK ME!!

made my way across the place

to the sound guy

always find the sound guy

his name is phyl, with a y

said the night’s full, something about signing up online

you know how well i get along with technology

carried on

happy to leave the chaos

now what?

i’m all hyped up - prepared to sing to hundreds of strangers

i sit on a ledge on spring garden and south park

i used to sit here when i worked across the road

it feels different when i have no where to be

it’s only 9:30

i text some near by friends to try and adventure

walk toward agricola

devon makes my pocket ring

commons?

between the fountain and the washrooms

i’m there first

i practice a song that flows easily until the last line

that last line is a bugger

i’ve been listening to radiohead and getting ambitious 

devon appears through the darkness

he’s lighted by a lamppost

wearing red plaid and straight jeans

same outfit as me

northend uniform we joke

we share songs, laughs, some theories about a mystery chord i’ve been using 

…something diminished we decide

another body appears

it’s rowan

not in uniform

"have a seat with us, we’ll sing you lullabies!"

songs and conversation

an adventure planned

across canada to live in the woods with 7 cats and a friend

city sirens and traffic

the ebb and flow of the fountain’s cycles

i used to be so afraid of this place

wouldn’t even walk here at night and now it’s a safe place

a retreat

this song is everything.

Tennyson - Tennyson (Full Album)

I’ve been sleep walking and talking lately, catching myself.  

In the wee hours of the morning I awoke to this album playing on my computer, over some beautiful surround sound speakers.

It was quite lovely that sleeping-me would find something so beautiful to wake conscious-me up with.

Intoxicating aromas 
Chamomile, rose, cloves.
Stir a pot on the stove
All things good.
Sit me at the table with a pallet of paint
A mug of water 
A paper towel
The super moon has taken us away.
