in life and in self discovery there are 3 sides.
and this is me praying that this was the very first page not where the storyline ends.
(n.) finding something good without looking for it.
Thank You Matt Coburn for letting me apart of this whole experience! Congrats on the release of Ferris Bueller!!
I dream, they are never forced but every six months or so when I'm particularly vulnerable, he sneaks into my mind and I melt
So I am sitting here, sipping on sparkling wine and in my motel room in Riverside, Tasmania. Just a short 6km south of Launceston, the room I have been coming "home" to for the past 6 Days and for the first time in about a year I feel true PEACE again.
Everyone kept telling me that Launceston, Tasmania (only a short distance from home in Melbourne) is such a beautiful and untouched beauty in this world and I kept saying, "I have to go, I have to go, I wanna see it!" and you know what...I did.
I absolutely have adored this last week, everything little bit of living the calm and peaceful and serene life, a life where people don't yell at you, they are courteous to you in the street and just the views...well they speak for themselves.
At long last I have travelled somewhere, by myself for an ENTIRE week. Friday to Friday and over 2 years (technically speaking being I started my journey in Launceston on 30th December 2016 and will end my journey on 6th January 2017). IT's something that was on my bucket list and now achieved and you know what? It's now on my list to RETURN to.
I started my journey here feeling a little off, but that is common in a new place, you don't know how the transport works and you are a little bit unsure, but as soon as I got talking to people, I relaxed and realised...things are okay!
I travelled out to Hobart on New Years Eve and spent more money than I usually do on glorious champagne and food, but I met a cool group of locals and we literally partied into the night, watching the fireworks and things were just FUN!
Soon it came time for me to return back to Launceston via bus, which nearly ended in disaster but thankfully...I returned!
I have explored the beauties of Cataract Gorge (on a HOT HOT day, walking up that hill was damn torturous but the picnic by the river and waterfall and the views was WELL worth it).
Then I explored Wineglass Bay and the beautiful beaches and National Parks on the East Coast about 2 hour drive from Launceston, apart of a small group but we all bonded so well and by the time we reached the city centre for drop off at nearly 6pm I actually didn't want to say goodbye! I think I have definitely made a friend in at least one of them for keeps.
From there I made a great connection with a chestnut beauty by the name of Bedazzle. And that she did. I only rode on that trail for an hour, but she restored my faith in horse riding and I need to do it more!
And then it came time for my final day, unfortunately due to transportation issues I could not go where I wanted but I found an interesting little adventure park called the Penny Royal which takes you back in time to the heritage and those who founded the land of Tasmania and Launceston in particular in the early 1800's.
I have learnt so much on this wonderful trip and although I am sad this is all over because it mean returning to normalcy once more, I am happy for the experience and the people I have met along the way.
Here's to the moment and here's to now.
Launceston...I Love You.

I've shared this space with my best friend as she studied further in her field and needed a place to stay for a week and this has been my solid ground in the near death experiences I have faced. It's truly been my HOME.

So I am sitting here on a Sunday evening after a weekend of much enjoyment over my other love. That being Boundary Umpire for local AFL Style football. It's currently our Junior Finals and I am being able to be lucky enough to be apart of them, yet I am still quite sad that the season again is nearly over. It's unfortunate that the football season only goes for 5 Months because if I could I would LOVE to umpire each and every week.
A week ago I also experienced some bad luck when I was hit by a car going through a pedestrian crossing and luckily for me I walked away with bruising to my muscles only (still quite painful with excessive use) but it's a blessing I am still here, I guess this life still needs me in it! haha
So! I have been working on some new concepts in the lead up for the EP, which I will be giving the name out very soon for this and something very special which I cannot wait to share. I am definitely excited about how big and different my new songs are sounding and I think everyone is going to be pleasantly surprised when they hear them.
Anyway, best be time to turn in and prepare myself for a new week.
Take care all xx
Much Love Always,

After waiting two long years and much work in and out of studios, at long last my debut single for Kimm Jayne, in the broken hearted ballad will be finally here in June 2016.
I am sooo excited for this release...I have been dreaming what it would be like for the 2 years it's taken to perfect this and that fact that I still feel the same way, although no longer quite so broken hearted any more I am so proud of how far I have come and how much work I have put into this.
From working on this with Paul Webb, then sitting down with Cassie Dart from DCF Studios and discussing video concepts...and then finally polishing up the track in the Pughouse Studios with Niko Schauble...everything is just finally coming together!
It's a sad song and something that although I have long gotten over I still feel the pain of when I first wrote it because it really is quite personal to me. I'm really proud of this song and I hope others out there will connect to it and it helps others sort through that heartbreak, just as it did for me.
Gosh, how many times must I say "I'm proud?" haha But it is true!
For the past two years I have been working on this song which came about from a pretty severe heartbreak. It was the first time I ever really felt a connection to someone and I gave everything of me to them, but it was never returned. I remember the night in which I wrote the song still so vividly in my mind, it was a January evening. I was living in a small studio apartment in Coburg North and I had just gotten off from a phone call and the lyric came into my head as the tears streamed down my face “you’re playing your game, through you telling me ‘bout this girl you see, but can’t you see it’s hurting me”. It was the night I finally realised it was all over. I start there staring for a solid few minutes and got my notebook out, strummed a few chords and before I knew it…Catching Fireflies was born.
But until later on,
Thank you for reading my thoughts xx
All My Love xxxx
Catching Fireflies will be available worldwide to buy on June 17th 2016.
