The best part of songwriting is when you find that $20 bill in your pocket.

[all we have are open skies and endless oceans.]

[all we have are open skies and endless oceans.]

The moment when, after many years
of hard work and a long voyage
you stand in the centre of your room,
house, half-acre, square mile, island, country,
knowing at last how you got there,
and say, I own this,

is the same moment when the trees unloose
their soft arms from around you,
the birds take back their language,
the cliffs fissure and collapse,
the air moves back from you like a wave
and you can’t breathe.

No, they whisper. You own nothing.
You were a visitor, time after time
climbing the hill, planting the flag, proclaiming.
We never belonged to you.
You never found us.
It was always the other way round.

— Margaret Atwood

Today made me want to get back into shooting video.

The last thing we want to be is a convenience.

Sometimes I look at my peers and think about what it took to get to where they are - how long does it take to write an album, get signed, nail your first big gig, or be published in whatever worthless magazine that’s out there? Then I realise how long I’ve been seeking life answers and how much more I appreciate what it is earned because it’s that much harder for me. Because no matter how far or successful I’ll become, I’ll always be the outcast. And that’s when I realised I finally have what it takes to speak on their behalf.

My favourite pen just died.  Thanks for the thousands of words we put to paper. You went out in the best way possible. RIP Charles. ps. Sorry it took me this long to name you.
