gutted…

Occasionally random events offer a representation of life events sent to test us. A Sunday morning recently I woke at 5.15am to hear a neighbour say “It’s on fire!”. We marvelled in our nightclothes out in the cold as an abandoned van was engulfed outside our building. The next morning taking these photos I was struck by how a fire so quickly put out could thoroughly vaporize most of the interior. Somewhere, however, someone will make the most of the remaining metal husk and turn it into something useful again. And that’s the take home message of today’s post. Despite how blasted out and pulled to shreds we can feel by traumatic events there is a way forward, we can be renewed, and, although initially seemingly impossible, the silver linings and priceless gifts are revealed in time.

admit one outside the comfort zone…

So far for me 2012 is meaning lots of leaving the comfort zone, quite an interesting process that’s for sure.

Last weekend took me to an invitation only private mini music festival at a farm out of Rushworth. Although the inviter is someone I don’t know well, there were only two others I’d met before, and I’d be sleeping in the car, it turned out to be a truly brilliant experience. Such welcoming, open, positive people. And some very talented musicians who urged me onto the stage too for great jams that went on and on. I’d hoped to be there with a friend or two – a shame they missed such a rare chance to see me sing! This is getting a bit wordy now, so I’ll sign off by recommending Jo Jo Smith, a truly remarkable woman whose performances I felt honoured to witness.

These images I took the next morning, where more music ensued xx
