Collaborations, Songs and Messages 

My sweet Miri has done it again….added her musical talents to one of my poems…both the melody and vocals are created by Miri.  If that’s not exciting enough, Rob, from For friends without borders gave it that magic touch of added instrumentation…listen you’ll hear the strings and that hauntingly beautiful flute….I cannot even begin to express my thanks to both Miri and Rob and I certainly cannot contain my excitement over another song!!!  We do have plans to make a CD, until then please continue to enjoy our creations here, thank you.  xo

Out an' About

I’m sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts of blogging (if not thebest part) are the connections we make.

In the two plus years I’ve been blogging this space has changed and it now feels so full of life, almost like a cosy cafe gathering with good friends.

I’ve met some amazing people here, a few of you have become real life friends and many more, who I’ve never met, I feel I’ve known forever.

What I do know is that, whether or not we’ve actually met, this blogging community is very real.

In the last year I’ve formed a wonderful online collaboration with the lovely Deb from Once Upon a Hot Flash who writes, aside from her daily gratitudes, beautiful poems and songs.

Music in the Outback

My dear sweet lovely friend Miri of Out an’ About  took one of my poems and added her music and her beautiful voice to it. Take a listen below.   Thank you Miri, you are one fabulous singer, xo!!   She also recently was runner-up for Most Inspirational Blog in this year’s Blogger Bash Awards…in my opinion she’s always a winner!!  You can read the words to the song here 

Out an' About

We’re leaving this Sunday for our Central Australia outback trip and packing has begun in earnest.

There’s one thing that I’d like to take but I’ll probably leave behind and that’s my trusty guitar.


She came with me to the Flinders Ranges and I enjoyed playing a few tunes around the camp fire but I’ve decided this trip she can stay at home. She’ll be waiting for me.


What is it about music that makes me feel so good?

It relaxes me when I’m stressed, inspires me when I feel flat and gives me a kick arse boost of energy at Zumba when I need it.

I’m sure I’m not alone.

Who doesn’t love a good boogie?

Music has such power to alter our moods, to raise our spirits.

As a goodbye serenade I’m going to share a song, written originally as a poem by my lovely friend and inspiring…

Tis the Night Before Christmas…

Tis the night before Christmas
I sit here and wait
Thanking God for my blessings
And praise Him so great

His mercy is plenty
He fills me with grace
His love is unending
I feel His embrace

tis-the-night-before-christmas

I ask for His guidance
To love as He does
And offer my service
To be as He was

I’m ever so grateful
To share every day
And say that I’m thankful
For what comes my way.

May You Be Blessed With The Spirit of Christmas!
