that's me in the spotlight...

I must say. that I am absolutely loving the Vivienne McMaster workshop - You are Your Own Muse. I am still finding it difficult to see myself in photos and I am very critical. it is getting easier to play to the camera though!
this week..
'taking a soundtrack of my life right now & creating a CD cover..'

I woke early this morning and wanted to take a snap of how i looked.. old pjams and all. hair not done.. hugging myself.. loving myself.. the song by R.E.M came into my mind when I saw this photo... yes, it has been doctored a little in PicniK... but fun !!

..."so you look into the land and it will tell you a story" - Great Southern Land by IceHouse
this afternoon, I took myself up to Olympian Rock lookout. it was freezing and blowing a gale and quite difficult to take self portraits.. but this one shows that I live in a beautiful, sacred place. I do believe this place is on a Ley Line connected to Glastonbury.... do you like my new beanie?

tomorrow, Joe and I are off on a little bike ride. for the weekend. - out west - to a town called Dubbo.. visiting a Zoo where we can ride pushbikes around ... midwinter here and expecting snow somewhere... brrrr..

I'll go for some snow about now. We're going to hit 100 today. It's only June. What is this? And to think, only a few short months ago I couldn't wait for this. Enjoy your bike ride.

The first photo, of you hugging yourself, is great! And I do like your new beanie. I wish I could wear them but they look horrible on me.

Have fun on your bike trip....bundle up and stay warm.

The first one sounds like me. I love that song from R.E.M. That place where you stand on picture 2 looks very beautiful.
Have a great weekend.

Guess what? This past week I bought a hat just like that. Yes it is hot summertime here but it reminded me of one I wore when I was 10. I had to have it. When I was a girl with short hair I pretended the ties were long braids. Can you believe we bought the same hats?
