Dear Blog Family

If there’s one thing to say about our cult, we’re loyal. Most of the visitors to these parts are feed subscribers – so I can’t really bluff about when I’m here and not here.

I haven’t been here a few days…

I think the most interesting transition about my shift from Australia back to New York City is this perpetual feeling of being under the eye of scrutiny. I’ve learned that human condition somehow makes other creatures more interested when they are in your immediate proximity than when they are not.

All sorts of interesting visitor patterns have taken place over the past few months. I’ve learned that most of the people I thought I was coming back to the US to spend time with would rather read about me here than pick up a phone and call.

Therefore, my brain has been stirring all weekend long – all last week too. I’m not going to get too much into the thoughts. I guess after nearly three years here I’m starting to learn how truly public this land is, and perhaps how quiet I have grown.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I hope to deliver some fabulous writing this week.

Love. Love. Love.

… the only consistency.

    Some of your lines slay me in the most positive of ways!
    Our interweb ways can make for some interesting head-spins. Hope the thoughts were not overly calloused or blister-like. And I think times of reflection and quiet can be rejuvenating. Even in many of your photos without a face on display, they have such a smile and happiness to them. That’s precious and you give us sneak peaks of it in your writing. Bloody amazing sister xxx
