Distance makes the heart grow fonder

I heard from a bloggy friend today. It warmed my heart so much. Some years back I made a random and out of the blue road trip across the country to meet her and some other crafty peeps in person who happened to be gathering at a park. I'd never met any of these gals before other than chatted online. I had an absolute ball and found a great friend with whom I have so very much in common. I've since watched this gal make leaps and bounds in her crafty endeavors. We don't talk every month but I hope deep down that she'll always be happy to chat with me about our crazy interests.

It's these sort of things that, to me, make my life worthwhile. Doing stuff that pops up out of nowhere and takes you on a crazy turn that you don't know where it's going to take you. Speaking of which...

Of late I've been taking myself along to see some local Adelaide bands - Lucky Seven, Lady Voodoo & The Rituals and interstate acts such as Ash Grunwald.

I love the way some music just lifts me right out of wherever my head is at and transports me to another moment. I live my day through my music. I have specific songs for different moods and emotions. I have genres of music that I hold close to my heart because they speak to me and make me believe I can be or do anything.

Sometimes I take my camera along to up-skill my photography talents. That is if I can stop jigging and singing long enough to focus the lens. I thought I'd share with you a quick snap I took last night whilst enjoying Lucky Seven play, with Mr Scuba Dee featuring on the vocals. This photo pleases me a lot as it was a quick snap but turned out to be a winner to me.

Oh how well I remember that day. And that night. Thank you so much for that fabulous event. I too am grateful for the lovely friends I finally got to meet that lovely sunny Ballas' day.

Gilly, you know my greatest wish is for us to live in the same street. We could hang out , eat cake.... And you know all those crafty endeavors, they aren't such a big deal . I would still love a picnic in the park with you.

It was such a great day out, Gilly -my first venture as a new blogger meeting actual bloggers in person instead of just lurking on their sites. And I'm liking the sound of the get-together at Brown Hill too. Good luck with the job hunting.
