Photograph, my fav.

It’s the only thing that I know. Another night of simple music, the stage empty with one microphone, one recorder.

We keep this love in a photograph
We made these memories for ourselves
Where our eyes are never closing
Hearts are never broken
And times are forever frozen still

It can mend your soul. We stood like/and with sixteen year olds waiting for Ed to come out and sing.

Oh you can fit me
Inside the necklace you got when you were 16
Next to your heartbeat
Where I should be
Keep it deep within your soul
You won’t ever be alone. A man with a soft voice, perfectly coloured sleeved tattoos, impeccable guitar playing, live music.

When I'm away
I will remember how you kissed me
Under the lamppost 
Back on 6th street
Hearing you whisper through the phone
Wait for me to come home
Because at the end of the day it’s one’s character & presence that really grows on you! Have a listen..

Not Happy Jan!

Had I been a person of authority, Sydney’s unemployment rate would have significantly increased in the past twenty four hours.

What would I have done?

Screen Shot 2015-03-13 at 4.34.30 PM

  • Fired all traffic controllers working at the Sydney Entertainment Quarter for wasting 47 minutes of my life in a car park.
    Reason: Inconvenience.
  • Fired the McDonald’s drive through cashier for taking 7 minutes to make me a Cappuccino at 1 am and almost forgetting my cookies.
    Reason: Customer dissatisfaction.
  • Fired the store manager at McDonald for employing a staff member that allowed the drive through timer to be set off multiple times.
    Reason: Poor staff management.
  • Fired the McDonald attendant for forgetting to give me a spoon to eat my Cappuccino froth.
    Reason: Customer complaint.
  • Fired the McDonald’s serving policy manager for not training their staff to give out spoons.
    Reason: Escalated customer complaint.
  • The missing spoon was very important.
    Reason: The froth is a vital part of a Cappuccino.
  • Fired the drive instructor that issued the man driving in my lane his license.
    Reason: Incompetent driving and danger on the road.
  • Fired everyone responsible or not responsible in all of the above for consuming my mind and having missed my highway exit.
    Reason: Just because.

This morning I would have further contributed to the figures by ..

  • Firing every project developer / property manager / structural engineer / any other parties related including the milk man that had anything to do with the design and construction of Top Ryde car park.
    Reason: WHAT!

BUT I would have hired..

  • Hozier
    Reason: To write a  ‘Take me to bed ‘ song, one that can come handy in the early hours of the morning.
  • Hannah Reid
    Reason: For living. Her voice is incredible!

Enjoy x

Just remember why you started

Often the things you do begin to mean nothing, but if it is something, just remember why you started.

The below are two perfect examples of talent, driven by success, and motivated by passion.

He paused what he was working on and his eyes lit up as I picked up the sketch across. He explained what it was and why he drew it but I couldn’t tell you what he was saying, instead, I was taken back by his love for what he was doing. It was a free giveaway, so I gave him what I could, but there is no price tag for his determination.

Michael David Rosenberg
Passenger, is a singer-songwriter. His passion for music grew while he busked around cities of the world. Now, performing live with only a guitar and his husky voice he makes an incredible success story.

The below video was captured during his Sydney tour in January 2015. There is not a single word I could say that would explain the atmosphere back in the arena.

You will need to face a thousand no’s before a single Yes!
