I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.
what a beautiful ad.

"Meet a boy. Or a girl. Let them ask you on a date. Eat a meal, drink some wine. Tell them a few small things: the deets on your job, the name of your best friend. If you like them, let them walk you home. If you like them, hug them. Say yes when they ask if they can see you soon. Think of their hands til then. Their nose, their breath. Next time: ride some bikes; get ice cream cones. Walk in the park. Breathe in: the day, the trees, their words and their sweat. Lay in bed. If you like them touch their hand. If you like them, kiss them. Show them pics of the cat you had when you were a kid. Read them a page out loud from your all-time fave book. Tell them your fave dumb joke, let them see you laugh hard. If you still like them, take them to meet your mom, your dad. Your friends. Take them to the home you grew up in. Drive down a long road in the night. Play rock and roll, let them hear you sing. If you still like them, show them your heart. If you still like them, trust you are safe. Tell them what brings you joy, and pain. Tell them about your friends and fam who've died. Trust they will hear you. Trust they won't hurt you. This is a big part of deal: the light and the dark. Tell them "I love you". Let them help you heal. Make a choice, then take the next step. Say "bye" to your old life. Brunch with a book, a home of just your stuff. Choose a gem. Wash your face, wear a rose in your hair. Wear a white dress. Pick a date, storm or sun. Build a shrine to say "I do" next to, in front of friends and fam. Make a home. Make a fire. Buy their soap, brush your teeth side by side. Run them a warm salt bath. Watch them sleep. Make your bed. Make a child. Have faith, what you have is pure. No one can take it from you. Watch the days of your life fade and bloom. Thank the moon, the air, the sun. Be peace and faith; not fear and fight. Don't be scared. Where it is dark there are stars."

What an amazing concert.
Found a girl in the Melbourne Au Pairs Facebook group who was wanting to go, so I messaged her and she just happened to be from Grimsby, Ontario :) haha such a small world! I bought tickets and Amie and I met up a week before the concert one night last week. We found out pretty quickly that we have pretty similar taste in music, so that was cool.
I picked up Amie and we drove to the train station and took the train to Flinders, grabbed some dinner at Grill'd...kinda like The Works at home, but with a ton of veggie burgers as well, which was nice for Amie cuz she's vegan...so much respect for her, wow, not sure I could ever do that!
Then we walked to Rod Laver Arena, about 20 minutes to get there. Even though our seats were at the very very top, we were still so pumped because it was like half the size of the Sky Dome, so we still had a great view. Apparently it seats 35,000, Volker told me.
And another incredibly exciting part was the opening band...Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes! How does that even happen?? And before they came on, was a guy named Willy Mason, who was also unreal. So much talent, could barely handle it.
And then Mumford and Sons. Gah. Just blown away by their real talent. They opened with "Lovers' Eyes" from their new album and it was just perfect.
