Tripping On Through

I have been keeping busy and it's been full on and with certain changes in the wake of the last several months I have steadily kept forward motion and wrapping up this year. I made my way to see some old friends and reconnect and showed my partner my hometown of Los Angeles and got to drive him around, which was kool and my favorite part of my trip cause I got to show him things and tell him the stories I knew about old Hollywood and the folklore.

The damaged an the beauty's faded on the sheen of Hollywood but I think thats part of it's mystique. She's like Ms. Havisham a bride in her dated wedding dress that was once beautiful but just a dusty shell. I made it to Australia and saw my friends wedding and got to see some olf friends and felt really fortunate that I got to hang with them and carry on from where we started. I even made some new friends and the memory has been a great cap to end the year.

In the past year I went to Paris, Los Angeles twice and Melbourne Australia. I am very lucky to have done these things in the course of 12 months and be able to do them on my own resources and time frame. Looking back I feel very fortunate that I have been able to do this especially in this economy. And I am even more happy to say that me and Bren are doign well. It's not been easy and there have been a few curve balls
but I am stoked and lookign forward to the next year.

A lot has happened in the last year with work and the shop and I was hired by another corporate company for a gig and this time they paid me what I wanted which was nice. and I still feel that there is forward motion. So before I forget I would like to say thank you to everyone who was involved in this year. It was a pretty good year with it's fair share of shake ups and lulls.

The London riots were a sad case as the rest of the 3rd world countries move to rallying for real democracy. Youngster were pillaging Jd Sports and Vodaphone for disposable crap in the name of what ever bullshit reason. What ever it was it wasn't a valid reason to destroy peoples lives and neighborhoods. Amy left and that same day a friend's mother had died virtually at the same time. And there we were back stage at a PJ Harvey/Portishead show in a green room balling our eyes out.

The last year was far better then the one previous and I am glad and thankful for that. I am looking forward to seeing you around.

All the best
All my love
