Last weekend Bo and I escaped our everyday life and headed north, picking up one of my favourite people in the world on the way through the city. Bo’s beautiful godmother is one of my dearest childhood friends, she lives all the way in Melbourne and we don’t get to see each other often… but for our birthday she flew over and we got to road trip with her for 30 short and wonderful hours.
We headed north to Lancelin with some friends and for a short but wonderful getaway in one of WA’s most beautiful secrets.
With so much crazy going on right now, it was really important for me to find some calm and to connect with some beautiful people on the white sand beach of the WA coastline… when we came back to the city we were thrown headfirst into rehearsals, media appearances and all the excitement that goes along with it.
I was on national TV this week talking about the Nothing New Project – The mainstream media does tend to miss the point a bit… but if you want to watch me try to set them straight, you can do so here.
Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be standing on the stage of the Perth Concert Hall in front of a sold out audience of 1,700 people, with another couple of thousand watching live from the big screen in the middle of the city. I’m prepared, I’m ready and all the anxiety has been washed away… I have no idea how tomorrow will turn out, but I’m really excited to get in there and get inspired by everyone else and their amazing ideas.
Before I go walking onto stage tomorrow I’ll be imagining myself back here, on the white sand beaches dotted with bright purple shells and laughing children… breathing in the salt of the air and feeling the calm… remembering how important it is to be connected.
