On the radiooooooo!!!!

posted in: The Journey, The Music | 0

This morning, mid meditation, I received a call from a friend who was screaming incoherently. I was able to make out ‘Metro fm’ and ‘your song’. This morning my song Aching Head was played on Metro fm. This is a big deal for me because my dad worked for the radio station for many years and it is one of the biggest national commercial radio stations in South Africa. I am so happy :)

Don’t forget that you can get the album delivered to you or you can buy it via iTunes.

Silence, Home & Stuff

I’ve been quiet because I went home for a bit. I needed the quiet time with people that I love.

  • Discovered that I am a fan of Come Dine With Me (not so crazy about the SA version though)
  • Stayed up late with my little brother, talking, listening to music & laughing
  • Stayed up late with my mom drinking wine, getting some great advice and laughing
  • Had lots of ‘aha’ moments (thanks Oprah)
  • Didn’t miss my loud, obnoxious neighbours
  • Sold many albums & delivered them personally (except one: it was raining and I was already sick so I asked little bro to jump out of car and deliver it)
  • Drove my dad’s car (A LOT)
  • Broke out in a gross rash
  • Ate so much bad food
  • Made food for everyone (breakfast, dinner and lunch)
  • Read a book that my nephew got out of the school library for me to read. I buy him books all the time, he wanted to return the favour.
  • Went out with little bro and his friends and was a responsible designated driver.
  • Didn’t get to see as many people as I wanted to
  • Rubbed my mom’s back and feet
  • Bonded with dad over books I got him
  • Helped nephew with homework
  • Let my niece be a sulky teenager
  • Yelled at my niece for being a rude teenager
  • Went to see my big bro’s house
  • Helped big bro with some of his work ideas.
  • Had G&Ts with little bro
  • Taught dad how to make breakfast smoothies
  • Learned how to use my parent’s super complicated oven (first had to change the language from German to English first)
  • Didn’t exercise at all. Not. Even. Once.
  • Parents took us out to celebrate me being home & little brother being some sort of a genius.
  • Made my mom have a piece of sushi and dad tasted squid.
  • Got bossed around by 7 year old niece who wanted to watch Beauty & the Beast a million times
  • Lost a family member
  • My heart felt like it had cracked. I am heartbroken about the loss.
  • Took the bus back to Cape Town (long story). It’s 18 hours on the road
  • Didn’t hate taking the bus
  • Came back to my empty flat and here we are….

Something tells me it is time to get back to yoga and training. My time at home was basically me overdosing on love and food.

CurateZAR

I was recently approached by the folks at CurateZAR to tweet for them for a week.

I wasn’t entirely sure what they wanted me to do because I have my own twitter account: @BlckPorcelain. Basically CurateZAR is agreat platform to get to know different South Africans; what makes them tick, what do they do all day, their surroundings etc. Every week there is a different person and they share their experience in THEIR South Africa.

I was very nervous yesterday because I didn’t really know what to tweet about, but the followers were all very kind and played nicely. This is only week 2, so its fairly new. Follow @CurateZAR and meet a different South African every week.

Healing

Sometimes there is so much ‘brain noise’ that I am unable to heal. This is a great reminder.
