Its Not So Bad

Two weeks ago while I was on twitter I came across a tweet asking for a singer to perform at a matric ball. I found out more about it and as it turns out, it was a ball for the Athlone School for the Blind and Disabled. Their very first matric ball. The person organising this, read about it on freecycle,org; Wanted: Matric Ball for Blind and Disable Learners. She immediately sprung into action. Withing 12 hours she was getting donations and food sponsours.

This awesome person is @heikebru and I didn’t know anything about her, but I wanted to get involved. So last week on Friday (28 August) I performed at the matric ball and had an awesome time. At the end of the night I was so moved by the work of one woman who decided to respond to a post. As soon as she made the decision to help, she attracted people who also wanted to make a difference. Most times I read about how awful things are in South Africa, but people like Heike (and everyone who came on board) make me think that its not all so bad. I fell asleep with a smile on my face thinking about how happy those grd 12 learners were.

The theme was ‘A Night at the Oscars’. I thought I had better get dressed up, so I put on my Lazuli dress and pretended I was really going to the Oscars ;)

When you feel like its all falling apart, make a difference and you’ll see that its not so bad after all.

Almost Done

At the end of October, I will be done with the new album. It has been almost 2 and a half years in the making. WHAT?! And I think I will be so happy when the whole album is don When we started working on the album, I thought it would be a few months max. It truly has been exhausting to have taken so long to finish a body of work. It has just left me feeling ‘incomplete’.

Every time I feel so bleh, I try to look back at my journey and congratulate myself. In 2008 I worked on my first EP and wrote Teacup. I was taking piano lessons at the time and it was the first song I had ever written. Listen to the lyrics, I wasn’t lying.

I truly am just a ‘Teacup girl’
