2020 has been a wretched year. Apart from the political tragedy that is America, Covid 19 has destroyed economies the world over and here in Australia, bushfires, in America tornadoes and floods, the death of so many icons, Sean Connery, Chadwick Boseman, Kobe Bryant and so many, so much more, makes this the most depressing year I have ever known. If a year was going to flush me out of hiding then it is indeed 2020.
So here I am and of course I'm wondering if anyone even remembers me. It has been at least 6 or 7 years since I last picked up my pen here. So what happened in those 'wilderness' years? Well I'm going through a divorce, I survived pancreatic cancer but I'm having trouble adjusting to having large sections of my abdomen missing, I became a Director of a charity trying desperately to feed the homeless and hungry here in Brisbane. I live alone and have been focusing on my music and photography as a way to get me through the very, very, very painful and difficult days due to the cancer. My music is now available worldwide on Spotify, Itunes, Apple music etc and I'm proud to say it was achieved when the cancer was at its most diabolical. I'm still recovering from surgery the scars of which are so right angled I can't even tell my grandkids tales of fighting off sharks, unless there's something like 'geometric' sharks out there.
I hope during my absence that life has been kinder to you all than it has been to me. I look forward to reconnecting with some very amazing people here. Y'all take care and yes I will be posting regularly again. I wish you all a blessed 2021.
