Happy Australia Day featured in All Out Emotion 15 February 2012

Today is Australia Day – 26 January 2012 My heart always swells with pride to be an Australian when this special day comes around. I have been dancing to Aussie Music this morning and thinking about how lucky we are to live in this beautiful country. The sun is shining, it is 23 degrees… writing and dancing this morning, art this afternoon and the semi finals in the Australian Open (Tennis) tonight between Federer and Nadal.

Ah yes a perfect day :) :) :)

I hope all my Australian Friends and my International Friends have a beautiful Australia Day too.

Just Me. Natural. Self Portrait taken at the dawn of 2012 on 7 January.

Creating art and writing is like breathing to me, it keeps me alive. If I stop creating my world shrinks and contracts. When I start to create again it expands and is filled with colour. I feel whole. To create is to be completely, unabashedly alive.
