So Long Red Bubble

This journal entry is now very old. I am keeping it up for the record only. Thanks.

Hi all who dwell within,

Surrendered now
Come thick come fast
The deed is done
And my time has passed

I’ve decided to take some time out from Red Bubble.

One reason is my need to break the cycle of RB addiction – I have never experienced internet addiction before this and want to do something about it. But more importantly, I need to concentrate on my Masters Degree and an internship to Geneva in September. Creativity back on pause….

I’ll been acepted as a student to attend some UN meetings there with a group of other students and workers in the Australian refugee sector. Its so amazingly exciting and important. (I also hope to drop in to see Marie in France while I am there).

My particular focus is on HIV/AIDS as well as gay and lesbian issues as they impact on asylum seeker / refugee applications, assessments and approvals as well as implications for being returned to rights violating countries. This all means I won’t be around for a couple of months…

When I spontaneously return in a new chameleon cloak, you may or may not still be here. My email address is in my bubble (which will still be here) so please feel free to purposfuly, randomly, flippantly or accidentally drop me a line. Would be great to hear from you and keep in touch. Thanks to all my watchers, favouriters, friends, supporters, encouragers, collaborators and those that have given me feedback or challenged me – its all good .) Luv ya, your all stars and starlets!

For me RB has been much more than I ever expected. It’s motivated me to explore my creative photography and poetry in ways I never imagined – after years of not touching a camera and from my scratchings in various note books and scraps of toilet paper. For me, its the democratic RB community which makes it real and gives it its ultimate appeal – ballancing the commercial side really well. And even though I always said sales, fame and fortune are, and probably never will be, my motivation, I have non-the-less made a couple of sales which has been awsome. Thanks Red Bubble team – you rockabilies!

So…for now…and its a bit sad…miss you already…
Ciao, a bientot, auf wiedersehen

PS, with the new RB changes you might glimps me randomly watching what’s going on from time to time ,)

Love is a Wing

If you have courage in the bowels of your soul
You can take off

If you have honesty in your kiss
You can fly

If you have angels on the soles of your feet
You can soar

I am falling
For life
Don’t catch me
