I write songs.

This is the title of one of them written when I was in my early 20s.

I have it recorded on a digital recording device.

Oh how I would like to learn how to convert from zip disc to pc so that I could share it!!

The sun sets and you come alive, and that’s the way it is..
You capture me when you arrive, that’s when I listen most,
We have a toast to celebrate the music that you bring,
And you were growing big inside me, forcing me to sing
Forcing me to sing….

Lucky me.
The ghost is in my body

See me sing the music that it wrote..

Hear the whisper
The inspiration

What is in my head…




melanie, collette, music, guitar, sorrow, ghostly, ghost, songwriter, self, portrait, emotive, strings, instrument, hand

An emotive self-portrait photographic artist, dabbling in an array of other subjects. Most of my pictures are of self (other subjects occasionally pop up), and all are taken by self.

Living with AS/Aspergers, and using RB as a ubiquitous haven for self-expression. Thankyou for visiting.

    You are trying to make a photographic print of your inner self..and put it into words..what we see is esthetic beauty and what we get is a sense of what may be hidden inside — covered by beautiful features and words
