a name

"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

have a challenge for everyone: find the meaning of my name, without breaking out into song. 

i Am
  • a song, well two songs (Beatles and Guns 'n Roses)
  • a hurricane, 2001
  • then you get to being the feminine version of being a Michael or not to be confused with me minus an l 
  • at school there were 5 of us. 
  • an actress. 
  • Just found out that I'm also a German singer
  •  the mother of Heath Ledger's child. (amped about that one
  • a first lady 
turning talent into beauty
but appreciating where things comes from. 

two in one day

.time on hands.

What happens to a family minus a computer:
you get time on your hands: 

conversations start re occurring

and then, the fight for the computer:

Have a great weekend  everyone

I Can't Wait To Come Home - Greg Coplen

Its only Tuesday and I'm thinking about last year this time.
Last year this week I was getting ready to spend a weekend in the Eastern Cape.
Which turned into a 5day adventure just to get back by the 11th. 
Still some of the best memories. 

I've grown accustom to being very productive in winter. Call it cabin fever or over eager, don't read too much into it. 

New play list: 
next step is getting this play list thing all hip and downloadable
until then, go find the songs on your [insert media player of choice] (soon to be icloud)
or make your own comfort mix. 

Silver Stallion - Cat Power       
Armistice - Phoenix       
Blind - TV on the Radio
Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa - Hot Chip & Peter Gabriel
Fake Empire - The National               
I Can't Wait To Come Home Greg Coplen       
Thieves - She & Him      
Hugging My Grudge - The Boy Least Likely To    
Strictly Game - Harlem Shakes           
New Start To Start - Hark The Herons     
Girls - The 23 String Band    
Barny Rubble - The Twang      
Moving To New York - The Wombats
Psychic City -YACHT              
Main Attraction - Howard Roark        
Never Been Alone - The Cutaway      
Take a Vacation! - The Young Veins

Many things happen in June
[to the sounds of: Rococo  - Arcade Fire]

June used to mean the end of the middle of the year. Teachers filling your head with what seems silly and gearing up for exams. Last year June was us (South Africa) gearing up for the World Cup. 

For me, June is means touching base. The mix of the winter and the cabin fever leads to walks down many lanes of winter pasts. Old remedies to fight the cold in form of food, clothing and shelter. 

Or, exam/crunch time: what must get done before an hour of studying is done:
  • study time table (colour coordinated with weekend plans clearly marked)
  • tea
  • re arrange desk
  • fire
  • feed any animal in house
  • tea
  • computer
  • tea
  • stoke fire
  • re do study time table cause you realized missed out on a must attend event
  • save cat from amazing sleep
  • tea
  • fire
  • feed yourself
  • look at books and study for about 45mins then,
  • "i think i need more tea"
Then this amazing thing happens, well for me
among all the grumbling of cold fingers, toes and noses.
there is always that one day. The day when the sun does shine, it may be an ineffective sunshine, you'll have to stand in the "light" for about 5 minutes to feel any defrosting happen but alas. you breath the breath of mist and your face appreciated the sunshine. 

June, is when the could are at their best.
Well, the clouds the sea and the sand.
