MELBOURNE: SO HAPPENS LIFE & FAQs


To answer a few questions: As the colours of Aussie autumn set into the cityscape, I find myself once again wondering who the hell stole the last few months. And as I look back, the memories of events just the beginning of the year seem like they've been dusting in the shelf for ages. I get that nostalgic grip when I think of walking down snowy streets of Vilnius, whenever someone mentions Eurovision it feels like I'm talking about a thing from my teenage years, and the pictures of sunny Dubai got covered with Great Ocean Road, Adelaide, Canberra and dog park of Darebin Parklands... The urgency of life disappeared and the immediacy of the experiences became the key to staying sane, enjoying life to its fullest and living in the now. Facebook became the thing of the past and my newfound friend Lisa makes me feel like I'm living in the Braveheart movie all the time. I've recently had a shoulder pop out of place and called police on a possum. I saw a guy in a show play piano made out of mousetraps and then decided my life is complete. My little king of the castle de La Clark is turning one and a half, got his first trike and never shuts up. And other than making watercolor greeting cards for family and a few other artworks, I can't think of a single thing I can show off with. I'm getting slowly sucked into permaculture and spend my mornings covered in mud from 10 different dogs jumping to get treats from me. There's a time to sow and time to reap. A time to run full pelt and dive into that pile of adventures life has to offer, and a time to rest and think what's next. A time to laugh out loud, and a time to put on some 70's music and chill the f*** out. Yes, I know that everything is possible, it's just a matter of what do we want to be possible. At the moment I'm not a musician, I'm not a writer, I'm not the wonderwoman everyone knows me to be. I don't want to be. I'm a mama with a giant dog and beautiful friends, their kids and nasty Melbourne weather. So happens life. I love it. To answer the question asked the most: Eurovision burned a big hole in my pocket and the music video for "Do We Dare" has to be collectively funded (that's the part where you can help soon, yay!), but you can hear it very soon, so stay tuned, stay positive and watch this space . Love you all! Peace, Love & Rock'n'roll#Eurovision #dare #melbourne #life #artist #wilmala #dubai #florence #greatoceanroad #wineandcheese #yoga #smiles
