The Nancy Sikes

This friday The Nancy Sikes have a super fabulous Easter show on at the Fly By Night in Fremantle. This friday April 3rd, at 8pm I believe.

I'll be there...providing a little bit of beautiful entertainment of my own...not quite of the musical kind - you'll just have to come along and see for yourselves!

The Nancy Sikes describe themselves as sounding thus:
the fancy bikes!
the prancy mikes!
the antsy psychs!
the chancy pikes!
the dancy dikes!
the trancy spikes!
the lancy strikes!

...no more to be said I would think!

Check out their myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/thenancysikes

...hope to see you there.

Boy On A Wire by Jon Doust

Last week I attended the book launch of Boy On A Wire, written by Jon Doust.

Jon is a Western Australian writer, comedian, myers-briggs practitioner, facilitator and among other things, a truly wonderful and precious friend of mine. Boy On A Wire is his debut novel, drawing on his personal experiences at boarding school.

I haven't yet had the pleasure to read his book (I'm waiting for Jon - now based in Albany - to sign the copy I bought and send it back to me...hmm...) I have only heard wonderful things about Boy On A Wire and cannot imagine it to be anything but hilarious, honest, poignant, quirky and roundly beautiful.

Maybe you'll get to read it before I do...c'mon Jon I'm waiting! ;o)

so to begin...

I have started a blog...

I don't quite know where it will go, what I will do with it, but I am beginning something and everything has to have a beginning. Sometimes, you just have to start from nowhere and find where you are going.


Ngnapabungu ... It is the name I was given at birth by the Aboriginal community I lived amongst in northwestern Australia. Around the time of my birth - September - huge thunderstorms rolled across the land. I was called Ngnapabungu - bringer of rain.

So as I begun, I begin this. Silly as it may seem I am here and I am beginning.

It is often said that "when it rains it pours"... I can only wait and see.
