At first, spending time with him felt like guilty pleasure, even though there was nothing to feel guilty about. He came without the complications, and though I liked that about him, it confused the living crap out of me, because I was used to complicated men. But with him, everything felt simple. Living life in the moment is the only ...

Pianowriter I got inked, and I completely neglected to write about it. So I turned 25 in October, and I got thinking about my life a little bit. Fucking quarter century, man. What have you done? I mean. What have you done??? I’ve seen a lot of shit in my life. Good, bad and ugly. Loved. Lost. Survived heart break. Made ...

Road Trip #1 – UNAWATUNA When I was a kid, we used to travel up to Kurunegala very often, because my Grandmum lived there. My dad and his 2 brothers would pack up the families and go to visit, almost every weekend. We mostly traveled late on a friday night, and while my brother slept like a little demon in the other corner, I woud ...

“I’d rather own little and see the world, than own the world and see little of it.” About a month or two ago, I watched a video a friend had posted of his journeys around the island with his friends, and ever since I watched it, all I’ve been able to do is fantasize about travelling. And yes I want ...

My computer is like my window to the world. I sit here for hours on end – staring through the window at things I wish I was doing, and places I wish I could be. I want to pack a bag, leave, and go see things I haven’t seen before. I want to be brave enough to travel. I want ...

If there’s one thing Ive learned over the past year, coming to know a being who likes to communicate through books, songs, billboards, moments of clarity and even signs on the back of tuktuks – it’s that nothing is ever a conincidence. Today happens to be Easter, and also my sons 4th birthday. Two years ago his dad and I ...

I’m a Jill of many trades. I sing, I draw, I design. The singing is my part time pet project, the drawing – I do for kicks, and well, the designing thing – that’s what I do for a living.  I used to work for a Social Media Marketing company as a content editor/graphic designer. Sounds pretty decent right? But ...

So here’s another song that didn’t quite make it to the recording studio. But the lyrics are pretty, I think. The good news is – 3 of my songs are in production as we speak! *silent scream!* It’s always been a dream for me, and now it’s actually happening, and I couldn’t be more pleased. Do send me some good ...

This year, after the Roy/Tho which was in March or April, I stole borrowed one of the prefects wicker hat, (I have a thing for head gear) and took a picture. I still have it on Fb, the hat says 2012. And I remember thinking even then, that this year was going to be a big one. Now that its ...

I’ve recently taken up songwriting, which is a new and scary and awesome experience for me. Anyone who knows me knows that music is my world, and I don’t really know where I would be without it.  And while I  always wished I could write my own songs, I always told myself it was impossible. I just couldn’t work out the intricacies ...

It was a regular Friday afternoon, and I was working as usual, until I got hungry. Armed with my wallet and phone, I set off to but a lunch packet from the shop down the road. I walked back in to office with and left my wallet on my desk, had lunch and continued work as usual. It wasn’t until ...

Dear Body, I know our relationship hasn’t been all that great in the past, but I just want to say thank you. See, this morning, when you woke me up 10 minutes before my alarm was meant to go off, just because you know what a lazy bum I am, I realized that you still love me.  I also want ...

I wake up at 8am, to sea gulls and a sea captain screaming ‘ARRRE you ready kids???’ The kids scream back; ‘Aye aye, captain!!’ The captain jovially yells – ‘ I can’t heaaaarrrr youuu!!!’ Yes, the Spongebob theme song is my alarm. I’m up early on a Sunday, because I have to come in to office to finish some freelance ...

The Sun “I am the Sun; The center of your universe. My love for you burns ever so intense, And its undeniable gravitational pull will set all the pieces of your life in perfect orbit around me. Let your very world revolve around me, my darling; Let me be the center of your universe. Let me be your Sun.”

I’m bursting with things I want, and things want to do! I want to sing with different bands, I want to color my hair, I want to get a new tattoo, I want to go to the gym, I want an iPad, I want a gold watch, I want a car!!! Ok, I’ll admit that’s a lot of things to ...

Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when you’ve left a boat-load of things unsaid. I’ve known the dude for about a year now, and I was one of the first people he asked about moving back down-under. Of course I said ‘yes, man, go for gold’; it was the best thing that could happen to him. What I wasn’t expecting ...

You paint the stars in the sky One by one, Just to make me smile. You compose musical masterpieces Complete with violins and grand pianos Just to amaze me. You thrill me with sounds of the ocean, and wind chimes that sway in the rain. You gave me ears that are hungry for music, And now you satisfy my needs. ...

Two and a half years ago, L called me up and said they could use an extra voice and a pianist for their band. At the time, it was a two man band, just the guitars, and they felt I could add to it. I’d always wanted to sing for people, and although I didn’t think my voice was exemplary,  ...

6 Months of Change Happiness: something I’ve been focusing on a lot lately. It’s so simple to just ‘be happy’ but often times I find that I’d rather sit around and feel sad than make that conscious choice to be happy. And that’s exactly what it is. A choice. Yesterday, I was feeling crappy. Someone insulted my body on a public forum. I don’t ...

Vision It was dawn. The ocean was calm and quiet, and the sky above it glowed a rich golden orange. The sun shone its rays from behind the clouds, hiding its true force and power. It was a glorious morning indeed. Seated cross-legged on the surface of the ocean was a being – as tall as mount Everest. Her magnitude ...
