The first 6 films as of half an hour ago are in a padded envelope and on their way to get developed, scanned and a whole other bundle of stuff plus a free film
Haha excited but massively nervous that something may of happened to them but fingers are royally crossed that it hasn’t.
Since I’ve left Australia and come back to England, life has been a bit of a movie, like I’m living and breathing someone else’s life but there have been some beautiful moments which have made me love being back…
Going to the beach with Rack the dog, Al and her Dad. It was good to walk up a British beach again (but there was no urge to go wading in) plus when I left Australia I thought nothing would ever match up to it, as it was one of the best versions of everything but I never felt this. A British beach isn’t perfect but its where my child self loved going and it will always be something that makes me smile for all its imperfections and chaos in Summer because its memorable and noticeable and just makes me smile.
I love the sky – its always the perfect empty space of reflection and appreciation, so when I saw two rainbows after all the terrential, gale force rain I couldn’t help but smile while I smoked drenched.
Last night another smiler happened with the sky because of the moon, it was bigger, fuller and lower than I’ve ever seen it, it was hypnotic as we drove down the street.
Now the snow. Glad its gone. But on this day went for a walk with Rack, Al and her Dad after a woeful 2 weeks with work and a half boiled hand and just had fun. Al and her dad ended up having a snowball fight, rack was being friendly to all the dogs plus seeing loads of families on a field each building there own snowman and having there own snowball fight it made me smile and truly love the human race.
I felt sad for the lonely snowman that were left after the families had gone home. But I imagined them playing in the fields after the humans had gone, having there own snowball fight.
Saw these two on our way home from the walk, a mini snowman and an owl and it just made me smile because these snowmen wont be lonely because they have each other and there creators near them everyday.
And thats a rap of my little moments of being back in England shot on my phone.
There are many more moments but there trapped in my memory to pull them out when sad or lonely;
Seeing my family and dogs again
Meeting new people and catching up with old friends.
There are reasons to be cheerful in this quaint country but occasionally it gets hard to remember.
I’m hoping that when my films come back it will bring a flash memory of moments that have been and long gone.
Thankyou for your time its much appreciated because time is precious, except for when you’re working because you wish your time away.
