My Photo
Location: Katoomba, NSW, Australia

here I am in a little cottage that evokes the energies of my ancestral lands - a cottage on the moors of Cornwall, or on the cliff tops of Ireland or Scotland. It has a hearth. I am a hedge witch {of sorts}. I wear upcycled clothes, patchouli oil and Redback boots. I am a gypsy; an eccentric and a mystic [I often live with a foot in two worlds]. I serve my guests, tea from an old silver teapot. I love Vervain, yarrow, chamomile & mint. Star watcher and Moon gazer. story cloth weaver. keeper of family dreams and wishes. good friend and creator of life. herbal tea drinker and potion maker.

Plan ahead and dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer

a new convert

yes ! I am a Johnny Cash fan - as of tonight. I have just seen the movie * Walk the line* the story of Johnny Cash. It was wonderful. It wasn't my choice but the soul mate really wanted to see it...so I went in with my extra large bucket of popcorn and settled in ...and then the music started and my foot started tapping and I was entranced. I ended up crying a little during the movie when 'ring of fire' was sung.You see, my dad loved country music and I grew up with it - Slim Dusty, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash and lots of others. But I hated it, I would cringe when my friends came and out would come my dad with his vinyls and play the dreadful music. How embarrasing!

walk the line
- ooh girls, that Joaquin Phoenix is a bit of a honey in the movie

ohhh Johnny:) "These Hands" is one of my favorites* It was played at my grandpas funeral (the words really did fit my papa)& grandma insisted:)

These hands aren't the hands of a gentleman these hands are calloused and old
These hands raised a family these hands built a home
Now these hands raised to praise the Lord
These hands won the heart of my loved one and with hers they were never alone
If these hands filled their task then what more could you ask
For these fingers have worked to the bone
[ organ ]
Now don't try to judge me by what you'd like me be
For my life hasn't been a success
Some people have power but still they grieve
While these hands brought me happiness
Now I'm tired and I'm old and I haven't much gold
Maybe things ain't been all that I planned
Lord above hear my plea when it's time to judge me
Take a look at these hard working hands take a look at these hard working hands

Also the amazing piano perfomance
"rhapsody in blue" I remember his funeral as one of good music:)

That movie is a must see for me soon:)

Cash rocks Country live, they sang it well! I grew up with country music and have the fondest memories of his voice!

DH and I don't get to see movies often and therefore must wait them to either be sent to us via our dvd angel or wait for them to be released into the shops. Thanks to my Dad, I am a very well rounded person when it comes to music. Dad was an Elvis fan and made it his life time work to turn me into one too.... it worked!

I can't remember when we last went to the cinema, I think it was to see Shrek2 - that long ago!

I saw a music video for a song that Johnny Cash covered by the hard-rock band Nine Inch Nails, called Hurt. He put his own unique spin on the song and vocals, it was a very moving song indeed. I recommend it.

I saw Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash live and I've never forgotten it. He's truly a Country Music Legend. I still need to see the movie, all my girls have.
