A phone call from Bowie
A song with Cave
A collaboration with Wally
A tour around America
A retreat in Bali
A cosy home with friends
A sparkling love affair
A lotta sex
A wad(s) of cash
A heap of performing
A fun duo act
A long hot summer
All our wishes to come true
And more of the same

"There are moments of crisis and frisson in our lives which inform us that we've somehow crossed an inner threshold and are changed. Thus moving from one state of being into an unknown other obliges us to face our innermost insecurities, and it requires faith, a willingness to leap off the ladder of ordered existence."
Burning Man 2011, Aug 29 - Sept 5. Come one, come all.

Sick of going out. Sick of the word no. Sick of plans. Sick of changing plans. Sick of having to get up in the morning. Sick of spending money. Sick of waiting for a cab. Sick of worrying about closing over.
Like dancing. Like people. Like music. Like Bowie. Like booze. Like 90s. Like old movies. Like food. Like picnics. Like late nights. Like wishing on the stars. Like walking home. Like holidays. Like making love.

This is what makes me happy right now. This idea.
For the first time the New Year will actually feel like a NEW year for me.
I have vague outlines. No plans. Plans are all about probabilities.
What use is the probable? The weather report gets it wrong and then you win the lotto.
Be gone institution. Hello little-known.
