Share the good news

I told myself to keep the photos on the memory card. That I wasn’t to touch them until everything else was sorted. I would wait until my uni work was in the kiln, that I’d quit my job, do my portfolio, tie up all my loose ends. And then, and only then, could I look at the photos.

But I couldn’t wait that long.

I went to Europe, and it cemented a whole lot of things in my heart. I uncovered what makes me happy, and what makes me sad, and what makes me “me”. So, I took a lot of photos, thought a lot of thoughts, and returned to Sydney.

And quit my job.

And did my portfolio.

OK, my uni project remains frighteningly, dauntingly incomplete.

But then I felt so happy, and so free, that I edited this little film. The song is by Philadelphia Grand Jury. It’s called “The Good News”. I hope it makes you feel as happy as I do.

  1. Miss Niccola!

    Congratulations on taking your life into your hands, and getting off the treadmill. I’m thrilled to bits for you – and love the film, and the song, and the cat on the bridge. Now get back to the Skulls!

  2. Exceptional post! Just the format of describing the trip blows me away, but you really couldn’t have realised it better, so all props to you and then some.
