My Life

Shallow water

Anxiety is a bitch. At the beginning of this month, my Dude was sprawled across our sofa couch as sun rays licked and lulled him into sleep while he pretended he was really concentrating on this stupid movie he insisted we watch. His eyelashes curved up as salutation. When I...

I’m on Peak Time!

This is a piece of my vision board. My vision board - my wishlist to the Universe even when I’m not sure how to work to achieve what’s on the list - has been up on my wall since the beginning of the year. As you see in the picture,...

Paid in full-ish

I just spent what feels like 10 minutes - although it was probably shorter than that - scrolling through Facebook. I found out that Masta Ace has a Tiny Desk Concert out. Good job, NPR! I mean, just two days ago, my Dude and I were in a convenience store...

Introducing i(m)bali

First it's name was Archives. I had even thought about how I was going to make the h in Archives the hdot logo. But then I asked the Universe to give me another name if Archives was not it. It came to me in the shower. And I am obedient...

A LITTLE TENDERNESS

My favourite thing in the world used to be talking to musicians… about music. This marks the 12th year since my byline first appeared in print and I’ll admit: my favourite thing in the world is still talking to musicians...about music. But I didn’t always know that that was what...

An African Soundcloud?

Can you remember when you first used Soundcloud? I can't. But I know that it's been a part of my life for a very long time. It was often a treasure trove for me when I was stuck at a desk in a job that I was quarter past bored...
