Release your love into the skies -
the universe will take care of it.
Rolled in stars and rested on clouds,
it will come back to you.
   Shiny, new and warm.
(Julie Holland)

I have always whistled and sung along to songs. Unfortunately not always with the right words. (Yes, I'm the one that unwittingly sang "There's a bathroom on the right" instead of "There's a bad moon on the rise".) I'm sure I'm not the only one...the important thing is to participate, sing along. It fills you with emotion whether it's happiness, sadness or just memories. Tra la, tra la...Feel free to contribute your singalong mishaps at (no awful YouTube karaoke clips tho!).

OK. So. It's done. My book of verse has been wrapped in hope and sent off to a publisher for consideration. Fingers and toes crossed. If they don't like it, I will darn well publish it myself because I know deep inside that people will enjoy, value and gain something from it.

Another day in Paradise here in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. Sun is out, tourists are happy...and it's a countdown to Valentines Day. Check out our 'countdown IOUs' from today until V day at Or why not wander into Hastings Street, check out our Valentines window at No.1, then stroll off for a glass of vino.

It's so important to look beyond the surface...I have written many verses about it. Every day in our shop this belief is backed up. No-one is how they appear to be, there is always so much more. That includes me, and that includes you. Be proud that you are individual, that you take the time to listen to others and not judge.
