can anyone else hear that dog barking?

On Saturday night I had the real privilege
of joining birthday celebrations for
along with The Big One and Spaghetti Arms,
at The Barking Dog restaurant
P.R.S. actually introduced it to me last year 
and I have been back quite a few times since

The atmosphere there is always so much fun,
(helped along by good company 
and a couple of bottles of wine ... of course ...) 
candlelight and good music,
and the decor is quirky and tasteful without trying too hard
- they manage to strike a really good balance

Despite the late hour, 
I opted for the delicious steak and chunky chips

and champagne jelly with berries and ice cream


thank you PRS for being born

You appeared, unexpected.
You with your jet black hair and dancing eyes.
My heart was broken
Crushed under the footfall of those who did not understand
But your hand, it was soft
Your kiss was for me
And your heart was honest.
It laid itself bare.
You spread it before me like a beautiful blanket
An ocean of colour and comfort
And for the first time I felt safe,
Safe to take the shoes from my feet
To dance freely upon the contours.
I was released and felt beautiful.

For the first time I felt beautiful.

And when your eyes met mine, I believed.

fantastic images from

 I am currently rehearsing 
David Harrower's Blackbird

There is such a resonance between all that I have been exploring within the rehearsal room, and these photographs.
The isolation, vulnerability and starkness.

I love being inspired by another art form,
and how emotions can be captured in so many ways.
It's like it never ends - 
one artist passing on inspiration to another.
I want to be a link in that chain.

cathedrals in my heart

I turn the music up, I got my records on
I shut the world outside until the lights come on
Maybe the streets alight, maybe the trees are gone
I feel my heart start beating to my favourite song

Please Topshop, can you restock your online shop with size 5s?

I really need a pair of these boots.

testing one, two

I think I might be back.
Back to blogging.
I'm not really sure what happened.
I didn't mean to be away for so long, 
time just lost the run of itself. 
The bizarre thing is that the longer I was away 
from Hawk&Fallow, the more I missed it. 
It was like a friend I knew I should contact but just couldn't and then the longer it went on the more I felt bad for not contacting instead of just picking up the phone. 
I do that an awful lot actually.

I have a lot of news I suppose, but I'll let it filter through.
I was on tour with Dunsinane for ten weeks and then I went to the windy city Chicago for ten days for a little holiday.

I feel like there have been changes,
and there are more to come.
It feels a bit uncomfortable but necessary.

Head up, somehow.
