Champagne & Stilletos

My sister Annie-easter (Annaliese to others) is awesome...she is so creative....rang her today to catch up & check she was still alive (its been a while!!!!) BUT she was just welcoming guests arriving for a "Champagne & Stilletos Party" - brunch/lunch do with the dress criteria being have to wear high heels & jewellery - all in aid of a lingerie party & a great get together. There was already lots of laughter & frivolity in the background so I think the champers was well & truly flowing!!!!

I love my sisters, they are awesome...if we lived near each other we could all dress up & drink champagne together!!!

My other beautiful sister Soph-a-Loph (Sophie to the rest of you) flies home from the UK in 2 weeks time - can't wait to see you, miss you tons....now counting down the days!!!!

Bless you both my sisters and my friends,

TK xx

What Is Playing In Eternity?

It must be separate from its maker,
his leg-gummata and the sound
of dream's Beethoven - pure
bullying of all who love
his 'none-so-great-as-me' outreach,
while the root postition stays
in soul's retreat from syphilis's
demi-moral storm. The music,
like Vespasian's coins, will never smell
of anything behind the foreskin. Time
has told its fractions - use your voice,
this breaking world is crutch enough
to be a scaffold for the nowhere near.

And her description of despair
affords a little time to listen:
she was devoted to a more
oblivious obsession, yet some days
there would be space for music
and a favourite piece would play
among the circling furniture,
beyond the deafness of drawn curtains.
Strange that I can see them, stepping from
the record sleeve, three nuns in habits
inhabiting E Flat,
empowered as angels to command
a truth more generous than love's.

Precious Thoughts

In recent times I have been plagues with seemingly increasing headaches that are becoming quite debilitating. It has meant I have had to do what I am told (yep thats hard for me!!!!) & rest more. In doing so I have had time to pause and reflect on beautiful thoughts, wishes and prayers. Here is today's favourite:

Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.

On wings of prayer and songs of glory, our hopes and dreams can only but fly.....


Wedding Bliss

Well we went to Jodi & Nathan's wedding on the weekend and it was just beautiful. Considering all the upheavals of recent times and the stress they have been under these last 4-5 months it is amazing what can be achieved - with the help of gorgeous friends.

Jodi's mum would have loved her daughter's special day and Aunty Chris was there in spirit, Jodi said she could feel her mum with her, so that was a comfort to her.

The wedding took place at Riverside Rowing Club right on our lovely Torrens River and the ceremony took place on the balcony just a the day began to close in.

Jodi was resplendant in a lovely 50's inspired HOT PINK dress.....with her attendants in black with sexy, sexy shoes!!!

The wedding cake was made by a friend - LOTS and LOTS of adorable chocolate crackles...just so sweet.

My thanks to Jodi & Nathan for including us in their special day.
