As life moves on, I find my scope changes and my world gets a little smaller in terms of the people I trust and love, those who one keeps close and who one turns to. If you reflect on it - you'll realise that some of those you think of now in times of need or just happiness, are quite different from even a year ago. I suppose this is the continuous evolution of your mind, heart and spirit... Your life progressing and shifting as you change and grow older. Or I'm just a very changeable creature. Nah, its evolution. Fact is, I'm a very lucky girl with the people I have in my life - feel like I ought to tell them.

Genesis. I was on my parents balcony this afternoon in the sunshine, looking at the fresh greenery of the garden after days of rain and I realised how much I love this country. How much I love seeing coconut trees at every possible turn, hearing the birds and the distant bus horns. I feel like I'm turning a small corner on this strange feeling I've been having for the past 6 months, though I'm not sure where its going...

Times like these.

I am a new day rising 
I'm a brand new sky 

To hang the stars upon tonight 

I am a little divided 
Do I stay or run away 
And leave it all behind?

Just found this photo from 8 years ago at Pringo's wedding. What a journey I was about to embark on, I had absolutely no idea that that year and every year after were going to be so damn good, confusing and filled to the brim with more than I could imagine.

Today I confronted the choice of paths, and how sometimes though you feel like you need to pick one to go down, you don't actually have to. You can spend time thinking about it and considering it, and also let go and allow life to take over and determine what you ought to do.

I visited the House of Siris today, it was pretty interesting... blew me away on some fronts and on others I feel unsure. But I suppose thats a part of the experience. There's never one right answer I realise.

Electric Peacock Festival 2013. EPIC.

The Electric Peacock Festival happened again. We did it, we achieved what we hoped and in fact more than we expected which is such an incredibly weird feeling. Having woken up with dread and despair in my stomach in the past, to feel happy, to nod knowingly and hear so much praise it has been an extremely humbling and motivating experience. Tinie Tempah, New Young Pony Club, Asvajit, Muku, Good Music Movement, Julius Mitchell and Naadro Drummers created our stellar line up, each to their own - loved for different reasons and all tied together by this platform we have built over the past 4 years.

I so didn't want to do it 3 weeks ago, but I was on an unstoppable course that both Tasha and I had set ourselves on months before.

We had thousands of people who came to us with their belief and support, our friends smiling at us from the crowds, strangers patting you on the back saying how much fun they were having... it was immense. The moment I will never forget is standing on the side of the stage by the sound desk, with Tinie's manager Dumi and PR guy Junior, watching Tinie start to sing "Written in the Stars" and him standing there in disbelief at the crowds roaring in a unified voice. Screaming the words back at him. Every. Single. Word. It was so loud and energetic and hungry... all of the things we had claimed for the past 4 years, while sitting in multiple offices of companies making our tireless pitch on why this country needs live music experiences and being met with mediocre stares and sluggish responses. Only a few saw our vision and they came on board. So that moment, I realised Tasha and I were right. We knew that what we were trying to achieve was being proved right by thousands of people in front of us.

All the stress, blood, sweat and tears were worth it then.
