tempest you us

my brain hurt like a wherehouse

i had breakfast with my eldest daughter miranda today

(granola with soy milk and berry compote)

we sat looking out at the sea

its a given that all fathers love their daughters

but this one is the most airy and evanescent of them all

at once she is a stunning beauty and an overgrown child full of enthusiasm

i have been lucky with my daughters

and i thank my god for them

yes they are my wealth

my positive contribution to this world

i have the new lou lou record in my possession

i’m giving it a good flogging in my headphones and while i paint

wow some aching heartbreaking songs right there

i am impressed

their lyrics are mostly impeccable

clever mercurial and with ambiguous little twists

music flows through my family

everyone plays and writes

my grandmother and great uncle joe played the piano

my dad and even aunty lou lou herself could play

music in our blood

the girls carry it on

with a double talent whammy of karin their mother  and her brothers

all players singers actors writers

with this impressive genetic musical pool to pull from

it should be easy and they make it look easy

its like they sprang into this world fully formed as SLL

for their first record there is some impressive stuff

haunting longing and sometimes exuberant songs

gorgeous songs with unusual melodies

torch songs and the like

its called lucid dreaming and its out on 23 feb i believe

bravo twillies this is an auspicious start

very very nice

    I am looking forward to hearing the new album! I love what I have heard so far – as you said Steven, how can they NOT be naturals at this? Born and bred for the stage! I wish them a world of success and proud to know their dad.

    Congrats Steve, my children and music are the two things that I could not live without. Well I guess air, water and food. So 5 things I could not live without. Hope they are staying there awhile with you, enjoy your time with them in Oz. Maybe a SLL/KK tour is in the cards?

    to my reality now. Moving pixels on a computer monitor. Kepping the
    machine happy. Longing for the lost holiday.

    Very beautiful sentiments,Steve.Recognizing the depths of love for our children,if we can’t leave them the whole blinding Light,we leave at least a reflection of it,and looking in their eyes to see ourselves and affirm our goodness as parents.See ya soon.
