Sometimes I wonder why I can’t seem to sit still and to date haven’t really come up with an answer. Not sure I really need an answer, but what I do need is music, people and adventure… and maybe the odd glass of wine here and there.
My ‘obsessions’ in life are connecting with people, photography (I generally see the world through the lens of a camera), music (blues festivals are high on the addiction list), travel, fundraising and volunteering for charities that are close to my heart and generally contributing to the community in any way I can.
I am also quite partial to a good feed and can often be seen devouring (or taking photographs of) delectable delights in various well known cafes around Newcastle.
I’ve grown up with the lyrics of Bruce Springsteen ringing in my ears. I’ll be honest.. he’s my biggest obsession. His acoustic storytelling and eloquent songwriting delivered in various phases and genres of music over the years has definitely carried me through each little era of my own life. I could go on about him for hours, but I won’t. All I’ll say is, he’s my musical rock and he’s what I turn to when the chips are down or up and everything else in between.
Come along for the ride, but as I mentioned…it ain’t free…
