'Suesweek'. Ya know, like Newsweek. News...week... *grins-at-the-likely-groans* Haha yep, in true Sue style I've begun my new weekly updates with a bad pun. No apologies - I like puns. They go well with my terrible jokes. :)
So, I thought it was rather remiss of me to not have posted any blogs on here since my 'No New Year's resolutions' post. But then, the lack of blog posts since then is also kind of poetic... :)
Now that I can definitely say I haven't stuck to any potential New Year's resolutions, I can now pop a weekly blog here. I have actually been posting a weekly mini blog/update for a few weeks, but sending it out on my Facebook page. Here is a slightly different version of the one I sent out on FB a day ago (version with extra news about a special streaming, and with awesome photos):
Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There's a world outside ev'ry darkened door
Where blues won't haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won't hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There's not much time left today
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
- Tom Cochrane (performed by Rascal Flatts)
The road takes me near and far, out into places I'm familiar with, some I'm unfamiliar with, through the daytime and under the night sky. I see people celebrating, relaxing, conversing, listening, drinking, sometimes their hearts breaking. I sing to take away their blues, help them ride them out, sometimes perhaps swim in them for a time when that's what's required. I want to keep travelling these roads, and new roads to new destinations. Maybe I'll never stop.
My travels this weekend take me to:
Friday - solo from 8:30pm to 10:30pm - at the Leopold Hotel in Bicton
Saturday - Susie and the Beatz gig from 8:45pm to 11:55pm at The National Hotel
Sunday - Red Shoes duo (with Dorothy Helfgott-Lydon) from 6:30pm to 9:30pm at JB O'Reillys Leederville
Note: Susie and the Beatz will be live streamed on Meerkat from 11:15pm till midnight (our last set), so if you can't make it and wish to tune in, head to my Meerkat profile https://meerkatapp.co/sulijo, 'follow' me, and keep an eye out for the Meerkat stream schedule (I will be able to set this on Saturday morning, Perth, Australia (GM+8H) time.
Wherever you are, I'd love you to join me smile emotico
