dust of ages

Earlier I was watching teevs,something I don't really do much just because usually I'd rather be making stuff,but mindlessly sitting in front of the tv is needed sometimes I think.

Anyways,I was flicking from station to station & stopped on a portion of a show where this elderly gent sat on his back verandah & talked about his life,his wife who had passed away & the fact that he was 86 years old.

It wasn't so much his stories,but his general air of sadness that really bothered me. That heavy feeling of melancholy washes over me when I see or meet elderly people who are sad. To be that age,to have lived that long & at the end of it all be sad is...heartbreaking. I sat on the couch crying & wanting to give the old man a hug.

Life is weird like that I guess & old age is something that terrifies me. Not the fact of getting old,but being old,alone & sad. I want to be old & happy. I don't want to be an old woman tinged with sadness & regret. I want to be one of those fierce old crazy women who laughs til the very end,is surrounded by family + friends & looks back on life with a gleam in her eye.

Perpetual One

Lovely lady,Georgina from PERPETUAL ONE approached me with a task to help turn her new logo ideas into reality.

She wanted something simple.fresh.authentic & that reflected the spirit of her quality collected [antique] wares + assembled pieces.

The final result is this flag design which we're both really happy with.This is probably the first logo I've completed entirely on my Mac,no hand-drawing or even a smidge of pen which was a really nice change + I also managed to teach myself some new photoshop skills along the way.

that dude.

My fella,Brendan is amazing.
Every single day I learn something new + exciting about him & from him.
Every day I adore him just a little bit more.
His love is infinite & unconditional.
I know I'm crazily gushing over this guy,but he's just so fucking rad to the core.
He is absolute delicious bliss.

I love you,lover dude.

distant tomorrow's

Sorry for the lack of posts or lack of interesting posts.

The past couple of weeks have been odd,not so odd that I don't know what it is,but just odd in an frustrating sense. Everything in my life has been great lately,nothing to complain about & nothing to feel any strong emotions toward.

All I've been wanting to do is stay in bed & sleep the days away.Of course I know what this means in my world [and anybody else who has some mental issues] & it's horribly frustrating,but at the same time I haven't been sleeping well at night + the weather has been gloomy.

So,I'm just allowing myself to lock myself in the house,wander around in shitty old clothes,isolate myself from the rest of the world,drink lots of tea & just feel what I'm feelin',even if it consists of emptiness + hopelessness. They're only feelings & they will float on by soon enough.

I am still participating in life partially,but for now I'm on my little island of solitude until further notice.

Seeya on the flipside! xx

This is amazing.
I really want this doormat!

jerkface jellyfish

On Saturday we lay in the sunshine on the bleached timber of the jetty & watched hundreds of jellyfish float on by.

fabulous Friday

This past week has been a strange one,I've been a little lost & not in a fun way. A gigantic man hug from my lovely fella [we don't see each other from Monday/Tuesday til Thursday/Friday] was muchly needed & appreciated after this otherwise uneasy week.A simple hug from a loved one does wonders for the soul,it's kind of amazing how healing it can be.

Another thing that makes me feel better are images,visual stimulation to keep me going & seeing that there is so much yumminess out there in the world.
The following are a tiny collection of images I've found on the internets that have made me smile this past week.

Off topic,we also went to the opening night of BLOODLAND last night at the QPAC Playhouse.My super talented sister-niece produced it,but I'll talk more about BLOODLAND in another entry!!! It was amazing though & I highly recommend you go see it while it's still playing.

Karl Roy | R.I.P


Thankyou for spending balmy afternoons in the shack by the sea sharing watermelon & having conversations about phallic wood carvings & tattoos.

For consistently talking to me in the dodgiest Australian accent I've ever heard for one week straight when I told you I was missing Australia,you made me smile.

For sharing waves,nature,music,laughs & silliness.

For the random conversations at odd hours of the night,talking about how charismatic cats are,great hairstyles & creative ideas. 

For always genuinely asking how I am & supporting my creativity,no matter how far away.

For giving Filipinos a voice.

For spreading your infectious energy & sharing your beautiful.ugly.raw rock'n'roll with the world that will forever resonate in our hearts + minds + souls.

Rest in Peace dear man.

love + light

xx millie

update: Peggy

I woke this morning to Peggy playfully slapping Oddball across the face with her paw & Oddball wagged his tail.
She then spent 20 minutes stalking a ladybug.
All is well in the world once again.

My little Pirate Peggy went to the Sunshine Beach Vet today to get desexed.
She's at home now with a few stitches & a hardcore tattoo in her ear,coz she's badass.
But she's a bit sad & in pain,poor little possum.I don't like seeing her sad because she's normally so crazy + silly.

Get well soon little lady!
