WOMN Mag >>> How One Couple Chose Mobility

I was asked by the lovely girls over at WOMN Magazine to write a few words about my decision to move myself and For Love of the Moon overseas, to a home on an olive & almond grove in southern Italy, where my days are much slower and I drink too much wine, all while trying to navigate the sleepy WiFi situation of countryside Italy. If you have a minute you can check out the full article here

I’m writing this bit right now from my front porch of my new (very old) home in Ostuni, nicknamed La Città Bianca, the most beautiful white-washed town in the southern region of Italy, Puglia. Ostuni hangs tightly onto a hill, dripping off the edges overlooking the crystal blue Adriatic Sea... (cont'd)

A TUESDAY AFTERNOON PLAYLIST

Mixed and mashed up makes no sense but here's what I've been listening to lately. Black Sabbath, The Byrds, Lemonheads and a surprising one from Dion... among many others. Already feeling like I'm going to miss the physical presence of my records when I head to Italy in a few weeks. Can't quite fit them in my suitcase. Blah. 

Hope it's a Tuesday with some ice cubes and ice cream. xx!

Soft Seduction Playlist

Made an entire playlist to follow this David Byrne song I've come to really love off of his album, Feelings, first on the mix. His haunting voice. Some T.Rex and Brian Jonestown Massacre and Black Sabbath wedged in there. Come follow along so you can find me & I can find you we can swap the good stuff. 

This groovy lightweight plush velvet leopard print jacket is up for sale... from the 60s and I named it Jeepster. Shop it here

I Got Religion | Friday's Playlist

In soul and funk and melodies and music I can't myself play. Can't even begin to fathom how it comes to be. As puzzling as the universe. Inseparable from my happiest and my saddest. The secret of love. Beyond language barriers and country borders. Sing about peace, sing about joy, sing sing sing. Wonderful world, beautiful people.

Shadows | Friday's Playlist

Old and new together on this sleepy slow playlist as we're stuck in a perpetual day of rain and cloudy skies. What I thought was old turns out to be new after months of listening to a voice I assumed was creating decades ago. Hope it's a beautiful weekend for you.

Tulum, Mexico

Spent the last six days in a magical jungle with my two best mates. And Tulum has struck my fancy in ways only tiny intimate Sardinian fishing villages have before. 

8am coffee overlooking the turquoise lazy waters, staying in our swimsuits until sunset, unbrushed salty hair for days, crisp white wine on couches in the whipping sea breeze and Mezcal drinks while buried in jungle side restaurants. Fresh seafood and fruit and salsa dancing under the stars. Midnight swims in the warm bath water and permanently bare sandy feet. If you're ever in need of a true vacation where you can get through several books while drinking coconuts on the beach, Tulum takes the cake. 

Grateful to have spent these days with my most wonderful people and for my first time in Mexico getting to know the kindness and hospitality of the Mexican people, drinking and eating and laughing and laughing and eating and drinking.

On a Night Like This | Friday's Playlist

The Kinks & Blind Faith & T.Rex & the Bee Gees & Terry Reid (if you don't know the name google him... an almost Led Zeppelin front man, his resume is wild) all together on a playlist I finished around sunrise this morning. A little sleepily but starting the weekend today. Hope it's a really wonderful one for you.
