I’m currently trying a new thing where I read a non-business book every single week. Honestly, it’s taking me about 2 weeks to get through one but I admire my optimism in telling you it’s one every week.

I recently repicked up Big Magic – Elizabeth Gilbert which has always been a favourite.

Creativity has always been important to me and I remembered finding absolute joy when I first read this book. If you follow me on social media, you know I’ve taken up painting and trying to be more creative in my day to day.

Last week Melbourne claimed a title no one actually wanted us ever wanted. We have now become the city with the worlds longest lockdown. That’s right – take that Worlds Most Livable City, we got a new title that no one wanted and everyone hates.

Melbourne folk are basically superhero’s at this point with 230 days under our belt.

Things I learned during in the worlds longest lockdown

For any of us that have ‘that voice’, it can make very little sense to people around us. It’s the reason we start businesses, move countries, learn Italian, take up a new hobby – this voice is the reason we do a lot of things that just simply don’t make sense to people. My voice was well and truly screaming at me in 2020 as I came home and was looking at relocating abroad.

But my voice, just like everyone else’s, suddenly became muffled and drowned out because of the world we were in. Australia watched as bushfires enveloped our home followed shortly by the global pandemic that took the lives of millions – my voice had to take a backseat.

Into the Unknown

And then it hit me.
Over the last two years so many wonderful magic things had happened that I’d never thought about. In this exact moment, I was grieving my old life in very real time.

“We have been told to be quiet, not to rock the status quo. We aren’t told to advocate for ourselves and sell ourselves. I would argue women need to own their power and skills and remind people just who YOU are.” — Jemimah Ashleigh

A man is travelling on a dirt road high up in the mountains and out of nowhere a man riding a horse so fast that our traveller has to jump out of the way. He scrambles onto his feet, dusts himself off and screams after the guy on the horse
‘Hey, where the fuck are you going?’
‘I donnn’t knnnooowww…. Ask the horse!’

Like every single other person reading this, 2021 has felt like a bit of a false start.

Not much has changed from 2020. We still remain in a pandemic. We ended up back in lockdown. Melbourne somehow skipped summer… It feels like 2020 but maybe with a fringe cut in?

One of the things I make every year, is a photobook of the year that has been.

Firstly, let’s all be clear – I’m not a science /animal person so what you are about to read won’t help you pass a Lobster Anatomy class, but I you won’t probably fail. Also, I’d like to thank Google.

The Lobster (or Crayfish if you will) is one of the most incredible little animals on the planet.

A lobster has two main parts – an exoskeleton thick shell called the Carapace and under that, a whole lot of squishy blobby meat.
