Suffice to say that the lack of blog posts indicates how insanely jam-packed the itinerary has been this trip. I shall attempt to summarise in point form: I walked up to our apartment (a gorgeous little airbnb which if you ever happen to be in Marseille you should TOTALLY stay in, it’s amazing) and squealed at the view. And by that I mean I squealed EVERY SINGLE MORNING. Marseille is one of the most creatively inspiring and photogenic places I’ve ever been. I adored it and took a billion photos. Let me show you round.   the writing residency I…

Surprise! So…it turns out shooting an adventure doco around multiple corners of a state is actually pretty damn hectic. I am shocked. Blogging may be sporadic at best I’m afraid! However I am updating with photos and various attempts at seeming more amusing than I am over at my Facebook page if you care to play along! In short, I went through a pretty sooky first morning (combo of total exhaustion and missing my babies) but the bizarre fun of the while adventure soon kicked me into gear.

It’s a tough gig this fundraising thing. I am stressed. But trying to breathe.

We’re on track. I hope. This Friday I’m doing a pizza fundraiser at my son’s indoor soccer club. I’m also planning to do as many guest comedy spots as I can between now and the end of the month…

You know how some weekends it feels like you’ve just gotten NOTHING accomplished at all, whereas others you jam-pack with so much crazy that you wind up in need of another weekend immediately just to recover? Yeah. Me too. This weekend was NOT either one of those, in fact it feels like for once, we actually got the balance right. Can it be? As time goes on I’m giving up on the idea of balance being a sustainable ideal, but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy it when it actually finds us! The past two days were a perfect combination…
