ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #40

At the time of writing this, I’m watching a Norwegian - English movie called ‘Mortal’ about an American guy stuck in Norway and he’s still coming to terms with the supernatural powers that he has. 

I suppose I can…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #37-39

DAY 1 

Bristol .....such a lovely city that shines even more with beautiful cosmopolitan people and most of all, buskers are very welcome there but my experience of that dates back to 3 years ago and as I have 45…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #36

 

Our last rehearsal at The Last Chance Saloon ....oops, I mean Southbourne Bandstand was kinda epic! 

Summer is no longer here....BOTH my portable speakers just aren’t loud enough and my ‘multi purpose’ busking amp can’t handle the bass and kick…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #35 

“Oh Lemony Snicket!!!” I discreetly screamed at myself in a rather more colloquial frustrated teenage girl going through her menstruation kind of manner instead of ‘lady like’ as I was sitting in front of my…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #34

It’s 7:55 and my charismatic New Yorkian friend Leo/Leopold Saul Loewer is due to get the 9:01 train from nearby Branksome and then meet me at my residence as soon as he can...

I ‘broke the ice’ with her by suggesting…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #31

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #30

The adrenaline kicked in instantly first thing this morning and despite the strong winds howling outside the confines of Ethereal HQ, I was determined to still go to London today and go out of my comfort zone as a busker! 

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #29

Ever since I got back from London yesterday I was in 2 minds about whether I would be going up there again or not. 

I have thought long and hard now why I was feeling hesitant and it all boils…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #28

It may have been noisy but organised within the realms of my own mind but the gentle sound of the rain pittering and pattering upon the rooftop surface of my winter jacket hood as I made my way to the…

ASCENSION OF THE ETHEREAL #27

At the time of writing this, it’s a sunny and beautiful early afternoon on the vague as usual precinct of Boscombe....a place that always gets looked down upon because that is where in my opinion, the real people are.
