Oh the passion

So today is Grand Final Day. We are not footy fans, but we do all love Grand Final Day.
There is something about the game, the way all of Melbourne gets so involved - a real sense of community, spirit and passion envelopes the city.

The game is on, Otis has his little signed Cats footy, hat and scarf out (given to him by his Grandfather, a proud Cats supporter), Annabel is dancing to the pre match entertainment, we will have homemade pizza for dinner, and I will watch while pottering away at a bit of work.

Speaking of passion - are any of you David Gray fans?
This man can do no wrong.
This album was worth the wait.
There is no other music that evokes such emotion in me.

David Gray has been with me since I first heard him in London over 10 years ago ~ through the good, the bad, the every day. White Ladder will always be my favourite album, I don't think anything can top Babylon, but this new album is amazing. It's been made all the more special as it was pre-ordered by Shannon from the record company in the UK as a birthday surprise. It turned up yesterday, with a bonus live disc, and a signed photograph. Yes, a signed photo! As geeky as it may be, this photo is going to be hung on my inspiration wire.

Happy Grand Final Day to you all, and hears to hoping DG makes his way back to Melbourne for a concert tour sometime soon.
