Eddie love ...

There are fewer things in life more inspirational than the divine Eddie Vedder ....  Recently I was fortunate enough to see him live in concert at the superb State Theatre in Sydney.  There would seriously be very few people on this earth who could entertain you - mesmerise you - for two solid hours, performing solo on stage ... and yet Eddie did.  Not that I doubted he could, for a moment. 

I have seen Pearl Jam live three times, and yet this was a memorable performance ... a combination of Pearl Jam and Into the Wild tracks led to a superb evening of music - where Eddie missed neither a chord nor a lyric.  It was an absolutely amazing gig, and I am still reeling from the buzz of the event - marred only by a few 'tools' in the audience.   Eddie Vedder ... you are a legend <3

The Distant Hours

   Kate Morton - I love you!  And I love this book!!!  Much awaited, this book is sooo much 'my thing' - historical fiction, past and present stories, gothic castles and a slowly unravelling mystery.  I am engrossed, so keen to continue to turn the pages and yet I do not want it to end!!  It took me a short while to engage with the narrator, Edie Burchill, and yet I now so accept her, and believe her, and 'like' her.  While I am frustrated by her relationship with her mother, I am sure that this difficult habitude will reach a point of amiability, and feel that an ultimate openness between Edie and her mother will be a necessary element in the conclusion of this story.  I am so loving reading this fantastic story :)
