(Photo Taken by Glenn Stephenson Photography in Melbourne) Wow! So ‘down-under’ was a blast!... I got to spend valuable quality time with my family & Friends.. in between gigging’ around the country – Perth, Broome, Margaret River, Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and back to Freo’ again! What a great whirlwind it’s been! With some lovely connections made and new venues tried out! I also had a photo shoot in Melbourne with good friend and brilliant photographer - Glenn Stephenson - www.glennstephensonphotography.com - check him out! This time I was surprised to feel a strong connection with Sydney! I have been there many times for short visits but never felt that before! So I looked up a bit of family history (thanks to Granpa Johnny who loves doing family research) and found that many of my fathers’ side of the family were either born or lived there going back.. feelin’ my roots’ While I was home in WA I co-wrote a song with my great friend and author Anita Revell who amongst many talents is also a marriage celebrant! And as I have played at many weddings in the past – we decided to write a ‘wedding inspired love song’! we love it.. and hope you will too!! I’ll let you know when we release it out into the wild world! (you may have been lucky enough to hear it’s first public live playing at Settlers Tavern Margaret River, or at the last house-concert in Fremantle!). I will be working on recording the new song with my producer in Berlin! I also had a successful little promotion campaign while I was in OZ, for my EP ‘After the Storm’ - download your’s from itunes here https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/after-the-storm-ep-ep/id480239676 and ‘New Life’ you can also get on itunes or cdbaby http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/prita3 and am now being picked up by many radio stations around Australia! Which is great news! You can see who has chosen some tracks here – www.prita.com.au - click on the media page - and feel free to request ‘Prita’ songs or tune in and support local radio stations. It was great to visit my home country and feel my roots again but, I am happy to be back in Berlin now and watch the seasons change – autumn in Europe is lovely.. Top 10 Tips for making yourself at home wherever you are.. 1. Spread your stuff out & put things in places you like them to be 2. Walk/run around the area and get to know your surroundings 3. Make soup – the smell makes it feel like home 4. Have a morning ritual that follows you everywhere you go! 5. Do a visualization – that you are a tree with roots reaching down into the earth and branches that reach up into the heavens… 6. Put on music and dance or sing at the top of your lungs 7. Flowers and plants 8. Have a picture or textile that you love hanging on the wall 9. Brew coffee/tea in the mornings and sit in the sunshine.. 10.
