Hi all, I'm having a lovely time in Australia right now, and alas the lack of a card reader in the PC at home prevents me from sharing the pictures I've taken. So, I guess we'll meet again in the new year, dear friends. Have a warm and fuzzy Christmas!

I'll leave you all with this song and its verses which I've been contemplating for awhile, and of course, to celebrate that Kings of Convenience will perform in Singapore come March. That's one more gig on top of Andrew Bird, Cat Power and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I say cheers to 2010 already!

We'll be rich in memories of all the places
We've captured without camera
We've seen the pyramids
We've seen the Louvre
We've seen Orion upside down
Total eclipses and the moonlight shadows
We've seen dolphins jumping waves
We've ski'ed the mountains and we swam in the rivers
And let the sunlight dry our skin

But freedom, freedom
never greater than its owner
Freedom is the mastery of the known
Freedom, freedom
never greater than its owner
No view is wider than the eye

Show a view to someone who chose
to live his whole life in a cave
He'll raise his arms to protect his eyes from learning
And the blindness to which he belongs
This time it's me, it's me
Cascades of chances I'll just let them be
The unfamiliar is right below our eyes
Don't look for what we know
The unfamiliar is right below our eyes

Freedom, freedom never
greater than its owner
Freedom is the mastery of the known
Freedom, freedom
never greater than its owner
No view is wider than the eye

I lean my head slowly to the side, reflect on the camellia on the moss of the temple, reflect on a cup of tea, while outside the wind is rustling the foliage, the forward rush of life is crystallised in a brilliant jewel of a moment that knows neither plans nor future, human destiny is rescued from the pale succession of days, glows with light at last and, surpassing time, warms my tranquil heart.
