This is Jack, cute and aloof. He runs a cafe called Popolo in Little Venice, Mykonos. The coffee, which is actually the best I have ever had (on par with Art of Espresso!) , I’m serious, and the loveliness of the owners, world’s cutest couple, Danilo and Spiro, the way you have to climb a spiral staircase that is so steep it becomes a ladder, just to get to the bathroom, and the realisation that, of course, this is a gay friendly space, all combine to make Popolo my favourite cafe in the world. I will miss this coffee! I guess I might have to stay? I 💓 @popolomykonos

You have an espresso at Popolo after you return from Platys Gialos, where you let the water carry you on your back, your ears below the surface, the world muted as sunlight danced in red on the cinema behind your closed eyelids. You thought of sex before your mind turned to the pressing matter of needing some lunch. Later you wander about Little Venice laughing to yourself because you realise you aren’t stuck anymore and it’s a relief like none you’ve felt before. A year ago you didn’t recognise yourself in photographs, you had tried to shrink yourself and you blushed easily. Today you stand up for yourself, especially against worn out neural pathways bullying and berating you. Your know your mother loves you. You have defeated that bout of alcoholism and you are boxer-fit. You have real friends and you invest your time in them. You now have some enemies. You don’t care. You are no longer “nice”. You don’t need anything from others anymore, you really need nothing besides what you already have and you know by now that what’s yours seems to always arrive on time so why bother with yearning? What a goddamn relief; ecstatic, clear, cool. Sunshowers after a summer storm. You recognise your own face again. You know who you are. There’s real power in this.

Just do what I say and don’t look at me like that. You look like you think I’m an idiot.” - My cousin, the photographer, tonight, whom I think is an hilarious fuckwit. It’s mutual. We were both very close to our Grandmother. We were both deliberately irreverent to her at appropriate times, because she loved irreverence.. at appropriate times. My cousin and I are the same as her in this regard. Recently, I explained to him how I loathe it when strangers are “Over-familiar”. It makes my skin crawl.
“You know how it goes... someone you don’t know at all does a big, usually irreverent, public display to suggest you are closer than you are.” My cousin just nodded and said “Sociopaths.”

I listen to my body now. If my skin crawls - I know what it means.

There’s nothing quite like that old mate, the friend you’ve had for a very fucking long time. She’s been with you forever it seems, almost attached like your shadow, a reminder of your form, of gravity; the way you walk through life is illuminated brilliantly through her unfaultering loyalty. It’s flattering. She’s a good one. She suffers no fools and yet there she is, yours, beautiful, resplendent and in good company with the ones you suddenly realise have been with you for a decade, more even. The ones who tell you (gently) you’re being a fuckhead when you’re being a fuckhead, the ones who build you up, the ones who never tear you down - unless it’s to your face and you deserve it. The ones who rip the piss out of your pineapple shaped handbag (honestly, babe, what the fcuk?!). The ones who laugh with you when everyone else is laughing at you. The ones you can go many moons without speaking to and then pick it up right where you both left it, without need for explanation. There’s nothing more blood-like than an old friend and the realisation inspires you to improve and evolve in the ways they forgive you for not being able to so far.... and vice versa 😂😂😂😂😂 @james_l_powell I love you ..even if you do own a pineapple shaped handbag. #shortlegs #longtorso #ooroo @alicia_sorg I love you even if you do live in London 😍😍😍😍😍 you’re incredible humans.

You start taking responsibility for yourself and your effect on others, but you stop criticising yourself unfairly, like when you look in the mirror you smile and instead of saying “I hate my body.” You (lovingly) slap your thigh and say “My god!! Will you look at my magnificent ham hocks! How great is it the way they just walk me around the place like it ain’t no shizzle dizzle!” Even if you don’t believe it, just keep complimenting yourself and eventually you will mean it. It’s not hubristic- it’s kindness.
If you practice this, catching negative self talk and replacing it with humour and kindness, your brain will change, your confidence will blossom and no one will be able to knock you down.
Talk about yourself the way your best friend should. Treat yourself the way you treat someone you love dearly. Take responsibility for your happiness. Don’t give that responsibility to anyone else - They will fail you. You are not their responsibility.
Make it your daily practice and I swear to heavenly f*ck everything just blooms from here.

It’s surreal here when the usually ubiquitous sun hides behind thick grey. Clouds huddle so close they seem to be whispering terrible secrets to each other up there. I’m waiting for my favourite atmosphere to descend with a clap of thunder. I want a bolt to slice through the balmy night. I haven’t felt well today and I know this only now because I’ve bitten all my nails off and am sipping vodka. “It’s a dark moon.” Says Mrs. Rosa. “My arse is.” I say. She looks up, tiny secrets hidden almost from view, but for the well trained eye, they sit in the little upward curl in the corners of her mouth. “Crass Australian!” She chastises. “You love it.” I snark and she admonishes me with silence.

Heading out to celebrate the success of Fruit - the Vinyl presale is going nutso, like me in a few minutes at the bar (..eating the peanuts.. what?), the new single is out, I’ve got new songs written and I feel fit and happy but not too happy, not whackadoo space cadet high, just happy, just right. I make myself still for a second on the white and black stone street between the little apartment I’m lucky to borrow for a while, and my cousin’s house at the top of the hill. I photograph this bewdi. I want to remember it. There’s Bougainvillea everywhere here, but this one looks so like the one my mum grew back home, almost reclining against her house. Hopefully the one I’m growing back in Perth will grow, flower and relax along the walls of my garden over the coming years. It made me realise I had forgotten all about home, which is really rare for me. I guess we’ve been so busy with this presale shiz I haven’t had time to miss my home, but also.. I’m different. I’m not frantic and anxious like I was before releasing Fruit and so home now generally feels like it is wherever I choose to go... especially if it’s covered in Bougainvillea. That’s a pretty good place to be. It’s been good to be still for a moment to feel it. Now where the ‘Quila?

At 7am West Aussie / 9am Aust EST, four options for presale will be announced via abbemay.com each with a base of $49 AUD per vinyl.
The presale option I am most looking forward to involves a G’day and a tequila with me before one of my tour shows.
I’ve tried to tier the presale so it is as accessible as possible while raising funding for my next album.
I thank you cats in advance for your support - every Vinyl presale is an act of arts patronage and I salute you for it. X

My album “Fruit” is a declaration of my identity as a gay woman and it is intended to be an open invitation of friendship to anyone struggling with sexuality or identity.
I wanted Fruit to make you feel safer. I hope it somehow makes you feel I understand what you are going through, in my own way, and that I will stand up for you.
Since releasing it in February, my connection to you has deepened and my life has bloomed on every level. I want to honour the work that has given me freedom and brought us closer together! Vinyl seemed the coolest thing to do as Fruit was produced with the intention that it would one day be split into a Side A and B. On vinyl it sounds warm and complete, all of its weird and wonderful production is on display. I am proud of it.
So! After a lot of back and forth tallying costs with Luxury Cat Records we’ve finally priced Fruit on Vinyl.
I wanted to make it accessible because this vinyl is special to me and I hope it will be to you. There are only 200, 180g Fruit vinyl. Each one is autographed and hand numbered and features art by Sean Morris and of course, the original, slightly controversial (but I wouldn’t have it any other way) Ed Fetahovic cover.
I needed to price it all in such a way that it wasn’t too expensive but that I could also make a small profit in order to pay off the massive cost of manufacture... but also, knowing you lot - maybe we can sell enough vinyl and enough tickets to this Fruit on Vinyl tour so that I can make another record.

My work wouldn’t be possible without your support - I cannot thank you enough for helping me get here.
Presale is available on Friday, Sept 7, from 7am West Aussie time / 9am Aust EST through abbemay.com (link in bio) and the full details of the presale options will be announced in my next post x love you cats 😻

You can almost always spot a fake in the details and the details are everywhere to be seen if we just open our goddamn peepers 👀 and stop willing things to be what we wish they would be..

A very still, almost cold looking beauty, Mrs. Rosa, from the villa next door doesn’t smile. Instead she shows approval with subtlety. Her hand will graze yours when you share a table in the evening, a gesture to say “Look at that one!” In her quiet way, she turns my attention from my book to some bedraggled feline on the steps below. We have a game in naming the stray cats in such a way as to make the other laugh. It’s not much of a challenge for her as I find almost everything funny, and Mrs. Rosa, in her icey beauty, the quiet queen of this game, is much harder to affect. You cannot imagine my difficulty in rousing even a light inhale of air from her when I named the cat sporting a Hitler moustache “Kitler.” Still, Mrs. Rosa sits next to me sometimes in the evenings, eyes scanning for more stray cats for me to name.

I read the world in a symbolic way and I get real lucky because of the roads these signs lead me down. My entire family has this luck but my brother and I in particular seem to have this kind of luck almost constantly. Strange synchronicities so constantly spring up around me, I no longer question it as a matter of sanity. I just read the signs and follow the flow and good luck blooms. Silly shit like ..I give away a denim jacket I love because I know the signs say I have to, someone else wants this one, so I do and then someone gives me the exact style of jacket a few days later. Lots and lots of little blessings, a trip to Mykonos that cost me $280.. a kiss when I feel ugly...profound stuff like my gold Hand Of Fatima pendant falls off my neck and I catch it in my hand, knowing it has done it’s work and must now be given to a loved one as a gift : a protective hand to ward off “The Evil Eye”. But ...I love this pendant and it’s hard to give it away. It’s worth a lot of money. I am driving to give this pendant to my brother and I think “Maybe ...I can keep it..” Then, as if some strange guiding force lifts my chin gently, I see a big red hand, Peter’s hand, painted red, randomly striking me still. It is the art for Midnight Oil’s tour, a tour that rocked my city many moons ago. It’s on the back of a T-shirt a man is wearing across the street. Here’s where my nonsensical reading of signs can’t be explained without me sounding very, er, unscientific - when I saw the hand I knew the timing of it meant I had to stop reconsidering the gift. Gifts must always be given with a whole heart and I know Peter is a God loving man, like my dad is, so I trust it, and being raised by really decent Christians, though I’m more of a Pagan, I know the best part of Christianity is focused on selflessness. I give the pendant to my brother who happily wears it now. A few weeks later a friend in India sent me a new Hand Of Fatima pendant- I’d never mentioned a word about it to her, she had never seen me wear one. She said she just felt I would appreciate it. I’m going to go exploring now - I don’t really mind if you believe me or not 🕺🏻

2018 is officially the strangest year I have ever known.. almost everything is completely different...we’re just past the mid year mark and I think I might be a vegetarian now.. I hope it lasts because I feel pretty bad for the animals, man! I’m not 100% certain but I think I’m not an alcoholic ... 2018 is officially the strangest year I have ever known.. almost everything is completely different...we’re just past the mid year mark and I think I might be a vegetarian now.. I hope it lasts because I feel pretty bad for the animals, man! I’m not 100% certain but I think I’m not an alcoholic anymore... 🤭I still have a good splash here and there but I’m not drowning in it. My favourite part is that I no longer have chronic insomnia and I can suddenly cook.. really quite well.. which will come as a shock to anyone who is familiar with my signature dish “Burnt Soysages”. I sort of started smoking for a bit there too which was weird in all this health .. got over that..(your pouch is safe now, Michael) I also no longer kill plants.. in fact they love me green thumbs up em... my taste in women is completely different.. like ..decades of a “type” now extinguished and replaced with a new-crush-on-an-old-friend vibe - am I making sense? 🤔 if it’s no longer 2017 I’d imagine I am making some semblance of sense as it’s suddenly opposites world. (Say that last sentence super fast three times without getting tongue twisted!) It’s It’s like I’ve woken up with all my neural pathways rewired. I feel like I might be in an episode of Rick and Morty where some of the the characters are replaced by clones for a bit and the clones become self aware and freak out that they might be clones because they are actually... happy 🤪🇬🇷 am I now a non-alcoholic vegetarian who actually sleeps? How is this even possible?! Surely I eat fish?!!! WHAT THE FUCK MAN!
P.s don’t worry - I’m still a lezzie
P.p.s pretty sure it’s just cutting down on alcohol and being less of a cunt to myself that’s made this all happen / give it a crack and see how your life changes x

Absolutely loving Philip K Dick novel “Ubik”... That introduction, though .. surely it’s not just me who finds this to be either an unfortunate choice of words or a deliberately schoolboy-esque attempt at humour.. I think it’s the latter.

Drunk tourists on four wheelers go the wrong way around round-abouts while taxi drivers angrily honk their horns.

Drunk tourists on four wheelers go the wrong way around round-abouts while taxi drivers angrily honk their horns. I see near misses performed every second, almost choreographed, metal dances constantly over potholes and the rotten carcasses of stray cats who have exhausted their nine chances. I thought of my grandmother before I straddled the shit box on two wheels and of how she would never be convinced to get on a scooter. Only idiots ride scooters. I have seen the damage gravel can do to naked shins in even a low speed scooter accident here...I know she wouldn’t want me to get on this bike...I put jeans on in the heat as a sort of compromise with her ghost, if I come off second best to a car at least my skin will have some degree of protection... if I die ? Well, I will be closer to her. Only idiots ride scooters here but only the idiots know what it feels like to be unencumbered by the protection of cars, to have only a helmet visor filtering the golden splendour of sun setting over the Mediterranean, it’s warmth is honey on skin as the rickety death machine between legs rockets up over the crest of a hill. Later I take all my clothes off and lay in the sun. I read some Philip K Dick and fall asleep, skin in tact, grandma’s ghost relieved. I realise I no longer give a shit about things that had me bound back home. Being an idiot today was worth the risk.

Not every action deserves a reaction. This speaks to me on such a deep level I can’t stop laughing. I’ve been practicing meta cognition for the past year, in an effort to deal with a heavy and every changing landscape of grief (alongside some of the happiest times of my life too) and to ensure I do not react to people or situations in harmful ways. I observe the reaction something or someone inspires in me and rather than follow through with it, I try to confront what it says about me. It’s hard and I don’t always escape my reactions but when I do achieve calm self analysis, it is so much better than lashing out in pain. @benjcameron is one of my favourite illustrators. This cartoon made me laugh so hard coffee just came out of my nose. I’m on a Greek island, jet lagged as fuq surrounded by thousands of stray cats and all I can think is how wonderful it is that the world has talented, irreverent, hilarious and insightful people like Ben. Check him out.

The late 80’s and early 90’s was a time when we didn’t really much consider or discuss gender as being identifiable by more than simple cis traits. I remember I hated the term “Tomboy” so much I could feel my insides crunch up whenever it was used as an insult against me in the school yard but mostly it was used as a bullying tactic in the classroom by teachers keen to point out my difference. At the age of 8, I was used as a target by one teacher in particular. He created an “us” (him and any of the class he could influence) verses “it” (me) dichotomy which damaged me so much I didn’t tell my parents about it until I was 14. I didn’t really fix this psychological trauma until I was in my early 30’s. I am now 35. After a year with this teacher I was blessed with being placed under the care of the choir mistress, Kathy Muir. She wore large earrings and brightly coloured blouses. She was strict but had a soft spot for the tomboy who had such low self esteem she couldn’t speak without covering her face. Kathy taught me to sing. We were such great friends we would write from time to time as I moved on to highschool. She moved to Adelaide and would come to my gigs when possible. She would have been in her 80’s, a lover of opera, fingers in ears, but proud of the kid she saved from what would have been a pretty bad and likely short life if she hadn’t intervened, shown me kindness and seen talent in me, not just difference. When she died in 2015 I was unable to make the funeral as I was on tour. Beautifully, magically, I was singing in her original hometown that night. I cried the whole way through the set, it wasn’t misery though. It was a kind of jouissance, a joyful sorrow - she saved my life, I’m sad she’s gone but I’m glad she existed too. I am here today and I am who I am today largely because she was my mentor and friend. This is why I give a shit if you don’t feel safe because you’re different - I know what it feels like. X
