Hello Grahamstown National Arts Festival, I am here!

Posted · Add Comment

I made it…I am here at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival!

It’s been a wild ride getting here, with some incredible gigs on the way up. One at an AMAZING new venue in Plett called Heart Studio, plus an always magical stop at Wild Spirit Lodge & Backpackers.

There have also been some very hash realities I’ve had to face about my current financial situation recently. Many of you have read about them in my newsletter or on facebook already. Click here if you don’t know what I’m talking about. Suffice to say money is tight and I’m looking at how to make it right.

Anyway, I made it, I’m at the Grahamstown National Arts Festival and I am STOKED to be here! Been offered a room in a house, so I’m warm and comfy (vs my camping and freezing last year, hehe).

Just wanted to let y’all know I’m well and smiling. Thanks for being in on the fun and the tough times with me, your support makes more difference than I think I can express.

Speak again soon, take care of yourselves out there and remember, there are always other embers in the fire grateful for your presence.

Two embers in the fire faced one another, said to the other ‘What are you doing here?’

With love
Nate

PS: it's totally not true about the fairies, they're resilient little f*%#ers and can definitely handle your rejection (and so can I)
