Back on Track

Moving Pictures, Sweethearts gig

” I remember when we were young…
We were 16 but not for long.
The Delphi Coffee Lounge was all innocent fun,
Drinking cappucinos but dreaming of rum”

Nothing to Do (A Smith/G. Frost)

I’ve got back to reliving the music from Kat’s teenage years. The band (and I do need to find a suitable name for ‘the band’ – suggestions most welcome) is doing a reunion tour up and down the East Coast of Australia and Maddie and Kat are going to be there…at every gig!

So, this is me and Alex when I was 15 or 16? Big free outdoor concert at Birkenhead Point. Circa 1984.

Flashforward to August 2005…

And here is where I get my inspiration for part of my Nano novel. For despite the fact, that both of us are showing the extra 21 years. (Alex has aged a bit more gracefully than me, I reckon), the gig still managed to transport me back to the eighties, back to being a teenager. And this is the feeling I want to convey in the novel.
