Leaving Australia now. Headed back to LA


Tin  Woodman, Scarecrow And Lion








Dan Peek died at 60 last week,  co-founder of  folk rock band America  who recorded 'Horse with No Name' and "Tin Man"  I remember that line from the former

The ocean is a desert with it's life underground And a perfect disguise above. In the desert you can remember your name 'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain

and the later,

But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
That he didn't, didn't already have
 

Ah! Australia,I remember Mel Gibson's 1981 movie Gallipoli,about two rural western Australians who slowly lose their innocense aboutthe purpose of war.In fact I thought all guys from Oz were like him.

The placebo effect was in full force here. Never really needed  heart, already doing things with heart or as the French say coeurage.It is,afterall, the power to let go of the familiar. And what  was the takeaway: Our heart is free. Have the courage to follow it.
