This has been sitting in my drafts all year. I couldn’t bring myself to hit publish until today.
We returned to Sydney in November, and the few months since I couldn’t face and relive the emotions I went through in Hong Kong. The five or so months have been like ringing ears after an intense gig. I’m still waiting for it to settle down.
It was extraordinarily painful and bittersweet. Polarising, with some of my biggest highs and lowest of lows ever confronted. Limits were challenged and baselines were reset.
Putting together this year’s belated mixtape is probably the closest I’ll get to both express and recollect the rainbow of emotions. Even though at times it makes me wince, I’ve learnt a tremendous amount about myself.
