Love Is All We Need

Hello dear visitor,

thank you for your time I appreciate it :). I just wanted to write a little update this Sunday. Oona Dahl and I traveled to Stonehenge and Avebury In February 2020 with my D90 Nikon SLR camera, some holographic material, a few bags of groceries, various colored light bulbs and an Airbnb booking. It was a miracle in some ways that we were able to combine our time and be in the same place together and we had a lot of fun driving and listening to some nice mixes on the way. Oona and I were determined to do this video completely by ourselves and now it’s finished.

We filmed ourselves larking about, without a real story line initially but there was quite an intense feeling that these incredible places like Avebury in Wiltshire, and Stonehenge have a mystery to them that cannot be denied.

I was quite shocked when we arrived at Stonehenge as it has now been really commercialized, and we now have to pay quite a significant amount of money to get close to them. I was last there with Justin Elswick and Caroline Lavelle 10 years ago, and we had a cup of tea in Carolines camper van and then just crossed the road straight to the stones, now it’s a bit of a shlep to get there but we did it.

Oona and I managed to get some nice shots and recently the story came together and we now have the video. I hope you enjoy it.

As an aside I’ve been waking up at Dawn quite frequently of late and making an effort to go outside and listen to the birds singing and to meditate with my palms facing up. There is so much confusion and post bombing going on online with this lockdown going on, so if you can try and find time to switch off from it all and get outside into nature and to meditate early, and then receive those early morning full spectrum sun rays on your face so that you can absorb the vibrations that are positive ones, it may help to stay calm and to cope with this chaos that surrounds us right now.

  1. Hi there Kirsty, I recently found myself listening to your track Orange again.
    I love this track and for some reason it connects me to my dead father.
    Just wondered what the song is about, and how you came to write it.

    Best wishes

    1. Hello Kirsten,

      firstly i’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your Father, I send my condolences to you. Orange was written on the day I found out that my friend had passed away from a an accidental recreational overdose age 28 her name was Sally Harding. Sally was a bubbly creative spirit and a photographer. Sally was always very generous as a person and loved to connect people together and share her friendships, and it’s because of Sally that I ended up working with Orbital and meeting them. The reason I called the song Orange, is because there was one time when she asked me to help her with some makeup to do a photoshoot for a flick book called Trance Europe Express. It was a booklet with a CD in it and very popular in the 90’s. Sally was invited to do one of the flick photos bouncing up and down on a space hopper painted orange. I painted her face and arms and legs, but unfortunately we used the wrong paint, I think it was acrylic or something and it took her ages to wash it off, infact she couldn’t get it off! and we laughed so much that day it was hilarious. What I loved about Sally is that despite looking like she had been ‘tango’d’ she still decided to go and get a beer from the pub with an orange face after the photo shoot. Another thing we used to always shout at each other when we saw each other was ‘JOY’ really loudly it was our favourite word (Ren and Stimpy). Sally’s passing was extremely sobering for all of her close friends, she was very popular and we loved her so much. At her funeral at the end they played ‘Lord of the dance’ and it’s why I added a little outro with my recorder.
