A cover of French song "La Mer" by Charles Trenet’s,

I can just see it now, big stage in a 1950’s club, say the Copacabana in Manhattan or The Flamingo in Vegas.  A low ceiling and lighting to match, smoke rising to rest up high from cigarettes sold by beautiful women with full trays, back when smoking didn’t give you cancer, cigarettes were prescribed by doctors along with LSD. 

A man in a tuxedo leans across to light his lovers cigarette, the refillable lighter sparks to life and calms as the flame settles in, meeting the tip held in a holder, the cherry glows red, she exhales the plum and throws her head back laughing, the horn section explodes – wow, what a time.

About the Curator: Erin Murray

Erin, a Mother of 1 little man and wife to 1 big man has learnt much about herself in the past few years.   After moving from the city to the bush (near the Ocean), there weren’t as many distractions as she had become accustomed to, in a smaller community she lost her anonymity and slowly began to become aware of herself, her feelings, the life she had created for herself and her relationships with others.  Seeking change from the feelings and behaviors which had become her normal, she sought out methods to do just that.  Slowly at first, then a bit more and a bit more she is becoming aware of what she actually wants for herself and has begun removing the things that aren’t that, inside and out.  Learning about faith (not religionJ), fun and how to be gentle with herself and others along the way.
