It seems every time I’m home the trees have changed colour again and I want to document it on my camera! I love this time of year when nature is in technicolour and the changing colour of the leaves are such a powerful and perennial metaphor for the passing of time.

As I was editing this post I was reminded of this set of photos featuring the same shirt and trainers. That post was from when I was last on tour in the South West with Rhum & Clay, and coincidentally I’m on tour again with them at the moment. It’s so brilliant to be able to see different parts of the country whilst in such good company! I wrote the score for the show we are performing and it is so stimulating to revisit a project I care about so much, as so often in art that’s not the case. Completing a painting, finishing a novel or recording an album all have a moment of finality where the product is finished and the time for alterations is over. Theatre is the opposite: constantly evolving and adapting to new stages and audiences, nuances and cadences never quite the same from night to night.

    That’s your garden Laila? It’s SO beautiful! The last photo with the light shining through the trees is gorgeous. I love that you’re wearing trainers here, you look really cool! The colour you’re wearing has to be one of my favourite colours, and it’s so lovely and autumny! And, I love your collar, it looks a little Wednesday Addams (which is a big compliment haha, she is the best.)

      Hahaha. I literally just got reviewed as a “sultry Wednesday Addams” by somebody who came to see the show! I think it’s because I look so moody when I’m playing music, it’s just my concentration face. Thanks! X

    Wow, you are performing a show, this is great! I loved your look, this coat is amazing! The pictures are really beautiful and so are you! Yes, the leaves are so sweet! I like outfits with skirts and trainers! I apologize that I didn’t come here earlier, I was out of (even my) blogs for some weeks, now
