What Is It?

What is Mountains Beyond Mountains? It’s a song by Arcade Fire about the artistic quest—leaving behind the monotony of suburbia to discover what the world has to offer, find purpose and meaning and others to share your “song” with.

For me, this blog is a place to share my work and hopefully inspire other people to choose the path less taken. There will always be mountains to climb and challenges to overcome, but live life daringly rather than play it safe. And I don’t necessarily need to live in a city to find that, but I do need the darkness (especially the night sky here in Australia – have you seen all the stars)!

They heard me singing and they told me to stop
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

‘Cause on the surface the city lights shine
They’re calling at me, come and find your kind
Sometimes I wonder if the World’s so small
That we can never get away from the sprawl
Living in the sprawl
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
And there’s no end in sight
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
