Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

There was no way I couldn’t think outside the box on this one.

To me…Rodriguez was one of the most abandoned singers of my generation. Abandoned by his record company, he was kept from most of the world for decades until two men went in search of the real story about what happened to this talented singer/songwriter.

And so the film SEARCHING FOR SUGARMAN was born.

Finally Rodriguez was brought in from the cold to a world that rejoiced not only in his music, but in his story. One that showed it is never to late for any of us, as long as we don’t abandon what we love and what are our truths.

Here is a taste of what I saw that night.

I was born in the land of Banjo Paterson, gum trees, and weather extremes. I am a freelance writer. I live in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, but still like to claim my Australian heritage. I graduated with a Bachelor of Communications in 2008. I am writing my first novel. I love to write poetry, short stories, and also write for the web. And there is nothing that is on a par with a sunny summer's day spent at Waihi Beach.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
