How very distressing is the recent story of beautiful singer Lisa Hunt. She followed protocol, paid the police and Council for the DA for her proposed musical gig and now SHE is to blame because folks danced – and the police ignored them!
She has to pay a $5,000 fine! It’s hard to understand. Lisa is an incredible and highly respected artist. Artists have a deep understanding of civil society dictates. Like everybody else they have human rights. They are generous and struggle to survive. We are all wounded by this situation.
Music is essential to the soul and this Lisa understands. Are we no longer permitted to imagine, dream, and fill the soul with joy? Or is this the Baptisᵐ of Beige in Byron Bay? It is hard to overlook targeting in this sad, sad saga. Let us all hope that this issue is resolved with humanity and dignity.
Blessings Lisa… sing, sing, sing darling. You are much loved.
