Sundays for soap and suds

By | January 14th, 2018|daily life, friends, light art, music|

I love Sundays. It is so nice to wash clothes, wash dishes and clean the house. All the more therapeutic when I am feeling incredibly crappy from a reduction in medication. All I want to do today is to soothe my soul. I quite enjoyed Nathaniel singing Marvin Gaye at the Chapel off Chapel Summer [...]

Back in Surry Hills – Sydney 2018

By | January 6th, 2018|architecture, bars and restaurants, bullshit, design, holidays, journal|

I have to keep moving today or the premenstrual sadness will consume me. I am back in Surry Hills today. It is bringing up a lot of memories from when I was off my head. It has changed quite a bit, I have to say. It is gentrified. You need a hostess to seat you [...]

She writes to him and purges her soul, the difference being, that he responds to her words, if not in letters, then in [...]

last night on the coast thoughts

By | December 26th, 2017|bars and restaurants, daily life, holidays, interesting people, journal, weather|

Last night on the coast. I may not be back until next year, if then. To be honest, some of the glamour of this place sits inside my soul with the impressions of Grey and his Seagulls, and his family or other local celebrities of the community. It is actually a very vibrant place, and [...]
