The warmth of red wine and friendship

By | July 29th, 2018|bars and restaurants, design, friends, light art|

It was a bit of a new experience to go shopping with a friend. It is so interesting how conversation flows in completely different ways with the stimulation of browsing lovely things. It was quite a novel experience. To add to this, is that amazing warmth that grows between two people who are drinking red [...]

A lush and beautiful sanctuary for a soul to play

By | May 25th, 2018|architecture, design, parks and gardens|

My house becomes more and more lovely every week, and I think tomorrow that I will go to a local greenery and get some plants with tendrils to drape over my wooden bookcases. The tendrils are important. I want them to drape. It is a nice plant nursery because they specialise in indoor plants and [...]

Melbourne Knowledge Week is the best! Last night we went to a talk at the MKW Hub. It is an amazing space, filled with light art, beautiful ferns and sculptures. The talk was a panel of authors and academics discussing how we can avoid a Dystopian future. I loved the first speaker, Andrew Milner the [...]

Saturday afternoon at the Museum

It is really nice to have a Saturday night at home for a change, and just cook and drink wine and listen to nice music. I am making a mini herbed roast lamb, and it is fun. I went to the Melbourne Museum this afternoon. It is definitely worth doing. They have some amazing exhibits. [...]

The Manganiyar Seduction – State Theatre

By | March 7th, 2018|architecture, design, music|

One particular word comes to mind when I think of tonight's performance of the Manganiyar Seduction at the State Theatre and that is 'stunning'. I think it is true what people say about it - that it is some kind of spiritual experience. It was like the most satisfying and entertaining of advent calendars. A [...]

Enter the dragon – White Night Melbourne

By | February 18th, 2018|art, design, light art, technology|

I am at the Melbourne Museum and I got my cup of tea. It is very refreshing. White Night tuckers me out every time! It is something about the lights, the crowds, the walking. I am supposed to be meeting some friends, but I think I am done. And what a finale! I am sitting [...]

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 [...]

Beautiful evening and lots of steps

Oh Sydney, how I love you. You are so vibrant and lush and amazing. Breeze, boats and beaches. I know that I am in Sydney because I have walked 19,934 steps today. Hehe. I always walk more in the city, but I am pretty sure that is a record in one day! There are so [...]

So lucky to live here – beautiful evening

By | November 29th, 2017|architecture, cinema, design, parks and gardens, weather|

So incredibly grateful right now. I only had to wait 20 minutes for a bus and it is 11:30 pm on a Wednesday night. So amazing. This little strip is one of my favourite in Melbourne. It is Lygon St in Carlton. So leafy and vibrant and lush.
