By | September 18th, 2018|daily life, friends, parks and gardens, Turtle, weather|

I feel really quite sad right now. I want to tell 'Turtle' this, but who is Turtle really? It was so sad to see, those endangered Turtles today. . . wait. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bn2XK-MnJG1/?taken-by=guardianaustralia I don't like that very much. How are you Turtle? I miss you xx

Lulu’s for wine, art and conversation

By | August 10th, 2018|art, bars and restaurants, daily life, friends|

Lulu Cafe and Gallery is a lovely place to meet with friends on a lovely winter evening. Three glasses of Tempranillo and a delicious meal marinated chicken Maryland later and it is with a certain spring in my step that I meet the 9:07 train to Keon Park. Words are what have been missing in [...]

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 [...]

Cool Out Sun – Melbourne International Jazz Festival

By | June 10th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends, music|

Last night was the perfect evening in many ways. Just great company, great food, and amazing music. I was so lucky to see Cool Out Sun at the Reverence Hotel last night. I was following my friends into the band room, I could see them just in front of me, and the door bitch said [...]

A brisk winter’s night adventure in Footscray

By | June 9th, 2018|bars and restaurants, daily life, friends, journal|

My evening out in Footscray, exploring delicacies and finding new music makes me realise how grateful I am to live in this city. Something made me look back today, at a messier, more chaotic chapter in my life. It kicked me in the guts a bit, but then I realised, talking to a friend: what [...]

Emma Donovan and the Putbacks – Stonnington Jazz Festival

By | May 19th, 2018|friends, music, radio|

I think the thing that moved me most about last night's gig in Windsor as part of the Stonnington Jazz Festival was the fact that Emma, the lead singer of Emma Donovan and the Putbacks is such a rare, but fantastic success story. She sang these words during one of her songs: 'Aboriginal woman, here [...]

Maya – Ella’s Music Club

By | May 13th, 2018|friends, music|

There is something about live music that can dissolve any kind of knot of the soul. It soaks into my core and melts like chocolate over my heart. I admit, there was some moments that I wished you were there. My favourite part though, was when each member of Maya’s band did their solo. Talented [...]

Sunday session – drinks and people watching

By | May 6th, 2018|bars and restaurants, friends|

Smith Street is a lovely place to people watch on a Sunday afternoon and watch the world go by. Miss Party Feet hosted drinks there this evening, and I floated back down the street, taking in the sunset, people's interesting clothing, their pets, the conversations and dynamics. It fills my soul with the substance that [...]
