I saw Joelistics and James Mangonhig from TZU perform tonight. What a treat. We got tickets to ‘In Between Two’ showing as part of the Melbourne Festival. It was a rich tapestry of storytelling, music, comedy and visual delights. Such an amazing and uplifting history.

I am so happy. It was nice to get out and hear Tim Flannery talk about some of his optimism where climate change is concerned. He is an Australian scientist and he was talking about the fact that the battle has largely been won where use of fossil fuels is concerned in energy and transport. [...]

The Way Out – Red Stitch Theatre – Josephine Collins

By | August 22nd, 2017|interesting people, theatre|

Although, it was haunting, how the dystopian future played out in Australia, in this play 'The Way Out'. It took them two years to develop this play in association with the Red Stitch Theatre in St Kilda. It certainly came across as a very polished piece of work. The acting was superb. Especially the actor [...]

beautiful evening of pinot noir and Algerian French food

Such a lovely evening. The photo doesn't capture the magic, the building of connections between a lovely group of friends. Going out to dinner with Maximilien makes me swoon. He is so gorgeous. I want to touch his arm. I want to kiss his cheek. He always hugs me goodbye. I wish I was his [...]

Wednesday evenings when I should be out getting inspired

By | July 26th, 2017|daily life, interesting people, literature|

What are you listening to now? I am NP Izzy Bizu, I found her album recently, and it is that nice kind of female, upbeat music, which can be nice at this time of day. It definitely has some soul flavours. :-) So, I guess I am not going out! I stepped out my front [...]

It is so cold! I am waiting for my little house to warm up and get cosy after a night out in the Melbourne winter. We went to the Mountain Goat Brewery in Richmond. It was really nice! :-) I feel so grateful to have such lovely friends. How are you?

sweet old man in the supermarket

By | June 25th, 2017|daily life, interesting people|

Beautiful, soulful rain. Sometimes it can be nice to choose an image first. Sometimes it triggers a thought. Tonight, it made me think of a man who I saw this afternoon when I was doing my grocery shopping. He was elderly and pushing along his walking frame, browsing items in the kitchen section of the [...]

dancing on the precipice of teary

By | June 17th, 2017|bars and restaurants, interesting people, light art, literature|

Wow! I am so wrecked. It is good to be home. There is only so much alcohol that I can pour into my tired, teary soul. I am not going to lie to you. I would do anything to be in your arms right now. Hopefully it is a trend, but I was so chatty [...]
