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 [...]

Firelight Festival – Docklands – June 2018

By | June 30th, 2018|light art, weather|

It is so cold. Apparently we are having the coldest winter in Melbourne for 36 years. I don't mind. It is cosy inside and around the fire, but it definitely feels colder than the previous two years that I have been here. We went to the Firelight Festival at Docklands tonight. It was nice to [...]

The Eurogliders – The Spotted Mallard

By | April 15th, 2018|bars and restaurants, light art, music|

I don’t know why 80’s music often makes me think of Turtle. Maybe it just reminds me of the coast. That is the first feeling. Then I remember the feels from that era. Those stripy leggings. I am at the Spotted Mallard in Brunswick at a Eurogliders concert. A bit of nostalgia. Live music is [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

the most beautiful girl in the world

By | November 20th, 2017|art, bars and restaurants, friends, light art, literature, weather|

It is such a beautiful evening for sharing friendship. :-) I am so happy tonight. It is Mistress Butterfly's birthday. We went to an interesting collection of writers who have recently had a residency at the Wheeler Centre. They were beautiful stories. Something that stood out for me was one writer saying 'I write to [...]

bright, spring evening for red wine and chai

By | October 28th, 2017|bars and restaurants, journal, light art, Turtle, weather|

There was such a sweet scent in the air, on my way home. Jasmine, maybe. :-) It is a beautiful night. The nicest part of my night was laughing at the penguins, the lights of the city across the bay, and sitting outside in one of the cafes on Acland Street after everyone had left, [...]

Birthday parties on a balcony – in a beautiful city

By | September 29th, 2017|architecture, bars and restaurants, friends, holidays, light art|

My evening was a feast of the senses. First, a 180 degree view of Port Melbourne from a coast facing balcony on the fifth floor. Absolutely amazing :-) Beers, sparkling, espresso martinis (not for me though, I would be climbing the walls), cheese and nice conversation. Then another view out over the harbour, with lights [...]
