art and culture lovers – I love Melbourne

By | September 8th, 2017|bars and restaurants, bullshit|

I am pretty sure that what matters to me at least is art and culture. And people who enjoy art and culture. There is something so satisfying about getting completely out of my own head for an evening or afternoon. Tonight was not one of these nights. It was a younger crowd, that my friend [...]

I just got the most incredible bunch of flowers for my birthday. They smell so sweet, of Australian wattle. They also have tulips, orange roses and some magnolia. They have added a certain happiness to my day. I am feeling excited about being alive and in the world. It is nice to step out for [...]

Tim Flannery – Sunlight and Seaweed

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 nice thing about living in the city is that if my heart feels so broken on a Saturday morning, I can go out into the world and get so distracted. The city that I live in is such a feast of the senses. A walk in my neighbourhood to buy tea turned into an [...]

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

By | August 20th, 2017|bars and restaurants, interesting people|

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 [...]
