I am so nervous about tonight and I am not sure why. I guess it is just the end of a year and the start of another.
I am reading a very interesting book - Dear Mr Knightley, about a woman who is studying journalism and writing letters to an anonymous man, in return for him funding her education. She writes to him and purges her soul, the difference being, that he responds to her words, if not in letters, then in [...]
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.
Beautiful music! This song - Hurricane is really full of soul. I am not a fan of all of Sarah McCleod’s stuff, but this is amazing.

Margaret Atwood is certainly an amazing story teller. I still have one episode left of the Handmaid's Tale, and that was fascinating. Dark, interesting, scary. The other day I found another one of her books in my library's ebook collection. The Heart Goes Last. It is another one of those dystopian stories that makes me [...]
Hooray!! It is a great time in Australian history. :-) I am so pleased that the Yes campaign won. We were scared, hehe, it is true. Trump, Brexit, One Nation. How many dickheads are in this country anyway? But for now, it is time to celebrate. It is such a great day! Someone at my [...]
