Halloween and Day of the Dead 2017

By | October 31st, 2017|family, friends, holidays, weather|

I must say that I prefer Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) to Halloween, even though they are both kind of celebrating the same thing. Apparently there is a time between autumn and winter, where the spirits of the people who have passed away can permeate into the worlds of the living. It [...]

Fresh air and tea leaves

Good morning. How are you? I am having a breezy morning so far. It is nice to sit outside in the air at Alimentari. Beautiful day! What are you up to today? The Cat Empire are singing away in my ears. I want to add a few new albums to my library today. :-)

bright, spring evening for red wine and chai

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, [...]

Clifton Hill adventures for new red shoes

By | October 28th, 2017|parks and gardens|

Clifton Hill is a pretty suburb. Very leafy in the southern streets. I walked there today, because I wanted to buy some airy, breezy, summer Birkenstock shoes. They did not have black in my size, but they did have red. I went to a very interesting cafe for some lunch to think about this. And [...]

Gorgeous spring vibes in South Yarra

Back to where it all began. :-) It was so exciting to come to Melbourne that first long weekend in 2015. I sat in exactly the same bar on a vibrant Friday afternoon and couldn’t believe that I got through the experience without smoking a cigarette! Amazing :-) Today, I am celebrating my freedom. Even [...]

Spanish book club in the sunshine

By | October 22nd, 2017|friends, literature, parks and gardens|

Medicine for a blue heart. Spanish Book Club was so fun. I didn’t read out loud, but it was both beautiful and melodic to hear the different ways that the sounds are made in Spanish. Mistress Butterfly is right. It is very intellectually stimulating and afterwards I stayed for a drink with Little Bird. It [...]

Latino Fiesta – fun music in an unlikely pub

By | October 20th, 2017|bars and restaurants, friends, music|

I knew that I had a good weekend planned when I woke up and dived into a cheerful mood this morning. I thought that it must be all the plans for the weekend. A Latino Fiesta, an afternoon walk and gelato, craft beer with friends and a Spanish book club!! It is going to be [...]

Words of an author – the unknown and the planned

By | October 18th, 2017|daily life, holidays, literature|

It is so nice, how a novel can take you to some completely different place. I could be a young woman, living in an apartment, owned by an artist. I could be a junkie, living off scraps of his love. It could be raining outside and everything that I saw could be art. If I [...]
