By | July 7th, 2019|literature, weather|

Warm in winter clothes while the rain falls. Sheltered from the atmospheric cold and wet. And viewing the world, separated by glass. It pours down around me. The world is bursting open with the life-giving product of the heavens. And while it is so cold outside, the bracing air outside feels all the more snug [...]

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

By | June 9th, 2019|theatre|

So far, I have only had the experience of seeing Part Two of the Harry Potter play, currently showing at the Princess Theatre in Melbourne. It was absolutely brilliant. If you have tickets, or access to tickets, I don't think you will regret it. The plot is compelling and the stage craft is amazing. When [...]

Balloon (2018) – German Film Festival

By | June 8th, 2019|cinema|

Few movies grip you with terror from the first few scenes and hold you there for 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Subconscious of the socially satiated

By | May 15th, 2019|art|

This is what the subconscious of a person who has reached the limit of social connection for one day looks like in art. And so she withdraws into artwork and writing and tea. The colours remind me of education, pure and simple. They represent the colours of school from childhood. The epitome and rock bed [...]

Start with a song! – The challenge

By | April 30th, 2019|music|

The challenge is: to 'Start with a song'. It makes me laugh to read this from Daily Challenge because I ALWAYS start with a song. One of the nicest things about my psychology is that I wake up each (mostly) day with an earworm or a song in my head. The challenge then is to [...]
