Finding an angle – people are interesting

By | April 14th, 2019|interesting people, radio, school|

My weekend had a lot of 'space' in it. This was actually a very nice thing and I got to do a lot of what stirs my soul, but it felt weird, because what I was supposed to be doing was editing an audio interview that is due on Monday (tomorrow). It is a lot [...]

The road hump of privilege on a vibrant Friday

By | April 12th, 2019|bars and restaurants, daily life|

What is happening in Collingwood on a vibrant, brisk Friday night? The streets are alive with people and light. There is a festive, rich feeling in the air. And red wine deepens the tone, adds a smoky depth to the experience of a bustling cafe on Smith Street. I am drinking a glass of Pinot [...]

First red wine of winter – happiness

By | April 10th, 2019|bars and restaurants, daily life, friends, happiness, professional|

Is there anything nicer than that first winter glass of red wine? So rich and warming and cosy. I am happy. I know that I am often quite happy, but this is a different kind of contentment. It comes from having a purpose and direction in my career. Before now, I had my fingers in [...]

Talking shop on an effervescent evening

By | March 27th, 2019|architecture, bars and restaurants, professional, school, technology|

It was interesting to venture off the island to a whole other neighbourhood tonight. An adventure, but a typically safe, academic kind of adventure to go and listen to a panel talk about e-commerce. The room was absolutely bubbling with other interested parties. This is a particularly nice quarterly meetup because they put a tab [...]

Sydney Road Street Party – Brunswick Music Festival

By | March 3rd, 2019|music, weather|

It was one of those summer days when it is advisable to stay indoors. The heat - aye, aye, aye. I was worried about going out in it after lunch to meet Miss Party Pants and friends for the Sydney Road Street Party. It actually started to cool down a little after lunch and the [...]

Jude Perl and the Saga of Sugar Hope Records

By | March 2nd, 2019|comedy, music|

Jude Perl is very funny. :-) We saw her the other night in one of her 'Jude Perl and the Saga of Sugar Hope Records' shows at Gasworks in Albert Park. It was a special show because it showed a sneak peek of footage from a feature length film that will be released 'in a [...]

Beautiful, lush, scary, suffocated Sydney

By | February 22nd, 2019|daily life, design, holidays, parks and gardens|

It is interesting to travel. It really does expand my perspective. And I should do it more, I think because I suspect that it helps build adaptability and goodness knows we all need that. Sydney is only 1000 km away (or so), but it feels like it is a completely different country! This is amazing [...]

Colours of sounds – seeing music

By | February 16th, 2019|light art, music|

Someone asked today if blue is the best sounding colour? What do you think? If you want my HONEST opinion, I feel pretty sure that for me at least, blue is by far the worst 'sounding' colour. It just doesn't give me the impression of sound at all. When I think of the colour blue [...]
