Handmaid’s Tale – spoiler alert

By | January 22nd, 2018|bullshit, cinema, interesting people, literature|

I finished the first season of the Handmaid's Tale last night. It was an intense mixture of horror and uplifting inspiration. Such a great, creative story. And I loved the ending. I loved the audacity. I loved leaving that family completely barren. Dystopian fiction can be very interesting.

So lucky to live here – beautiful evening

By | November 29th, 2017|architecture, cinema, design, parks and gardens, weather|

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.

Tenderness – Italian Film Festival

By | September 15th, 2017|cinema, light art|

The Como Cinema is a nice part of the world! I went there to see a screening of an Italian Film Festival film - Tenderness. It was lovely. Slow but emotionally interesting. It left a lot to the audience's interpretation, like good art I guess. There were so many unanswered questions, but I loved it. [...]

wholesome, glassware reflections and tea

By | May 14th, 2017|bars and restaurants, cinema, holidays, interesting people|

I could drink fine quality loose leaf chai tea all evening, and I think that I will :-) We thought these reflections on the glassware at Brunetti's were amazing. I captured it, drinking Pinot Grigio after a French film. Is there anything so rewarding as photography? It is so fun. Can I tell you a [...]

Lion – the beautiful, courageous Saroo

By | March 18th, 2017|cinema, parks and gardens|

It is incomprehensible to think about a child of five or six getting lost in a big city in India. With no way of finding his mother or brother. It is the kind of thing that nightmares are made of. My heart was in my mouth. We live such privileged lives. It is only the [...]

Her – 2013 – Science fiction by Spike Jonze

By | February 25th, 2017|cinema, relationships|

The irony of a story about a relationship between a human and an intelligent operating system, capable of learning, is not lost on me. All the more obvious how limited, how agricultural, how unfeeling, how pointless, a relationship between two humans separated by a screen, moderated by a statistic, with nothing remotely intelligent between them. [...]

Moonlight cinema – Jasper Jones

By | February 22nd, 2017|cinema, parks and gardens|

Is there anything nicer than picnicking in the Botanic Gardens on a lovely summer evening? We went to the Moonlight Cinema to see Jasper Jones last night. Wine and cheese and company in support of Australian film. It is an interesting film, filled with twists and turns, and themes of social justice. Sumptuous evening.

2 days in Paris for Valentine’s Day

By | February 14th, 2017|bars and restaurants, cinema, relationships|

2 days in Paris seemed like a bit of a strange choice for a Valentine's Day date movie at the Rooftop Cinema in Curtin House. Romantic realism perhaps. It seemed like a pretty shitty relationship, but maybe that is long term relationships for you. As I become more self aware, I am getting to know [...]
