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 [...]

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 [...]

By | November 18th, 2018|daily life, music, parks and gardens, weather|

Starting again on a Sunday morning in November. The sun is shining and the birds are singing and I have no particular place to be and nothing pressing to do. I am actually craving my running playlist and I am wondering if I should get out for a run. It is a beautiful day :-)

trainspotting on a sunny spring day – video

By | October 23rd, 2018|daily life, design, weather|

Travelling by train through these amazing Melbourne landscapes will never get old. That is what I think. I captured this video of the trip from Flinders to Southern Cross, which is one of my favourite sections of track. It was a particularly happy, sunny day and I was loving capturing my experience, or at least [...]

Adventures on a sunny road to the sea

By | September 20th, 2018|daily life|

One thing is for damn sure. I know exactly what my tram route is. It goes to Docklands and Bundoora RMIT and I have absolutely no plans to LEAVE it right now. It is my tram route, the 86 and I love it hard.

I feel really quite sad right now. I want to tell 'Turtle' this, but who is Turtle really? It was so sad to see, those endangered Turtles today. . . wait. https://www.instagram.com/p/Bn2XK-MnJG1/?taken-by=guardianaustralia I don't like that very much. How are you Turtle? I miss you xx
