Roots – 1927 – Melbourne International Arts Festival

By | October 5th, 2019|light art, theatre|

My expectations were quite high for the performance of Roots by the 1927 theatre company as part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival. For anyone who has caught a show by 1927, the mere mention of the English theatre company is enough to light up the eyes.Melbourne International Arts Festival It was an incredibly delightful [...]

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 [...]

Love and the moon – Scienceworks

I wish you guys were at the amazing Love and the Moon event at Scienceworks last night! I think you would have loved it! What the website fails to mention I think is this whole amazing exhibition upstairs that completely blew me and Bella's minds. To be true, the huge model of the moon (on [...]

Hoorah hooray – New Year’s Eve 2019

By | January 1st, 2019|bars and restaurants, family, friends, happiness, holidays, light art, music|

What an evening! And what a beautiful way to ring in 2019! I found myself back in Melbourne after quite a bit of consternation and tribulation. The IDEA was to stay on the coast and to keep helping, but my family really thought I should come back, and I was getting distressed by the prospect [...]

The warmth of red wine and friendship

By | July 29th, 2018|bars and restaurants, design, friends, light art|

It was a bit of a new experience to go shopping with a friend. It is so interesting how conversation flows in completely different ways with the stimulation of browsing lovely things. It was quite a novel experience. To add to this, is that amazing warmth that grows between two people who are drinking red [...]

Firelight Festival – Docklands – June 2018

By | June 30th, 2018|light art, weather|

It is so cold. Apparently we are having the coldest winter in Melbourne for 36 years. I don't mind. It is cosy inside and around the fire, but it definitely feels colder than the previous two years that I have been here. We went to the Firelight Festival at Docklands tonight. It was nice to [...]

The Eurogliders – The Spotted Mallard

By | April 15th, 2018|bars and restaurants, light art, music|

I don’t know why 80’s music often makes me think of Turtle. Maybe it just reminds me of the coast. That is the first feeling. Then I remember the feels from that era. Those stripy leggings. I am at the Spotted Mallard in Brunswick at a Eurogliders concert. A bit of nostalgia. Live music is [...]

Enter the dragon – White Night Melbourne

By | February 18th, 2018|art, design, light art, technology|

I am at the Melbourne Museum and I got my cup of tea. It is very refreshing. White Night tuckers me out every time! It is something about the lights, the crowds, the walking. I am supposed to be meeting some friends, but I think I am done. And what a finale! I am sitting [...]

Sundays for soap and suds

By | January 14th, 2018|daily life, friends, light art, music|

I love Sundays. It is so nice to wash clothes, wash dishes and clean the house. All the more therapeutic when I am feeling incredibly crappy from a reduction in medication. All I want to do today is to soothe my soul. I quite enjoyed Nathaniel singing Marvin Gaye at the Chapel off Chapel Summer [...]
