Altercation in a bar in Prahran on Saturday night

By | September 7th, 2019|bars and restaurants, weather|

Was interesting to step out on Greville Street, Prahran tonight. After a fantastic house party bbq for an old friend’s 40th, I was at home eating dinner and remembered that my friend Miss Party Feet was hosting some drinks in South Yarra. I quickly got in touch to ask if I could join them and [...]

Ode to winter rain

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

St Kilda Festival was superb yesterday! The sun was shining, but it was not too hot and we met later in the afternoon when most of the heat was out of the day. The first band we saw was at the Latin Stage for some beautiful instruction in Latin dancing, then to the New Music [...]

Rainy Saturday art walks, naps and snacks

By | February 9th, 2019|art, weather|

Every nap, and every walk, and every piece of art I look at out there in the world today helps me to get closer to myself and closer to a more rational state of mind. Colours become just visual, without any metaphor behind them. I find my peace of mind slowly.

Holidaying on the coast

I feel so very lucky to be holidaying on the coast this year. It is so luxurious to skulk around in my pyjamas and drink coffee. The water is a beautiful temperature. It is so refreshing and lovely to swim. And it is nice to spend time with family. I don't think that I would [...]

Friyay – a spring evening at TNE

By | November 23rd, 2018|bars and restaurants, daily life, professional, weather|

Friday afternoon feels like right time to get out and get amongst it. There is a certain decadence of getting cosy in a new favourite bar that I have found and soaking up the atmosphere. After a lovely day at work and a beautiful brunch with some family friends, I feel like life is definitely [...]
