Back to normal?

So, the last 6+ weeks have been all about our trip to India and Malaysia. The planning, doing and the posting of photos and memories. But I’ve been back at work a week now and it’s time to take stock and think about the year ahead. At a glance it’s like most years: It all…

Altre Voci – una recensione

Il mio collega da Yoga, Leandro Salomone è un artista. Nelle sue opere si utilizzano oggetti che si trovano nella vita quotidiana, come fibre naturali, metalli, pittura, legna o altre cose. Sabato siamo andati a vedere la sua mostra in corso. Come la maggiore parte delle sue opere, quella mostra, si chiama ‘Altre voci’, è…

A recent quick trip to Sydney

A quick trip to Sydney is always a treat, but never long enough to catch up with everyone. When I went at the end of September I was fortunate enough to slip in a bit of Art! With iPhone in hand I roamed the streets of Sydney and hit the Art Gallery of New South…

Adelaide Fringe parade cancelled due to rain

Who would have thought there would be enough rain in Adelaide in February to cancel a parade? Well no one! But rain it did, pretty much all day. The amazing king and queen were left hanging from the crane for a few hours and we grabbed this snap as we were leaving the muster area….

That was the year that was – 2010

How lucky am I that last year, 2010, was one of mostly ‘highs’ for me.  Even some of the lows brought unexpected moments of bitter-sweet melancholy. And that’s a good thing in my book.  The idea that we must always be happy is such a western concept. Times of sober pensiveness are important aspects of…

Light through wet winter branches, Adelaide

I walked through Victoria Square this evening on my way home and was struck by the beauty of the bare branches, wet from the earlier rain. The light made them look icy but it’s not cold enough here for ice. Surely the worst of winter, such as it is in Adelaide, is over. The Greek…

The tyranny of the day job

In itself, my job at the documentation factory is not that bad.  I am currently redesigning forms for a credit union using Adobe LiveCycle Designer.  “Designing forms, how boring” I hear you say.  But, believe me, if you like technology and getting to play with new software, and feel good about process improvements and that…

Melbourne was Fab

Our 24 hours in Melbourne were heaps fun.  We did the very early flight over which gave us time to drop off bags at hotel in CBD, cruise the shops and lanes of Melbourne, grab a quick lunch and head off to the National Gallery of Victoria for the Salvador Dali exhibition before heading to…

3 weeks and one day ago

That’s a sad sight for a wannabee blogger. It’s too late now to add much, except to say that we have been away. I had limited internet access while away as we stayed in a cabin on a hill near Apollo Bay and spent our days hiking to waterfalls and admiring the scenery along the…
