“Atomic: full of love, full of wonder” by Nike Savvas, Australia I saw the installation for the first time at the Art Gallery of New South Wales earlier this year. Thousands of colourful balls were vibrating on a string. It was beautiful. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #24: Colorful
The image was taken four years ago. It was fun to capture the crowd on one side looking at a sculpture of a man looking at them. For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday and Su Leslie!
I liked the old-fashioned book cover. The Arrival by Shaun Tan was published in 2006. It tells the story of a traveller who leaves behind everything he knows to journey to a strange country. It is a place devoid of family and friends. Where the future is uncertain and everything is unfamiliar. The back cover […]
We finally went to watch Crazy Rich Asians a few weeks ago. We bundled our protesting son into the car and drove to a cinema a couple of suburbs away to watch it. For those who have yet to see the hit movie, it is based on the book by Kevin Kwan. It’s a love […]
I failed dismally. I am new to the game and I must have made a few mistakes when I was teaching them. After a few turns I had open rebellion on my hands. My husband declared himself the winner and refused to play. It is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday.
Sometimes it is lovely to look up at that blue Australian sky. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #21: Sky
I met a friend at work many years ago. She was and is a remarkable woman who had endured much to see better days. She came to Australia from Sudan, as it was back then, before the split. She shares just a little of what it was like running from one place to the next, […]
For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
Head an hour out of Hobart to Mt Field National Park, and you will be able to access Russell Falls. It is one of the prettiest and probably the most photographed waterfall in Tasmania. It’s an easy 20-minute walk to the falls. There are boardwalks and good tracks most of the way that takes you […]
For the Joy came in the mail two weeks ago. A friend, Miriam Chan, who once took me on a mission trip to Thailand, compiled 21 stories from Australian missionary mothers about their experiences “on the field” with co-editor Sophia Russell and published a book. “It took four years,” Miriam tells me over the phone. After receiving rejection […]
The string of shoes was found in Melbourne many years ago. I’m not sure if they’re still there. Captured the image on the phone. It’s my entry for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday this week!
It is a 12-year-old teddy bear we retired to the shelf some time ago. The material was getting too thin and fragile. For a time, teddy accompanied our son everywhere. They had great times in the park; snuggled on cold nights looking through picture books; ran down hills and spent long days at daycare. When […]
Sometime this year a boutique confectioner, Bakedown Cakery, and data visualisation specialists Small Multiples put their heads together to tell the story of multicultural Sydney in a box of chocolates. Using 2016 Census data as inspiration, they explored the relationship between ethnicity, population and taste in an Australian-first collaboration project. It sounded fascinating. And delicious. […]
