I was recovering from a cold earlier this month. I had gone into work but discovered my body wasn’t ready to get back to it. Wilting fast, I drove to the doctors and ducked into a Malaysian place for lunch. I ordered and tried not to hack up a lung as I waited for the […]
It was a beautiful night. A warm night. A friend and I bought cheap-ish tickets to the Opera on the harbour. I left my husband and young son at home, and we saw fireworks and betrayal play out over the water. The giant orange ball was supposed to represent the rising sun. Alas for poor […]
It was just a little posy. But it was pretty. For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
I haven’t watched Nanette. I want to watch Nanette. I should watch Nanette. From the trailers, it seems like a soul-searing look at one woman’s story. Someone who is, in her own words, “gender not-normal”. “I don’t identify as transgender. But I’m clearly gender not-normal. I don’t think even lesbian is the right identity for […]

Using LED modules, the artist creates a moving image of a woman who looks like she is floating through space. It’s a sketch of a distant memory; of a mother; […]

Taken on one of my early morning walks some time ago. For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday
My son is in his final year at primary school. He is a solid, average student. He isn’t the highest achiever in his class and has had some intensive academic support at school to keep him in the middle. His local public school is not as well resourced as the expensive private schools, but I […]

Thank you. That’s what I’d say. It mustn’t be easy being in the hot seat. To feel the weight of responsibility to preach the Gospel. To make a public stand for God. Only to be torn down by Christians and non-Christians alike. In a world where there is opposition to the message of love and […]
I cheated a little with “CBD”… Shot on the iPhone and edited with Hipstamatic. For Debbie’s Six Word Saturday!
