Peter Robinson’s Snow Ball Blind Time from the 2012 Sydney Biennale. Installation at Cockatoo Island.
Found this track on my ipod and have really been getting into it. Very beautiful.
Amazing how songs just hit you again even after not having listened to them for a very long time.
Cosma is Avihen Livne. On February 10th of 2003 he was on holiday in Goa, and while driving back from Palulim beach to his hotel, he was involved in a motorcycle accident. He was hospitalized, but despite all medical efforts, he passed away. There is an interesting interview with him here.
Took this on the way down to the Balmain Ferry wharf. There are lots of beautiful houses in Balmain and it is a lovely place for Sunday brunch, or just to go for a wander around.
Looking out across Iron Cove from King George Park. Love the light in Sydney. Idyllic.
Those 2 boys got their ride
& slept through the night
& knowing they would make it
with thump left in their tickers
Sometimes it is nice to take
the L38 into town. It isn’t
the quickest route but sometimes
it is worth it to skip through beauty
Balloons on a fence. Remnants of
the weekend. The bus is full, chocker
Sailing into Port Jackson, plimsoll
lines bobbing on rough hewn streets
Stuck in traffic flowing past the sentinels
like the fleas in your beard. Black Wattle
bay pleasure craft at rest. Our dead
sing a litany of progress and harsh sunlight.
The tangihanga would have been forty years
ago. Just before my time; when servis
still had bowsers. The mountains are
still are the rivers. Into aroha’s arms.
They, we, he, me
don’t hitch much these days
we still travel.
The photo above was taken looking north from Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, out across Lion Island nature reserve and Broken Bay, where the Hawkesbury River meets the sea.
We went there last month for Chooch’s birthday. The park is a lovely day trip from Sydney, perfect for a picnic with lots of nice walks to do.
Google have released an 8 bit controller for NES – very cute! and I love the route option.
You have to love that video:)
Will be back in Japan end of the week – will have to dig our Nintendo out of storage – now where can we get one of those cartridges…
Will be visiting the Weka Pass Railway for a ride on their A class steam locomotive – a 1909 built “A” Class “Pacific” steam locomotive number 428, the only one of its type still operational.. The Weka Pass Railway is based in Waipara approximately 60km north of Christchurch in New Zealand’s South Island. The
There are two trips on running days – departing at 11:30 and 2pm from the Glenmark Station. To get there drive north from Christchurch and then at Waipara turn off at the SH1 and SH7 junction and follow the signposts through the Village of Waipara on Glenmark Drive to find Glenamrk Station on the North side of the Village.
The trip up through the Weka Pass is a pleasant ride through some beautiful North Canterbury landscape and some amazing rock formations. Being able to ride in the outside carriage behind the steam locomotive is also a very special experience. Looking forward to it!
