Sydney Snow Ball Blind Time

Snow Ball Blind Time

Peter Robinson’s Snow Ball Blind Time from the 2012 Sydney Biennale. Installation at Cockatoo Island.

Cosma – Simplicity

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.

18th Sydney Biennale 01

Taken at the 18th Sydney Biennale.

Old House Balmain

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.

Iron Cove, Sydney

Looking out across Iron Cove from King George Park. Love the light in Sydney. Idyllic.

The L38

The L38

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.

Looking North from Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park

Ku-ring-gai Chase is a national park in New South Wales, Australia, 25 km north of Sydney located largely within the Ku-ring-gai, Hornsby, Warringah and Pittwater municipal areas.

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 Goes 8 Bit!

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…
