In the quadrangle at Sydney University


This week I have been

WRITING Mobile Tales Despatch 5: Christabel and the Huntsman

READING 

  • The Story of the Lost Child by Elena Ferrante (Phew! What an experience, great ending too).
  • A Field Guide to Getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit (another gem).

WALKING 

  • part of the Great North Walk at twilight and seeing herons, tawny frogmouths and water dragons.
  • over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and around Barangaroo with Briony and some old school friends.

SNORKELLING at Shelly Beach, Manly in the crystal clear water amongst schools of fish and a teeny tiny seahorse – magic!

VISITING Sydney University with my sketching pals and 

GOING out of my comfort zone with an architectural subject (as another friend said “challenging but good”).

VISITING 

  • the MCA for the Tatsuo Miyajima Exhibition (poignant and introspective).
  • the dentist…

WATCHING 21 Grams again (what a great film).

MAKING a chair cover for Max’s armchair.

ENJOYING my staycation – Sydney is a great place to be in summer.
