This week

By Vita Forest

This week I have been



  • Island Home by Tim Winton
  • A Field Guide to getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit

WRITING Gargoyle


  • Barangaroo for The Beach at The Sydney Festival
  • Real harbour and surf beaches to cool off as Sydney’s temperatures got ridiculously high
  • The Domain for Symphony under the Stars with Max and Lucy and school friends Gemma and Ursula and Gemma’s kids Ava and Jasper where we were

LISTENING to the Enigma Variations by Elgar and most especially Nimrod (one of my favourites) and of course the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky as we were


  • fireworks (some people had sparklers and Gemma brought glow sticks)
  • the bats fly over the Domain
  • Lucy turn over and over doing forward walkovers in any spare patch of grass wearing glowsticks at her wrists

HEARING about Max’s adventures travelling around town by public transport to visit numerous skateparks with his “squad”

STRUGGLING to sleep as the temperatures stay high through the nights
