This week I have beenREADING
- The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
- The Girl who circumnavigated Fairyland in a ship of her own making by Catherynne M. Valente
- my galleons and sea monsters and antique-style map at school. Our Year 4 classes made maps, ships, sea creatures, storm clouds etc and wrote short narratives about them. Then they made common craft style videos of their voyagers adventures to the ‘unknown lands’ using their maps and paintings. What a fantastic day of creativity!
- my sketch from the Tramsheds at Harold Park (see Layers)
LISTENING to Melina Marchetta talking about Looking for Alibrandi as we were
DRIVING to Manly through heavy traffic on a Sunday afternoon.
GOING for our first swim of the season at Shelly Beach, Manly (it was mighty bracing to start with, but then merely refreshing). We were not the only ones there…WATCHING a crazy plan doing aerobatics over the water at Manly as we floated about.
