Poetic

Poetic

So I’m interested in Digital Poetry, yes. Have you seen Google Poetic? I gotta say, and (I feel sheepish as I do) It’s my favourite form of contemporary poetry: irreverent, accidental, opportunistic, accessible, uncanny, uncomfortable, and at times, heart wrenchingly telling. It also begs a swag of somewhat uncomfortable googly questions… Did anyone anticipate the […]

Been a while

Been a while

It’s been over a month since my last post… Ever since We packed the back of my car for a family trip to Canberra. (One day ahead of schedule! All neat and beautiful!)

Doing What We Are Told

Doing What We Are Told

Today I was inspired by Alice Mrongovius’s little, beautiful, minimalist, gentle and sweet comic: “I have always hated being told what to do” A graphic meditation on sign and signage.  You can see it here:  http://issuu.com/banditfox/docs/i_have_always_hated Her zine has a particularly urban feel Rural signage looks almost, at times, comically incongruous As do power lines in a paddockThen nature […]

I’m easily sated

I’m easily sated

 A walk A pen in hand A potter in the op shop Ten minutes to arrange some flowers An hour with a Saturday night and the ABC A coffee with the paper or my cryptic or a book or a stretch… No it’s not Finding something to satisfy me I find hard but deciding which one […]
