    A delicious peek at what’s happening around Sydney – thanks Mo! And how fantastic to have your own personal guide around the Fern House!

  2. Thanks for the viewing. Love the glass and Peter Godwin’s work.

  3. It’s Spring in your part of the world, and nothing here is the least like Spring. The game without rules is stark and strange to me but I like the notion of it. Last night I cruised the river thanks to a friend with a ticket to share…danced with the young, and gazed at the two blue beams rising up into the sky memorializing the dead of World Trade Center 9.11.2001 for the fourteenth year. I wrote a short piece about my own experience on that day and posted at Face book….I’ll pass it along to you there. Today, I am a limping old lady again in recovery from too much fun 🙂

    That Drinkwater game is intriguing; I think I’d need to see it and really look at it. And that’s a cute dragon! I miss all the dragons, although there are lots of goannas not far away. 🙂

    Thank you for introducing me to Shane Drinkwater … I just visited his page and love how his marks and forms have the feel of stitch and cloth
