Capture the Colour
COLOUR Our world enjoys the full rainbow spectrum of fresh, vibrant, explosive, life-force colours. Amazingly, there are only three primary colours ~ Red, Blue & Yellow – from which all other colours are mixed. The complementary colours, often referred to as being on the ‘other side of the colour wheel’, are simply two of these colours […]
Deadlines Are Lifesavers
Deadlines send shivers down my spine. Why? It’s not the deadline itself. The finish line is where all the glory happens – and it’s time for celebration. But if you have a deadline, you also have to start. And that’s the wriggle worthy part. Where the true discomfort lays ~ It’s the start-line ~ more than the dead-line. […]
Wagging Work… or, Seize the Day!

Cultural exchanges in Australia ~ I was in Brisbane last week ~ And with business done… I couldn’t resist popping into the Queensland Art Gallery for a quick look! It fascinates me how they’re able to have such a beautiful big water feature in amongst their delicate art works! For the longevity of the exhibits the […]
Ron Mueck Exhibition
When Ron Mueck’s exhibition at GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) came to Brisbane… I went on the opening day! It was an extraordinary experience of observing human forms; finding oneself staring transfixed at bodily details. Peering into the worlds of human beings frozen in time. At times the gallery crowd became part of the scene. The Wild […]
A ‘blue‘ moon? Not literally of course! The term ‘blue’ moon in recent times has come to refer to the second of two full moons occurring in a single calendar month. This can only happen when there is a full moon early in the month so as to allow for the twenty nine and a half […]
