This is a blog about living where I do, photos of where I live, comments on where I live. For the moment, it is a vibrant eclectic place but there are changes afoot.
I am intrigued by how urban environments impacts on those who make the enviropnments, and how little power the inhabitants in an urban environment actually have: it’s council & developer-driven.
Mostly, it’s about Mt Lawley/Highgate/North Perth – the area I have lived in for more than a couple of decades – and nothing will be in any particular order. Global warming/climate change will be mentioned, gardens, traffic and parking, zoning and re-zoning, public policy – all those things. Photos of parks and gardens. Comparisons and contrasts, loves & hates, likes & dislikes – they will get mentioned too. These things colour my novels and stories, my poetry and artwork. Where you live, the minutia within a city, inflects the individual in so many aspects and reflects these to the rest of the country and the world.
There are many photos – of Hyde Park, the changing seasons, the water levels, the birds, the trees; – of gardens, mine and other people’s. I only have a tiny courtyard. Of sunsets and moon rise.
