Finishing touch to tonight’s installation.
In 2010 I spent a year working for Warlayirti Artists in Balgo, W.A. and part of my tenure, help document some church banners that locals had painted in the early 80’s. For Balgo at least, these banners were the start of the area’s contemporary painting movement and will be discussed at this event next Monday at RMIT. I managed to find some Balgo photo’s today and thought I’d share this from a trip out to Lake Mulan with my then housemate Damo and the dogs.
I went to the ‘School of Life’ yesterday at 2pm to realise the ‘How to have better conversations’ class began at 6! Gawd! Anyway, come 6 o’clock the class went ahead and it was pretty insightful and enjoyably social. I reflected today on some of the main bits spoken about and thought I’d share them here.

I finally got to see this movie recently. It was ‘ordinary’ but good because of just that – if that makes sense. Oh and B&W. I enjoyed that.
So yep.. I see on Tumblr a fair few ‘positive,’ life affirming posts - from some more than others… makes me sick! LOL. Jk. But we all use this platform how we may and such is the internet.
Anyway, with Spring now here and reflecting back on Winter I too find that I would like to express.. gratitude – for these last three months and beyond. All these people here are a good place to start. I’m very lucky to know, to learn from, and to laugh with this mob. For every single experience, every single moment, every single day, I am grateful.
We will return to our regular programming in just a few moments.
