The magic of K’Gari

Spontaneous adventures are the best! Yesterday a friend and I jumped on a bus, and headed over to K’Gari (as its Indigenous name, yet also known as Fraser Island). For those of you not familiar with Australia, K’Gari is the largest sand island off the East coast, and is home to some of the most … Continue reading

For art’s sake!

Hey guys and gals, (ugh, I never say or use the word gals!) Anyway, I have a semi-big favour to ask of you. Because, art matters. Because, lives matter. Because, knowing about your people, and ancestry, matters. Because, kindness matters. Because, culture and diversity matters. Because, helping people matters. I have this friend, who has entered … Continue reading

I don’t wanna die anymore

For some reason, I love The Smith Street Band. I think their music is actually kind of shitty, but I just love them regardless…because, yeah, I’m weird like that.

My brother and sister were always the more athletic ones in the family, and I would opt for sitting on the beach rather … Continue reading

Conversations (one)

Me: hey, you know how you can’t really go swimming up in North QLD in summer because of all the jellyfish? Is that the same in Western Australia? Flatmate: no, but there are more sharks. Me: …oh yeah. Dammit.

Just another sunset

This post is for Clare’s photo of the week. I mean, do I really need to explain this photo and why it appeals to me? It’s the epitome of beauty in all its simplicity, yet so immensely complex at the same time. Nature will never cease to amaze me, and evenings like this just blow my … Continue reading

Shopping for opportunity

I’ve always loved shopping at op shops. There are so many great and wonderful things to be found, and generally items are in a sense, “original”. What I mean by that is that if you go shopping at your average shop in a shopping centre, you will find a number of the same item in … Continue reading
