In no particular order…
I always think of Ruth Park’s Playing Beatie Bow… a place of ghosts and time-travellers
which always have a story to tell
Those intrepid bridge walkers
I admire them but I’ll never be one of them!
fond memories of Saturday-morning shopping in this old suburb when I lived in nearby Drummoyne many years ago—and I still love its shops and cafes and markets and Federation architecture
a stray glimpse of those iconic sails through the trees—the Sydney wow factor!
The Art Gallery of New South Wales
home of one of my favourite paintings, Grace Cossington-Smith’s The sock knitter
The coat hanger
52,800 tonnes of cross-harbour style
macarons and works of art sculpted in choux and sugar… yes, please!
Tony and Pauline (with the charming Pompey). Click here to read the story of Tony’s long-lost—and now found—band, Fuchsia
Better Read Than Dead
voted Lonely Planet’s Favourite Sydney Bookshop—and the lovely folks at BRTD have invited me there to talk about Elemental on Wednesday 24 July, 6.30pm (more information here). If you’re nearby and free that night, please come along—I’d love to see you!
