Not too long after I moved to Melbourne I found out about a choir directed by the incredible, Sue Johnson, member of one of my all-time favourite bands, Coco’s Lunch. It’s been a weekly slice of heaven to sing with a group of fun, vivacious women at the beautiful Prana House. This photo is not the room we rehearse in, but it’s the room that grabbed my attention the first time I visited, so sunny and inviting!
This month, on Wednesday the 18th of July my choir has been invited to perform at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Melbourne. I’m more than a little excited… Our performance will be part of the program for the Berlinde De Bruyckere, ‘We Are All Flesh' Exhibition. If you are not familiar with her works, here is a snapshot… not particularly child friendly, but amazing, haunting sculptures of humans, animals and trees in metamorphosis.
It’s a free public event. So if you’re in Melbourne and keen for a night of singing and sculpture please come and enjoy it with us…

Wandering the back streets in northern Melbourne I stumbled upon the ultimate camouflage vehicle!
Perfect for those action hero moments… like when you’re driving to save innocent bystanders from an evil villainous foe and you see an ex lover but they haven’t noticed you yet.
Blend seamlessly into your surrounds with… “the AstroTurf-mobile”! Amazing!

It’s amazing how everything looks more sculptural when you’re on a sculpture walk. While admiring the official artworks at Sculpture by the Sea in Sydney earlier this month I also snapped this shot.

I’ve been feeling a little dead of late… late! Get it? Oh dear. Terrible joke but seriously this skeleton has the right idea… a dip at Bondi Beach would be refreshing. What’s your latest strategy or activity to pick yourself up when you’re feeling blue? It’s been surprising how much I’ve enjoyed posting these pictures every day or so from my wander around ‘Sculpture By The Sea’ in Sydney earlier this month.
