Sydney bar crawl with the birthday girl... Starting point,
New York Archival photos
New York has a gravitational pull for our family. My husband and I moved there in our 20s, bright eyed and ready to experience all it could throw at us. Our home was a brownstone on the upper west side between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues. (The photo of the washing hanging between the brownstones was exactly how it looked from our back terrace-minus the washing). Now our three children are experiencing NYC for themselves and to celebrate the return yesterday of our youngest from her first solo trip to visit dear friends, I thought I'd share these wonderful archival photos.

It was my gentle brother's birthday on Sunday.
He and his beautiful Amber have little William, their son. I made Nathan one of my wrist bracelets with 'AMBER' and 'WILLIAM' stamped into the silver.
His face lit up, and he glowed with pride for the two most precious people in the world to him.
Gift a success!
The theme for this years Biennale is All Our Relations.. and has it’s roots in storytelling. ”both teller and listener inhabit the space of the story. Telling stories connects us and allows us to care, to be: it fosters collaboration; it aggregates knowledge and generates new ideas; it ignites change; and, ultimately, it builds community. In this matrix, the different projects can be compared to a set of storylines, which artists, curators and audiences relate and translate. Through this process, a collective composition is accomplished in the active generation of meanings realised by all those who take part, each taking their stories home and beyond … ” taken from the bos18.com web site.
Getting to Cockatoo island: Take the free Biennale ferry from wharf 6, Circular Quay. It operates on a regular looping service approx every 45 mins until 5pm. Or there’s a paid service with Sydney ferries.
