It would be good to give much thought, before you try to find words for something so lost, for those long childhood afternoons you knew that vanished so completely – and why? We’re still reminded -: sometimes by a rain, but we can no longer say what it means; life was never again so filled […]

I raise up my voice —not so that I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard. Malala Work by Brigita Ozolins as part of the Hobart Current: Liberty exhibition. nipaluna / Hobart | Hasselblad 500cm | Tri-X
Spiderwebs on my arms and in my face. Black cockatoos flying together shriek their delight. Water moves below. Yellow, brown and purple fungi whisper their first hello. There are three waterfalls on the Smoko Creek track in Meander. The first (shown above) is reached within about 45 minutes walking and is pretty speccy. Many brightly […]

Took a visit to the Tasmanian Arboretum in Eugenana the other day. Saw part of the collection of 4,800 living trees from seven geographic locations around the world. It was a beautiful day weather wise and I spent a good part of my time head to the ground watching for snakes. I happened to look […]

Distance changes utterly when you take the world on foot. A mile becomes a long way, two miles literally considerable, ten miles whopping, fifty miles at the very limits of conception. The world, you realize, is enormous in a way that only you and a small community of fellow hikers know. Planetary scale is your […]
