Day 4 - Very Hungry Pigeon

I had lunch at a cafe in the city with a friend today. We sat at an inside table because I felt cold. While we talked and waited for our food to arrive, we watched pigeons pecking crumbs that fell to the ground at the outdoor cafe tables. One pigeon had nibbled so many tasty crumbs that it could literally not fly. So it just kept waddling between the tables, looking for more fallen crumbs.

Day 3 - Blue Mountains

The other week, we went for a bushwalk in the Blue Mountains. We looked at the Three Sisters and saw the cable car glide by. We walked a long way and in the evening, our legs felt very tired.

Day 2 - Spoilt for choice

I grow vegies on my balcony and I harvest some of them fresh each evening to cook dinner or make a salad. But if I don't feel like cooking, there are 6 restaurants within fifty metres of my apartment. One Italian, two Japanese, one seafood, one Chinese, and a restaurant that just calls its food 'Asian-style'.

30 linoprints in 30 days

Am I foolish to set myself this challenge?

Friends who know me well, know that 'time management' is something I find a bit challenging. Doing things to a schedule often just collides with the meanderings of my imagination, where time is elastic and where I discover all sorts of wonderful unexpected things.

Nevertheless, I plan to post a linoprint a day for the next 30 days. Any encouragement will be greatly appreciated :-)

If things don't change...

I like this list of thoughts I read a while ago. They will you get through almost any crisis. And if they don't, I think you will still feel better for having read them.

1. Indecision is the key to flexibility.
2. There is absolutely no substitute for a genuine lack of preparation.
3. One-seventh of your life is spent on Monday.
4. Never wrestle with a pig: you both get dirty, but the pig likes it.
5. Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.
6. If things don't change, they will stay as they are.

(Thank you to the unknown originator of this list. The pig is for you, but you will have to share it with Tolli.)
