I've kept this blog, on and off, since 2006. In 2015 I used it to chart daily encounters, images, thoughts and feelings about volcanic basalt/bluestone in Melbourne and Victoria, especially in the first part of the year. I plan to write a book provisionally titled Bluestone: An Emotional History, about human uses of and feelings for bluestone. But I am also working on quite a few other projects and a big grant application, especially now I am on research leave. I'm working mostly from home, then, for six months, and will need online sociability for company!

Medieval Manuscripts in Melbourne

For Melbourne readers, an invitation to an afternoon with some of the beautiful manuscripts in the State Library collection. Ignore the blurb, which tells you that manuscripts preceded books, and were made by hand! These are three experts and good speakers, and this would be a lovely way to spend a chilly Melbourne afternoon. Click to enlarge....
