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!

Anyone still in doubt?

Anyone still in doubt about the customary associations of pink, shopping and the infantilisation of women? Or about the way commercial enterprises might be capitalising on the pink ribbon breast cancer campaign?

Thanks to Paula for this one...

That's quite scary (I like whatladder's kitty though).

With all this talk of pink ribbons, I nearly bought one at the pharmacy the other day - just to - you know, join in. And then I didn't.

Yes, the world is still a really scary place, isn't it?
