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!

In which I sing the Magic Flute

A Saturday afternoon in the BMW Edge theatre at Federation Square. Wintry light, the river, and blue-grey clouds visible through the glass walls that surround the stage. And inside, I'm singing The Magic Flute with Victorian Opera's Richard Gill. And it was just like this.

Yes! You would absolutely adore it. Next time I'm going to make sure you know in advance so you can schedule a visit. Messiah in December?

Which reminds me that to my horror I realised yesterday that I still owe you an email and yes a visit to Adders in the coming months would be wonderful -- I will write said email in a minute!
