BEWARE OF THE LEOPARD

“But look, you found the notice, didn’t you?” “Yes,” said Arthur, “yes I did. It was on display in the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.”

stuff that gets thought about

Hi, I'm Amanda. I spend most of my life in Melbourne Australia, but I love to travel and check out how the other billions spend their days.
I write songs and poetry, and review films and books. 
And sometimes I start sentences with 'And'.

Thursday 13 November Leila Boakes - a very creative Melburnian, on the possibilities of being a Grandma, just now, Nov 2014.
Her words, my messings-about.

Long gone under houses, but the postcards remain.
Pity the words don't wish to come out and play.

Welcome

This website is being built bit by bit.

It's not very pretty yet, but I would love to get your feedback.
You'll find music, poetry, reviews and musings on life here.

Occasionally there will be performance and other events - if you're ever in Melbourne, drop in!

Anyway, you're here, I'm here (just!) and together it will be FUN!

Books, tea, travel, songs, LIFE

 

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

After many years on a trailer, the aristocratic Simoon takes to the water again, much to the delight of everyone. That's me in the middle.
