“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.”

out of my mind

When I have stuff to say that isn't a song, isn't a poem and isn't a review - and isn't what I am supposed to be working on, well, it's a blog, isn't it?
Presenting the stuff that comes out of my mind

things to be grateful for

Well hello there!

This is entry number one to hopefully a long, rewarding and joyful - if slightly one-sided - conversation.
It's also a great way for me to pretend to be working when actually, it's far more like play.

Great stuff happened today:

  • Wild crazy wind like the wind in Wuthering Heights. Given I live in Suburban Northcote, Australia, probably that's less suitable than if I were a country lass in England. Also, my hair isn't magnificently curly - or even Kate Bush-esque - something a lass would need should she decide to walk the wildy windy moors, I feel. But the wind today was extraordinary.
  • My mate Denny, warrior poet of Red Rabbit Rubbish fame, spent an apocalyptic afternoon loading rubbish from a neighbour's house in the wind and the rain - so I got to loaf about and watch him work. We wrote a couple of new tag-lines for his business - this was my fave:
    "Red Rabbit Rubbish - 'Cause we like breaking Sh*t Up" 
    I also thought a TV chat show from the cab of his truck could work really well - musings on the weird stuff you find in rubbish removal, the greater stuff of life, and the occasional guest spot for the interesting people Den meets along the way.
  • And I actually got a little more of this e-furniture moved about on my website. It's starting to look like something I would be happy to present to you.

So here it is.
Hope you enjoy the rearrangement. Talk soon!
