Sydney

It was no real surprise that our flight was cancelled. The wind the night before nearly made me airborne. Or was that the glorious wine from Patrick’s private collection ?

It was a long weekend and determined not to shorten it we took a cab back into town and had breakfast in Joes Garage. Then we crossed the road and took in the Warhol exhibition, pretending we were already there.

It rained when we finally got there. Movie rain. Straight down and bouncing off the concrete like we were at the thought of being together. Record stores and witchcraft and spells and vodka martinis in the Morrison Hotel bar

We didn’t want to go home in the early morning.

  1. Hi Ashley, as I sit back in my bed waiting for my brother and sister in law to stir, its raining in the quiet leafy Johannesburg called Sunninghill. There has been no sun for two days, yet that’s ok. I feel content to listen to the early morning chorus of Ibis, laughing doves, turtle doves and a large number of other Symphony feathered creatures. I’m pondering what my journey past Soweto will be and whether I should have taken out extra insurance.
    Well suffice to say I really enjoyed your blog today and look forward to sponging up more of your creative content. Way to go my man!!

There has been no sun for two days, yet that’s ok. I feel content to listen to the early morning chorus of Ibis, laughing doves, turtle doves and a large number of other symphonied feathered creatures competing for the loudest and most magical bird call. I’m pondering what my journey past Soweto will be and whether I should have taken out extra insurance.
