Mini rant about Halloween

O.K.- I'm pretty much a pagan and my birthday falls on the 31st October, so I'm all for celebrating the seasons, but hear me fellow inhabitants of the Southern Hemisphere! Now is NOT the time to celebrate Halloween- we are in a glorious Springtime- one of the best we've had in over a decade- with rain and daisies and butterflies and fruit trees in blossom and fertility-what on earth are you doing trying to celibrate Autumn and the harvest festival now?
Quite frankly- it's ridiculous, and more than a little embarassing..don't you know where you live?
Please don't do it.
We can do all of that in our Autumn when we can actually go and pick the pumpkins from our own backyards- not now when the only pumpkins you'll find are ancient and their seeds ready to be planted not harvested!!!!
Think about it...and revel in the sunshine and smell the jasmine...and go plant some pumpkin seeds.

Busy month

I've had a bit of a busy spell with a show opening and a trip to Qld. I'm not someone who enjoys being busy, but in this case both were lots of fun. The Innerscapes show was wonderfully organised by Nahomi Yoshizawa, and the Opening was delightful with plenty of people and atmosphere. The Adrianakis Fitzroy Gallery is a super space too- very "old Fitzroy" according to Ben- usefully located opposite The Standard Hotel as well.
Woodgate was splendid as always, and we had a truly magnificent sunrise one morning.
Now suddenly it's the end of October, and I'm another year can that be? It's Halloween for those in North America, but Spring Solstice for us here in the Southern Hemisphere- either way dancing under the moon is strongly recommended.

Sometimes it's a costume sometimes it's a Amy Rice

Just love this postcard design (and its title) from the marvellous Amy Rice.
I know just what she means.
