WFC 3 redux, hiding under WFX X. Bikes subsuming trains. BrisVegas has art at least once every three years.


Uploaded a reading of fleece's story One-Twenty from WFC3.

I put it on the WFC X site, because the uploads were open there.

Still hoping to put in a Daniel Cobb story for the actual WFC X though. This is really more of a seasonally appropriate Southern Hemisphere entry for the Summer Fun Contest.


Commute has been mostly bike recently. It was a bike on train commute for a time, but I discovered a bike path runs along Kedron Brook.

There are even fragments of poetry there, like on the underground, but they are designed to be read at pedestrian speed. Alternatively, they are designed so that cyclists only read the first line. They are about haiku length without actually being haiku, but with some of that word-image vibe seen in eg Tang poetry. By which I mean they are about fruit bats, haze and cicadas, the stuff you see by Brisbane creeks.

Neither I nor google have the text.

Wombats and Flowers

Went to see the exhibition for the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial, with MiniMarch, so particularly the Kids APT.

Bit of a mixed bag but not without merit. I liked the Yoshitomo Nara interpretation of a Queenslander (house). Read a snobbish review of the stuffed stag covered in glass balls but the effect was rather stylish.

The kids exhibitions were by artists exhibiting in the main gallery ... I thought the soft toy Tang garden (The Hidden Garden) was kind of cool. The Hi! I Am India stickers are on our fridge. Unfortunately they were out of cricketers but I think the vibe is there.

Nicely read. I'd forgotten that story entirely.

I didn't realise you were australian, or maybe i used to know & forgot. listening to that was a strange experience, my own words in someone else's voice. all i could think about was additional edits I'd like to do :)

Thanks for writing it :)

I think I found it a bit easier to approach knowing the accent would be in the right ballpark. And it does have a sense of place, that story, even though it isn't in your face about it.
