I was walking through Bourke Street Mall and happened upon a wonderful busking group playing Spanish Flamenco. Quite a large crowd had gathered and everyone was tapping their feet and swaying to the rhythm. But then a lady in her 60’s started to dance. A few minutes later, a man walked by and joined her. They didn’t know each other. They were simply brought together by the music.
Saturday morning cooking class. I love this photo taken with my mum as we demonstrate how to make delicious lion’s head meatballs. Like two peas in a pod or two lions heads in a pot.
My guests were Jane Godwin, Dmetri Kakmi, Leigh Hobbs and Michael Wagner. I cooked spare ribs, steamed ocean trout, dry seared beans and millionaire chicken preceded by prawn dumplings and followed by mango sago pudding. T’was a fun-filled evening of story telling.
While the Melbourne sun warmed my back, I listened to Margaret Atwood’s “Dancing Girls” on my ipod. I sat in a fire engine red shell chair at Brighton beach, wet sandy dog at my feet, soy chai latte in my hand – a perfect moment.
And that’s the beginning of Autumn

Looks like Leigh can’t get the food to his mouth quickly enough!
Yes, Leigh did have more important things on his mind than having his photo taken (:
I love autumn, and you’ve captured some fantastic moments. There’s food, friendship, colour, nature, music and the spontaneity of the leaf-fall season.
Thanks Janeen. (; Hope you are well.
