There is a lot to learn.  Here are some stolen words.
Human nature, when it is seeking power, wants either to play victim or to create victims of others...feeling sorry for ourselves we will soon find someone else to blame, accuse or attack and with impunity!  It takes away any immediate shame, guilt, or anxiety. 
Scapegoating or the creating of necessary victims, is in our hard wiring...the central pattern for maintenance of cultures since the beginning.
..we compare, compete...we condemn...the competitive power game is where it all begins. Freedom from power game is probably the only way out of the cycle of violence.
Fearing and hating on behalf of something holy and noble, the high moral ground, responsible, legitimate, takes away all guilt.
It never occurs to most people that they are becoming what they fear and hate. Projecting Instead of recognizing our own complicity.
 It takes forgiveness and healing. 
 (R Rohr)

Object of curiosity.  VW fuse and relay box pre electronics. Complexity.

Gender relations need attention now and change will take time.
Don't try too hard, exploit the situation.  Let the political party with the failings lose out.
Our other vital national priorities are neglected and it is all about the fed's issues which are not our problem. The national sphere is over and above gender reform. Multitask.

Reconciliation, Treaty, Climate, extinction rates, proper welfare, social housing, tax reform all completely neglected.
The posturing over health and education is to the detriment of the services when the states do the heavy lifting.
The federal behemoth is redundant. MP with six staffers - give us a break.
Defence, Welfare, treasury should develop other ways of management. 
Trade Relations and Climate change agreement activities are unsuccessful. 
Support the incumbents?  Let them fail.

Very disappointing this structure was perched, with approval from city council, in front of a landmark row of terrace houses. They are unique. A special feature. What was planning dept thinking, nothing meaningful.
Shame it has been destabilised by a week of rain.

Fools rush goes. Overall maybe we dont yet have the sophistication to manage in a liberated society. 
Earlier conventions around lifestyle, appearance and boundaries have changed. 
Maybe adjustment to this situation has not progressed well enough by either males or females and there is conflict.
Consent is the cry.

Sorrento Moon. News to me after all this time that the very well known song from Tina Arena is about the place Sorrento southern Victoria here pictured on a stunning day.  
On a peninsular, one shore is of the port the opposite shore is the ocean beach.

March 4 Justice and demonstrations nationwide.
In connection, vital groundwork surrounds the raising of boys so the  future generation is not useless and entitled, sexist, violent, superior and all the rest.

Beware of 'The Peninsular'. Dan the steadfast Premier of Victoria and then Health Minister Hon Greg Hunt have been hospitalised. 
Beside this, a rare flesh eating ulcer is endemic.
This pleasant locality almost has it all.

Trumpet loud and clear. 'Markel debacle'... opinion by Halfpenny in SMH well sums up THE interview. Megan was not into compromise in her days in the UK. All family life is an art at the best of times. Her interview presentation was overdone. One question is of their long term happiness.

Strange sculpture.
ABC TV presents Romeo and Juliet, Australian Ballet, Graham Murphy,  magical show with touches of comedy. 
Contemporary ballet has been winning me over but this classical version is not so ludicrous. Sacredness of love...orientalism...more...

Here was retroville with lots of homes from the 1970s or so seemingly in vogue again but probably overlooked by the inhabitants. Who am I to say?

Look up Art Deco is in the air. A landmark in Melbourne.
 Mental health services in Victoria gave life back to my relative. The care is professional. This is very fortunate as an enquiry has been made into areas found wanting and promises made to fix the situation. Mental health is a very worthy cause.

This theatre is rather ornate, of great interest yet .... . The ascent to Valhalla was by way of flights and flights of steps to the realm of Wagnerian opera. 
The beginning of the epic was good to witness, with some ridiculous moments,  but the future episodes better still and singing more way-out as the cycle gradually emerges. 
Surely any bucket list would include Bayreuth Festival....Ballet in Moscow...Opera in .xyz..Bach Fest..

Preparing mussels. Easy enough but a little offputting during an anti-cooking phase. White wine, eschallots, garlic, herbs - thats all. Low fat, healthy, suits semi-vegetarians.
Update.  Mussels are likely polluted with microplastics we are told.  Not much is known about the effects of microplastics on our health. 
Splitting hairs but interesting to know if some oceans are less polluted  with microplastics than others.
