Thus, neither of us is alive when the reader opens this book. But while the blood still throbs through my writing hand, you are still as much part of blessed matter as I am, and I can still talk to you from here in Alaska. Be true to your Dick. Do not let other fellows touch you. Do not talk to strangers. I hope you will love your baby. I hope it will be a boy. That husband of yours, I hope, will always treat you well, because otherwise my specter shall come at him, like black smoke, like a demented giant, and pull him apart nerve by nerve. I am thinking of aurochs and angels, the secret of durable pigments, the prophetic sonnets, the refuge of art. And this is the only immortality you and I may share, my Lolita.

As I walk to the mailbox I see the letter that tells me that after hours and hours of sewing, multiple broken needles, lots of money, multiple unnecessary spotlight visits, maniacal laughs and tears, sleepless nights and superior concentration the hard work has paid off, I have been accepted into this years Texstyle exhibition from the 29th of November to the 5th of December at the teacher's federation conference centre!

Texstyle is also displayed at the Craft and quilt fair in Sydney, Canberra, Rosehill racecourse and Newcastle.

To people who can't sew, I couldn't, just do textiles, even though silly teachers at school tell you that you'll fail by doing a practical subject by correspondence, its fun really and this is the best feeling ever.

This is my major work which was inspired by the picture book and movie "Where The Wild Things Are."

I am sorry for the ridiculous faces I am pulling.

Also thank you to my teacher Dianne Grose who is amazing and without her I'd be lame, and congratulations to my other distance ed-ers who were accepted as well.

Sally Mann

Sally Mann's photography captures the confusing emotions and developing identities of children and adolescents. Mann's photographs are swirling, ethereal images with a center of preternatural clarity.

Andy Irons

Andy Irons is just one of those guys that had always made me want to be a surfer, unfortunately I never really have and I think it should go to the top of the list of things to do. Andy was an inspiration to many, he is a legend and will never be forgotten. My prayers and best wishes go out to his family and friends.

Ooft, 90s soft rock bands, unfortunately not many come like this any more.

Extreme- 'More Than Words'


My absolute favourite month of the year, when men and boys around the world do their best to grow a mo. Each year Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the world, with the sole aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and depression in men.

Men sporting Movember moustaches, known as Mo Bros, become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo growing efforts. The rules are simple; register online at and start the month of Movember clean shaven, before growing a Mo.  

For the mo sisters that can't grow a mo but want in on the action, check out the link to this website  to have a lovely lady make you a mo/beard, any type of facial hair is lovely.
