Last year's Tropfest in Centennial Park.

Tropfest cancelled after huge hole in funding…  Perth’s Film & TV Institute in the State Cultural Centre will show local films made for this year’s cancelled event.

Creative Haven Fantasy Designs Coloring Book

If you’re into elves and fantasy:  Creative Haven Fantasy Designs Coloring Book by a local artist, Aaron Pocock.

And I just loved this, Colin Farrell reading William Butler Yeats.

Today’s interesting stuff from around my on-line world:

From his publisher: Alexander McCall Smith on the Books that Shaped My Life:

From the New Yorker: Barbara Pym and the new spinster:

From Emirates Airline:  New A380: Emirates shows livery as it takes aim at the fight against poaching.

And finally, a promotion for Game Rangers International and their Facebook Page, who do an amazing job training the rangers who risk their lives everyday, in many ways!

Well loyal readers, I’ve taken the plunge and opened up not one, but two ETSY shops; one to sell my BOOKS and one for my much loved SOFT TOYS.

I’m busy working on a little SOFTIE Elf and a SOFTIE Santa to make available in time for the holidays.

So if you’d like something made for someone special, please make sure you order before 15th November to get your purchases in time for Christmas.

I’ve updated my Books for Sale and offer two poetry chapbooks and a children’s story:

12LoveBooks (9)w  12RailTalesCoverPrintW  12Oct8SantaSwimHARDCover (2)e

& created a new page full of adorable Softies – unique gifts for special people: Soft Toys for Sale.

Five-O

Fifty isn’t old.

It’s really just a number…

How did I get here?

I don’t remember saying

goodbye to so many…

I’m scared once I break it,

like the fifty-dollar note;

the years will disappear.
