• I pull apart the Covid “bliss bubble” I feel cautious around all the “Covid-19 is a beautiful corrective experience”-speak. Not because I don’t wish that such a sentiment was signifying a substantive shift in the Zeitgeist. I want it more than anything else on this poor, bedraggled planet. But is the point.

  • Yep, you can use a ‘keep cup’ during Covid-19. Here’s the facts. In the scheme of things you might deem the tragic uptick in single-use coffee cups a trifle concern. UPDATE (20 June 2020): Nearly 130 scientists, academics, and doctors from 19 countries signed onto a statement today reassuring retailers and consumers that reusable systems can be utilized safely during the pandemic by employing basic hygiene.

  • A Charles Bukowski wisdom on finding peace in iso-ordinariness Sometimes reading another’s words regarding a mindset that we are aching for, or are ready for, can take us to that mindset.

  • Some happy news from that $60K we raised together! Ah, right, then. Some happy, albeit belated news, amid the coronachaos.

  • My reading and listening list to beat climate crisis overwhelm This dilemma might be familiar to you. You might recognise it in yourself or in someone, or others, around you.

  • “What can I do?” My answer to global climate crises overwhelm. Right. I said I’d do this: give an answer to how we can best do something in the face of the devastating, overwhelming climate crises we are living in, particularly in Australia where the latest wildlife toll is over 1 billion.

  • Why Australians must rage at Prime Minister ScoMo I’ve been asked to write this post by strangers and friends. But I wanted to solidify my own thoughts, too.

  • Charity project #2 success. $113,000 raised for homeless women This is what I do now. I create charity projects where I raise money, raise awareness and then kick in my cash. I think you know the gist of how and why I do it. No? You can read about it here. My second project was a series of marino wool blankets that I designed more
  • Go all the way. It’s the only good fight there is. Do you go all the way? Want to? Want to know the formula? I hand it over to Charles Bukowski and continue below….
