Nostalgia for lost love

Benalla Art Gallery

Everything you would want in a gallery and more. A Joy Hester, good iced coffee, fantastic scones, and a discerning collection (albeit small) of contemporary Australian art. Plus an excellent gift shop and a vapour trail outside.

Peonies, puppies and punk rock kids

Once upon a time there was a gypsy girl who fell in love with a punk rock kid. And before she fell in love, she and I had a silly talk that one day they would be married. I said they would be known as Canberra punk rock royalty. I too was to marry someone, though I can't remember who, but the end of the story was that we would all live happily ever after.

I'm glad this story came true because these two kids are just made to be.
