Hats, ripples, paper

May 8, 2015

That sounds like a new game that rather old-fashioned children might play in the schoolground if Instagram suddenly crashed. But no, it’s an excuse to publish a photograph.

Janette and Sarah

I took this last night at the launch of Janette Pieloor’s poetry collection ripples under the skin (Walleah Press). Janette is one the right, standing with Sarah Rice, another poet. You can tell that winter is really just around the corner in Canberra, skulking and kicking. (I refuse to say Winter is coming. That now has the coolness — !— of saying ‘How about this heat? or ‘Cold enough for you? Starkly uncool.)

And the paper? Well the launch was held in Paperchain Books in Manuka. One of the few independent bookstores left in Canberra.

I have dipped into the collection and found some very disconcerting poems, which is always a good thing.

      Glad that my puns fell on fertile ground.

      I keep crashing out of your site…too much information for my dodgy old computer. You and your visually attractive blog.
