so with my day job, i ended up in port augusta with the australian string quartet putting on a show for music students, their parents, teachers and various other industry reps. im here with alison (left, CEO of the ASQ) and sophie (middle, 1st violin) after what could only be described as a very successful night.


ps big thanks to greg curnow, music teacher from the area and the combo of ken/kylie from country arts plus all the venue organisers and volunteers. what a legendary crowd xx

its fringe silly season and this was parade night. we had all sorts of plans and people to meet up with and some of it happened and then went away and some of it didnt and some of it bumped into us on the night and we ended up that way... yep, we were all over the place. as far as getting something to eat or drink goes, well, that was even crazier.

next year, we will plan. well. xc

meet who sent me an image of herself.... convo started::

"im so Carrie Bradshaw right now. Typing on laptop: check. Drinking alcohol: check. Looking over New York. Ah well, 2/3 aint bad .."

where the convo's lead to is anyone's guess. it's all a tad amusing. but she's one of my contestants for monday's #twandup10... so, we have to have some practice at being distracted.... and being silly?? :))

here's to you Carrie xc

busy day but i took a break. dont do it often. i was between offices and 20 mins early for a meeting. i read the paper. have to confess its a very long time since i sat down and read a printed version of a paper. it was interesting. different. not bad.

i get media monitor emails, google reader, google alerts, blogs RSS feeds, email newsletter, friends posts, twitter, friend feed, you name it every day. i am spammed. but i love it. the more i get - the more i love.

what i found with reading the paper, was i picked up trivial crap. some of it was amusing. some of it might have been tiring over time.

do you like trivial crap? is that what the paper is for? love to know xc

the world can be such a sad place. a mad place. a bad place.
why do we hurt each other. cry with each other.
life is too short. issues must be sort. but we fought.
what did you say. why is it always may. will keep you at bay.
love you. hate you. crave you. over you.

its time to move mum into serviced apartments or retirement type serviced units. she's been in a unit for several years now, living independently but with her health its no longer viable. so... she did some investigations through the week and we went and checked them out. then we drove back along the esplanade. it was near north haven and largs bay. wOw - have these areas come a long way since i drove down there last. absolutely stunning and they have a real beachside resort feel to them.

by the time we stopped for icecream i was hooked :)

social media week luncheon at the duke of york :) xc

You leave me speechless

You leave me speechless
unable to breathe
you have me at my best
and leave me to seethe

When the day turns to nite
I give up the fight
take away the plight
remove it from my sight

who made you this way
angry inside wanting fight
no light in your day
lost sense of sight

you say you have healed
fold back the layer
as many have appealed
expose the player

what next he cried?
Cant we just be
I sighed.

Social Butterflies...

Butterflies are important economically as agents of pollination. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.

The Ancient Greek word for "butterfly" is ψυχή (psȳchē), which primarily means "soul", "mind".

Social butterfly means a gregarious person.

Social media is media designed to be disseminated through social interaction, created using highly accessible and scalable publishing techniques.

So, we started a group called the "Social Butterflies", based here in Adelaide to flutter through others worlds and to see where we could take things.

It's on Facebook at this stage only:

Love to see you flutter in and join us :)

Now, social media can be said to have three components;

1. Concept (art, information, or meme).
2. Media (physical, electronic, or verbal).
3. Social interface (intimate direct, community engagement, social viral, electronic broadcast or syndication, or other physical media such as print).

Social media can take many different forms, including Internet forums, weblogs, social blogs, wikis, podcasts, pictures, video, rating and social bookmarking. Technologies include: blogs, picture-sharing, vlogs, wall-postings, email, instant messaging, music-sharing, crowdsourcing, and voice over IP, to name a few.

Karl with a big story and a bigger heart... this is his official farewell day from work. big BBQ lunch type thing in the gardens. quite sad for many - i have only had the priviledge and honor of knowing Karl for the two years i have worked here - many have known him a lot lot longer, as evident by the turnout. he has touched us all through his strength personality, charm and ongoing humour.

more later. xc
