Where did March go? It feels like I just got my head around the idea of new years and now it's officially autumn. It's pretty mild so far, warmth and saltwater for a few more weeks yet, but I love the change in the evenings. I love being able to pull my quilt up and wear socks. It rained yesterday and I made a big pot of laksa which felt GOOD.
Some things on my mind of late, in between all the busy:
* A beautiful long-form piece from Farrin Foster of CityMag, charting a year of festivals in my hometown of Adelaide. I got to experience Adelaide Fringe this year, for the first time in nearly ten years and was so proud to see my town come alive. There really is nowhere like it, in the world, not just Australia. Adelaide is just the perfect size and sensibility to support an amazing festival culture. 'Festivals reflect and shape us, and there are few other forces in our society that are at once so powerful and so accessible'. High-fives Adelaide! I can't wait to move home and be part of it.
* Obsessed with this find from Miss Moss about the artwork of David Drake and Samuel Burgess Johnson for The 1975. All the neon, all the sweeping landscapes and cluttered corners and the fractured lines of songs. I couldn't love it more.
* Yup, yup, yup. Signing up for this supergroup situation, no question.
