I’ll bark
When I go mad
And not before
I’ll climb up the walls
When I learn how
Scratching around
Down there
Is fine with me
From what I’ve heard
Not such a bad place to be.

While better is possible
It may not be probable
As acceptance is making
My bed tonight
While dances in the constellations
Relieves me from chance.

Written a few years ago but certainly still relevant personally.

My first performed play - at Sydney Festival

I'm thrilled to announce that I have a play that will be performed at the Short and Sweet Festival in Sydney, which is currently underway. I'm also directing it.
It will occur in the 9th week from the 15th to the 18th of March inclusive. Thursday to Sunday. Four performances in total. If you're in town, I hope you can make it.

It's called Three Little Words and is adapted from a short story from my collection, Pseudo Stars.
While I've written a few plays before, this is the first to be performed. So pretty excited and pretty nervous.

What's it called?
Three Little Words. 

What's it about?
I'm an alcoholic? No I'm not. 

That gives you an idea. Kinda...

Weird theatrical types

I hope to film it somehow, so if you miss it, it may end up online. Maybe.

Gundagai - the town, the history and one extraordinary man

A video I made from two visits.
Much more to this town that that 'dog'.
Full of history, much of it well preserved.
Situated near the Victorian / NSW border.

Featuring music from America, Neil Diamond, Ultravox, Eurogliders and more.
Also came across a 97 year old who has been awarded the Order of Australia Medal.
