On the Beach

Delia and Pat in Australia

Lightscapes Perth

Winter is very much making its presence felt at the moment. We’ve had storms, cold
mornings, lots of rain and even ice on the car windscreen. On one of these cold winter nights
Pat, I and a couple of friends headed off to Kings Park to explore the magical world of
Lightscapes. This was my birthday present to Pat and I’m really glad we went and
experienced this. We got very lucky with no rain and it was an experience. I don’t think the
photos Pat has taken do it justice as the atmosphere and music really helped shape the
event. If they come back next year I think we will return.

My new job is going well, and I have applied for a permanent role (I’m currently on
secondment) in the new department I am in. We will see what happens. Mum has got her
drivers licence back- which she is very happy about. Pat and I are ramping up our house
hunting and have offered on a place but lost out to a higher bid.

We’ve also been spending a lot of time over my sisters over the past few weeks as my
brother-in-law suddenly died. It really does make one aware of the shortness of life and
making sure we truly live. I’m going to write a reflection about the stoic practice of mementomori – a Latin phrase meaning ‘remember you must die’. There are also some fabulous artworks called memento mori.

Enjoy the photos below from the Lightscapes event.

Until next time.
