Woven together

Sometimes I don’t like watching the news and this is one of those weeks.  I know we’re not immune from the things that are happening on the world stage but it can seem much worse the more attention you give it.  Whatever happens, everyone loses when hatred and fear win and I feel for the politicians who have to make hard decisions in order to do what they think is best to protect the majority of us who simply wish to live in a peaceful, inclusive society.

On a brighter note, there are a number of cultural and other activities currently happening around the place.  It’s World Wide Knit in Public Day on Saturday 10 June and Australia is one of the participants including activities taking place locally here in Banyule.  Timely too with it being winter here in the southern hemisphere.  I discovered upmarket knitwear label Cable Melbourne not that long ago and have long loved the sweaters from Purl Harbour in Sydney.

In the city, the Van Gogh and the Seasons exhibition is currently on at the NGV and I love the sound of the accompanying Lunch like Van Gogh deal at No 35 Restaurant at the Sofitel where you’re treated to classic French edible works-of-art from $45.  Sounds like lots of fun.

The Winter Night Market at the Queen Victoria Market has started on Wednesday nights if you’re brave enough to face the elements (albeit largely undercover) while the music lover in me has been curious about both Bird’s Basement in the city and The Jazzlab in Brunswick.
