Dust

This is from one of those Scholastic books that I'm sure I ordered years ago while at school. Used to love going through the listings for the next order. Always had more ticks than we could afford but I'd get one or two!

Now, while living in the desert I used to have to do a heck of a lot of dusting. Once a week every surface would need a wipe...not that every surface got it. Like the wrought iron railing running up the stair well; the one with a lot of bends and twists. That only got a thorough clean every few months.

Gosh, I hated dusting that thing! Used to wrap a cloth around my hand and go at it. All that to say I can very much relate to this poor woman...

Picnic at Hanging Rock


This classic is getting a remake apparently.

I was obsessed with the original Peter Weir film (more at this previous post) after seeing it a rep house theatre back in the early 80s. I tried to find out if the story was based on actual events. I even ordered the book through a local book store.

Every few years I revisit the story and see what new developments there have been. Like when, following the author's death, a concluding but left out chapter, made its reappearance!

So much has happened since I last looked at this particular story including a movement to take references to the story and Miranda (one of the two girls who disappear) out of the interpretation for the actual Hanging Rock site. You can read more about that and other things here on Wikipedia.

And here now, is the latest development...a tv series....

Does it suck the air out of you?


the poison sits
just a little bit too close to you
do i make you uncomfortable
does it suck the air out of you

but i love you i do
and you love me too

the poison sits
with the words that i sing for you
oh how they seem to cling to you
and how i will sing for you

but i love you i do
and you love me too

the poison sits
every part of it embraces you
do you remember lonely too
oh how i'd be lost without you

and i love you i do
and you love me too

the poison sits
just a little bit too close to you
do i make you uncomfortable
does it suck the air out of you

but i love you i do
and you love me too

but i love you i do
and you love me too

ooooooooohhho oooohooo ooohoooo ooooohooo
oooohoooooh ooohoooh oohhhhooo oooohooooho

but i love you i do
and you love me too
