If I were a voodoo-hoodoo, my more annoying clients might experience the mysterious onset of a headache around 7:30 on a certain week night.
“Do you know why people like violence? It is because it feels good.”
Alan Turing in The Imitation Game
But the only violence I like is the kind that doesn’t hurt anything.
Chu-daiko and Shime-daiko
Taiko is perfect. Thus far, we’ve learnt the basics of the Miyake and Yatai-bayashi rhythms, fantastic workouts for the body, brain and voice.

I’ve lived in Sydney for longer than the annual Vivid festival’s been going, but this year is the first time I went down to the Harbour to take a look. It’s fabulous, the atmosphere, the music and the visual splendour. Tonight’s the last night, so if you’re in Sydney and you haven’t been yet, get rugged up, and head to
Vivid tonight for a wonderful evening.

This week’s photo challenge
theme is one I’ve participated in previously, so I’m giving it a miss. Instead, in response to this question from Elizabeth over at Mirth and Motivation, I’m posting my Mondegreen poem, which I wrote for Gabrielle Bryden’s some time ago. Citrus Fiesta
naughty lemon by bb
I thought it really quite absurd
(and way too weird) when I heard
the 70s band sing Hot Chocolate
about the very strangest thing –
wild lemony in Cadillacs, love
the of joys in the sack! lemons
One day it dawned it wasn’t
‘ ‘ lemons
of which they sung, but rather ‘ ‘ heaven’s
and so the song proved less obscene,
and my mishearing, a Mondegreen 😯
I’m taking a break from blogging for a while.
And hope to see you on the other side.
