I am curious marshmallow

On Saturday evening I caught the ferry to the Quay. The atmosphere was magical on the harbour and the water looked black, sparkly and kind of gelatinous. I had an overwhelming urge to throw myself from the deck into the harbour and see what would happen. I wondered if i could swim to Fort Denison without incurring harm. Fortunately common sense prevailed. Several days later a shark attacked a diver in the harbour.

Cold and austere, yet so vulnerable. Recalling Knut Hamsun’s Hunger at his most despairing. A beautiful work.

are you familiar with Five Bells? It's a song by the Whitlams

Yes but I understand it was written by Kenneth Selangor. However, Selangor and 'troubadour' do share alma mater (secondary)and that's where the similarities ended. Well apart from those nice pewter chalices that K's father provided to the school for speech day prizes.

I so wish I knew what you were talking about.

Poor you. Poor obtuse yet curiously superior you.
