I’m officially moving to Sydney this weekend! We’re going to pack our little car full of belongings and move into an apartment in St. Peters. I’ll miss the natural landscape of Bathurst but Sydney is where the opportunities are. It’s a compromise.

The scents of home include the bush, silver gum nuts, pine trees and grass. I imagine that my new life will smell like spices on the street, artificial scents (like posters and printing) and air conditioning. I think Sydney will be my home for a while, I don’t know.


Fiji Mart in Newtown (spices), street press, posters, new book smell, and air conditioning.
