It’s that time of the year when, for me at least, work and holidays blend together. Though officially not working on the public holidays, there are still work things I need to do. And on the days when I am officially at work, I try to balance out the time I’ve worked on the public holidays by doing some other more personal things.
Yesterday, wandering home I heard some jazz music playing at the Lismore Bowling Club. The sounds wafting out from the club were a lovely reminder of the times earlier in the year when I would head over to the club for their Sunday afternoon sessions.
But to my discovery, I’d wandered into a memorial for someone called Doreen. I can only assume she was a fan of the jazz afternoons too. As I looked around I noticed there were some other jazz aficionados there too, and as the music came to an end, I didn’t feel so bad about having “crashed” a wake.
And then today, I went for a wander around the laneway art of the centre of Lismore. Earlier this year I filmed a few short videos. As there’s been some additional art added to the laneways since I was here earlier this year, I shot another video.
In other news, I learned in the last few days the planned service station development next door to Pat and Jack’s place has been put “on hold”.

You had me at ‘crashed a wake.’
To be fair, I didn’t see the sign until after I’d bought a glass of wine and settled down to watch the band. And even then, when I saw the sign, I wasn’t sure if it was a birthday or a wake. Actually, maybe it was a birthday. Either way, there were other people seated there and being served at the bar also. So I don’t think I was the only one. It was a lovely feeling, and whether it’s my 90th of my wake, I thought it was very nice, and could be inspired to do something similar.
