Lismore Arts

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.

For the last couple of days I’ve taken some time to go for an afternoon walk.

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”.

    1. 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.
