Show me the man who has enjoyed his school-days and I will show you a bully and a bore.


Another day, another photograph of Hobart and the Derwent estuary from atop Mount Wellington. The large estuary forms the City of Hobart, and it is often claimed to be the deepest sheltered harbour in the Southern Hemisphere. The veracity of that statement, however, remains unconfirmed!

I wrote a poem yesterday, the first in a while.
People of Short Stature

If I were a
little person,
I think that I would
resent
being cast as a
little person.

Midget.
Dwarf.
Shorty.
Shrimp.
Half-pint.
Vertically-challenged.

I think that I would
Rather be,
than to be a
little person.

You know kid, you are in a very photogenic part of the state. I like this one. From the mountain looking to the sea.
