Green Shoes

I love these green shoes and I love that it's getting warm enough to wear them again. They're from my favourite show designer John Fluevog. I just can't get enough of his shoes.

Street Art Wednesday

I saw this wall of art the other night when I was coming home from a lovely dinner at the Vegie Bar with a friend. The colous are just so beautiful but also the lotus flower is a sign of new beginnings and that's where I feel like I am right now. On the verge of a new beginning.

Random Dance

Last night as I was walking through the city I came across this group of kids performing in a laneway. Turns out they are part of the Melbourne International Arts Festival and part of a group called A.R.A.B which you can read about here. They were brilliant and everyone was really getting into it. Such a great surprise to find.

Ready To Bloom

I'm finally starting to really get into my new job but it's been an interesting process. I'd forgotten what it's like to be the person that doesn't have the answers and who is always asking the questions. I feel like I'm back to being a little bud rather than a full blown flower. Maybe it's because it's the start of spring but I feel as though the little bud is getting ready to bloom. I feel like big, exciting things are ahead for me and I am trying to be patient and aware ready to let them happen.

I love the fact that I now work in the middle of a park. On a beautiful day, it's the perfect place to be.

Street Art Wednesday

Yesterday on my way home I came across these guys painting a wall. I stopped and asked if I could take a few photos. It was interesting to watch them creating the artwork and after taking so many photos of street art it was great to actually see some being created.

Afternoon Sunshine

I got home early today and spent some time hanging on the front porch with the dog. She loves to lie in the sun and this was her catching the last moments of afternoon sunshine.

Caught In The Rain

On the way home from work today I got caught in an almighty downpour with no umbrella. I stopped under a tree and waited and waited and then I got out my camera!

Flowers For You

I saw these flowers on the step of a shop during my lunch break. I had to take a photo as they looked so lovely just sitting waiting to make someone smile.
Have a great weekend everyone.

Random Acts Of Kindness

Yesterday as my train pulled up at the platform I saw a girl buying a drink from a vending machine. Upon seeing the train pull in, she grabbed her drink and hurried towards it, leaving her change behind. As she boarded, a man walking past paused and collected the money. He boarded the train via a different door to the girl, and my first thought was "What a cheeky guy, just taking her change like that". But as I watched, the man made his way down the train carriage and stopped at her seat. He handed her the money and walked away. The surprised smile on her face brought a smile to mine, and I kept smiling for quite some time afterwards. It reminded me how quickly we can jump to a negative conclusion rather than a positive one.
