Five Little Things

Heather tagged me a couple of weeks ago with a "five things about me" meme and I promised I'd get to it when things had calmed down.

I've done quite a few of these now and I often find it hard to dig up new things to write so I thought I'd do a bit of a round up of five major things about that I've blogged about in detail over the past year and a half.

one: I'm a cat person. My cat's name is Baby. Here's a little poem I wrote from one of the earliest posts on this blog called Songs for My Cat - FEED MEoW. Also I blogged about Baby in the post Baby: personal legend #1.

two: I was a Star Trek nerd but it set me back on the path of Art after the Great Art drought that was my university days. I wrote about it during the "Week Of Geek" Rebecca the Wrecker and Plastic Girl and I held in July 2006. You can read about it these two posts My Past Life as a Trekkie and I, Florence - day 2 Geek Week.

three: I'm an arts theorist as well as a toy maker. This aspect of what I do is now mostly channelled into my work with OzFrank Theatre Matrix as their Design Dramaturge. I have from time to time written about my thoughts about art, artist writing, theory here. The following posts show some examples of that side of me - Art Criticism?, Planet of Visions - Life After Theory.

four: I love art and craft and so occasionally I've written detailed posts on art forms that have interested me. These have been very popular - Inuit Intuit - Eskimo Art and Song, Papercuts of the World - Folkart, Imperfection by design and Arachne's Legacy, Why I like Folk Art - part 1.

five: I'm Australian and I'm proud to be a part of the growth of a still young country, she is yet naive and largely unconscious of herself but possesses a broad blue sky nature. Some posts that relate to this have been - Australian Spirit, With a Little Luck - The Southern Cross, Connecting to Your Environment Though Story.

After having sampled a few of the posts included here you should have a fair hint of what occupies my thoughts at a least some of them anyway ;)

It's too late in the year to tag anyone but rest assured this will likely not be the last "five things about me" you'll read here!

Very nice.

True, too.
