A participant on one of the ME forums commented a while back that those who recovered no longer hung out on the forums to share what they'd learned about getting well. Now I understand why: after four years with no social life and unable to enjoy every day activities, I now have no inclination to stay indoors tapping away on the laptop. I feel like I want to be out meeting people, going to every concert, seeing every art exhibit, taking every class, walking every path, shopping in every store, sitting in every café... the urge to get out and enjoy life is strong! So here are a few photos taken in the past few weeks as I get out and about here in Melbourne. Click on any photo to see a larger version of it.
|My local train station.|
|A foggy morning in North Fitzroy. Melbourne and Sydney are well-known for the cast iron decorations on many of the older houses.|
|Carlisle Street: click on the photo to see the "Texas Milk Bar" lettering; the old milk bars are close to extinction.|
|Sandringham Beach (no, not Norfolk!)|
|Sunset over Carlisle Street.|
