  • Issue 87 - An act of creation
    • Abstract: Dryburgh, James
      It took me six hours to drive from my home in Hobart to Kings Run. It was worth every minute of it.

      I had taken up the offer of camping space the night before the handover ceremony with the Aboriginal community on their land at preminghana. This stunning 500-hectare property just north of Marrawah was handed back to Aboriginal ownership in 1995.

    • Abstract: Horwood, Clarissa
      If you happen to have navigated your way past the age of 35, you might remember a dishevelled Michael Caine uttering the words, "I am afraid, Rita, that you will find that there is much less to me than meets the eye." It was his character, Frank, who announced this to a wide-eyed Open University student (Julie Walters) in Lewis Gilbert's 1983 film adaptation of Willy Russell's 1980 play Educating Rita.

  • Issue 87 - Sips and nibbles
    • Abstract: Champion, Chris
      Understanding food and wine is a diplomatic passport to life. A demonstration of epicurean knowledge and discernment, as long as it is done with modesty, will always be appreciated.

      Our Sips and Nibbles section offers a dash, a dab and a driblet of facts and occasional figures about food and wine, and the people who create them. It will never be dull. It will be at times dense but interesting, at others light but fun.

      It will enhance any conversation. It will be like a fine dinner.

      Deck the halls with shopping trolleys, fa-lala- la-la, la-la-la-la. 'Tis the season to rack up huge credit card bills, fa-la-la ... no, that can't be right. I never did know the words to that song.

  • Issue 87 - The patch: Possession
    • Abstract: Grant, Peter
      Days are warm, evenings bright and long, but we're happily ignoring all that. Instead we're keeping a tradition that properly belongs to the cold, dark, northern lands. It's taken some of our clan up into The Patch.

  • Issue 87 - Memories
    • Abstract: Tayler, Pen
      The first rays of the morning sun spread across the valley, lighting a small patch of mist as it rises from the ground. My hand runs along the frost on the button grass, touches the cold ice on the ponds, trails through the curling pandani fronds and dips into the cold water of the creek where we sometimes swam. I share a moment with a wallaby, startled by my approach before it turns and makes off across the icy plain.

  • Issue 87 - Time traveller

      Stargazer and astrophotographer, Richard Higby, is a man whose obsession with the night sky extends over six decades since he was given his first telescope at age 14.

  • Issue 87 - Paths among the stars
    • Abstract: Defenderfer, Don; Higby, Richard
      The Tasmanian starlight that leaks down from the floor of heaven fills the night sky with radiance and mystery. I gaze up at these silver pins as perhaps another being gazes down upon our planet's lights that shine so hopefully up into the darkness. Perhaps one man's head in the stars is another man's feet on the ground. I don't know. The world has always seemed an upside down place to me.

  • Issue 87 - The hedberg
    • Abstract: Freeman, Carol
      Hobart is abuzz with activity. At the corner of Campbell and Collins Streets, on the fringe of the CBD, a site in the old Wapping district is being excavated. An archaeologist chips away at brick footings and crumbling soil on the longvacant block that is soon to be the University of Tasmania's Academy of Creative Industries and Performing Arts.

    • Abstract: Scanlon, Bronwyn; O'Brien, Luke
      Monty swoops about the house, silently. His wings spread as he glides from the top of the kitchen window frame to perch on the back of a brightly coloured gym bench that sits upright in the living room. His round, dark, fluid eyes take me in.

  • Issue 87 - The liffey
    • Abstract: Kearney, Neil; Rajshekar, Mithun; Toogood, Simon; Ogden, Kim
      "Pull the chain and in a jiffy, your shit goes floating down the Liffey."

      The Liffey in that colourful piece of prose is the river that meanders through the city of Dublin and ends up flowing into the Irish Sea. Writer and poet Brendan Behan evoked the language of the streets to describe the urban squalor of his time. In the 1940s, the River Liffey was pretty much a sewer.

  • Issue 87 - Apple juice: A day in the life of a synesthete
    • Abstract: Genaris, Connie
      My eyes open. Light streams through the gaps in my curtains and catches in my squinting lashes. I inhale through my nose; catch a scent of winter, an orange-blue smell circulating through my senses. The chill air makes me shiver slightly. I sink deeper into my mountain of pillows, surrounding myself in warmth and yellow. Eventually, I face my clock. I see a blur of oranges and reds through watery eyes. My eyes always water in the morning. I wipe them with my hands and look properly: 7.21am...

  • Issue 87 - Napoleon, or, the musings of Mr Pink
    • Abstract: Noble, Ben Smith
      Mr Pink was writing a book. He had been for nearly six years, and so far he had managed a little more than a paragraph - deleted and retyped a thousand times, always hitting a wall after his eponymous hero left Corsica. The book was titled Napoleon. It had once been remarked that everyone has a novel in them, and inside Mr Pink was a novel and not much else. Sometimes, when the screen broke down and he had to wait for everything to reboot, he wondered whether he was getting obsessed, but then the screen would flick back on and Mr Pink's head would fill back up with Waterloo and Russia and that bastard Wellington...

  • Issue 86 - A wine for all seasons

      Tasmanians were foodies long before the name foodie was invented. They were reducing food miles when road trips were still counted in miles and the paddock to plate experience just meant your own food on the table rather than a experience.

    • Abstract: Garnsworthy, Penny
      Taxidermy has been with us for a long time. Birds and cats were mummified in ancient Egypt, along with their owners, in their progression to the afterlife. In Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries, "cabinets of curiosity" filled with skulls, horns and crude taxidermy animals like crocodiles and armadillos were popular. In the 17th and early 18th centuries, expeditions of hunters roamed the wilds of Africa and India in search of big game animals, at the request of wealthy private collectors, museums and even royalty. In those days, animals were killed and stuffed with whatever materials were on hand.

    • Abstract: Brodie, Nick
      A man was captured crossing a city street. His feet straddle a tram line and one arm extends in the swing of a brisk walk. A tramcar is disappearing behind him while a truck accelerates from the empty space before him. Surrounding advertisements tell their own stories. Both sides of the street implore the patriotic to Buy War Savings Certificates. A purveyor of "Kodak supplies" beckons the eye to compel the beholder to think of photography. The streetscape boasts a familiar and distant church spire pointing heavenward beyond buildings both familiar and unfamiliar, electrical wires, motorcars, more people, and forgotten daily concerns.

      Mountain biking is one of the major sports in Australia in terms of numbers, with participants also spanning a large range of age and ability. The best mountain bikes tracks adapt to this varying rider ability. A 10-year-old might be able to enjoy it and ride the entire length, but when a professional rider tackles it, the track takes on a another dimension due to the rider's speed and technical ability. Jumps appear, alternative routes appear, new obstacles and challenges appear.

Was there a memo' Mr Bowers and I were on a short break, staying at St Helens in very non-camping style hotel accommodation. I wouldn't say I am allergic to the idea of camping, but the mere suggestion of it has produced the odd reaction. Coming from a family whose idea of camping was to load up the back of the station wagon with the entire house contents, including the canary, I'm still yet to understand the basic principles. My childhood holidays were a bit limited as dad had to do the return trip home every day to feed the cat.

Perhaps then, a more sustainable and peaceful world would be more likely if there was a more feminine approach to power, decision-making and our interactions with the planet and with each other. The creators of Homeward Bound believe so and they are doing something about it.

FIRST organises robotics competitions for 10 to 18-year-olds. In Australia the competitions are run out of Macquarie University in Sydney. Harry asked his father if he could get involved. Now, three years later, Harry is a founding member of Metal Minds Robotics and mentors other young people learning about robotics.

  • Issue 83 - From Hoboken to Queenstown
    • Abstract: Newport, Tony
      Down here at the bottom of the world, the westerly winds storm across the great Southern Ocean from San Antonio in Argentina, by-passing the African continent, and smash into the mineral-rich west coast of our heart-shaped island of Tasmania.

  • Issue 83 - Nuna reflections
    • Abstract: Spinks, Bert
      She wakes as the light is muddling its way into the day; she wakes on that blurred edge of night and day, where the two forces intermingle, where the eye's rods and cones grapple with light waves to find any colour amid the silver gull's dusty grey. The sea crashes listlessly onto the shore, as it has all night, not needing an audience, but seeming sluggish from the work and perhaps needing to rest after all.

  • Issue 83 - Portfolio: Estuary moments
    • Abstract: Tayler, Pen
      Living in Lindisfarne, I have the River Derwent estuary on my doorstep. Given our variable weather, every day is different. I see kayaks being paddled along the river on still mornings, yachts filling their sails with afternoon breezes, and ships making their way down the estuary to the zinc works. It is a constant array of shapes and movement.

  • Issue 83 - Conserving Kirkpatrick
    • Abstract: Dryburgh, James; Hay, Pete
      In October, 2016, a full-day symposium was held at the University of Tasmania. It was partly to celebrate the achievements of Distinguished Professor Jamie Kirkpatrick, and partly to celebrate his 70 years on the planet, more than 40 of them spent working for the University of Tasmania in a number of roles, including Head of School.

  • Issue 83 - Tassie's whale boys
    • Abstract: Stoddart, Michael
      December 8, 1923, saw the first Antarctic blue whale killed in the Ross Sea by the steam whale catcher Star II. It was towed to the factory ship Sir James Clark Ross and rendered down into 80 barrels of oil. It was the first of many thousands in a slaughter that brought the world's blue whale population to its knees.

  • Issue 83 - Sips and nibbles I
    • Abstract: Champion, Chris
      Understanding food and wine is a diplomatic passport to life. A demonstration of epicurean knowledge and discernment, as long as it is done with modesty, will always be appreciated.

      Our Sips and Nibbles section offers a dash, a dab and a driblet of facts and occasional figures about food and wine, and the people who create them. It will never be dull. It will be at times dense but interesting, at others light but fun. It will enhance any conversation. It will be like a fine dinner.

  • Issue 83 - Up to the cask
    • Abstract: Dryburgh, James
      Adam Bone was a stonemason in 1997 when he began learning the art, at a small cooperage in the Huon Valley, of making the perfect cask. Eventually, he decided to buy the business, figuring if he could complete two or three casks a week he would be able to sustain himself.

  • Issue 83 - Artists and artisans: Darker in the deep
    • Abstract: Kerr, Mike
      The watercolourist is on the beach at Douglas River, an expanse of sky, sea and sand that captured him some 30 years ago. It is one of perhaps a dozen places to which Murphy is drawn, and whose mood and colour, light and shade he in turn has caught in his paintings.

  • Issue 83 - The keeper
    • Abstract: McCauley, Amina
      For Kailash Healy, down time means building bike jumps in the backyard, cutting firewood from fallen branches and helping his mum grow vegetables. That, however, is only when he is not taking care of his bees and selling his 400 kilograms of leatherwood honey at Hobart's Farm Gate Market.

  • Issue 83 - Sense of achievement
    • Abstract: Roberts, Annwen
      She was a shadow, pushed away to the back of the room. She could feel the belonging, the mass of bodies in front of her all joined, their minds vastly different but working together. Inextricably connected, until the threads that kept their minds intertwined were severed by the tides of fate. She felt the belonging, but she was outside of it. She was not excluded or disliked. She was simply not a part of it...
