More Bubbles Please!

I’m so thrilled that my little granddaughter, Eloise, loves music as I do. She loves The Wiggles and Dan Zanes. As a result the two of us are collaborating on some children’s songs of our own.

Here’s an example. On a couple of visits to the Blue Mountains Eloise has had some fun times blowing soap bubbles.

MORE BUBBLES PLEASE

More bubbles, please
Blow them, blow
Did you see that one?
Look at it go.

I’ll try to catch it
Blow, blow again
Small ones and big ones
Falling like rain.

Some float away
Others disappear
Some land on my head
Or pop in my ear.

More bubbles please
Just one more time
I’ll catch a tiny one
And make it mine.

Mr Stuart’s Track

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

I have just finished reading John Bailey’s recent biography of the explorer John McDouall Stuart, Mr Stuart’s Track. It is a fascinating read about the man some, including Bailey himself, consider Australia’s greatest explorer. Throughout the book, Bailey skilfully recreates various hypothetical situations, based on recorded fact but laced with intuitive reasoning, to flesh out Stuart and some of his contemporaries. It makes very interesting reading and provides much food for thought.?

You can read more in an article I wrote about it.
