Gallery visits

Status: Underway

As for 101 Books, I'll track this goal in a post. Again, I've increased the target from the last 101 in 1001. Last time I just scraped to 50, but it was a half-time goal, so only had ~500 days. That said, a lot of that time was spent in Manhattan or travelling, so.... Anyway, I'm all for being a tourist at home, so I'll give 101 gallery visits a go in this next 1001 days. Most of which is likely to be spent in Sydney.
  1. Art&About - Hyde Park display of Sydney photographs
  2. MCA - Primavera exhibition
  3. Surry Hills Library Street Scenes
  4. ACP - Walkley Awards
  5. Sculpture by the Sea
  6. Philip Bacon Gallery 
  7. GOMA - Valentino Retrospective. Absolutely amazing.
  8. National Art School - Reportage exhibition
  9. Sculpture by the Sea take 2
  10. Crown St gallery 1
  11. Crown St gallery 2
  12. Glenmore Rd gallery 1
  13. Glenmore Rd gallery 2
  14. Anatomy museum - Royal North Shore

Project 365

Status: Underway

I've been 'practising' this one for a week or two now, trying to get back into the habit of a photo a day. Last night I took this one and I think I like it enough that I don't want it to miss out on the project, so I'm calling it - Day 1 (2 now) of Project365 2.0. (I'll tire of the 2.0 thing soon. Patience)

101 Books

I hereby begin my second list of books. Slightly more ambitious than in the List 1.0. Then I targeted 50 and achieved 84. This time around I'm a regular person, not a banker, so 101 sounds like a good number.

1 down, 100 to go. I'll use this post to keep track.
  1. Tender is the Night
  2. The Witches of Eastwick
  3. Madame Bovary
  4. Lolita
  5. Washington Square
  6. Minding Frankie
  7. The Twenty-Seventh City (wip)
  8. And It Is True
  9. 36 Arguments for the Existence of God - a work of fiction (wip)
  10. How it Feels
  11. Brooklyn
  12. Room
  13. Freedom
  14. Major Pettigrew's Last Stand
  15. The Beautiful and the Damned (wip)

Day Zero

It's Day Zero (almost) of my second attempt at 101 goals in 1001 days. I've kicked it off a little sooner than planned: Discovering that I was 1001 days from turning 30, I couldn't ignore the tidiness of the timing.

The List is about halfway there. Finishing it will be the first item ticked off. It's taking a little while, because along with finding tasks that are stretching, achievable, measurable and things I want to do, I also want most of them to be interesting to blog about. Polishing all my polishable shoes just doesn't pull the readership these days.

More soon.
