Happiness as Anarchy #71: Sleeping like a log

There’s something very satisfying about waking up feeling like you’ve slept well. I never get enough hours, but I love it when I’m physically exhausted and wake up in exactly the same position as I went to sleep in. As though I fell asleep the instant my head hit the pillow and I didn’t budge until morning.

I’m not sure how well I would sleep in the quasi-public surroundings that the queens at Versailles were subjected to. All those seats were for people to watch her majesty get dressed every morning.

Happiness as Anarchy #54: Looking Up

There’s a certain similarity in cities these days – the same chain stores with the plate glass windows and decor. Look up above street level, though, and the character of a city is on show. Hobart is no exception. Street level in the CBD is reasonably generic, but one storey up is a different vision. It’s a pretty city with some gorgeous architecture that tells its history in the lines, colours, bricks and mortar.
