The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. No price is too high for the privilege of owning yourself. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

A treat, an absolute treat …

You missed a wonderful evening on Friday night as Phillip Adams was in conversation with Booker winner Richard Flanagan. But if you want to listen, tune into Radio National at 10pm on Monday night (repeated 4pm Tuesday).

    I was just reminiscing on my time reading Goulds Book of Fish. I was into my fourth year of project implementation and drew a detailed pencil sketch of a sea dragon as despite not knowing the conclusion. I finished the sketch and left the project team. I guess we both got there.

    Well, I’ll support the Editor’s observation! The conversation between Adams and Flanagan was a treat. However, the comedic satire of “Gould’s Book of Fish” still escapes me. A reflection on a convict’s descent into insanity surrounded by multiple venereal personalities as a companion novel of “For the Term of his Natural Life” was my take. Perhaps it was just a reflection of where I was at the time? As Flanagan noted, art is in the personal interpretation. Anyway, it’s fair to celebrate one of the most respected Tasmanian and Australian artists of our time.
