But I am over it and I am not going to do it again. God knows what this will look like.
It was a gloomy damp day when R, Sister, Bone Doctor, Little Jo and myself took a walk in Fawkner Park. Little Jo half heartedly tried to kick through piles of leaves, but they were just too wet. Eventually we arrived at the rather good kiddies playground where Little Jo joined Harriet and Travis McNaughton-Smythe and Dinesh and Saneeta Singh on the play equipment. Even though all appeared to be about five years old, they still weren't seeing colour or class. None took notice of what each wore, Harriet and Travis in Burberry, Dinesh and Saneeta in their Target branded clothes and Little Jo in her op shop 2 for $1 garments. That Harriet and Travis lived in a very expensive two storey terrace house, Dinesh and Saneeta in a rented flat and Little Jo in the bush mattered nowt to them.
A few years ago, City of Melbourne drew up a master plan for the park and I made a bit of a contribution to the plan. Most of what I suggested was pretty obvious and I think all the work has now been completed. What I don't remember being on the plan is this area we came across in the middle of the park, some distance from the path we normally walk.
I am not sure of the purpose of this but Little Jo decided it was a stage and gave a performance.
See the bits of round metal in the boards? If you step on them, they ring a bell that sounds rather like a tram bell.
