A Flashback

ShineI have been foraging around through archived material at Soul Food and stumbled upon a magazine I created in 2004. This Anthology was compiled to showcase student writing at LaTrobe Secondary College and some of the Primary Schools that surrounded it.

LaTrobe Secondary College closed a number of years ago but this copy remains, a reminder of something that was produced in its final years. It also records work undertaken with the feeder primary schools in the area.

Looking back I am in awe of what we achieved, but perhaps more in awe of the fact that long lost links can still be traced, as can the crazy interview I did as a part of  the highly successful Pop Art Fiction project.

  1. Love your creative foraging into soul food archives bringing material into the light.

    A quote in email this morning:

    “You never go as far as when you don’t know where you are going.”

  2. Well Lordy Lord…I had TOTALLY forgotten that your mannequin project at La Trobe was the inspiration for the mannequins that I have worked on in my professional art career! I remember the creative projects you worked on there over the years and always thought how lucky those students were to have you.

    I was up early this morning, by 6am, which is a miracle for me! I spent the day writing, musing about possible directions for this next year. Go ahead and laugh. There’s just no knowing! But it was umpteen hours of stream-of-consciousness writing that exhausted me until I fell into bed again for a long winter nap around 4pm. All I managed to figure out for sure is what I don’t want. Which, I suppose, is a lot. And so I hope you’re right: “You never go so far as when you don’t know where you are going.”

    I’m glad to have taken this trip down memory lane to La Trobe. It was a wonderful place. You made it so.
