A sunny almost-winter afternoon. I’m taking Nora the dog for a walk. We’re heading down to the bush at the end of our road. Would you like to come too?
I have to warn you: I’m a fast walker. And how do you feel about running up a steep hill? Will you dash across a playing field with me? Sound a bit energetic? We’ll be able to catch our breaths when I stop to chat.
I want to tell you about bushfires, koalas, and lyre birds. Perhaps I’ll ponder why anyone would choose to take up a challenge that hurts. I’d like to show you some banksias. I’ll also show you the wall and freshly painted doors which featured in my daughter Imogen’s latest music video. Will I stand in front of them? Will I sing? Hopefully not! If you come with me, you’ll receive an invitation. Will you want to accept it? Probably not!
So are you ready to go for a walk with me and my behind-the-camera girl Sophie? Would you like to see where we run and where Sophie and I stroll as we chat while walking the dog? Put on some flat and comfortable shoes. And let’s go!

I made this video for Alissa because she wanted to see our bush. If you’d like me to show you a place or talk about something in particular, please ask. I love receiving suggestions for blog posts, podcasts, and videos!
