For the duration of this notice, unless otherwise stated, all images have been trawled from my photographic archives... 2020 was not my most prolific camera year, so have some catching up to do!!!

TAKE SEVENTY h

Welcome to "V" of the alphabetised month!  If you have not seen or heard of the AtoZ challenge, click the logo on the sidebar to find out more! This blog is not about words, but about pictures telling the story. That said, for this month, there will be a few more than usual typed items and occasionally more than the usual one image per post. 

As it's my birthday, am going to indulge in sharing one of the best Volunteer gigs ever... the Star Trek touring exhibition!!! The Sydney Powerhouse Museum hosted it and put the call out for 'tour guides' who were prepared to dress up. We had to produce our own costumes and put in a request for a position with good reasons why we should get the posting. This, after all, was a prestigious position! I was charmed by the use of the term Vedik for characters in Deep Space 9. There were a couple of writers on the show of Indian heritage and of course, the Hindu life is based upon the Vedas, the four books of life and the wisdom structure/philosophy found in there is Advaita Vedanta - of which I am now a teacher and practitioner. So here I am in my Vedik costume with a host of other characters who won a position on the team. It really is a fondly remembered nine months!

  1. Perhaps I am one of the few people in the world who have never seen an episode of Star Trek, so this is a little lost on me!

  9. Happy Birthday!!! Our Dad is a bigtime Trekkie, but not Mom. She tolerates all the old episodes Dad watches, but she just really tunes it out:)
