I‘m in catch up mode on my blog feed reading.  Some wonderful work has been keeping me away from them.  Here’s what struck chords today.

Tom Fishburne on the not-so useful role of the devil’s advocate.  Resistance in disguise.

Katie Chatfield gets shouty about the value of play.

Julian Dobson notices that taking care with exteriors and spaces makes a difference to our cities and their public spaces.

We set out this evening to take advantage of a break in the rain and explore the city during the Vivid Sydney festival.  There’s a celebration of Lachlan Macquarie and his wife Elizabeth in Macquarie Street (where else).  It is 200 years since he arrived in Sydney and, among other achievements, implemented a visionary public works program across New South Wales.

The Conservatorium of Music building (originally stables and servant quarters to Government House) serves as one of the palettes for the beautifully executed Macquarie Visions light show.  Here are some snaps of the Conservatorium building taken from my mobile phone.

St Mary’s Cathedral, Hyde Park Barracks, the Mitchell Library and the Old Mint are also on display.  After dark, Macquarie Visions is on until 20 June.
