I'm back!

Well dear reader...I'm back.  Back amongst my trees and birds in Warrandyte.  What a welcome they have given me.  The minute I arrived home- my kookas set up a reassuring laugh.  The trees are dripping in lush green moist growth and the window conversion at Isiiad (completed while I was away) now affords me an uninterrupted view of my heavenly place.

New York with it's excitement and blizzards is still with me...I have a list of blogs as long as my arm to chirn out from that extraordinary city.  So over the next couple of weeks I intend to work through the backlog of photos and notes to complete the experience and bring you every ounce of what New York offered me.

In addition, I intend to introduce you to a guest photographer with a little project that has been on the back burner for some years now.  I'm going to keep you guessing on that one.  I also made some contacts with young Melbourne designers while in New York who have agreed to participate in a blog spot on isiiad.  The energy and creativilty of young people is fresh and inspiring, so full of rich possibility. So sit back and enjoy the ride with me...

By the way, if you are keeping an eye on The Sartorialist you will see that he has posted a documentary about his blog.  If you haven't seen it I recommend it to you...not surprisingly he looks worthy of a photo himself- handsome and impeccably dressed man that he is.
