Here are some more Redfern pics from my archive. Variously 2008-2012.
I could share so many more! Here to finish is 2021 from YouTube. Much is still familiar to me.
The still fronting that 2021 video shows a trendy coffee shop on the corner of Pitt and Redfern Streets. Back in 1990 this was a Lebanese corner shop — I bought cigarettes there on occasions. Next to it is the yellow sign of Wilsons, inner Sydney’s oldest Lebanese restaurant. Their food was good. Still is no doubt.
We were in a comparatively happy space last September, pre-Delta Variant! I was still shopping freely and going to the clubs three times a week. On the blog I reposted a lot of pictures — go there to see them all. Today I select a few just as a nice break from the past few rather heavy posts.
#Strongwomen. "I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it." Kristin Armstrong
