my son's band performed on the main stage at the ozasia festival today and it was great. i know i am biased but they really were fantastic. the crowd loved them and they gave us an encore. it's the first time i've heard the new lineup of nine, including a trumpet player, and i was really glad i went. the rain held off until i was on my way home so that was good. there were so many food stalls and i had a really strong vietnamese iced coffee so sleep may elude me tonight. lol. i was lucky enough to come across a stall featuring a japanese calligrapher from melbourne who was wonderful. the paper he was using was purchased by his father in japan 40 years ago. that's special. i had a go and my efforts were awful. i used to be really good at calligraphy including hebrew and chinese believe it or not. but. as they say, use it or lose it, and i have indeed lost it.
