Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

The nature of the beast

Yesterday I was at home with the windows closed, even the birds were taking refuge under the covered roof. I was wearing my thermal track suit bottoms and fleece and had my British Airways socks on with my flip flops. A right Chav, my boys would say, but the weather called for it. Winds  shook the biggest of trees, rain lashing down for 48 hrs, four people lost their lives being swept away in a flash flood. I live here and I almost incredulous at the nature of the beast. 

Today the sun is out, some pretty white clouds dot the sky and as I cleaned the garden of broken branches and leaves a kookaburra came and sat nearby and I saw the water dragon sunning itself on the branch of the Frangipani tree. Even moments like these need to remembered as their unremarkable nature take on a different tone after the cataclysm of yesterday's storm. So I am off to celebrate the birth of Buddha with Brisbane buddhists.
