You already know I’m completely biased in Varuna’s favour, I won’t deny it, and this is a really beautiful way to offer you a glimpse of the environment both in and around the house itself, and of course out and about ogling those spectacular Blue Mountains. Watching it this morning, I became quite choked. Take a look and you’ll see what I mean – his impressions are at once deeply familiar and gorgeously particular – who knew that dust could look this good?
As I said to Shuckin’, I’d hate to see my own attempt at this sort of thing – I fear it would mainly consist of lots of swearing off-camera and wild shots oscillating between my feet, a corner of the roof and a worn patch of carpet. I much prefer Mark Welker’s version, and I’m sure you’ll love it too.
According to his blog bio, Mark is a Perth writer who’s just relocated to Melbourne to develop his craft. Yes, he’s writing a novel. In other words, he’s living the dream, and we love that sort of thing around here, don’t we?! So good luck to him as he properly commences his own all-in grand adventure, and a very warm welcome to the Varuna family I personally hold so dear.
