My Secret Story

"The words coming across the screen are very effective. I think the voiceover is also very clear, and helps to convey the story well. It's a very sad story, and I think the themes are so everyday - it really can happen to anyone. Scary. I too,…"

Profile Information

What would you most like to change about the world that you live in?
I would like to be change in the world. I would like my world to be full of flowers and creativity and harmony. I would like my world to be a dynamic place of interconnections. I would like to grow food that is for the spirit as much as for the mind and the body. I would like the world to be safe for everyone.
What can you do to make it happen?
I can be me and do my work and plant seeds and start small processes of transformation. I can sing and write and paint. I can teach and I can talk to people. I can try to live by example. I can be aware of what others are doing and support them in their endeavours.
When you're not busy changing the world, what do you do for fun?
garden, write, read, cook, paint, collage, sew, build, knit, draw, sing...

Those My Family Stickers... ugh

Posted on September 2, 2011 at 20:56 1 Comment

So we were standing outside the newsagent at our local shopping centre this afternoon, looking once again at the board that shows all the possible figures for the - so trendy - My Family Stickers [http://www.mystickfigurefamily.com ] like you see on the backs of cars all over the place. I've been coveting a set of these stickers for some time. Bronwen tore me away from the board in the end, claiming they made her feel slightly…

working on a digital story

Posted on July 14, 2011 at 21:27 1 Comment

Hi RFT Clanspeople,

Sonja asked me to jot down a few thoughts about what it's like to be working on a digital story. I've made several now, and they fall into 2 categories - completely personal stories that I make about my son, and the more politically motivated, serious sort. 

 

I use Windows Live MovieMaker and I am still learning what it's capable of. So technically, it's quite fun and frustrating at the same time. The more stories I make, the more ambitious I become.…

IDAHO rally aftermath

Posted on May 14, 2011 at 23:39 2 Comments

Hi All,

Just to let you know I made a quick digidoc of my experience of today's IDAHO rally in Adelaide. Would be great to hear  and view others' perspectives and experiences, too. You can see it on the Rainbow Family Tree's facebook page.

 

Or maybe here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/video/video.php?v=10150180293672653&comments 

Cheers,

Melina

In December I started a Balcony Herb and Vegetable Garden which I am am planning on using to improve my diet and increase the amount of fruit and vegetables that I eat. I am also trying to organise a group to meet up at the Adelaide central market on a regular basis to do a weekly  shop in bulk and then share the produce amongst the group.  In 2012 I plan on reducing my meat intake and becoming more conscious of my impact on the planet.

Hi Melina, I wonder who that is.

Grr... cross! It seems that the plan RFT is currently on no longer allows for direct uploads... and the next level up is $500 p/year instead of $200. So it looks like best alternatives would be suggesting people upload to a youtube (free but they license rights to do anything they like with the video) or vimeo channel (retaining copyright and control over privacy settings but costs) then embed in the RFT site... I'll investigate a bit more but it might be a good subject to throw open for community discussion!

 

Cheers, S

Mmm... re video upload... I thought it used to be a simple 'add video' button but I see that now allows only for embeds of videos already loaded on other platforms... I'll have to get back to you... grrr...

Sorry Melina, I did get your e:mail... I'm struggling to keep head above water with sick kids and RFT deadlines so couldn't commit myself (though it sounds both fun and interesting!) I'll ask Sandra, a good friend of mine if she's interested... would it be OK to get her to call you on the mobile to have a chat about the details?

Hey Melina! Long time, no see! Glad to have you here and I hope you'll think about making a story sometime ; )
