Drop 9 at Flinders St Station

Drop 9 at Flinders St Station

Yesterday afternoon I headed into Flinders St Station for Drop 9. At first I had thought I’d do it at peak hour, so that people coming home from working a long week might find a beautiful thing, but I worried that there’d be too many people, so I decided to go in around 2:30 instead. Once I got there, I was really glad I had, as there were heaps of people around at that time, I couldn’t imagine just how many people would have been there 5pm on a Friday night!

It was quite tricky to drop the Journals with so many people around, I wanted to do it unobserved but that was much harder here than anywhere else I’ve done this!

Today, flying in via post, was Journal 3. It’s Inscriber is currently off on an art filled adventure and had taken their Journal with them. To post it back, they had to make a special trip via boat to the post office! It arrived safe and sound and is now in the pile of Journals waiting to go out…

Then, around noon, I went in to RRR to chat to alicia sometimes about Sharing Ink on her radio show Aural Text. While there I met with an Inscriber to return their Journal. These two things were in no way related! :)

Last week was also a week for dropping Journals off to Inscriber’s places of work and, in this instance, posting a Journal to their homes. Although this Inscriber lives in Melbourne, schedule clashes meant that we couldn’t find a time to meet up. So instead, Journal 20 went winging it’s way to this Inscriber via Australia Post.

There were three other Inscribers who’s schedules were such that we couldn’t manage a time to meet up, so instead I also did a little delivery around town to their various offices. Journal 16 and Journal 25 Inscribers both work in the same office, so I dropped them off at the lady at the front desk. She seemed a little curious about what was in the bags (she peered intently into both and pulled out one of the Journals before placing them on her desk) but she happily accepted them and sent emails off to the Inscribers to let them know their Journals were waiting for them.

Lastly, I dropped into a tiny two-story building hidden down a little alley to leave Journal 27 on this Inscriber’s office door. There was no one around, but while I was there, the Inscriber’s office buddy appeared and offered to unlock the office door so I could put it on their desk. I felt much better with that offer! So between the papers, pens and computer equipment, I left Journal 27 and a little note in a little white bag for them.

Wednesday and Thursday were both half days at Visible Studios, which resulted in 3 Journals each time.
