Interview with The Buckleys

Sitting with The Buckleys, you know they are siblings. They have this natural ease and fluidity with each other. A lack of self-consciousness. A lot of love, but you also know they keep each other in check.

S Sorrensen’s Here & Now: Waiting for the sun

Outside, the rain comes down in symphonic crescendi on the tin roof of my shack in the clouds. Inside, it's Granddaughter's turn. We're playing musical round robin. She, her father, her grandmother and me are taking turns playing a favourite song, in whatever medium you want.

S Sorrensen’s Here & Now: Paw paw poetry

My garden. Thursday, sunset. I gazed out upon a tree, It grows where I spat the seed, As I ate the fruit, and peed.

Here & Now 187: Merry shopping

Lismore. Tuesday, 4.35pm: I've made a Christmas resolution. Yes, I know, you're supposed to make a resolution on New Year's Eve, but I gave that up years ago. It was always the same.

Here & Now #185 Just a stage

The gig is going well. When stand-up is going well it feels great. And I'm not just talking about for the audience; I'm talking about for me.

Here & Now 177 Standing together

The little girl, ceremonial paint on her face, feathers around her arms, looks up at the people beside her to see what they're doing – and flaps her arms like a bird flying. She is flying energetically when, on a cue from the didgeridoo, the other dancers stop flapping, form a circle and, arms outstretched, glide on the wind.

S Sorrensen’s Here & Now: An anxious world

The world is vibrating at an ever-increasing pitch. The vibration is now audible. Can you hear it? I can. It whines in my ear as I stroll the foreshore at Pelican Waters.

S Sorrensen’s Here & Now: Something fishy

Look, these are strange times. There are ominous signs. The goldfish died this week. Actually, I don't even know if they died. They just disappeared. Four of them. One day after I put them in the garden pond, there was no trace of them. It was like Twilight Zone.

S Sorrensen’s Here & Now: Fair go, mate

Societies have always been built on beliefs. The Maoris believed in tattoos and tapu. Aboriginal people believed in maintaining country. Egyptians believed in Isis (the goddess, not the thug club). The British believed in their superior civilisation…

Here & Now #168: Muscle & lipstick

When I was a kid, tough men were wiry blokes with bodies shaped by hard physical work. Under blue singlets were stomachs as hard as a droughted paddock, flat as a factory floor. They weren't big men, but they were tough, with weathered skin and dirty nails.

Here & Now #164 All hail the hall

I like the old country halls. These boxy stupas from times past honour community, when community was what you called a group of people living and working together, not a retirement village or a social media movement.
