During the 1970s, I was young. Unsatisfied with youth alone, I was also smaller than my present dimensions suggest. When one is small, regardless of age, distances seem more vast and common things seem more big. Everyday things: wardrobes, most objects manufactured by Fisher & Paykel, the packaging they are shipped in…just massive.
Mr Fotodudenz woke me up one day and threatened to drag me to Point Cook. “What’s the point of that?” I asked. He got it, he just didn’t laugh.
