on boxing day Greg and Sally Malcher 
took me to an event in the biggest bowl in Australia

the MCG

a huge bowl, the inside lined 
with cricket enthusiasts
which filled the bowl with 
mexican waves
love and hate
lots and lots of noise
moment of intense silence
followed by 
wave after wave of human response
to the activities on the field

the field
where australians were seeking revenge
for years of loss of honour
as a result of loss of matches

they got their revenge
with their fourth win in Melbourne

my interest was with the bowl and the sound traveling around it
the emotions of it all

a huge singing bowl

"If everything is coming your way, you are in the wrong lane"
