The South Perth Foreshore

Zeitgeisters,

I’m walking these days. Apparently it’s healthy or something. Because I live in South Perth, I mostly walk along the Swan River foreshore. I’m enjoying it now. At first it was slightly humiliating being overtaken by octagenarian Chinese men who fought alongside Chiang Kai-Shek. But it’s not about pride, is it?

I saw this sign as I tore through Sir James Mitchell Park at 2 ks per hour. I’m not a big fan of graffiti, but this entertained me. Polemical? Satirical? It says a lot more than a mere tag – and I appreciate anyone who can get my brain ticking over.


If you can’t quite read it: “Once you’ve been with woman there is no going back!”
