Sashin’s House at the Top of the World


Bob Geldof ended his 1992 album The Happy Club with a spoken word song called The House at the Top of the World. My parents frequently played it.

Today we sat at the top of the world, this time at my friend Sashin’s place on the outskirts of Sydney, with Valty and Kiri. The sky and landscape both seemed to go on forever from this hill.

View into the distance showing the new Sydney Metro line with endless trees and sky.

Sashin also has an excellent website you should check out.
