Two years of working with community on this voluntary project of love, culminates this weekend with the 30th anniversary of First Peoples' entries in the Mardi Gras Parade and the shared history of as many years of participation as the parade is of age - 40. Here's to the history makers of tomorrow, kicking off with this Saturday night's First Nations float, Revolution! (3/3/18) http://www.timbishop.com.au/interactive-history-first-peop…/

I'd been thinking over the last few years about the need to have the history written down of First Peoples' entries in the Sydney Mardi Gras Parade, before we older community people forget the history that we do know and have lived - or are gone ourselves along with our memories and the yarns of oth...

Last night marked the third birthday of my website,
Tim Bishop - songs and stories. Launched into the public domain in the moment of the winter solstice, Jun 21, 2014 at 8:50 pm, around a backyard fire. This weekend I hope to mark the occasion with a congratulatory fire. It's been a great journey so far, getting the work up on the site and sharing with audiences worldwide. Meanwhile here's a little track to commemorate the occassion with you. One of my favourites. http://www.timbishop.com.au/i-send-off-the-day/

I wrote this short piece of prose one night, sitting with my thoughts in the kitchen, staring at a little…

My first post for the year from my website. Written almost a year ago but six years in the waiting. A short story for your summer reading. 15 minutes of your time, best read in one sitting. A sad but beautiful (dog) story that goes beyond the expected.

I know I write sad stories a lot of the time. But they’re the ones that linger in the time that it takes for them not to be so sad anymore.

A tragic childhood story about a spot on the Murray where the river flows quickly. Too quickly for some.

A message from my website: I haven't posted here for a while because there hasn't been anything to p(b)ost about! But there are stories in the writing and a couple of songs to start recording soon. They'll be up there when they're done. I'm also facing myself with the question, "To blog or not?" Yet to be decided. All the best to you all. www.timbishop.com.au Comments always welcome!

A new post to my site, 'The old man, the boy and the big river.' A story for young ones about rivers, where they come from and the stories they hold. I hope you enjoy. Responses very welcome. http://www.timbishop.com.au/the-old-man-the-boy-and-the-bi…/

The old man and the boy were sitting by the big river. They both sat there very quietly, looking at the water as it passed them by.

We called him Jack Mullavey. I'd always wanted a car the same as my sixth grade teacher's car, a pale green 1964 Holden EH station wagon.

"What have I been up to?" facebook asks. A: Building a website from the starting point of no idea of how to do so, collecting my life together for the last six months and depriving myself of much sleep. All well worth it. Welcome everybody to Tim Bishop - songs and stories. I look forward to sharing more with you.
