Very Byron? Very Mullum!

Well as everyone knows in Byron… it’s obligatory to read  The Echo classifieds each week. Why? Well we just do! It’s the place to find out who’s in town to offer some new fandangle healing help, who’s just left (in the heavenly fashion) for greener pastures, who’s offering a good deal in rental (sadly this is rare these days), and who’s offering a job that is marginally more interesting  than the usual retail, hospitality and bookkeeping options! So it was with great delight to find this ad in the ‘positions vacant’ section for a Market Parking Manager at the Mullumbimby Farmers Markets. The thing is… I’m just not sure why they need someone to have knowledge of recycling, composting and worm farms whilst directing traffic???? But hey… it is Mullm after all.


Very Boho Very Byron

This is Tzivonit… ‘Ziv’ for short which means ‘bright light’ in Hebrew . Born in Melbourne, Ziv has been here since she was one year old. When asked ‘what do you love about Byron? ‘ … she says “everything” . Ziv has left Byron twice to try the delights of foreign shores in London and Canada but says she always comes back. Now having met the ‘love of her life’ here who says he never wants to leave, it seems Ziv is a Byron keeper. I spied Ziv walking down Jonson Street eating her Red Ginger yum cha and just loved her look. Wearing a retro cut off dress (literally) that her friend gave her, complete with gold sash cord for a belt and the blue lace headband is from Bohotopia; but the sweet moonstone around her neck she picked up in London. She certainly appeared as a bright light in my world of people watching on a Friday afternoon in Byron.
