I like public transport. I am that person that sits quite contentedly, swinging my feet as the tram rumbles along the tracks through suburban Melbourne. I like the people on trams. I like the occasional odd one who tries to sell you the half-fried wall heater they got "from a friend" or the loud one who really wants everyone to know "That she is, like, such a mole..." You see I like the ramblings you hear when travelling around Melbourne. And I like to call them Tramblings.
But then I had a thought, why not capture some of the lines I overhear and publish them for others? The odd, isolated and sometimes intriguing comments could be used as seeds for writing and thinking with students - and adults! They could also be a great writing exercise in prediction, creative thinking and contextual connectedness. So enjoy!
