quote o’ the day: the Caveman of Bondi on personal freedom

“If you remove yourself to the extremity of land’s end and that’s still not good enough, and people come down and deliberately stir you up and tell you that you are taking up too much room in Australia, where would you go? What would you do? Anytime Australia, or the Establishment, is so particularly threatened by one man living quietly, then we are not the same Australia we thought we were.”

Jhyimy “Two Hats” Mhiyles,
the Caveman of Bondi

  1. yeah, he’s an institution and I’m glad he gets to stay on.

    every year sydney has a Sculptures by the Sea exhibition whereby 60 or so sculptures and installations are erected on the Bondi to Bronte cliffwalk.

    viewers not aware of old “Two Hats” thought his living quarters were part of the exhibition :-)
