As we head towards 2050 and beyond, our society will be faced with many challenges.

Climate change, food security, equality, justice, health and welfare challenges are but a few. Here I share my thoughts and observations about many current and continuing issues. I would be pleased to receive your feedback and I invite you to join me in the conversations.

This evening as the curtain drew to a close on 2015 I sat quietly on my beach.  I paused to look back across the year as I beheld the setting sun.  I also endeavoured to train my vision on what 2016 may bring.

I concluded that the year about to expire presented me with both turbulence and calm.  I wished that there had been a bias towards calm.  I appreciate that calm is both a state of mind and a disposition; and from the perspective of my sanctuary, calm is when the wind is below 5 knots, the sea mirror-like and inviting.

As I took my seat in the Keith Michell Theatre in Port Pirie to be part of John Pirie Secondary School’s prize presentation evening it felt like it was only yesterday I was sitting down to the presentation of awards for the 2014 cohort of JPSS students.  The year, academic or otherwise has flown.  Throughout the night there was a sense of déjà vu. 

Just before the evening’s proceedings commenced we were asked to please stand to welcome the official party which included His Excellency The Honourable Hieu Van Le AO, the Governor of South Australia and his wife Lan Le.

10,000 miles from Paris I walk in the shallows on a white sandy beach, the sun at my back, the breeze on my cheeks and the warm waters of Spencer Gulf lapping at my ankles. 

10,000 miles from Paris small children beachcomb with brightly coloured buckets in hand and giggle as they watch small sea creatures scurry for safety.
