The last memory has passed.

To anyone who has read one – thank you.

If you enjoyed it – that makes me feel as I did in #139.

A special mention:

Bill Joyner’s box of memories & memorabilia, enthusiasm, insight – valuable, valued.

Now, Bill, … the River project?*

A collaboration?

“I’ll let you into my memories, if I can be in yours.” (Apologies Bob Dylan)


* We (Bill & I) have discussed the idea of a project aimed at giving expression to the vital role The Nepean River has had in shaping us as individuals and communities – if you have any thoughts on this, I’d love to hear them.

The final words …

I hope your 2013 is filled with
events, experiences, adventures that become
wonderful memories in future years.

Happy New Year!

Man thinks ’cause he rules the earth, he can do with it as he please
And if things don’t change soon, he will.
Oh! Man has invented his doom
First step was touching the moon.

Now, there’s a woman on my block
Who just sits there as the night grows still
She says, who’s gonna take away his license to kill.

And here is Elvis Costello & The Imposters and their rendition in a celebration of Bob’s 70th birthday.
