I love a sunburnt country

from w
It's Saturday afternoon and with eight of the household away watching Eparama play rugby, I have a quiet household to think about 'my' sunburnt country and listen to youtube Mozart (who occasionally gets it right) - with 'Rest gently' from Zaide or Ruhe Sanft mein holden Leben as it is in German. There are several versions on youtube and I think it is a perfect song for a funeral, not dark, not mournful, but liberating.

Oh, and they are back. I can hear voices and a noise from a computer in another room. There'll be about ten or eleven of us by evening to drink kava and yarn. Our household has seriously altered in the past three or four months with an expanding three-generational family here. It's nice and we are a strong family, but it does get chaotic at times.

Hi,
I just came across your blog on a search about Barry Bell. I spent a fair amount of time with him in the bush north of Weipa as well as being his guest in Geelong.
He has a big role in a book I wrote entitled "Under the Spider Tree" about me Aussie mates and our adventures. He is the lead in a new one where we remember him in chp one. I will be talking to a Rotary here in Seattle about him soon. Would love to communicate with you..love your blog. Mine is http://letkidsbekidsinc.blogspot.com and my email is mbarrettmiller@yahoo.com

Hello,
I presume you know that Barry Bell died last year. He was a man with a big heart and a good friend to so many.
