Attending to other business

It’s quiet on the blog-front. This is because my mother died suddenly last week. We flew home to Australia the same day and are now dealing with this death, just a year after my dad died. Grief, exhaustion and a fair bit of chaos are the dominant themes.

  5. Sorry to hear Phil, hope that things get better soon.

    Caught your talk tonight on Afghanistan at the Greens/Ludlam event (I was staffing the RRAN (Refugee Rights Action Network) stall). Was awesome to hear your perspective on the issues discussed and you portrayed it in quite a beautiful and comprehensive manner. I walked away with what I felt as a much clearer understanding of the issues. Also really liked your perspective on the aid involvement in the country, answered quite a bit. Cheers, Sarah.

    • Thanks Sarah. For me it was good to get out and talk about something important to me, and have a break from dealing with my mother’s death.
      Phil.
