Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. … Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.”
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

Ocean

Night waves crash on rocks at  Coogee. I was at a wedding reception at the local Surf Club, which was precariously perched on the cliff-edge above the Pacific Ocean. The Club was recently extensively damaged by a wild storm.

  1. Dear Dr. Professor Emeritus Urquhart Further to our mini conference by SMS last night….. I didn’t go to sleep until some time after 3:00am. Groan. Couldn’t turn ff. dunno why. But it was a bloody pain. I’ll have a look in the diary later today and send you some dates when we might be able to get together and commune face to face, mano a mano, eye to eye. You are obviously feeling well with all the Marrickville socialising. May it continue. More later. Hooroo The Vice-Chancellor xox
