I've kept this blog, on and off, since 2006. In 2015 I used it to chart daily encounters, images, thoughts and feelings about volcanic basalt/bluestone in Melbourne and Victoria, especially in the first part of the year. I plan to write a book provisionally titled Bluestone: An Emotional History, about human uses of and feelings for bluestone. But I am also working on quite a few other projects and a big grant application, especially now I am on research leave. I'm working mostly from home, then, for six months, and will need online sociability for company!

The GetUp Mob! - From Little Things Big Things Grow

Here is the GetUp Mob's mix of the Australian apology to the Stolen Generations. Our PM is the star, and Paul Kelly's song about Vincent Lingiari never sounded so good...

I also bought the song from iTunes (proceeds go to Link Up, helping Indigenous folk re-unite with their families). Read more here.

That's the best group effort I've seen in ages. No cheese anywhere.
