Long lunch at Law School expense, thanking Law Librarians for their efforts in running e-tutorials under stress. Good food, fine wine, gazing out across the bay from the terrace of the restaurant at Darwin Museum, listening to Yothu Yindi playing their entire repertoire in rehearsal for this evening’s Telstra Aboriginal Art Awards. It’s a tough job but someone has to do it.
Today is Suzy Kruhse’s 50th birthday, mine is next month. Both watersnakes. Strange feeling. We still think of ourselves as in our 30s, full of promise with our lives ahead of us, when really much more than half is behind us. I wonder if you still feel that way at 70?
