Today, I would like to acknowledge the strength, resilience and capacity of the Aboriginal People
Rather than all the nationalistic parties that we have, we should use it as a day to Advance Reconciliation between all peoples in this country. A day where we put ourselves out to perhaps meet a blackfella (how many Australians have actually done that in their lifetime?), to celebrate the racial diversity in the country and to acknowledge there are still things to be done to make this an even greater country. I love Australia too, but I love an even better Australia that is even more inclusive, more caring, and one that we can strive towards -- together!
Okay, end of my Political Rant. It is also my daughter Natalie Mahal's birthday. So, Happy Birthday to the girl who forever changed me as a person and who continues to bring so much joy into my Life.
On this Blog, I usually use a posting around this date to quickly look back at the Comicoz year and detail how many hits and misses there were, as well as talk of the Comicoz plans for the year ahead. At present, there are a few plans for the year ahead that are not quite finalised, so if it's okay with you, Dear Reader, I may defer that posting for another date....feeling, too, that perhaps I have already said enough.
