Thanks for your warm response to John's Yarri piece at St Albans. It's specially gratifying coming from another songwriter.
Now - some reciprocal feedback. I was very moved by your two songs in the church service. I've just got a new grandchild and rationally - what sort of future can she have? - So "love and irrational hope" is really the only way to go.
And your other song with the message - if you're happy with how you live, it doesn't matter how you die. sums up my approach to dire threats of terror etc. (Sorry - I've had too much on my mind and don't now remember the chorus.)
What recordings do you have of these? And I never got round to getting the Chess Set. And only heard it the once in a pre-occupied state at Almost Acoustic...
At least I've found the words of the Trust of Strangers which I'd like to learn.
Haven't time to explore your website further to find the other songs I'm after - rushing off to a meeting; and recording Yarri THIS WEEKEND!!
Very best wishes

Still bloody missed! What's Carol up to?
See ya soon,
Lovely to hear from you. How many years?
How are we?!??! We all stagger along as usual ( without much forward planning. )
I'm still in music (30 years without a real job in September.) We are planning a celebration. Carol is the director of her preschool at Lawson this year. We have been married 35 years in May.
Peter is married with 2, and a professional drummer since school. http://www.petedrummond.com
Matt is separated with 3, and runs his own computer animation firm for film. (He worked on The Matrix , Red Planet and lots of ads where things fly, disappear or fall down and break a lot) http://www.hivestudios.com.au/HiveStudios.com.html
Meg has a daughter. We help a lot with her little one, Livinia (now 5) and she splits her time between teaching at her dance Academy, TM Dance, at Leura; singing with her inner city R&B band and working a couple of days a week at The Moontree gift shop. .
Josie our straggler is 11 going into high school next year and horse crazy. I am Poppy to all. So basically with a daughter 10, grandchildren 8, 7, 6, 5, 2, as well a semi resident 5 year old we have never stopped parenting.

Young Glen must be a big boy these days. I hope you are well. Peter still lives in our hearts too.

Unfortunately the friend I was with is not that political
aware and a lot of your stuff went over her head. (I constantly
wonder why so many Australian's just switch off when it comes
to what is happening in their own country and the rest of the
world !!!) I hope you sell a truck load of CD's at the National
Folk festival and if you can get a few people to just question
there own views of the world............."top stuff"
How can we ever say thanks for the wonderful party celebrating
We will organise to get you some old ones which your brother
is in from the
