Catching waves and watching the bluebaggers get up with @zcduthie. Winter Saturday’s don’t get much better.
So I’ve never shared a memory post before, but 12 months on from this post that beach doesn’t exist anymore, nor does that wave that has given us so much late afternoon pleasure over the years, and nor does the deck from which this was taken. Lots of grief from Byron locals and visitors alike, but there is no holding back the ocean.
Big night in Sydney town last night. Privileged to present the Social Impact @gooddesignaus awards on behalf of Benefit Capital and The donkey wheel Foundation to the amazing team @familybyfamily Congratulations also to @justiceconnect for their groundbreaking work on the Legal Gateway, @youthemploymentsuccess & @drivecommunitytoolkit for innovating towards a better society who each received Gold Awards.

My office for the next month ...
This is a brilliant piece of design. The Canadian Museum for Human Rights is a moving and often confronting journey from the darkness of the cavernous ground floor atrium through explorations of human rights stories towards the light of the tower. It left me feeling a potent mix of deep sadness, awe at human resilience and courage, and resolve to be a better human in a world where those of us with comfort and power seem to struggle to shake ourselves free from deep prejudice against those who are different, and through no fault of their own are dealt poor hand. The last image is of a rock labyrinth garden and a pool about half way up, in recognition that when we see the violations of human rights that continue to scar us, there is an involuntary need for reflection and self examination.
