    I see you are in Ballarat for the Heritage Weekend. I thought I might pop in to say hello – I am the convenor of the Lunch Time Talks at the Art Gallery of Ballarat, & we have you booked to speak on Wednesday 25th August. Thought it would be a good chance to say “hi”. Hope the weekend goes very well for you. Pauline 🙂
