Other horizons beckon folks, and it is time for me to turn this page. This has been a momentous year for me in many ways and the confidence and friendships that this blog has grown are a treasure to me. I am ever so glad that we shared the same compartment for this journey.
|"The time has come," the Walrus said,|
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes and ships and sealing-wax
Of cabbages and kings
And why the sea is boiling hot
And whether pigs have wings."
I have been rummaging around in my upstairs attic trying to decipher what direction I am to follow during 2010. The answer is quinessential moi: I am going to undertake a pre-Masters-by-Research year investigating the growth of merchants and shop-keepers in colonial Sydney from 1788 to 1842. If I last the year, and if I find the skill to both research and write at that level, I will endeavour to enrol in the School of History at UNSW for 2011 & 2012.
So, I bid farewell to strangers who became friends.
