It gets worse and worse here with COVID — but more of that at the end of this post! Let’s look at more of those tinted pics I have been posting on Facebook, and then a touch of music before the bad news. Yes, I know that here in Oz today is 11 September, but given we are on the other side of the date line we experienced all that on the 12th. I have however already noted something on FB which I may share tomorrow.
In fact it appears the first hit at the Twin Towers was at 1.00 am Australian eastern daylight saving time 12 September.
Michael Xu and I have been sharing music, but following our having somewhat of a contretemps in the politics department on FB Messenger — my fault as much as anyone’s — we at the moment do this via email. One of the singers he shared yesterday is this incredible voice from Kazakhstan, here seen on Chinese TV in 2020. Strangely, it is not my first encounter with his voice, the first coming via Louise D’Arcens who, as you may recall, now lives in the house in Sutherland that was my home from birth to age 8! Weird what the internet can do, eh!
The COVID news yesterday — our Premier is giving up regular daily updates. Can’t say I blame her. Clearly Gladys does not want to be visible when the sh*t hits the fan even more than it already has. But quite understandably her withdrawal is not being well received.

I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful - for all of it." Kristin Armstrong
