Where is the love

I’m focusing on the things I can control at the moment and try to encourage my children to face the world with love, not fear as much as it’s sometimes difficult to do.  I often think about the lyrics too, in The Smith’s song Ask about shyness stopping you from doing all the things you’d like to in life – shyness, like fear, can be paralysing sometimes but I think it’s important to keep going after the big things in life that are important to you, ask questions and stay curious as we never know what’s around the corner.

It’s National Sorry Day today and there are a couple of Indigenous events I wanted to mention.  The Nahlinggu Bagung (Come Gather) Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Exhibition opened yesterday at Hatch Contemporary Arts Space in Ivanhoe and is on until 10 June.  The Little Book of Things to Do in Banyule also features some great things to do over the winter period.

La Trobe University is also holding Closing the Gap in Higher Education Symposium on Indigenous higher education next Friday at the State Library Theatrette, which includes a very impressive speaker line-up of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics and other high profile people.

The Darebin Homemade Food & Wine Festival starts next Monday celebrating food traditions and sustainable food practices.  A number of my friends do annual tomato passata bottling with their families, while Mr Rosanna actually made jam for the first time a few weeks ago.  Stay safe and enjoy your weekend.
