2014 in review (with some #putoutyourbats).

A lot can happen in a year. I find it helpful in the time between Christmas and new year to have a look back at all that happened in the last 12 months. To remember and reflect upon what might be done differently in the next 12 months.

As is true every year, some of what happened was very good, some was very sad and other things were downright awful. There are things to give thanks for, and others to pray about.

Here are a couple of compilations I’ve found around the place. My favourite, by far, is Marc Fennell’s.

Bring on 2015.




As a bonus, these are my three favourite photos from the past 12 months. #putoutyourbats

It’s Mabo, it’s justice, it’s law…

This is a scene from the Australian movie ‘the Castle’.

In it you will find the classic line, ‘It’s Mabo, it’s justice, it’s law, it’s the vibe, and, uh … No, that’s it. It’s the vibe’

The movie is an Australian classic.

If you call yourself Australian, and you havent seen it. Well. I think you know what the means.


The beginning of the quote mentions Mabo. More specifically, Eddie Mabo.

Eddie Mabo was an Aboriginal Man who fought for native title in Australia.

I’m very excited that the ABC have made a feature series about him.

Here is the trailer. Watch it.
