As a world-class sucker for Harold Arlen's anthem of the lemon-drop land beyond the emanations of the spectrum, I'm going to see this movie on your recommendation, Kate, humming "Waltzing Matilda," that most unlikely national anthem, on my way to the theater. My son is spending the year in (dare I spell it) Oztralia.

DL, how nice to hear from another "world-class sucker for Harold Arlen's anthem..." And I am glad you dared that spelling. Kate

I am what some people would call a half-caste boy with my Grandmother being one of the stolen generation. I live both white and Aboriginal lives in Australia. I saw Australia on the first session of the first day it opened and I felt a very very close connection with the film so I get extremely offended when i hear the movie and its stars being sledged by people who neither know what they are talking about or have lived what we live. It is such a relief to read this review and i am so proud of all the stars of the movie and Australia itself as they have the power to show the rest of the world what our country feels. thankyou for your views on this epic film, i am glad that we have been able to show you our home.

Hamish, I am very fortunate to have your response. Good wishes, Kate

Hamish,
I have just returned home from seeing the movie & the first thing I did was go on-line to see if I could learn more about your indigenous peoples. I have always dreamed of seeing your country, but at age 68 I doubt that I will get to see it first hand. I hope to learn more about the man who was "the grandfather" in the movie.

Hi Mrs. Bright, I think its great that people in other countries are interested to hear our story. where are you from? where I come from is round water country so we have a bit different people to in the movie but if you want you can talk to me over email and i'd be happy to talk(hamishtait@yahoo.com.au)

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
