For Darryl Blakey
August 20, 1948 - January 19, 2007
I smell the faint scent of the pine needles, the drift of the burnt bacon and eggs and the strong smelling coffee as dad drinks down his first for the day.
Thanks to the staff and students at Hawkesdale P-12 who made these videos.
I see the sun rising as it peeps over the horizon for the start of a glorious day and the glimpse of happy faces and cheerful smiles as the day progresses. I see my parents placing presents in my stocking and the Christmas lights bursting with colour.
I hear all my loud uncles and aunties and their children waiting round the table for the tasty roast turkey, my cousins laughing when they hit people with the cricket ball, my oldest aunty calling out our names for our presents underneath the Christmas tree.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the 2007 AdvenTURE Calendar and who supported Soul Food through 2007.
May this season and the New Year be abundant.
Watch for ongoing Web 2.0 Adventures during 2008. Soul Food is the ideal setting to make good use of all the things that you have learned over the past twenty five days.
