One of my oldest and dearest friends was sworn in as a Magistrate in the ACT. The ACT’s first Aboriginal Magistrate. I’m so very proud of her. Hard working. Never courted attention. Never entitled. Put her head down and learned her law trade, humbly.

May there be justice ❤️ ‘Naomi’s mum, Sharon, lost her only child & grandchild that day; her partner lost the love of his life & their unborn baby..They don’t want Naomi’s death to be in vain. They want lessons to be learned and reforms to be made to the health care system."

At some point, we need to figure out what to do when it's a dead end (both when we see it metres ahead and/or when we find ourselves in it).

Perhaps fittingly for another manic Monday, read Susan Leong's recent piece on cobbling fragments of work: (then read her other reflections on work in the post-bio links)
