Bill Rodgers 2005

Hi,

Thanks for the fab SA4QE site. I don't know whether it's too late to submit an entry... hope not. Joined the Yahoo-Kraken group yesterday and look forward to participating in the discussion.

I live in Stanthorpe (a small rural town in South east Queensland, Australia), where I teach kiddies how to use computers in the local primary school.

I went to Brisbane (Queensland's capital) on the weekend of Mr Hoban's Illustrious Birthday (Hip Hoorah!), and placed the yellow page in the centre of the West End Community gardens. It nestled underneath some large dandelions - looking at home and beaming in a friendly way behind the flowerheads.

There were no lions any more. There had been lions once. Sometimes in the shimmer of the heat on the plains the motion of their running still flickered on the dry wind--tawny, great, and quickly gone. Sometimes the honey-coloured moon shivered to the silence of a ghost roar on the rising air.

Didn't manage a photo this year - will definitely do it next year...
