I'll be performing at the Bondi Beach Uniting Church on Wednesday.
While a mixed bag, my performance does include some scientific
references - to the Eclipse, and Mary Somerville translating Laplace's
"Mechanism of the Heavens".

Also, Waratah Gillespie is speaking at the Sydney Shove - "Close 
Encounters with NSW Special Branch" - see www.sydneyshove.org

Travel back in the past to hear the Egyptian Book of the Dead.  Hear
from the dawn of the Industrial Revolution.  Feel the strength in a
letter from an employee as the Great Depression starts to bite.

John Birmingham on Sydney's Cathedrals of Global Capital; understand the
passion of Sydney's Urban Explorers.  Feel the touch of the sun's blue
tinged light as an eclipse makes its way through the Australian outback.
See the opportunities in Chris Nagle's Softwell plan for personal
development.  Hear from Harvey Milk as he rails against the lies of the
Anita Bryants and the John Briggs.

Akio Otsuka's last letter to his parents before he embarks on a Kamikaze
mission during World War Two; hear Ray Parkin rail against the war crime
charges which were raised against his former Japanese POW commadant.

Abba Kovner watches a town in Israel mobilise for the Seven Day War; a
major in the Israeli Defence Force addresses a gathering of "Combatants
for Peace".

Also - poems by Rudyard Kipling, Denis Kevans and Barcroft Boake.

Please send all correspondence to :

   E. Malley, Grabbitt and Runn Solicitors.
