A proud local of Fairfield City in Sydney, I live a stone’s throw from Fairfield down-town. I’m one of the Ministers in Fairfield Anglican parish, at Fairfield Church @ the Hut.
More info about me and social media stuff etc. can be found here.
This blog’s name and header graphic shares inspiration credit between i) the computer phenomenon of my childhood in the late 70’s & early 80’s and ii) the tile of a poem written by one of my favourite current authors, Oliver O’Donovan. The Poem is included below.
High where the valley’s edge gave a line to the
Old road that bore Rome’s rulers and warriors
…Along the wild hill-spine, and steered them
……Down to the plains and the ways of judgment,
There flows a stream now, bedded in rubble and
Unnaturally suspended above the banks
…Of ancient plunging woodlands, calmly
……Watering genial upland pastures.……
So Grace, the invader, scornful of gravity,
Follows the traces left by our interdicts,
…Scoops out from hard-core legal strictures
……Runnels of kindly communication.
