I am running behind in finalising a paper I have to give in Armidale Tuesday next week. For that reason, and taking travel time into account, I will not be posting here until next Thursday.
This blog is dedicated to the history, life and culture of Australia's New England, that part of Australia stretching from the Hunter Valley through to the Queensland border and incorporating the Hunter Valley, the Mid North Coast, the Northern Rivers, the New England Tablelands, Slopes and Western Plains.
While New England has still to achieve formal political identity, it has its own character and identity and is, in the words of the Australian poet A D Hope, an ideal in the heart and mind.
Each week or so I feature past posts across my blogs that I think might be of interest.
If you want to know some of the reasons why I am still fighting for a New England New State try here.
Lynne presently lives at Ulmarra on the Clarence. Her blog provides a picture of one slice of New England life.
