An earclip for radio, commissioned by the
Australian Broadcasting Corpoation's
Listening Room progamme
as part of ABC Radio's 70th anniversary on
the theme : My World, This Time.

The elements that made up my world at that time:

- the insect sounds at the Witch’s Fall trail, Mt. Tambourine,
- the ducks and other wading birds in the pond in our backyard
- the crackling of barbecue and our idle chatter on the eve of the new century
- the neighbours kids playing with firecrackers and part poppers
- waiting at the end of the runway at Coolangatta airport for planes to come in
- waves on rocks at Kirra beach
- and distant thoughts on hot summer afternoons.
