Lisa Bellear - my new statue of liberty

Here's the Sydney Morning Herald link to my obituary of Lisa Bellear. Dear Lisa was such a livewire connecting up so many damn power stations that this obituary, first printed in The Age (where you'll have to pay to view, searching through the paper's main site) headed to the SMH and thence to Green Left Weekly, Thylacine, Poetry International and elsewhere. Forget nuclear, just get Lisa to stick a thumb in it and it would have lit up right away. Let's not weep, but get up on our feet and keep moving for living reconciliation like her family John Harding, Destiny Deacon and the Bellears do... yeah Lisa, you lit the way alright.

with love and gratitude,
