Travelling to Queensland hasn’t been all meetings and Vanilla Slices.
Most trips here have involved a day or two to see my mother in Maryborough, and many would ask how she was.
The last time I physically visited her was after meetings in Brisbane held in February.
This time the trip was to visit the niche where her ashes have been placed in Point Vernon, Hervey Bay, where she lived for twenty years or so.
As circumstances have changed it also seems that most of the meetings I attend will be by video-conference from this point for some time.
There will be future return trips, but from this point there will be a most significant point of difference.
So it’s also a good time to acknowledge family and friends who have made my travel and accomodation in Queensland though these visits such a pleasure.
