Words and locks and keys

I had a lot of words here.  Then I put them all in the cupboard, but then I got just a few out again.

Frog put the cookies in the box.

 

Fröhliche Weihnachten

Dearest friends, family, nefarious internet buddies and so forth,
This year, as last year, I wanted to give a gift to the the collective you – the multitude of great people in my life who inspire, inform, support, love and entertain me.

Christmas Lights 2010
And so, as last year, I’ve given a little money to a number of the causes you’ve been most passionate and vocal about throughout the year.  (This year, you’ve been so passionate and vocal about so many things that it was more difficult than ever to come up with a shortlist.)  In no particular order:
The Refugee Council of Australia (refugee advocacy), Bibbulmun Track Foundation (maintaining the walking trail from Perth to Albany), Equal Love (marriage rights), Birds Australia (conservation & education), BeyondBlue (mental health), UNIFEM (violence against women), 350.org (climate change).
Thank you for everything you’ve done this year to make our planet a little healthier, happier, fairer or featherier.

Fröhliche Weihnachten

My dear friends, family, internet peeps, gaming buddies, fellow crazy bicycle enthusiasts, colleagues and so forth,

I wanted to give you something this year that was about you – the collective you.  Throughout 2009, you’ve continued to inspire, inform and entertain me in so very many ways.  And so, in your honour, I’ve given a little money to four of the causes you’ve been most passionate about throughout the year.  These, in no particular order, are Electronic Frontiers Australia (internet filtering & censorship), BeyondBlue Depression Research (mental health), Community Midwifery Western Australia (birth choices) and 350.org (climate change).

Thank you for all you do to make my world, our world, a better place.
