Au revoir Bingara my friend

Ten days in Bingara. I survived the searing November heat in a drought that is challenging everyone out here. The farmers, the businesses, the council. I was never far from an air conditioner, but never uncomfortable.
And here they are – drum roll please – the ‘long and short of it’ as Jen says. The faces that meet us all when we arrive at Bingara after a long day’s drive. The hard working women who take the public on the Roxy tours, who set up shop for each and every performance, opening, closing, running here and running there. Jenny Mead and Georgia Standerwick striking a pose for me outside the box office. Thank you.
Thank you Carmen Southwell for your help in the research and procuring the material that will make up the Bingara Sountrails. Thank you to Bingara Central for allowing us to record with the kids. I will not miss the heat, but I will miss my long walks, the friendly people, my office upstairs in the Roxy.
See you all again in February.
