About me

Gender Female
Occupation Public Health Physician
Location Sydney, NSW, Australia
Introduction I began blogging just after entering my second half-century. This is one of those random-personal-thoughts type blogs, rather than setting out to move and shake the world. I sometimes feel that eclectic is my middle name. So visitors here are likely to find reflections on: my ongoing faith formation in the reformed tradition (currently Uniting Church in Australia); justice and poverty; knitting; family; food; exercise; and many other seemingly random connections. I live in Sydney with my husband and have three adult children. I was born in New Zealand and lived there until January 2007. I work in a medical school where I am Head of Population and Public Health.

Your pajamas have duckies on them. Why did you switch from choo-choos?

I like living things with small carbon footprints
