We spent the day with friends Markus and Virginia Richardson, whom we met at Tambar Springs … although, in truth, we met Markus before that in Armidale. Sue and I happened to be at the cathedral in Armidale when he spoke for the first time as a young clergyman.
Things have moved on since then.
When I hug Markus, I always feel I am falling into a place of great safety and Sue and Ginny are the best of friends.
Such events are the luxury of travelling and bridging miles which seek to penetrate close links.
