  1. Wow! I was “beckoned” into the house, as I said to my 20 yr old Sam ,on the island on Wednesday. Absolutely astonished at what lay there within, I stood ,leaning into the front room pondering the question ? “is this an exhibit or not?? The lovely Charlie from the biennale took an interest in our interest and started to tell us about your findings!!! I was fascinated from the start as that morning I had opened a box of my “treasures” and layed eyes on a postcard from 20′s to “Nell” ; I am from Mittagong and have regularly walked my dog in Gibbergunyah reserve .Also , just now had a look at your blog and I have a sister ,Gabrielle Dympna ( another unusual name!) I”m definitely coming back to visit. . Margo
