As we arrived, we were all given a gift of a thought bubble dream pendant, which of course I will have to try to engrave (looks rock hard steel though, so may just paint on it). We are about to go on summer holiday, but when I get time I'll add my inscription ideas- I've been asking people for their word of 2012. As with the symbols Marc screened on the bridge(also a great symbol), the key things in life can be represented with simple words and shapes. Of course, being M Newson, the symbols were more elegantly presented than usual.
I could write so much about the evening- we met some gorgeous, inspiring people. Clover Moore and her team had invited a wonderfully diverse group of people with many different perspectives, so it wasn't just the bourgeoisie. Ross has written a little about his perspective here . We both feel that 2012 will be a year of transformation. Ross actually did an interview on the subject the next morning on Radio National (and conducted himself superbly considering we had been out all night).
Happy New Year! Love to know your magic words for 2012 on here or Facebook too.
