A stormy dusk from the window of Derrick’s hut.

Dear LOSC readers,

You may have noticed that Life on Spring Creek has been a little on the quiet-side of late. This is because I am working on a State government funded project, which has taken time to get up-and-running, and which will continue for the next 12 months. The bad news is, there will be no blogging during in this time. The good news is that the report resulting from this project will be made publicly available when finished.

The other piece of good news is that some of the research topics on this blog concerning First Nations peoples will be completely re-examined from scratch, buffed-up with additional research, subjected to fresh interpretive models (as I am working with a colleague who is a linguistic anthropologist), and be subjected to rigorous peer-review both during the research process and after the project has concluded. The aim is to produce robust, informative new research that anyone can read if they are interested.

To all my readers, thank you for your wonderful support so far. Look after yourselves and each other, and stay golden.
