Last night we made our way to Lake Burley Griffin with about 130,000 other Canberrans for Skyfire 2010 (it’s the 22nd annual event). It’s a fireworks display put on each year by our local radio station. The display itself lasts about 20 minutes and is synchronised to music. We usually take a picnic dinner and try and find ourselves a good vantage point. I think we did pretty well this year – good view, easy to get there, easy to get home, great weather. Good night had by all!

There was a family sitting behind us with small children and they had the best time ever . . . I just loved hearing their absolute joy at the whole thing – the oohs and aahs and wonderment. Oh that we should all remember to just find the pure joy in whatever we do . . .
