----------empyre- soft-skinned space----------------------
that’s a real shock. Adrian was a great guy: I particularly recall a long day’s 
hike in the Brisbane Ranges near Melbourne and the area where he grew up - 
stories of drought, indigneous peoples, farmers . . . the kind of storytelling 
that filled his blogs. 

jeez, I’ll miss him
