The Gods were already old when talk started of retirement. They had not lost any of their superhuman powers. But their reasons for unleashing an earthquake, a flood, a storm of wildflowers or a plague of butterflies were a bit different to the old days. Back then, they would go into battle over a shapely eyebrow or the curve of a thigh. Today…
Originally from the outback deserts, I now live in the mountains above the Molonglo High Plains, near to the Australian alps. After a career in public law, I am taking a little time to reflect and regroup. Watching the world and telling stories.
I love old tales and wild places. A lifetime ago, I started writing about this in a book on game theory: Syntaxis. But lawyers don’t get much time to tell their own stories or pick their own paths. Instead, I was put to work building the constitution of a newly formed state and rewriting its civil law. In the course of this I joined a small group of people who, across the ages, have studied our most ancient laws, igniting a lifelong interest in the Danelaw and Norse history.
At works end, I used to count a republican form of government, a uniform law of defamation and effective financial management laws as personal achievements.
These days I hunt different experiences, writing books, lecturing on public policy and hunting waterfalls.
