Indeed. Wondrous memories of Rob, who he was and of of the walks in the
woods he led. Particularly around the lovely Marylands Hotel in which we
were all housed during WOSONOS in OZ in 2002.

In which we conversed heartily during the day and sang lustily at night.

And made lasting friendships with fellow 'Spaceniks' near and far.

I join with others here who also pay tribute to Rob and Fr Brian who set
our sights for Open Space Downunder.

Looking forward

Al - formerly Alan
