When Greeks come visiting at 4 am

It’s a heady time. A change of government that swaps the barren ideals of economic rationalism for a more fertile social conscience. A new focus on the Uluru Statement as we head into Reconciliation week. Yesterday, following three years of housing insecurity following the scandalous collapse of Sterling First, Jenny and I were able to sign a new rental agreement while renewing our pursuit for justice and compensation for the cohort of retired battlers that were scammed.

No wonder the Greeks came visiting at 4 am. Their names are Kairos and Metanoia. They are as ancient as human awareness and figure large in both Greek mythology and the Christian sacred texts.

And I have Brandon Andress to thank for their calling, having read his latest blog entry last night. It is a fresh take on the giftedness of the fleeting nature of significant time and the transforming power of opportunities missed and reclaimed.

It perhaps explains some seismic shifts that are abroad in our national consciousness.
