Port in the news

In case you missed it: a beautiful interview on ABC radio with Teresa Matarazzo and Diana di Mattina who have brought a touch of Sicily to the Port Melbourne foreshore kiosk and improved [speaking for myself] my opera appreciation. Richelle Hunt from the ABC says: 'Sometimes you meet someone who makes you want to be a happier person' - that's quite something. And then a moving interview in the Melbourne Weekly Port Phillip with Dennis Fisher, Port Melbourne resident and Aboriginal poet, about his life journey. Dennis says: 'I call myself a no hoper. "No" for violence against women, children, the elderly and people with disabilities. "Hoper" that we can one day all sit around a big fire and have a laugh, have a drink, have a cry, and move together as one.'
