Oh my goodness, this seems to be my Year of Standing Up in Front of People.
Just when I thought Mackay was done and dusted, here comes an Art Forum (which is a public lunchtime lecture presented at the Art School, usually by visiting artists but sometimes by staff if they're doing anything interesting -- or filling a gap, like I am!) and an opening talk at the exhibition opening of two wonderful artists who happen to be good friends and very lovely women.
I'll mention this again closer to time (just in case you're around) but just for now I'm mopping my brow and feeling a wee bit nervous. But that's a good state of mind; it generates jokes, which seem to be essential for my speaking gigs, if only to keep myself amused.
