69-kristina-dryzaAre you feeling out of sync with your life, with nature, with time itself?

Then find half an hour to sit back and listen to our chat with futurist and author, Kristina Dryza about her book Grace And The Wind.

We discuss why she’s not comfortable about the title, Futurist; she says reaching out for one can suggest we are not at home yet with the HERE and NOW.

She also shares some insights into how we can recalibrate ourselves with the natural rhythms of life.

We enter South Australian television pioneer, the late Noel O’Connor into the SA Register

Another wine for you to win – and we’ll read the limerick entered by last week’s winner.

Music this week comes from Halfway To Forth, a band of Tasmanians who’ve made South Australia home.

In the Adelaide Visa Council, a defendent from last week is back before the council again

And we get an update on the hipsterisation of Steve Davis.

Plus 6yo Alexandra Davis joins us briefly to wish South Australia a Merry Xmas.
