The Road to Wollengong


Comradeship a sculpture

in memory of Michael Dwyer

on the road to Wollengong

A tribute to an extraordinary man

with compassion and a care of others

With whispers of lives past

Hopes and voices of futures yet to be dreamed

amidst a sunny seascape

  1. I like how you’ve noted that, as with any good tribute, this one conjures up both the ‘whispers of lives past’ and also evokes thoughts of future hopes and dreams.

  2. A man worth honouring for sure. A real shame that Gonski didn’t turn out as envisaged.

    I was disconcerted at first, because I thought there must be some other town with a name very like Wollongong. But in fact it is evidently Wollongong that you mean. (Well, that’s the usual spelling, but as it’s clearly an indigenous word, I guess the accepted spelling is arbitrary after all.)
