History Made

I do spend a lot of time thinking about the past, but every now and again the present happens right in front of me in a way that I know will be remembered for the past.

Yesterday our first female Governor-General swore in our first female Prime Minister and although Australia, after leading the world in this area, is not even vaguely in the league of other countries, it is still a moment to celebrate.

I love this photo for the way it clearly illustrates this really special moment in Australian history.

Quentin Bryce, Governor-General and Julia Guillard, Prime Minister.
