We hope this post finds you well. We know that planning colleagues and students around the world are in various stages of lockdown restrictions, and living with the ongoing trauma of disease and death. We send big love and solidarity from UQ|UP. In Brisbane, we were luckly to emerge from our lockdown early on this year, our state, Queensland, having eliminated the virus. Still, it has been hard going, and we are not unscathed. Many of us have friends and family in other Australian states and in other countries, whom we worry. It’s been quite the year all in all, so we want to send best wishes and hopes that you all get to take a well earned rest over the next few weeks.
