Two months ago, I filmed a vodcast for FAHCSIA, the Federal Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs. FAHCSIA oversees the Federal Government’s commitment to tackling problem gambling, and they have a number of vodcast testimonials on their problem gambling website.
The experience was a life-altering one for me. I returned to my desk profoundly shaken and wrote “And Still I Weep“, in an effort to show just how strongly the past can cling to the present… just how much we carry around with us, even when we think we’ve moved on. Making that vodcast caused me to reassess what I was doing and why I was doing it.
Today, my FAHCSIA vodcast, along with two others, went live, adding to the three vodcasts that were already online. Please visit www.problemgambling.gov.au and take a look; mine isn’t the only story to be told.
But as this is my place, here is my story. Thank you for watching.
