Thanks Dan.
As I mentioned earlier - there is no recording of the talk I give.
Basically the outline is as above and i flesh it out with a couple of quotes, lots of pictures and the story of Kisogotami.
Having said that, I think next year I'll spend a bit more time on the presentation to ensure that it flows smoothly and not too heavy on the doctrine.
my audience basically doesn't want to be there and very few would be genuinely interested. So I need to make it more relevant to them and their lives.
kind regards,

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
