The party I nearly missed, knackered after a two-week deployment and having barely arrived back in Canberra three hours earlier. The two Jesses (Williams and McLeod), on the occasion of Jess W's final day at work before going on career break leave. Nearly three years later, Jess has yet to return to the national capital and last I heard, she was living in a 'intentionalist' community in Portugal. A truly free spirit. The Lighthouse Pub, Belconnen, ACT, 17 December 2010.
