I believe I have to start this article with a thank you to my high school English teacher, who had us read the ‘Hills Like White Elephants‘ – an intriguing little tale full of semi-confusing metaphors and symbolism that buries a sad (and unfortunately realistic) story. As I’ve discussed with people over podcasts and casual discussion throughout
On January 26th, 1788, Royal Navy officer Captain Arthur Phillip guided a fleet of eleven British ships, each carrying convicts, to the colony of New South Wales. This date has gone down in history as the “foundation” of Australia. After overcoming a period of difficult settling and problems, the colony began to celebrate the anniversary of this date as the birth of their nation.
