We moved up there some time ago now, and inspired by mud-wasps and swallows, began to build a house. We didn't have much money, and only my father's old hand tools to work with and learn from, but we had forests of pine standing seasoned after fire ; there… Read full post »

No, it's not.
One of the sheds, it used to be full of timber, old doors & windows, some machinery and furniture ... used to collect water, precious up there. Two big tanks, both gone. A hut nearby went too.

When Anna was in Italy last year for a while I moved to her place with Greersy's rabbits and house-sat, garden-sat, rabbit-sat.
Sat all over the damn place.

Blown over what appears to be an x-ray painting of a barramundi ~ all conjecture, as this is between 40 ooo years old & last year ~ what struck me first was the reaching of… Read full post »
