it is so hot here today. it is the last day of summer here in oz, and it is hot, hot, HOT. the cicadas are chirruping, the goannas are active and the sunlight is harshly bright.
the rhythms of the earth are so tangible at this time of year… days are slowly getting shorter, trees are showing signs of losing some of the vibrant green of their leaves. mornings have a lingering coolness to them.
even though it will not start to get cold for another couple of months, change is in the air.
i love the change of seasons, especially as we welcome in the cooler months. there are aspects of the warmer months that i love, but having pale skin (like i do) and living in the harsh australian climate is not easy. so it is with an audible sigh of relief that i welcome in autumn…
