We discovered the most beautiful place to stop just over the border from Victoria in NSW. It’s not an ocean view, it’s not in the forest, but it is sustainable and pastoral.

"Twisted strands to a single center flow. Life is living."
I got the jab, 9 weeks ago in Australia. It was AstraZeneca, the only vaccine then available in Australia. I wanted to be vaccinated before I caught my flight to the USA.

" I asked clinging towards a future unknown. … Continue reading Listening to Old Logs
