Despite being neglected for a few days while I was in Melbourne and then barraged by dust and high winds, the garden is hanging on! It's not exactly growing DOWN, the way I think it's supposed to grow, but as long as things aren't dying, I'm happy. (Actually, one plant is dying, but you can't ask for everything...). To the right is the bunny and the little man looking out at approvingly at the garden.
Meanwhile, I'm pushing through a cold (damn you Melbourne!), writing masses of papers, and trying to find time to enjoy the weather. It's been steadily over 75 F for the past few weeks- summer is right around the corner.
Plans for November through March include: Abu Dhabi, music festival and travelling in Victoria, music festival and travelling in Tasmania, trip to New Zealand, scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, and potentially a trip to Qatar and Spain. The Spain piece is really up in the air. All in all, a very good summer. I don't have much to complain about, do I? Only really that I miss all of you and wish you were here with me.
