on a road trip last century I wrote down Old Man Crow's stream of consciousness ramblings as an experiment, my favoutite lines were "brass key, back door primo primo, what for makes about as much sense as alphabet soup" © Rod Morgan MCMXCIII

love how you have lifted the edge to what lies beneath bringing to mind these favourite words from 'The Page' by Margaret Atwood (Murder in the Dark Coach House Press); "5. The question about the page is; what is beneath it? It seems to have two dimensions, you can pick it up and turn it over and the back is the same as the front. Nothing, you say, disappointed. But you're looking in the wrong place, you were looking on the back instead of beneath. Beneath the page is another story. Beneath the page is everything that has ever happened, most of which you would rather not hear about. The page is not a pool but a skin, a skin is there to hold in and it can feel you touching it. Did you really think it would just lie there and do nothing? Touch the page at your peril: it is you who are blank and innocent, not the page. Nevertheless you want to know, nothing will stop you. You touch the page, it's as if you've drawn a knife across it, the page has been hurt now, a sinuous wound opens up, a thin incision. Darkness wells through."

Yay for the new computer! I don't have a cell phone (or want one) & really don't enjoy having to peer into those tiny screens when friends want to show me their photos, reminds me of those awful slide nights when we were kids when my Dad would make us sit through the 11 reels of slides taken of our family...

Most Australian native plants are evergreen & adapted for hot dry conditions with long narrow grey green leaves and often waxy cuticules. There are only a few deciduous trees that spring to mind Brachychiton acerifolius (Flame Tree) Brachichyton rupestris (Bottle Tree) & the beautiful Melia azederach (White Cedar) which is in flower now here in Sydney, none od these trees colour up, just drop their leaves all at once helped by the caterpillars of the moths that eat them.

maples almost never colour up well here in Sydney, the leaves just go brown and shrivel up our summers are way too hot!
