Random and inconsistent snippets from an unstructured mind. My truth may not be your truth. A fact is a fact only by standing on it.
It can't fall down, there is nothing holding it up...
Except some sort of capitalist exploitation. The writer is a 3rd generation Indigenous Australian. Not, i might add, Aboriginal - two different concepts.

[under edit and updated re-edited: 16th]
mm, yep, know that there are a few people who think that am losing my mind .. but - the photos in the previous post were taken last Monday .. woke up this morning to this ....
[click fer a bit bigger'ns]
A light dusting began on the afternoon of a Tuesday day in May ..
.. and since it gets dark at around 5.30pm these days, tend to go to bed and sleep at about 7.30pm (why should i waste resources).
Woke up at 4am Wednesday, felt a bit chilly, decided to get some more wood from shed, opened door and ..
Oooer, rubber boot time (which, by the way, were found at the local dump 'waste transfer station' - a pair of perfectly servicable, size 8 Blundstones, no leaks). Went to shed, collected more wood (which had been chainsawed chopped prepared previously .. ), re-lit ancient slow combustion heater, extricated thermal underwear and ski snow clothing that had been quietly hiding in various cupboards and storage containers since somewhere back in the 1980's (Buller, Hotham, Falls Creek) .....
Waited for some illumination light (first pic), then wandered around the locality ..
Felt a need to share, but had to get the ladder out ..
since satellite interconnection is obviously 'weather dependent'.
Had, of course, been scooting walking in and out of the house all morning waiting for a break in the leaden cloud laden sky .. but while yes, have heaps of photos this morning, 'twill take time to process them. Hopefully, will get one with sunshine.
In the meantime, i come back and sit close to here.
but the lassiebitch female canine is a bit bemused..
and the local postal contractor might be delayed ..
and yep, the trees had a slight problem. Heard the 'cracK! - swoosh, 'thump' of bigger branches than these.
(perhaps Australian 'branches' are thinly spread, haven't quite the strength to withstand "European" northern hemisphere assault?)
Decided that this might be a 'good food day', so ..
decided to cook up a stew for sustenance ..
.. but unless readers think that am rich enough to afford to 'switch on' the rather fancy electric 'four hotplate' stove and oven in the background ..
the little 'campmaster' costs me about $AU1-00 per week to cook things with .. heh.
(not only that, know exactly how much it costs, week by week, and do not have to wait three months to see what sort of 'account' the electricity profiteer 'retailer' expects me to pay).
.. it's always wise to take care on the roads
.. and yep, totally puerile and pissweak .. but have always wanted to do this ..
[will probably edit this, add a few more pics - is the most exciting thing that's happened around here, for a while]
