Down here in S.E. Oz we seem to have entered the land of perpetual winter. The weather warmed up a month or so ago and spring sprung with a riot of flowers. Since then storm after storm has swept up from Antartica bringing rain, hail and snow on the ranges. I can see more snow on the mountains behind the town than I could in the winter.
When I retreat indoors and shut out the world every thing seems to slow down. An obscure mood of nostalgia for a past I have never known seems to seep out of the clouds.
