I’m writing this at 4.30am on Friday, 16 September 2022, the day this newsletter will go out into the world. My LittleOne woke me just before 4am with a demand to go to the lounge room. By the time I had heaved myself up and staggered in pursuit, LittleOne was sound asleep on the couch.

So here I sit, wrapped in a blanket, with a cup of unsweetened tea. The darkness is lit up by my screen and by the gentler orange glow of a salt crystal lamp.

We’ve had several bursts of heavy rain, three flashes of lightning, and some low, long, mostly-soft rumbles of thunder which have awoken my Indi-dog. Indi is now sitting restlessly next to me, her triangular ears tilted at their unhappy-at-storms angle, asking for head cuddles and reassurance.

Every time the rain stills, the birds start to call defiantly to the dawn – in chirps, soft whistles, coos and calls, and in the irrepressibly exultant laughs of the kookaburras. I hope the dawn hears them and replies soon.

I hope my words find you well in your world, and I hope you enjoy this issue.
