Ree-Writes #20: 20-20


I’m sending this issue out as we go into the Easter long weekend here in Australia.

For the past few weeks, the sun has been tracking rapidly across the sky to its winter rising point. The world turned the thermostat markedly down in the past few days (though not as sharply as it does in our previous home of the Blue Mountains). My social media feed is its funny April mix of snow and vibrant spring blossoms as the northern hemisphere moves into spring. It creates a strange overlap as we in the southern hemisphere head into autumn.

Outside the kitchen window, the frangipani tree leaves are starting to grow yellow and mottled brown and are starting to fall. Most mornings, the two love-bird pigeons are here snuggling together on the frangipani as they face the rising sun, just like they’ve been doing all summer, and all last winter too.

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

Something I created

The Bee and the Ocean-Flower

The bee found an ocean-flower and gathered its pollen everyday.

Soon the honey had veins of aqua playfulness, turquoise stillness, storm grey suddenness and dark blue thoughtfulness. If you looked closely, you could also see shining speckled memories of salt.

People who tasted the honey cried at its exquisite taste. And it sold in ever smaller quantities for ever greater prices.
