I'm baaaaaaaack! after an action-packed few days away at uni
This year marked my 6th (eeeek) and final winter sympo -
so of course on the Tuesday night an earthquake struck
its epicentre was something like 15kms away from the university accommodation
(yes... the earth, and more did a LOT of moving and shaking.......
wooof! what a rocking time!)
I made the page above as part of the collaborative book project about 12hrs before the quake....
which has been variously reported as 5.5, 5.4 or 5.3 magnitude .....
ummmmmmm ..... right...... SPOOOOKY
lets just leave that one be and go outside eh?
I took my looooong book out for a bit of fresh air -
and found fungus under the pine trees on campus
later that day our small sympo sub group did a walk together in Morwell National Park
I found many more fungi
Mick with his trained eyes found something really special...
(a small fragment of an aboriginal artifact -
Mick has the eye to spot these things among the leaves and stones....
which is a seriously impressive skill)
And then today I had the long drive home - back through the boonies
where they were still cleaning up from a violent storm of 10 days ago
that closed the highway for almost a week
as hundreds of trees were blown over the road
blocking it for hundreds of kilometres
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumblin' down...
(I'll show you all a couple of bonus arty gesture things here tomorrow....
right now I need the comfort of my own bed....... ahhhhh HOME!)
