Sorry I've been away for a bit. I've had to be on the road a bit - to Flinders and Albury chiefly - and there've been a couple of SES callouts too.
Anyway, summer is surely setting in here. The paddocks are drying off and every now and again I see the steers in one of the paddocks looking at a hay ring in a hopeful manner. It'll be a long summer.
The hunt for work is presently a case of "hurry up and wait". Still waiting on a call back from one law firm, and a decision is pending from a commercial entity on an offer. Another application for work is promising and likely to succeed.
Reading a lot of Camus lately - recently read The Plague and The First Man. I dunno... The absurdism born in Algeria does seem to have meaning here in this dusty, superheated place. I know this seems like the best place to be to a lot of people. I've made some good friends here who love it, and once upon a time I'd happily have settled here. I just seem to touch the ground here lightly now, like a foreigner or a sojourner. My heart isn't here.
Will need to scurry to Melbourne for Christmas shopping next week. I'll try and catch up with some of the old crew for lunch maybe. Or not. I do feel like an A-Grade loser a lot of the time.
Well, nil desperandum. As long as I keep getting out of bed, I'm in control!
