hey toto

i'll be away from my computer until Saturday evening, yes...i'm pumping the air. i like to go cold turkey every now and then, just so i don't get a bad habit or something like an attachment to it.
my right hand has a carpal problem, ouch...bad timing for me.

i'll fly from yeppoon to melbourne tmw morning and really looking forward to friday's launch of 'job'. i feel a bit like dorothy waiting for the wind to pick me up.

packing light (or trying to) two jumpers and a coat, jeans, black dress plus a few other things i'll need...taking the black boots instead of the red shoes.

underneath this weather

trees offer their limbs


all day the light sounds
