Have had

my mandatory ten days off from editorial duties. Have started working on issue thirteen—what will be, in effect, the third birthday issue—of Otoliths, & already it's shaping up to be something special.

Muggy as all hell here today though, comparatively, not that warm. Rained heavily yesterday. The monsoonal trough is moving further south than it ever has before.

Bushfires still threaten in NSW & Victoria. A cyclone builds off the coast of Western Australia. 60% of Queensland is disaster-declared through floods. These things are not new, but their intensity, their occurence & re-occurence, are examples of the changed climatic conditions that are now affecting this continent more & more.
