Light, air and the autumn wind. Good drying weather. Ethics and history and peace and war and the laundry. Taking stock. Abandoned cities, lost children, political legacies emptied of all honour. . How we commemorate, and what we forget. The cost of education, the cost of living, the costs of doing nothing. Insects, birds, bulls, deer, saplings, forests, the Great Barrier Reef. Ethical beekeeping, hydrogeology, the second person. Ruin porn and inspiration porn. Solar Punk and Chengyu and the Argonauts. Housing and home, love and Metta, class and compassion. Understanding where it is that we exist when we're gathering our forces. Let's get our house in order - and prepare for what comes next.
