Wild and Windy

It’s not normal for me to give something of a weather report, but there’s something about a wild and windy day, and the coldest Melbourne day in a year or so, that reminds us of those natural forces that go unnoticed most of our daily lives. It was nice to be around the bay today, to catch glimpses of its grey wilderness during the few times I ventured out. The bay, and the weather, have been inspirations for me for a long time. I never get tired of it; in fact quite the reverse, the more I come back to those familiar, local places, the more interested I become in them.
