My creative (tropical) space
This was my creative space on Saturday. Very different from my normal space - it was warm and I was barefoot, for instance. There was a pretty astounding view from where I was sitting, too.
Even after 16 years of visiting my parents in Cairns, and being a North Queensland girl for 16 years before that, the novelty of being able to sleep at night in summer pyjamas with the windows open has not worn off. Neither has the thrill of walking around outside barefoot. Nor the excitement at seeing this guy on the way home from Port Douglas on Sunday (we were driving slowly to avoid the silly tourists who were parking all over a narrow highway to take photos of the croc.)
So now I'm back in the cold of Canberra and it's not so bad, except I have to make my own coffee around here and it's not as good as Dad's. I love Canberra's winters and the beautiful blue skies, but by jingo I'm ready for spring already!
