It rained today. Purposefully. For two hours the electricity went off. I chuckled that in our ordered, organised and ordinary lives a little bit of rain, after weeks of drought, is enough to plunge us into darkness and sever us from our digital reality. My neighbour and I both wandered aimlessly to and fro, unplugged, undone.
The alders by the pond grow greener by the hour as the hormonal, hydraulic, genetic, energetic might of spring barges across the landscape. No power-cuts here.
Today I received many photos from recent trips to Sri Lanka and India. Here, from my friend Anne-Marie Kalus, are beautiful images from our recent Blue Whales and Leopards tour. There the sun still shines, no doubt. Here we are glad of the rain.
