i’m 100 followers away from new world order i think it’s time for your lazy undisciplined asses to follow me
— Rainer Maria Rilke
Spring. I miss spring. And autumn. And winter. We don’t really get those things here in Australia. Oh, yes, yes, yes, there are periods of the year people — risibly — refer to as those things, but it’s really nothing of the sort. I know exactly what Steinbeck meant when he said that California doesn’t have seasons, it has ‘climate’. No way I’ll ever interpret his statement as a flattering one.
