    Edgeworking

    A friend of mine is definitely risk-inclined. To look into his eyes, the bright centre of his vaguely unkempt person, is to peer over the rim of the cliffs and cascades against which he continually pits his mettle. A climber, adventurer, horseman; he's the fellow who gets a mechanic mate to cut...

The vent also runs off my power wheelchair batteries. Then we have a battery powered suction machine and the lift...

    Guiding Star

    There are days in winter when the sun sets so quickly that you expect to hear it rend the icy evening air as it falls.

    Not by Sight

    Holidaying for a couple of nights in the Snowy Mountains my Favourite Wife and I are surrounded by trees, wonderful Australian trees, whose leaves hang down. And on our third alpine pilgrimage for the year we are hoping, once again, that it will snow! Downward-hanging leaves are superb. I...
