end of the world #1: Christie’s Beach

15Mar12

Christie's Beach…and as in a scene out of  a Nevil Shute novel (imagined but not read), an astonishing scene from the apocalypse breaks out over the South Australian Seas. Donner und blitzen – sadly not captured here – accompanied by torrential downpours.

Back at my host Rick’s up in the Hills (and precipitated by the deluge) a plague of millipedes invades the house. The neighbourhood Kookaburras, Kangaroo and Koala were cute, but these mini-beasts threaten to tip the balance. Nature is fighting back against our colonial ambitions. They are in the shower, on the piano and in my bed.
