‘The fight for free space — for wilderness and public space —
must be accompanied by a fight for free time
to spend wandering in that space.’
by Rebecca Solnit
I nipped down to our house in Aldinga for a couple of days recently, and just had time for a quick cycle to the bakery on my bike for fresh ciabatta and then for a brisk walk the following day.
Cycling home past the supermarket, I noticed that the field of gazanias was out in bloom again.
As I remarked around the same time last year, gazanias are noxious weeds in our parts …
… but they never fail to lift my spirits.
