how australia calls me, part one

The view from my sister’s door.

Instead of fear being the guiding principle in my decision about where to live next, my sister Nettie wisely suggested that I weigh up the positives instead.

So over the next two weeks, in no particular order, I’ll share some of the reasons Australia calls my heart.

#1: I love the bush. I love the smells, the insects’ buzz, the melodious bird calls, the marsupials, the muted palette. There’s nothing like it anywhere else. It has a ragged beauty that feels right to me. Nettie lives on a bush block, so we’re right amongst it as we step out the door. I love that.
