Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it

I have an avocado tree in my garden. It’s a bit manic. Some years I get five avocados. Other years its a couple hundred and I end up dispensing crates of produce to everyone I know.


This year it seemed more even-tempered and middle of the range. Of course when your fellows are feeling expectant having once received a cornucopia of deliciousness, handing them each just a smattering of an anticipated bounty doesn’t draw the same measure of appreciation…

I briefly think about turning this into some sort of analogous tirade about broader economic ideology and the human condition. But I’m tired now having poked a big-toe into the migrant labor experience.


I also probably need to have a nap. Because I’m old. And all this balancing, coordination and fresh air has taken it out of me. I also got stung by a bee. An African-killer-bee, not your namby-pamby European or American Anthophila, albeit through my t-shirt and so didn’t get the full on death-effect. Although I don’t seem to be allergic anymore, so totally less dramatic.


On the whole not a bad haul. Although I don’t think I’m going to quit my day job just yet.
