It's because of the banana
The world has turned on its axis. Seasons have changed, from summer to autumn and from winter to spring. Thousands of miles have been traversed, and travelled back again.
Earthquakes have shaken us. Nuclear reactors have wept into the sea.
I've returned to Australia and left the Middle East uprising behind me. I have a new job, in a new industry, and for the first time in my life I'm working outside the CBD. I'm a bridesmaid in a very special wedding.
Boot camp is a constant. A baby has been born.
Today, I bought a banana for the first time in a very long time. It cost me Three Dollars And Fifteen Cents. For a single banana. Just the one.
And I thought: this online silence cannot continue! I must speak of this!
I have found my voice again.
