Some quick notes from Mexico:
1. Mexico is celebrating Independence Week, and there were rockets whizzing past our balcony this morning. Total rockets!
2. Mexican waiters are so cool. They urge on my halting Spanish, saying Muy Bien and Perfecto! like I’m James Bond ordering in perfect French.
3. Humming birds are everywhere, and when one gets caught in your house and beats its little wings against the resonating heavy lead-glass Mexican windows, it’s like a helicopter in your living room! If hummingbirds were our size, they’d totally crush us like bugs! (And I, for one, would welcome out hummingbird overlords.)
4. So Yesterday just got short-listed for the Victorian Premier’s Award! This is a huge deal, and as always it’s nice to have my work recognized in Australia, my adopted home.
This is my new writing space, until it gets too sunny. Note the astonishing number of hummingbird-attracting flowers.
