A much-needed wet and windy day for this town, but no good for my walking therapy. Talking therapy I'm a champ at, as friends who drop in know. Now the sun is struggling to penetrate thick cloud cover, and the Sweet Alice is spilling out onto the driveway. Storm water is running a creek down to the Swan River through the wetlands opposite, and ducks and ibis are feasting gloriously. It's a good day to be alive if you're not sleeping rough. Beneath the bridges would have been crowded last night as we sat in gas-fired comfort watching the World Cup. A rich society like ours should have enough warm beds for all, no questions asked.
