NOTES FROM THE ROAD

a small sporadic blog series initially published as a TinyLetter newsletter

BEAR GULLY

“THE shadow of Mount Oberon. Looming above. Rocks craggy like teeth. In a succession of small ways it all felt like a homecoming.“

TERMINAL THREE

“I SLUNK into the airport terminal. Deposited via Uber. Driven by a man named Danish. Reading in the back of his falcon made me feel ill. A headache that had dogged me all day rose up, riding on a wave of nausea. Checked my bags. My carry-on weighed more than my checked luggage. The fillet of muscle between neck and shoulder ached from the weight of it.”

JERILDERIE

“Being interstate is curious. Everything is - for the most part - the same. But the road signs are printed in a different font. Number plates are yellow. There is a hyperawareness in being a stranger.”

GREAT OCEAN ROAD

“I note how bright the water is under a bleak sky. Ultramarine. My hair whips in the wind. Mum says we’re going to go get a cup of tea in a café in town. I turn away from the wind, and the world is instantly hushed.”
