This was the invitation, titled “Chasing Rainbows”:
“Just so there is no mythunderstanding, we won’t be looking for a pot of gold, but something far more magical. That place where the rainbow kisses the earth and imbues her with all its colours”
Ron lives an hour or so north of Perth on the road between Bindoon and Toodyay with a block of land, a veranda (with attached house) and a proper shed. We’re quite jealous. Sarah’s mostly into the quiet, lack of traffic noise and all that bush. I’m also very attracted by this, but that shed and it’s collection of ‘projects’ draw me too.
Next door to Ron’s block is the Julimar State Forest. It’s spring in Western Australia. This means flowers. Everywhere. In a place where high fire-risk and watching every drop of water is so embedded in our instincts this dazzle of delicate life demands that we chase those rainbows.
Quite special :-)
