I have just got a handle on the jet lag, thank goodness, so sleep deprivation is now reduced to being woken at 5.30 a.m. by our kookaburra alarm clock. Our ‘studio in the garden’ is bordered by a creek lined with eucalyptus trees full of bats. At dusk they take off and fly very fast in a hoard across the property with a ‘whooshing’ noise. I remember on a visit here once being in the swimming pool floating on my back when this happened. What a sight! When they had passed the dark night sky came back into view to display the Milky Way. All of this certainly demonstrates God’s marvellous natural creation.
