How did I deal with a spoilt, narrow-minded, conservative nation putting Tony Abbott into power? I immersed myself in the natural glories of this town. Here are the things that struck me most: my backyard crabapple in full bloom, a neighbour's magnolia, a Grey Goshawk floating above the gullies by Church Street, a lone Richard's Pipit on a gate by Shangri La Rd, sunshine cutting through the grey and the whooping of a pair of Brown Cuckoo-doves.
