Dearest Everyone —

My family holidays in Australia have drawn to a close (I saw sharks! Photos to follow!) and now I sit in an airport hotel in Sydney, about to fly home (with an abscessed tooth, and a root canal waiting for me when I arrive — hooray!)

But before I fly off, I just wanted, once more, to put in a praiseful word on the wonders and marvels of travel. People, it is a glorious planet out there, full of fascinating humans (and even more fascinating animals — thank you, Queensland!)

I will arrive home jetlagged and weary, behind on all my work, missing my pets and garden and friends, and with a dental emergency on my hands…but yes: RICHER.

So, so, so much richer…
