Autumn in Melbourne is magnificent. For a couple of weeks we've had gloriously clear, sparkling-sunshiney days interspersed with crisp moonlit nights and chilly mornings. Crunchy autumn leaves provide childish delights as they pile up along the roads and footpaths, perfect for shuffling through noisily on the way to work.
Now, as I get ready to bundle myself off to bed, fat raindrops are beating out a syncopated rhythm on our tin roof and the garden is soaking up the welcome rain.
This is contentment.
