Escaping north to Cooktown

Cold escape
Long ribbon of road north
Look to the tropics
From the winter gloom
To a burst of warmth

Along the way friends
Friends old- reacquainted
Friends new- discovered
Friends not yet imagined- anticipated

Times alone in contemplation
Warmth
Distance
Understanding
Loneliness
The moment
The place
Self.

I’m sitting on a veranda of a friends house in SE Queensland in the warm winters sun. Melbourne was cold and wet as was the ride through central NSW. But from Coffs Harbour on the sun and the breezes are warm.  A taste of what is to come as I’m heading to Cooktown in the Queensland tropics – 4000 kilometres north of the winter cold.
