    • “ When human behaviour and climate go haywire together, it is a most disturbing thing – it breaks your heart and mind together. A long drought with a long war, shortage of water and not enough mercy, mad winds and mass mindedness – these things in unison can tear the plot right out of your grasp. This is how you lose the plot: the living coherent story about sanity and nature – the reliable narrative by which we cobble together some sense of ourselves and all that whirls around us.
    • … Life is strange enough at the best of times, and making sense of it is not easy. Sometimes, however, life’s absurdity is simply a gift that we might gladly and humbly accept – a form of holy communion…” Michael Leunig, Sept 2006
