Breakfast in bed

Click on the image for a closer look


At "Riverbend" you don't have to sleep in the kitchen to get breakfast in bed - the possum penthouse will do! I've just served possum his breakfast in bed before the day gets too hot and he (or she) curls up to sleep for the rest of the day.

I've also fed the dozens of parrots and lorrikeets, the two families of wood ducks with six and nine chicks respectively, the one lonely duck with just one leg (an extra-large helping for her!), the kookaburras, and the water dragons - and now it's my turn: thick, hot porridge with a large helping of raisin in it and a coating of cinnamon sugar on top.

Corona virus all over the world, impeachment talks on Capitol Hill, an Indonesian Sriwijaya Air crash in Jakarta's Thousand Islands, snowstorms in Madrid - it's all so very far away as I sit here by the quietly flowing river, slowly spooning my porridge and sipping hot tea laced with honey, while trying to decide how much of nothing I should do for the rest of the day. I've got to live somewhere; it may as well be Paradise!
