I had my mid-week post ready to go, but then the attack on the Capitol Building happened. It can be upsettingly surreal to watch this kind of thing unfold as an Australian; there’s a very naive tendency here to think that US politics are irrelevant and don’t affect us. Meanwhile, I haven’t managed to stop checking the news for more than half an hour at a time.

Anyway, real blog posts next week. For now, all I have is cats.
