the love + ice blocks

I don’t know if you know this, but it was Valentine’s Day the other day. Valentine’s Day is this thing where couples are expected to be romantic and buy each other lots of stuff. It is this thing where people who are single are expected to be sad about their singleness. It is this thing where pink is ultimate and jewellery shops clean up. It is a thing that Hallmark really loves. 

This thing happened the other day. (Now you’ll be ready for next year, you’re welcome). In recognition of this, the theme of Febraury’s Our Growing Edge blogging link-up is ‘Love in all its forms’. Our host this month is Chinelo from Good Cake Day, head on over there for more information and a whole bunch of delicious cakes.

“…at first blush Australia connotes something non-human. Of course the genius of indigenous culture is unquestionable, but even this is overshadowed by the scale and insistence of the land that inspired it. Geography trumps all. It’s logic underpins everything. And after centuries of European settlement it persists, for no post-invasion achievement, no city nor soaring monument can compete with the grandeur of the land.”
