Zoo-Mobile

Sometimes the comfort of a room
Sometimes I'm quite alone
I pack to leave a foreign town
It seems I'll never know

But I'll rent new accomodation
We'll make plans for mobile homes

Slow boats moving with the tide
Drifting far from shore
It's the nature of this country life
I've never known before
Still we'll make plans for buildings and houses
From mobile homes

Plant life
My life
Still life in mobile homes
Plant life
My life
Still life in mobile homes

The sound of wildlife fills the air
So calm and dry
The bushland burns in this southern heart
Like an open fire

Still we'll make plans for buildings and houses
From mobile homes...mobile homes

-- Japan 'Still Life In Mobile Homes'

I began the year in London, returning to Aus via Sweden, San Fran and New York. I stayed with my folks, couch-surfed, found a home that seemed to offer some stability, was thrown out of that home in a matter of months, couch-surfed some more, house-sat, and then moved to Perth, with two trips back east so far and another in less that three weeks.

Some days I feel like the eye of a storm.
