Melbourne, February, summer, 2017. It's 35 degrees and I feel like I'm dying (thank you for the lyric inspiration, Courtney Barnett). My skin has turned pink after standing in the sun to watch the first ever women's AFL (Australian Football) match yesterday, but it was truly worth it to witness such an important and inspiring moment while the whole world seems to be burning down.
I have a whole universe in my mind
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald
