1 To Journey without Travel Catherine Marshall , 2021 single work column
— Appears in: Eureka Street , 11 April vol. 31 no. 7 2021;

'The leaves are turning again, their rims crisping at the margins and their laminas flushing a deep red. The fluorescent pink flowers of the crepe myrtle are dissolving like clumps of moistened fairy floss; their leaves — which appeared so late in spring I thought the tree might have died — are yellowing before my eyes, a slow-motion blur of green to the buttery gold that will precipitate their demise. High in the paperbark tree, a rainbow lorikeet is admonishing an Indian minor; they’re fighting beak and claw over the creamy filaments of autumn’s already-moribund blossoms.' (Introduction)

'Overnight, my workplace has doubled in size. This once quiet space, filled with just the click-clacking of a keyboard and the occasional waft of classical music, now rumbles with the sound of my husband’s voice. He goes from one call to the next, discussing spreadsheets and renewals, holding conference calls and informal chats and performance reviews.' (Introduction)

'Running doesn't have to be a race. There are no winners and losers in this story - only the joy of being active in the playground, and of building strength, fitness and resilience. Learning a new skill can be challenging, but confidence comes through practice, learning from others and perseverance.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)

1 The Life of a Travel Writer Is All in the Story Catherine Marshall , 2017 single work prose
— Appears in: Eureka Street , 10 September vol. 27 no. 18 2017; (p. 52-53)

'Three weeks ago I was sitting in the back of a Russian-built tank as it sliced its way through the tundra of Siberia's northern Yamal Peninsula. I was part of an expedition north of Salekhard, the only city in the world to straddle the Arctic Circle's 66th parallel, to a camp where the nomadic reindeer herders known as Nenet had set up their chums, or tents. We had already been driving for many long hours, and now we were faced by a rising river that had to somehow be crossed if we were to make our way back to Salekhard and then across Russia's vast interior to Moscow, by train, and then, finally, home.'
