The gum-tree stands by the spring
I peeled its splitting bark
And found the written track
Of a life I could not read.

- Judith Wright

'Judith Wright was inspired to pen these words, intrigued by Nature's enigmatic graffiti on our smooth-barked gum trees. These scribbles have puzzled biologists and bush walkers up and down Australia's south-eastern seaboard for generations.' (Author's introduction)

Measured Turbulence, A. S. Patrić , 2012 single work short story

'From the black, freefalling nothingness the voice emerges with an absolute American calm. That television-friendly NASA cadence of confidence: everything is A-OK. The pilot speaks soothingly about the turbulence. The muttered ‘motherfucker’ at the end of the transmission makes Keith blink, although it doesn’t destroy his confidence. The lights flicker back to life as the plane continues to vibrate. He isn’t feeling any fear. If anything, he’s bored. Julia can go on and on when the subject is her soul. She believes in the sacred spaces of her inner life, and within the confines of their airplane seats there’s no escape. ‘The best thing about this dream is that it was weird in that great way, where you’re almost thinking while you’re asleep, this is so cool it’s like a film by Buñuel.’ (Introduction)
