I seem to be on a little bit of a tear again. Put the citations in those 2 essays. It has to do with Dark Ecology. I finally got the shape of the thing sorted out, and what I wanted to say.
At present it's pretty nebulous in my mind, but definite. I've tried to write it twice, and I've chucked both attempts. They were too pieced together from other things.
But now it's making a whole lot more sense to me. This was after going to Australia and doing five quite different talks, which really helped to gel things.
That's how I like to use talks nowadays--to road test new stuff. So the upcoming talks are going to be with a view to putting Dark Ecology out there. Thanks people of Australia! You really sorted me out.
Going there has been absolutely excellent for me, twice. You can be sure to see there again, as often as possible--some plans are afoot at various places.
