The talk is one of two essays I abstracted from my book Australia’s Wild Weather, published in November 2011 by the National Library of Australia. The other talk, “The Weather of Who We Are”, was broadcast in May; it appears in print form in World Literature Today (US) in mid January, along with images from the book, and my poem “Pavane”.
