When I bought my binoculars with the intention of travelling to the deserts of Central Australia, those deserts didn’t seem so far away.
A few days driving, something like that.
But then the restrictions on travel were ratcheted up – and up – and before I knew it, damn well everything was far away.
One couldn’t go anywhere excepting the supermarket and petrol station.
Stay at home was the idea.
Home? Anya and I had never actually had a home.
