    Burning season seems to have begun. Won't be much in our geological record around here but a big black line. There's mounting evidence that torching the forests as frequently as we do is detrimental to fuel loads settling over time, and the environment as a whole in terms of bio-mass and diversity. Yet onwards we go. I don't remember waking up to smoke haze in Perth when I was younger.

    I do.
    But not as much unless it was a bushfire.

    Certainly saw plenty of fires when I was younger, when you're fishing off the coast on a boat they're easy to spot. It rained ash at our place from a blaze in Bold Park too. The phenomenon of routinely pulling clothes off the line in Perth and having them smell like a bushfire is pretty recent though.
