Welcome to Janet's Blog

I first used this blog to publish "Trash" before I knew about ebooks. I wrote "Trash" twenty years ago. The novel explains why, in the original version of "If not for the tomatoes" Annie wrote: "We had aliens come and tell us". It wasn't Al Gore at all.

Annie isn't the hero of "Trash", but she has her own story ( a much more polished novel). Go to smashwords.com and look for "Tipping Point". (Follow the link to the right.)

If you're a first time visitor to my blog, try reading "If not for the tomatoes" first. (It's the short story in Annie's future - look in 6/5/07) This is only half the story, though. The complete story that inspired Tipping Point appears in my other blog as "Our choices".

To begin reading "Trash", start at 17/6/07. (Many apologies for the poor navigation.)

I love to listen to the rain falling. The stars are hiding behind the clouds and the frogs in the gully are loudly happy. They chirp and pobblebonk while I listen to the rain caressing the earth, cleaning the leaves. I can hear the bush drinking.

In the morning the birds whistle and sing in the sparkling trees. The freshness of the world stuns me. With reluctance I prepare to leave my home - go out into the world to earn a living. I am sustained by the knowledge of the beauty that awaits me when I return home.

But the seasons are wrong. This oasis of rain follows summer weather when it should have been winter. The weather records continue - hottest month, hottest year. Am I the only one who sees the patterns and believes the scientists when they call for urgent action?
