I am so happy that you are finally able to go back to Australia and visit. I loved the picture of Bastien at the shore. I am a bit of a water baby myself. I lived your short story "The Difference between Love and Time" - I wept while I was reading it. It was so beautiful.

I haven't left Twitter yet, either - I feel the same way about leaving a public space and letting not good people take it over.

I have had chronic fatigue since around 2014 - I am not sure of the reasons, although it is probably a combination of factors. I do find that a drug called modafinil (Provigil) keeps me awake, but I want to get to doctors and continue with more tests. If your ADHD drugs are stimulants, they will help with fatigue, but not any underlying oxygen uptake issues (which I guess researchers are looking at).

I hope you and your extended family in Australia have a wonderful December holiday - I guess it is not really winter there.
