Kate Llewellyn's world is one that concentrates on the simple things...the planting of flowers, the moving of a tree, the art of digging the perfect hole. This is a life that endows small things with grace and dignity. After moving from her much-loved home in the mountains, Kate starts to establish her new garden in a coastal town. Here she also plants roots in her new community and details the small acts of humanity that lead to friendship.
In capturing a moment, such as mowing a lawn with a blind man in the moonlight, waiting for the sound of frogs in a backyard pond or watching a lyrebird disappear into the scrub, In Playing with Water creates a meditation on nature, on community and on the cycle of life. With a poet's touch, Kate transports us so we feel the endless heat of summer; experience the smoky winds and the orange skies of the bushfire season; taste the salt that hangs in the air on the walk to the sea pool; and hear the squelch of lifting arum lilies from the mud...
In Playing with Water, Kate Llewellyn has created a lyrical memoir that is a celebration of the senses and the seasons.
