AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Light a Contact! Burn a Contact!

Prompt image picture taken from the top of Seattle's Space Needle
Microfiction Monday #38 ~ where a picture paints 140 characters, or even fewer. Susan says:
Photos will be from my own archives; illustrations are from Dover Publications' free clipart sample newsletter.

Your Dad's waiting! Have you made contact? Are they close? Tell me! When can we get out? It MUST be now or we will always be his slaves!
(140 characters)
