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)

I'm Off to the Willow Manor Ball Tonight!


At last darkness smiles
Bright Willow Manor Ball lights
Glittering welcome

(Just click on the flowers
And they will take you there too!)

Inside
Candlelight glows
Fresh sprigs of flowers scent the air
And the gracious
Lovely Willow
Awaits her guests


I've brought a gift for her
She is a Libran
Like me
This ball is my birthday enchantment
On the eve of my birthday
So to thank her
I'm giving
A little Libran magic

Glittering dancing shoes
I will feel
I will fly in their beauty


And my dress
Deepest port wine
A dream
I'm living a dream
For a little while

But there is more...


I have long admired the multi-talented
Always dashing
Michael York
He brought the soul of Shakespeare to film
And he breathed life into
King Arthur and his romantic Camelot...
And he arranged for me to get to
The Willow Manor Ball in
A private jet...

And now
The nerves are seeping in
I am approaching Willow Manor
Alone
I see the lights
I hear the music
I see Willow
And I see Michael
Holding out his hand to me
His wife Pat
A professional, internationally renowned photgrapher
Is by his side
With a camera

She agreed to photograph
Our first dance...

My birthday is tomorrow
But tonight I dream...

Oh, wow. That was stunning, beautiful, and so inspiring. I love your dreams and have to say that I've always had a bit of a crush on Michael York, ever since I saw him in Logan's Run.

I'm going to work in a far better mood now. Thank you!
