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)

Love the photo! There is something mysterious about portraying the backs of people. Your words fit it so well!

A great picture and so much said in so little space.

Nice words conjoining drudgery and dreams by driving a wedge there!!

Felt like a time-tripping, physics-driven truth.

I really like the combination of the photo and your words.

"A wedge between dreams."

....Ah, there are so many of those.
