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)

Perhaps Love...

Pic by Gemma Wiseman edited in Picnik ~ A performer at the Australia Day 2011 celebrations, Dromana, Mornington Peninsula
Carry on Tuesday #91 ~ This week we feature a quote from the pianist Arthur Rubinstein:
Love life and life will love you back. Love people and they will love you back.


Love life's multi-layered paintbox....................Love people's light and shadows
And life will love you in return....................And people will love you back
Perhaps in strange ways...............Perhaps grudgingly
Perhaps at strange times..............Perhaps thankfully
But it will happen.................Perhaps...

Hosted by Keith's Ramblings

An unusual split format which suits the double-edged quote.
