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)

Summer Memories

Last summer colours
The air was warm and salty
Last summer echoes

When the Summer draws to a close, it seems that many inhabitants are in the mood to grab that one bit of the last summer fun there is. I notice that up here, the one remaining (beach) warm day has the beaches full - people that are not happy to see Summer go away. We will miss the warm days when Autumn cools things down...

Love the blue and white of the umbrella - somehow, it becomes the framework for the scene. I see a Maurice Prendergast like watercolor.

And now you are shivering with the advent of autumn...


“If forced to make choices,” she said,
“I’d go for the crimson and red.
I’d let go of green,
(Some think it’s obscene),
Embracing magenta instead.”
