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)

Scrambled mixed blessings
Charm of procrastination
Deferred commitment

Today in America is yesterday in Australia.

What does that make tomorrow?

I think we do share some hours of the same day, maybe six hours or so, but maybe you can tell us what tomorrow is like since you are already experiencing our tomorrow.

Hi Gemma,

Short and sweet take on Tomorrow that says it all. I always make a commitment but then procrastinate about completing it. Well maybe I think I make a commitment and then never complete it and thus think I am procrastinating. Maybe I need to think about this tomorrow, yeah that is what I need to do, I think...

Great Tomorrow Theme Thursday, liked it. Thanks for playing with us.

God bless.
