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)

Time Out on Christmas Day!

If you are looking for a quiet corner of the world, away from the Christmas colours, here is a seat waiting for you.
It is by the waters of Port Phillip Bay at Dromana.
And the view travels forever!
Happy Christmas!

A little time out
Christmas is so beautiful
But it's time to breathe

Shadow Shot Sunday 2 is hosted by Magical Mystical Teacher, Chubskulit + Gemma Wiseman

The blowing wind whispers the joy of the heavenly moment, while the earth in bliss yearning to mark the day of the divine birth. Wishing you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God bless.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Oh, yes, it is Christmas Day already in your part of the world--and a time-out is probably an excellent idea!


It’s that time of year,
The shadows make merry;
Fear not to draw near,
They’re no longer scary!
