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)

Window view of a Dromana shop selling incense, candles, images, jewellery, books, romantic clothing and buddhas

Strange realities
Storm the spiritual world
Sweet alternatives

Freedom of washed souls
Storm the clutter of living
United spirits

Gemma...I just love the little sculpture of the children holding hands in the circle. I would love to have that one on my mantle piece in the living room. I think I would like this little shop. genie

A great place to wander and explore .... old books, gypsy china .... I could easily loose myself in there for a few hours.

I hope people realize the reality of united spirits.

Like the first one more than the other, it felt more close somehow.. like I could place it in my life in some way but not be sure how.
