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)

Who could deny that P is the most important word starting with P?

I love it...wish I could get a bumper stick with those words, now that I will be removing the 'Bush Bin Lyin' stickers off my truck...America grew up last night...and we are more hopeful for peace than ever.

Beautiful Gemma...

WONDERFUL quote on your Peace Globe. Peace to you today and always.

Wonderful message on your Peace Globe! Lovely images, poetry, and reflections too. Thich Nhat Hanh teaches that ‘Peace is in every step’ … a choice in every instant no matter what’s happening around or within us. As each of us blogs for peace today, we join our minds and hearts together to create this reality in our world.
Hugs and blessings,

That is a beautiful globe. But not just in style, but in meaning. Hate abounds, peace needs to be nurtured to grow and affect those who need it most. Peace is in our hearts, and as you say, let's build on it every day. Many will appreciate it...

Peace is the weapon of mass construction. How true.
Wishing you peace :)

Raven said...

Lovely post. I like that "mass construction" idea. Well done. Peace.

Dianne said...

the images are all so serene and beautiful!

Mimi Lenox said...

I got goosebumps reading this post. The purplish image with the statue is incredible. I will definitely include it in the peace globe gallery.

We all lit a candle yesterday.
It burns brightly still today.

Peace to you and yours,

Julie said...

So very true

May the spirit of peace take over.

It's a few days past the Blogblast, but there are so many peace globes still to see. Yours is a favorite!
