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)

Subconcious design-very much so!
I enjoyed both very much.

Lisa at Greenbow said...

I like the idea of tapping the subconcious for design.

SandyCarlson said...

The ironic idea of killing time as we make our lives is compelling.

Love that photo-doodle. Your poem-a great way to find possibilities.

Not being a photo-shop person, I would never have thought of a computer as a place to doodle - still gotta have a pen in my hand for that. So your poem and image really showed me something!

I like your juxataposition of "spending" and "killing" time.

Beth P. said...

Loved your designs...and words.

I too think that killing time is necessary for soul-making...

Thanks as ever for your depth--

Possibilities, doodling and artwork - a super bit of thought!

Jim said...

Hi Gemma, I do like your subconscious design. Is it just the opposite of creative doodling? We do each (I do, but mostly subconscious).

I really like the connections of subconscious & possibilities... great post.
