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)

Blue Wolf Singing to a Blue Moon

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ When I visited Saskatchewan in Canada some years ago, I bought this little souvenir in Regina, the capital city.
Blue Monday meme

Blues are mystical
A lone wolf cries to the moon
Soft sad memories

The photo and text about winter reminded «Louis» that when it's summer here, it's winter there! (Although with the fog, it felt like winter in San Francisco today, bringing truth the Mark Twain's quip "The coldest winter I ever spent was summer in San Francisco.")

Wow... thats such a beautiful souvenir.. you create, through your words, a strange ambience.. that manages to creep right through and strike the very "self".. it transports us to some far forgotten place..
Beautiful...thanks for sharing!
