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)

Not only does a strong mother steady life's carousel, but she also stays (at least some of) life's storms.

Mother of the Snows
Mother of the Lights
Mother of the Winds
