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)

Locked minds surround you
But only you dare to lock
Your sensitive heart

As a teacher I know, and I'm sure you do too, the stubborn power of locked minds. But, oh, what a joy it is to find just the right key to unlock those minds!
