THE MEANING OF AUTUMN

AUTUMN whispers the tones of yesterday in a minor key ~ Gemma Wiseman

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)

side mirror beauty...


while waiting in the car (out of the rain) for hubby to return from the Dromana shops,
I noted this side mirror on the car next to me ...


humble side mirror
claims a shining moment
in the rain

power of easter...


I know that this photo looks a little strange.
At the time, I was sitting in a train carriage and saw the sign of Happy Easter outside on the waiting bus.
In spite of the graffiti on the train window and the barrier beyond
and the limited view of the bus,
I wanted that sign.


easter and christmas
cut through and shine through
the clutter of life

Flinders coastline...


view of the Flinders coastline on the southern end of the Mornington Peninsula...


where the coastline sweeps
rocky headlands clasp and soothe
the waves
