We are hell bent on building walls……

In an increasingly unpredictable and uncertain world, Andrea has so succinctly written how many feel in their hearts.

Something to Ponder About

 

I am not a silent poet

Fish or cat?

Who am I to tell him

In response to The Daily Post's weekly photo challenge: "Forces of Nature." In Australia, a country aged by the wind, sun and sea, we see many examples of nature's work. I am drawn to the sea, as most of us who cling to the more hospitable coastal regions of Australia for hearth and home.

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Work of Art

I am a Rosemaler? This is my Rosemaling, through a Photo editing Camera app. I am planning on adding a border with an appropriate proverb. Rosemaling is the traditional art of Norway, and today is Norway's bi centenary: 200 years an independent nation today. Gratulerer med dagen, Norway. How about that? Australia is older than… Continue reading Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Work of Art
