On Australia Day the four of us set out to get a fix of Mother Nature - the closest thing I have to a religion these days. I have such great childhood memories of jumping around on rocks and playing in waterfalls. I really want my two girls to experience it as well. So...we've discovered a little place not far out of town where we can enjoy a creek and lots of big lovely trees. We packed a picnic morning tea and had a lovely time.
I'm not big on nationalism - it leads to too many wars in my view. I prefer to be a citizen of the world. But I do love Australia - especially for its relative freedom from war and violence and oppressive government. So...Happy Australia Day everyone!
PS My hair doesn't usually look this daggy. It was a bad hair day!
