NOTE TO OUR ARTISTS:


I’m sure you all have noticed the absence of Marie (Ozstuff) in the last couple of weeks. Marie is recuperating from major surgery. In the interim, Ann and Bev will keep our Three Muses, Take a Word and Digitalmania challenges up and running. We know you join us in sending Marie our thoughts and wishes for a speedy recovery.


GOOD NEWS: Marie is scheduled to go home on the 14th to continue her recovery. I know we all send her our very best wishes!

Take a Word - Australia

This montage includes Ayers rock, a Joey, the Perth skyline, an aboriginal, and a bit of the flag.  Years ago, when Marie and I became friends, I learned so much about Australia that fascinated me, for example the opal mines of Coober Pedy with a climate so forbidding many of its homes, hotels and motels are underground.  I loved the aboriginal lore and some of their terminology, like walkabout and belonging place.  There is something beautiful about their beliefs.  Ayers rock is a sacred place to them.  As I'm nearing 80, I will never see Australia, but I am proud to say one of my best friends lives there!!
