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!!
