Annie111 wide, reddish brown.
Warm like sand on sunday afternoons.
like i pulled fabric across myself and it was all blue
and soft
Footballers in little shorts and 100,000 people yelling and eating pies.
Sports mad.
Proud.
Amazing, friendly.
The end and the beginning of the earth in one.
Olive leaves lick the sky like little kites tied to a tree.
and heat fizzes up from the earth
wobbling the horizon
The golden ring around
Of coastline
Pulls up its waterskirt
And the bruised sun hits the dunes
Like I've never seen since.


I miss you so much.

ClairE Once at work I read a book all about Australia. About the different cities and the people and what the buildings are like and kangaroos and beer and friendliness and sports and abos and fashion and the sydney opera house and the schooling system and the bush and the color red.
I like its shape.
But anything I say will pale in comparison to Annie's blathe.

sean The Great Southern Land. The Land Down Under. God's Country. Distant, peaceful, barely connected to the world. Self-critical, pessimistic, obsessed with what other nations think of it. Unique. Australian.

My homeland.

It's my quiet, peaceful corner of the existance, and I like it that way.

john howard sucks bush red neck wonderland 060329
...
superleni is an excellent place.
it took me a few visits to other countries to appreciate that.
the best things are:
the cleaness (we've only been poluting the place for 218 years).
the rainforests, the reptiles, the beaches, the desert, the people are mostly pretty good too, from all over the world getting on mostly well together ...
mmm, we have our rednecks, racists, but i think hope they are a minority.
that said, why does j howard keep getting voted in? because most of the population is mortgaged to the hilt and last election he convinced them he could keep interest rates down ... which has not happened! liar, liar, head on fire. which must be painful for mr bush, seeing it's firmly lodged up his arse.

um...
i think we're a bit too easy going. we should be a bit more active. but we have it so good here ... it's warm, balmy, pleasant, and oceans away from the rest of the world's action.

we're hard workers, we're creative, inventive, mostly friendly, lots of us are open-mined. we do like barbeques. and beer. i think we wish everyone would just get along.

i think someone mentioned these:

abbo: is not nice. probably okay for aborigines to call each other that tho.
a lot of our native people are in a pretty bad way. we stole their land and culture. what do we are about that...? not much.

wog: can be bad, depends on context. i'm part wog. that doesn't feel bad to say. but i wouldn't point and yell it at someone else.

tessa Do you have any idea how beautiful this country is?

It is sad and poignant. Vibrant and rough. It's so complex.

It is demanding -i t cannot be easily seen or understood.

It is so incredibly old.
Do you see? Can you feel it?
So old, full of old tears which grow new possibilities.

It is the only place that makes any sense.

... perhaps I am a little homesick...
