Sunny Queensland has taken on a chillier and a very distinct winter aspect. Down in the Southern States snow has been falling on the alps.
Some new winter characters have appeared, seeming to know just when it became necessary to light the fire and huddle up close, snug and wrapped in a blanket. They too are rugged up and ready to participate in the seasonal magic that transforms the landscape and whispers “Rest”.
However, for me the taste of winter is but that. In a few days we will be stepping back into summer and stopping over in Singapore on the way to Great Britain, which seems seems a very intangible concept for now. While in Singapore we will delight in the Cloud Gardens and rich aromas, colours, culture and experiences of a world so different.
But for now it is winter, cold and warm all at once .
This is the post that was preset to go up as we headed north, since we have landed in the U.K. to a chilly welcome ,a season that is somewhat confused, grey and bleak and quite wintry. So these personna seem to be lingering here too.
