i like to ponder the meaning of words
is derived from 'australis'
which [more or less] means 'southern' or 'of south'
i quite often like to sign off on an email with
"blah blah [insert something warm and friendly] from the Deep South"
because i live in South Australia
which is kinda 'SouthSouth' if you think about it
which led me to thinking about things i like about the South
not just our South
but also the South of the North
[may be getting a tad confusing here]
and wondering "what if what the others think is on the bottom of the whirled is really on the top?" after all, we're not exactly falling off.
we have excellent wine [even the cheap stuff is quite good]
wonderful blue skies
the scent of eucalyptus and
the Southern Ocean
as well as some of the best chocolate on the planet
[which is so far as we know the ONLY planet with chocolate and therefore extra special]
the other south has extremely delicious food
not to mention lovely New Orleans, where i will be spending the month of November this year
today i worked on a sample of something a little out of the ordinary for me
some paper and cloth that might expand into my project for the month that i'll be working with NOCCA
we'll see. i'll set it aside for a week or two and see if it's still singing to me when i look at it again...
