  1. The mood of the photo matches the sentiments of your poem so well. It is turning into autumn. Thankfully it looks like Melbourne has another week of summer coming up 😀 Hope it isn’t cooling down too fast for you up there as of yet 😀 Enjoy your weekend.

    • Haha thanks Mabel – it is still steamy here. All my work colleagues are complaining of no sleep because of the hot nights – roll on winter I say. Thanks for the comment. I was watching the clouds on the horizon the other morning and it occurred to me that this is the same way trouble can brew in our lives – just a shadow on the horizon which we take little heed of, and if we have not prepared ourselves for the full effect, it can indeed leave us in a world of pain or in the literal sense of the poem, the change of season can leave us with a very empty larder. Stay warm Mabel and I hope your weekend is full of fresh air and enjoyment 😊


      • Shadows can indeed start of as small, and they creep up on you even when you are most alert and on the lookout

        It wasn’t that steamy when I was up there, Andy. I actually slept with the windows open every night 😂 Some Melbourne summer nights can be cold and I can’t do that. I might hit the beach tomorrow actually 🙂
