Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

My sunburnt country

I have come to realise that I can't leave this place yet.
There are too many things I haven't seen, too many unexplored places.
My soul longs to hike great mountains, bush walk through valleys and swim in water holes.
Fuck Australia, you are the best place in the world...

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me!

The earth holds many splendors,
Wherever I may die,
I know to what brown country
My homing thoughts will fly
