While Australians sit on the beach grumbling about the 40% of heat I wandered across the damp park looking for a chink in the gray clouds above. They fight fires in Tasmania which destroy homes and lifestyles, around here we light fires in the streets just to keep warm! It's no fair so it is! I was inspired this morning to sit here after what passes for breakfast and watch the folks outside cough their way to market. By lunchtime the dank atmosphere has lightened to allowed me out for the cheap veg. "Happy New Year," greetings came from the veg stall, desperate to keep their loyal customers. (The other stall has many more for no good reason) It made no difference to me, I am still using up the left overs in the fridge!
Glory be! The afternoon saw the sun appear and left us with this lovely dusk view, Once I chopped of the view of the back streets at the bottom of the picture. It is always a good piece of advice to ;look up' rather than around you. The place you stand may be a dump but the sky almost always looks good, unless the clouds are gray of course! Tonight the sky was fab, and hopefully it will stay this way, well, not when dark I mean.
