Australia had its general election this weekend. Please don't judge us by the person who will now walk the world stage as our leader. There are always winners and losers in life, and politically I seem to generally support the losing side. But at least I can sleep at night!
I went out to collect the morning paper (mourning paper?) and found this dandelion on my front lawn. It's simple colour and texture lifted my gloom. Even in the face of disappointment, there is still beauty.
