Australia has my heart, and part of it belongs to cartoonist Michael Leunig!

Most of my life I didn't know what Colour & Oomph was. Imagine that, living 40+ years and not being able to recognize C&O! It's what Leigh does best! It's the little surprises we encounter along the way that make the journey so much fun!

When Leigh sent me my first Michael Leunig book, I wasn't sure what to make of it. It seemed a little silly and I wasn't even sure I understood it. It's funny how quickly it grew on me and I admit, almost to my surprise, that I've become attached to his work. I can't get enough Leunig! I love the illustrations, and his poems and prayers are so expressive. Here's one I'd like to share:

Let it go. Let it out.
Let it all unravel.
Let it free and it can be
A path on which to travel.

I invite you to take a look at Leunig...then pause and take a second look at Leunig.

And then take a look at yourself.

(And then when you've done all that, have some fun with these links!)

Outback Heritage
The Outback - remote, remorseless and magnificent in its magnitude - the heart of Australia. It was conquered by pioneers who gave up the comfort of coastal settlement to carve a new life in the unknown interior of this vast continent. The Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre is dedicated to the story of these unsung heroes, the men and women who opened up outback Australia.

Bowral. * sigh! *
Here, you are in another world, that helps you focus exclusively on the purpose of your visit. Yet you are only two hours from the central business districts of both Sydney and Canberra. Lush and green with English woodlands, native bird life, and loads of charm, Bowral is a country retreat for the rich and famous and has that special difference that makes it an outstanding choice.
