The Superb Lyrebird is also called "Weringerong", "Woorail", and "Bulln-bulln" in Aboriginal languages.
Ex-Cyclone Debbie has brought an early touch of winter weather to South Eastern Australia. Grey Nomads are making plans to head north to the warmer regions. But where? I know of several who have decided to skip Queensland this year due to the cyclone damage and flooding. Many are making emotion-charged journeys to places such as Vietnam where they once served in the armed forces. That would be hard. although the natural beauty of the mountains would soften the pain of some of the memories.
I'm spending winter here in Victoria, in south-eastern Australia. I hope to get my exercise reading on a treadmill and attending hydrotherapy sessions at the pool. I have to admit I used the summer heat as an excuse not to exercise, and I've run out of excuses. I never have to motivate myself to write and paint, creativity is in my blood. I hope to master learning how to do videos of my art in progress over the next few months.

The old men, cattle king Alan Fife, Aboriginal Elder Kanga, and the criminal Ray Buckram, face each other.
