2012 slips through the fingers

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 11 Nov 2012 | Views [462]

Great beads of sweat and suffering

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 15 Nov 2011 | Views [583]

Right about now I would trade most things to stop sweating. Not even just now, but say, the last 3 weeks when the 'build up' began. Sure awesome clouds have started to crowd the horizon like a watery caricature of Mars' ... Read more >
