Ah the extra benefits of running - you get to experience the crisp cold of an Autumn Canberra! And an added benefit for you who have read this far - the beginnings of "Alastor" by Percy Shelley.

EARTH, Ocean, Air, belovèd brotherhood!
If our great Mother has imbued my soul
With aught of natural piety to feel
Your love, and recompense the boon with mine;
If dewy morn, and odorous noon, and even
With sunset and its gorgeous ministers
And solemn midnight's tingling silentness;
If Autumn's hollow sighs in the sere wood
And Winter robing with pure snow and crowns
Of starry ice the gray grass and bare boughs;
If Spring's voluptuous pantings when she breathes
Her first sweet kisses,--have been dear to me;
If no bright bird, insect, or gentle beast
I consciously have injured, but still loved
And cherished these my kindred; then forgive
This boast, belovèd brethren, and withdraw
No portion of your wonted favor now!


  1. I'm already hanging out for Spring's voluptuous pantings when she breathes!

  2. Photo 4 = Craig? Funny, he looks suspiciously like the fella I am married to!

  3. Lol. What a good memory you have Nadine! Better than mine. I should have looked at the photo again before tagging it!
