Cruising in the single lane

Blue skies smilin’ on me

The Kurilpa Point Bridge, voted the world’s best transport project at the World Architectural Awards in Barcelona last year, contrasts against blue winter skies.

BRISBANE’S winter weather used to be beautiful one day, perfect the next. But in recent times it has been showery one day and pouring the next.

So how wonderful it has been this week to see OUR weather back. Blue skies.  Clear mornings. Crisp air. A light westerly. Sharp edges etched against azure, or even cobalt. The sort of days that demand you go outside and do something. Just being under that blue, blue canopy and the trees, buildings, bridges and clouds contrasted against it, makes you happy. It’s the winter weather we always used to boast about. But with drought not yet a distant memory I won’t invoke that final line of  the Willie Nelson lyrics…”Nothin’ but blue skies from now on”.

Even skyscrapers are look better in blue.

I grew up in western Queensland, worked as a newspaper and television journalist, public relations and public affairs officer and freelance correspondent in Australia, the UK, Japan and Saudi Arabia. I have three grown children and two grandchildren. I am retired, but work to keep the brain and body fit, and to stay marginally in touch in our ever-changing technological environment.
