It is so cold! I am waiting for my little house to warm up and get cosy after a night out in the Melbourne winter. We went to the Mountain Goat Brewery in Richmond. It was really nice! :-) I feel so grateful to have such lovely friends. How are you?

Beautiful, soulful rain. Sometimes it can be nice to choose an image first. Sometimes it triggers a thought.
