Welcome to November! It doesn’t feel like November where I live in Australia because winter weather has returned. There was even snow visible on the Brindabella Mountain Ranges near Canberra a few days ago. We have a joke in Canberra that winter starts on ANZAC Day (April 25) and ends on Remembrance Day (November 11). It’s supposed to be the start of summer next month, and I’m hoping it will warm up a bit soon.
I did have a taste of summer during October when I attended the Omega Writers Conference held in Kingscliff, NSW, at a hotel resort on the beach that’s only short drive south from Gold Coast. I loved catching up with writing friends in a beautiful venue by the sea. It was also an escape from the rainy weather back home. I took the sunset photo (see above) during my flight home from conference. It was calm and peaceful in the plane above the clouds, and a different story for those on land under the clouds. We’d appreciate prayers for the flooding rains in Australia to end. Our cyclone season in the northern tropics, that’s usually responsible for inland flooding, hasn’t started yet, either. Our inland river systems are overflowing, and many towns in the eastern Australian states are experiencing major flood events.
