Take a Word Challenge - Australia!


I am very honoured that my BFF, Bev, has paid a tribute to me in the challenge this week, choosing a theme that is all-things Australian.  Fifteen years ago I was introduced to the world of personal computers  but there wasn't much happening in those days.  Bev and I found each other on a penpal website and we "clicked" because we are alike in so many ways.  Our thought processes always seem to be on the same wavelength. Bev discovered the joys of the beginnings of digital art and she introduced me to them.  We helped each other to find software and to learn as much as we could about this new medium.  We've come a long way since then!  Thankyou, Bev.  You are a legend.

The beautiful face of a young aboriginal woman and the cave painting overlay on her face were found on Google. The aboriginal culture is an ancient one.  The presence of aborigines in the continent is believed to go back more than 40,000 years.  Cave paintings tell the stories.
