Just Some Thoughts On Being Australian
As I was driving along today I heard an song on the radio that made me feel very Aussie. Unfortunately the heat has robbed me of my memory so I can’t tell you what it was nor put up a You Tube video if it. Instead you can have this awesome song, the original is an old favourite of mine by Paul Kelly. This one is a remix
Following the discussions we’ve been having here it got me thinking what do I mean by “Aussie”? Why is it that certain things, a song, a smell, a taste, remind us of our country and cause us to feel patriotic? I feel Aussie when I hear a song like this one on the radio, when I’m at a BBQ chatting, drinking and enjoy the sounds and smells. I love this country when I wake up early and listen the birds chirp and when I go to the beach on a warm summer afternoon. There are so many emotions that are stirred up by all these experiences.
Fellow Aussies, I’d love to know what being as Aussie means to you! Please email me thebloggingaussie.at.gmail.com or leave a comment here with your thoughts. Hopefully there will be a few of you who who want to share so I can compile a list on the blog here for you all to see.
