Australian summer is wonderful at times but it can come at a cost.
These last few weeks I have been dreaming of a winter I will never have here in Australia. I dream of little white particles falling from the sky into my suburban home, cooling the surface of the pool until it turns to ice. I dream of an open fireplace and hot cups of cocoa and warm socks that have grips on the bottom so I don't slip on the tiles like I always do. I dream of blowing on the glass and watching my breathe blur the scene in front of me before I continue to draw a snowflake where it once lay.
I know much of the Northern Hemisphere is wishing for warmer weather right now, but a selfish part of me wishes that I could have that weather, that snow for just one day. If just for one day of the year, Australia could have constant snowfall. Everyone could take a day off from school or work and be with their families and build snowmen and relive memories that only existed in their dreams.
Oh what a precious moment that would be. If only.
