Australia, a bit more fair

Tears flowed as I listened from up in the kitchen as they played "Advance,
Australia Fair" for Cathy Freeman.  Down in the den, Elsa had the volume turned up high and the two of us grinned at each other like a couple of idiots, she at the foot of the steps, describing the action, me at the top, hanging onto every word and note. 

I imagined how it felt to be in Stadium Australia as the whole place sang the words to the national anthem and I am sure, quite sure, that the entire country sang along with them.  I imagined an entire continent united in song and pride.  What a moment.  Go. Aussies! 

Love - Nan
