Though dingoes are technically not a breed of dog and may have wolfish instincts, they demonstrate the same behavior, even in captivity.

“The Creation of Adam” at Sydney Harbour.
The original work by Michelangelo has of course been hailed as a masterpiece, painted by the artist on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in Rome. Much has been written about the genius of the composition and the originality of its vision.
It’s one of the most replicated works of art in the world, inspiring many artists — including this would-be Michelangelo — to create more than “pedestrian” art.
The harbour is really the highlight of Sydney, and there’s no better way to explore it than by taking a ferry.

“There’s a difference between wishing and doing. You can believe in your dreams, but you have to take action to make them happen.”

Wishing is good, specially when followed by a choice to take action, even when it is not easy. Sometimes all it takes is to see the world upside down, and what seemed improbable can become attainable, and what was once a wish can become reality.
