Water Interlude


I was looking forward to seeing Chifley Dam thinking perhaps it would be a nice picnic spot like other lakes and dams I have shown you -- like Lake Canobolas, Carcoar Dam or maybe Lake Windermere. When I arrived I was disappointed, flat and boring. But as it turned out the interplay of light made it rich source of images so you are going to get more over the next few days.

Musing:
The image has an Japanese feel about it so I am including Matsuo Basho's famous hiaku
"The old pond;
a frog jumps in —
the sound of the water.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared.

Musing:
The Pasture by Robert Frost
"I'm going out to clean the pasture spring;
I'll only stop to rake the leaves away
(And wait to watch the water clear, I may):
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too.

I'm going out to fetch the little calf
That's standing by the mother. It's so young,
It totters when she licks it with her tongue.
I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog - My Bright Field - to record the delights of my new life adventure.
If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.
