Eternal flame

Eternal Flame in Pool of Reflection

As we strolled along beside the bronze wall plates the names didn't move me.

"Look there's money in the pool", I yelled as I hung over the wall looking into the shallow water of the reflecting pool.

"Get down," said Mum

"Can I have a penny so I can make a wish?"

"Shhhh," said Mum, "Don't be noisy. People come here to remember all these people who died."

Reluctantly, I quietened down.


  1. Does this still happen today ... the public shushing? Probably much less ...

  2. I love it - just what any kid would say ;-)

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.

Over the road from the rose gardens in Bendigo, a beaut second hand bookshop.
