Work is an activity

At work they are fond of saying "work is an activity not a location". Well taking this mantra on for fact we embarked on a trip early with me working on my laptop in the car. Mobile broadband and smartphones are wonderous thing but after sending about my 100th email for the day and answering yet another phone call I looked out the window and realised that hundreds of kilometres of beautiful countryside had rolled by.  I slammed my laptop shut ... I would finish my day's work in the evening.

  1. Look at the height of that pasture! There are parts along the north coast rail line where cows have neither legs nor bellies!

  2. Must be a paradise for cows, ;-)

    The photo is a nice contrast to your words about work.

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.

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."

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