I think repeating patterns are soothing.


  1. I guess (or: I remember) sometime in the last years having mentioned that my father was a railroad employee. I often visited him at the station as a child and they had exactly the same ticket "system" or "dispenser" - and almost the same kind of tickets.

  2. repeating patterns make good photos too.

  3. love the patterns.. My dad was a ticket seller for many years, and those cardboard tickets bring back so many memories of him...

  4. Hadn't thought about them being soothing as such, but I know they are most attractive to the eye.

  5. The PTC was not all that long ago, either.

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.

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.
