Eccentricity


Out on the opal fields it is hard to find any building we might call normal. But there are a few.

  1. Golly, that final house is a turn-up for the books. Eccentric is a good description. I wonder, too, about the percentage of mental-health issues, and the resort to alcohol and other drugs, either as a reason foir starting this style of life, or a life-style that people slide into.

    1. There are always people who like their independence and without the need to live up to city values or city expenses can just get on with life their way ... digging the dirt all day would not be exactly loafing.

  2. You've been busy, Joan! Your photos tell a great story. They have me itching to get out there and experience it for myself. :)

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.
