Homecoming


A state border is after all just a line in the dirt so why should it make such a big difference?  The houses grow stilts.  The roads get narrower.  The way towns are laid out have a familiarity to me a country town Queenslander by birth and upbringing.  I have never been to Cunnamulla but I feel strangely comfortable.

I find it a little disconcerting.  I didn't expect this trip to be a homecoming.

  1. I've always liked those Queenslander houses, they are built for the climate, not like our brick ones.

  2. I like Queenslanders too. But I suspect they would be a little too airy in the winter time.

    1. You are right, they are way too airy in the winter time. The mornings are quite frosty and chilly even though the days are generally warm.

  3. Once a Queenslander always a Queenslander. I grew up in Sydney and when I visit familiar suburbs it feels like a homecoming to me too.

Reading

The tiny camera's tiny battery ran out so I went back to my reading. The note with the sculpture says "This bronze and copper sculpture contrasts a series of small human forms with the architectural weight of on oversize staircase. The artwork has a philosophical aspect by reflecting on the effect of reading on the spirit - 'the more I read the smaller I feel'." Crikey, I dunno about you but if reading made me feel like that I'd stop.

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.

Royal Hotel - Ganman

And I wrap up this trip with the Royal Hotel at Ganman.
