Bookshop 1 of 3




I quickly tired of the department stores and headed to something more to my taste ... Dymocks bookshop.  I am thinking of starting a series on books and bookshops ... will have more success with that than city lines I reckon.

  1. It's so sad that the number of bookshops in the city have wittled down in recent years. Hopefully Dymocks is here to stay.

  2. Fortunately most of the good ones are still around.

  3. I love Dymocks, but have never been to their coffee shop. I must admit that nowadays I mostly take the escalator down to "children's". I am prepared to buy adult books online, but hardly ever children's ...

    1. I tried ebooks but at heart I am a book collector and ebooks just are not the same.

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.

Coolibah?

Is that a Coolibah tree beside the abandoned house? Every Australian knows about Coolibah trees because the bush ballad Waltzing Matilda is nigh on our unoffical national anthem but most of us live nowhere near the inland where they grow. Once a jolly swagman camped by a billabong, Under the shade of a Coolibah tree, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me. Waltzing Matilda, Waltzing Matilda, You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me, And he sang as he watched and waited till his billy boiled You'll come a Waltzing Matilda with me.
