I’m off again after being home for just over a day. I’m looking forward to the warmth of the Midwest region of Carnarvon, our agricultural region, mostly fruit and vegetables. Probably too early for mangoes at the moment, but one can only hope!
This is the main street. Yes, that’s it folks! Finding a parking spot is always a cinch!I remember seeing this male zebra finch in the scrub while driving 80 km/hr. My ability to see birds in unexpected places, still amazes me! But like I’ve said before, if you look for it, you find it.The skies here are awesome. During a storm or …on a clear day, as Barbra sang, “you can see forever”.I found this outside the public toilets at Pelican Point, a favourite place for locals to do a bit of kite surfing. It always makes me smile!
I have so many enjoyable memories of places I visit that I’m always happy to visit again. My hobby of photography has taught me, enjoy and keep what brings joy … which brings me to my goal next month.
My goal is to wean myself off headlines about ‘world leaders’. I no longer want to scratch my head and wonder how and why. The exasperation this brings, I can live without.
As a child I remember we heard the news twice a day on what was then Radio Ceylon; the BBC World Service. You could hear a pin drop during the news as my parents would insist on this. Then we got the newspaper from the city. It was still news when it arrived a day later. I watched an elderly man in Esperance recently who was walking home from the corner shop, with a newspaper rolled up under his arm. A rare sight I thought. The habit of clicking news headlines is now in our fingertips, it would seem. How quickly times have changed.
I want a simpler life. Am I returning to where I started from? If I am, that’s okay with me, because I came from a happy place, where I keep my memories.
Until next time
