Plaques of History

I was strolling along the shopping strips the other day reading the history of the stores...
Well for one thing it takes me back...
it also gave me some lovely unexpected history.
The relos....stories one is told...
In front of the garage are 2 trucks & I zoomed in to inspect ..then wondered what was in the trucks.
The back truck is ELEPHANTS
&
it is 
Sole Brother,s CIRCUS.
How amazing a sight especially in mid 1930's I think...
Either way...

Seats by Water

Wonder what that means...
Do I need to sit and ponder...???
Not Today

I have guest arriving ...
so there has been a lot of dusting & fixing...
in this country house.


My nails are totally shot, frayed would be the best way to describe them...
I know why...I was among other beauty things a manicurist once...


This picture is along part of my walk...
not everyday do I chose to walk this way...
but it is a pleasant walk by the creek..
which is part of the Murray Irrigation system
&
so is loched off in the winter...
The birds wade in for all sorts of delicious treats..
This picture is a little upstream..
those little black dots behind the pelicans are more water birds..
Amazing congregation of wildlife.

I'd like to stay & chat but I think the floors will be dry now...

Books I read....

I moved the books the other week so the fire could be lit without singeing everything in sight..
I adore my books, I like to know they are at hand's reach..
Sometimes I read a title & I think of lovely thoughts..

The sun today is not as strong & vibrant as it was yesterday... pity
I was planning a long sit out in the sunlit windows again today...
...
I have been reminded to check Faith Popcorn's future predictions today.
Never disappointed, 
always much food for thinking...
some very comforting..
I take her predictions as excellent & she has been doing it a long time.
When I still seeing the ICONs of our worlds still toppling..like I could never have believed it would even be when I read that prediction years ago.
I was reminded of her future 2013 prediction for the She trend...
Where stats are already proving how many areas women are replacing men in decision making jobs..and also how some of the male comments reminded me of the political scene in Aus ..
How the political parties do not get women & how we despise the bickering, the childish egos...that romp in front of cameras...
news media that cover it too much..
we are turning OFF... 
Just interesting to ponder on.
See where we all fit regardless of Age & gender....
It is such a turning time for the vintage boomers as they create their own destiny's again & again..
People are defying the retirement trap...
they are thumbing their noses at the age comments & judgments ..
you see
we often just go off & push the boundaries & do & get what we need for the generation we are in.
On saying that, as in the 1960's there is a group who remain as they did then in a rigid conservative & do what is expected of them..not what they want.
Big difference....

Fork in the Road

I was walking..the other morning..had the camera with me...
chasing the kingfishers
Alas, they were busy, flying full pelt along the channel...
Returning to go back to the house..
I walked along this newly made walking track
it is a perfect fork in the road !
Wow 
I wondered how significant this is...
Did I mention I had my fortune read..
well there was a fork in the road card..??
and
I am working on interpreting the visual journal
and I had just found the words 
glued to a page
Forks in the road...
??????????
We'll see....

it Rained On Saturday

 An incredible amount of rain fell on Saturday..
The roses which are still flowering profusely
were laden with raindrops.


As I left the house with camera...
the rose bushes were so beautifully dressed in droplets of water.
I couldn't reach the top of this rose so pointed the camera inside ..
I was so pleasantly surprised how wonderful the photo was.
That is the way I take photos.. point & click !
Before the invention of the digital camera...
I would direct a photo shoot of what I saw the shot would be..
my partner at the time had a multitude of lens & stuff..
Then the wait for development of the photos to be disappointed at times.
The digital camera opened a lovely world for me...
I use it as a piece of my work...
and the photographs like this I do for the blogs..
work as well...
*****
I am having an enlightening few moments in the days with interpreting my visual journals.
I worked through each page I had collaged & took a title that had meaning for me from the words I had cut from magazines & laid on pages along with images.
Then in another journal I wrote each page with the heading
such as Daring to Dream, then all the words & sentences I had clipped & pasted..then came the analysis... what was I wanting, what was I saying...
So I then wrote that... to explain my dreams I would dare to have in my real life.
Very much a nice way to find a new direction... a new path...
whatever...to build the confidence & courage to wander along a new path.
****
It never happens by pure chance ..there is usually a little want behind the chances..we are directed to what we want in life if we do a little ground work & ask...if we don't it seems we are buffeted about in a swirly sea..tossed this way & that and occasionally landing on a nice drift of sand. 
It also does not mean we are closed to opportunities that arise..
some are exactly what it is one wants..sometimes it is not as good as it looks as one thinks it over some more..
A little stroll along a lane way isn't wasted ever !

I am one of those people who absorb the world around me..
think it over.. turn it this way, then that, then put it down & look from a distance..
analytical...
It is so hard wired through genetics & I feel so lucky for that bit.
Took me some time to figure this out..it is the way I have been made 
and the rest was formed as life touched the soul...
