Sunset Lake Macquarie – June 30, 2016

A chilly sunset as I pondered the meaning of life. No answers.

Of late I’ve had low photo mojo. The fading light however, caught my attention as I started to retrace my steps. Perhaps you’ll like it.


Word for today;    Images – there for the taking

July 2, 2016 and we’re off again. An Opoly to the Left, an Opoly to the Right.

Off to halls, tents and schools. Running the gauntlet of last minute campaigners thrusting flyers in your face, lining up to have a line drawn through your name.

Betting slips, large and small, given numbers with pencils behind hunched shoulders in a cardboard booth. Your vote is cast.

And the winner is?

Not many to choose from really. Two contenders. Two.

I suppose that two parties is better than one, although it can often be difficult  to spot the difference. Besides, one party only would be a monopoly, a dictatorship, wouldn’t it?

So we have A Labor-Opoly labour

and A Liberal-Opoly.

Together they form a Duopoly. That’s pretty good for Australia, is it not? Although it does sound a little like illegal trading.

Word for today:    Duopoly  – preponderant influence or control by two political powers.

The Pointer Sisters – Should I do it.

It’s just good to listen to this, which is what I’m doing while typing. I’ll be posted before it finishes.

Word for today:       Memories – this is one of them

A blast from the past which often pops into my head in the mornings. An old but pretty interesting video with guys in checkered bell bottoms and girls with jeans to the armpits.

The song plants me on the seat of my trail bike heading for work in Cairns, QLD in 1974. Hand in hand with the bike ride are images of Darwin after being smashed by Cyclone Tracy on Christmas Day, 1974. A contrast of mornings.

Words for today;        The Moir Sisters
