Disappointing Coffee Does Not Need To Spoil Your Day
Winter in Leura
Leura, in the fading light of winter. It was a beautiful day.
Winter in Katoomba II – Maple Grove
From a distance far far away, a pair of magical eyes spotted a magical tree. And the photo taking began…
A Street in Leura
Finally found a day to date Autumn.
Unfortunately she brought her friends, Cold and Strong Wind along, which blew me off a little. But all turned out well in the end.
“The Mortuary Station was built during the years 1868 and 1869, and was officially opened in June 1869.
The building was used as the terminus for funeral trains only until 1938. When the rail funeral business gave way to road corteges and motor hearses, rail services were restricted to weekends and finally curtailed. On April 3 1948, trains were withdrawn and the cemetery line closed. Trains left from the main terminus platforms over the final ten years of the funeral rail service. There being no call for the rail hearse, the Mortuary Station ceased to function in the capacity of its original purpose.”
On A Sunny Winter Day
My favorite kind of winter – the sunny kind 🙂
Autumn in Leura
It’s only mid-April, but some trees already look more than ready for winter. Even though I sometimes feel totally chilled to the bone by the cold air (and I know it’ll only get colder), I love experiencing and living in these different seasons, a testament to nature’s wonderful ways and timing.
(I just hope I still think the same way when it’s in the middle of winter)
I’ve come to appreciate silence as one of the most precious things in this world.
Silence not only from external forces, distractions and temptations, assaulting us from every angle,
but also silence from within, the quelling of our inner desires and restless thoughts.
Sometimes I look up, and catch sight of a beautiful of silhouette of a tree against the vast sky,
Or perhaps a beautiful sunset, absorbing all the negativity in this world as the sun sinks into the horizon,
Or something as simple as wispy clouds floating unhurriedly by…
and I think, if Silence took on a form, this is what it might look like.
And this precious silence would make a great gift, any day 🙂
