Contemplating


It is so good to have the weekends to revive for the week to follow.

Words to Walk With:
Work and Contemplation by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
The woman singeth at her spinning-wheel
A pleasant chant, ballad or barcarole;
She thinketh of her song, upon the whole,
Far more than of her flax; and yet the reel
Is full, and artfully her fingers feel
With quick adjustment, provident control,
The lines-too subtly twisted to unroll -
Out to a perfect thread. I hence appeal
To the dear Christian Church-that we may do
Our Father's business in these temples mirk,
Thus swift and steadfast, thus intent and strong;
While thus, apart from toil, our souls pursue
Some high calm spheric tune, and prove our work
The better for the sweetness of our song.

  2. Such a beautiful image - just looked back, so many beauties you show. I lived in Sydney for a short while before going to Hobart and then Cairns. I lived in each for 3 years but had a brother in law with a place in the Blue Mountains and visiting him was always a delight. Love your photographs.
