ON THE BENCH : URUNGA COACH STOP

 

Thought I would 026re-visit the bench in the URUNGA COACH STOP.

A truly sad example of the bench. The structure around it is unmaintained and dirty. The bench is low and uncomfortable.Exposed to elements from all directions except the East. No toilet facilities near to hand. No bus timetable. A place of despair and discomfort rather than a meeting place for holidaymakers. Shame on you, Bello Council !

Take a look at Nambucca Coach Stop.  It had some fine benches as well and the drivers and travellers alike were sitting there yaaning.

It is also situated on the edge of the river. Pretty. Comfortable and clean with toilets.

Day 27: What is your vocation (why are you here on earth)?

Ha ! Back in middle earth again. Only a few more days of Dana’s Challenge then I shall venture out into other realms in a hope that there is some challenge which attracts me.

I have no idea why I am here on Earth but I have a couple of hundred more words to write in this post. This is like being back at school attempting to channel some kind of a correct response.

I ma sitting in a house looking out to sea. Somewhere to my right is a lighthouse. I can’t see it but I know that its there. Rather fond of lighthouses, so I am. This one is squat and white. They should be white. It overlooks a beach where people take camel rides.

I don’t think those two things are part part of my vocation on earth, but they might be. I do like lighthouses as I said and I really like the image of the CAMEL. I like Midnight at the Oasis.

I have thongs on as well. I don’t think they’re part of my vocation but they might be. I have never been a thong wearer – Aussie icons though they may be. I have only taken to wearing them since Christmas Day 2009 when I bought a pair from a service station  at Halfway Creek.  Halfway between Coffs and Grafton. That could well be part of my vocation.  Halfway to someplace.

I am very silent. Very inert. Very eremite.

Why on earth am I here ?

Topic #28 If stranded on a desert island, and could only bring one music album with you, which would it be? What is it about this music that never gets old for you?

Topic #28

Here’s today’s topic, brought to you by Plinky.com:

If stranded on a desert island, and could only bring one music album with you, which would it be? What is it about this music that never gets old for you?

WINTERSUN 2 004 IZZY SPRAYEDLess than a month into this challenge but still struggling with the topics and giving myself only till end of January before I diverge from this path and find a different direction. I have now actually taken a look at Plinky and I like it but don’t think much of it for guided blogging.

For me, I wouldn’t be taking any music to a desert island. I have a musician for lover so I would take him and he could sing and play mandolin for me.
