For many years I would have said that…

live lambs on the ground this time of year

was the fruit of my labours. 

It took countless hours of animal husbandry,

each year to survive winter and have

healthy ewes and lambs as spring approaches.

Nearly thirty years ago my attention turned to education. 

A university education for myself and then assisting to

prepare these students for the real world

with an all day trip to Melbourne

via a three-hour train trip (each way)

as part of the Year 8 Geography curriculum.

This group would be around thirty years of age now.


Now the fruits of my labour are photos such as

this mornings sunrise at Geelong’s Corio Bay.

Don’t know how things are north 

of the equator, but in Victoria

the sun beat me this morning. 

Only the cloud bank helped in any sort of shot.

    • Thank you 🙂 🙂 However, I think the un mentioned last ix years of my working life , or maybe even since moving to the Geelong area have been the most interesting. Working with disengaged for for 18 months then not long after was employed, for six years, to teach computer skills to inmates. I learnt a thing or two in that environment.
