It’s the little things…

Australia feels both very familiar, and different. Happily, I speak the language, but there are differences between Texas English and Australian English. Here, I’m the one speaking with an accent. There’s a look tossed my way when I speak which isn’t bad, it’s just odd. It’s good to be reminded of what it’s like to be different.

On our walks about town, I’ve noticed the house numbers. I don’t know the exact fonts. Some have serifs, others do not. But across the board, the numbers are clean and clear and big enough to be visible from the street. It feels like a cohesive system.

There is a lot of street art, both colorful and subtle. I want to go home and paint the side of my house. When? I don’t know…

And then there are the cute light switches.

Like I said, it’s the little things!

  2. Oh you found a frangipani flower. I love them. My whole bouquet was made of them for our wedding 43 years ago. We are trying to grow them but we live in Orange and it snows here. Have them in pots and put them in the garage during winter.
