There seems to be a glitch this week with posting the prompt but guessing harmony is this weeks challenge. “The quality of forming a pleasing and consistent whole.” Brisbane’s South Bank does this for me.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  3. A beach in the middle of high rises – that’s harmony in a New Age band.

  4. The fourth picture is amazingly beautiful. I believe the vines are bougainvillea. Could be wrong. I love the way the plant is intertwined harmoniously throughout the archway!

    • You are right Diane. I have watched this vine grow from almost tube stock and each year it gets bigger and more beautiful. The design is perfect for giving shade on the walkway and somehow they have worked out how to keep those lethal thorns from harming anyone.

    It looks like a lovely area. I’ve always been fascinated with scenes from Australia. I guess it’s the “romance from far away places” that beckons to me. But your images are probably as close as I will ever get!
