THE WINDMILL


I have driven past this windmill in my car  hundred's of times on Myocum road. Easy to miss when driving into town at 80kph. I bicycled past it the other day and stopped.

Looking at this windmill and the old hand made rough sawn fence, the green paddock,cows,sky,the tree covered hills, the whole scene became a portal to another time and era.

The cool wind touched me, and everything slowed down and moved at such a different pace. Horse and carts once made there way past this windmill, slowly making there way along a rough narrow dirt track going into Mullumbimby. Everything slowed down, and everything could be felt. The 1920's was there for a short time and I loved it.

It's not the 1920's anymore, but the beauty is still here just as it was then.
