Just Look – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Unique – Word of the Day

“The only one youer than you is you”  Dr. Seuss


Just Look

That we’re different is plain to see,
just look in the mirror,
one species,
so many faces to put to it,
like snow flakes,
not one the same.
We’re all differently abled,
gifted in so many ways,
just needing to unlock,
what is uniquely ours.

I’d love to credit this photo, it’s not mine, I found it on the net in January last year with no credit given. It shows the the disastrous bush fire impacting Yarloop. This historic town was wiped out and so was a major slice of historical evidence.


I took this photo of the Yarloop Museum, in 2009, we had a fabulous afternoon touring the centre (and now in hindsight we’re so glad we made the effort – we went on a whim). It all went in the fire. Yarloop was an old mill town and this was the mill and timber workshops and the locomotive yard for Millars Timber which began circa 1901 and operated commercialy for 77 yrs. The milling operation of 1901 was built on the original site of the first mill in Yarloop in 1895. The buildings were described by WA Heritage as unique in design and world class for its period steam machinery display. The fire was disastrous on many levels, lives and homes were lost, and the historical heart of a museum complex was lost. I guess we can’t hang on to everything, but I still feel sad that it is now lost to us.
