Visiting The Athels, my childhood home, I walk the paddock-tracks where dairy cows once grazed thick pastures, growing fat and sleek. Beside the dry irrigation channel, I pause where we swam and splashed in muddy summer-water released from Waranga Basin. The scattered bales of hay from the top paddock haystack, moulder in the dust of passing years.
