start your week with joy… nature divine

July 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I’ve been seeing websites with gorgeous compilations and collages of photographs, and was dying to be able to do it myself. So yesterday, opening up my pics in Picasa, lo and behold, the answer was right there. Did I have some fun! I can see many an hour ahead wasted spent creating glorious collages. What do [...]

The Importance of Beauty

July 22nd, 2009 · 7 Comments

Sometimes we really are too busy to notice the beauty, hear the melody or appreciate a fine turn of phrase, aren’t we? Sometimes we’re even too busy to notice a certain look in the eyes of someone we love. A look that says I Love You. But it’s those very things, the sunrise that takes [...]

Making time to clear space for living

April 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments

Yesterday morning, with a full to-do list and a busy, busy week, I discovered my laptop would not connect to the internet. The wireless is definitely acting up and I’ve tried everything I know short of throwing the thing out the window. For the sake of my own stress levels, I’ve shut it down and [...]

Sit quietly and be calm

March 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

Sit quietly doing nothing, spring comes, and the grass grows by itself. ~Zen Wisdom I’ve just settled back at my desk after mowing our lawn (with the ride-on mower – we have two acres:) and this saying sprang to mind. Even though it’s late summer our grass is lush and green and seems to grow [...]

a miracle moment

March 19th, 2009 · 5 Comments

It was one of those days. I’d spent most of it in the car, to and fro, an unpaid taxi driver… and the last straw was having to sit and wait for Gorgeous Girl as she finished her ride and then unsaddled, washed, rugged and fed her horse before we could go home. I felt [...]

An Ode to Summer

January 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summers day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock Summer, glorious summer. We complain about the heat and about the humidity. Today I found myself feeling very [...]

Is it the end, or is it just the beginning?

February 4th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Before me peaceful Behind me peaceful Under me peaceful Over me peaceful Around me peaceful ~Navajo Prayer   My summer holidays are over. If you were wondering where I was, then worry no more. We’ve been resting, rejuvenating. Playing games and having fun. Lots of love and laughter. Lots of food and drink. Some sun [...]

Every day is a new day… every year a new year

January 14th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. -Ralph Waldo Emerson ahhh, [...]

Uncovering the Possibilities Beneath the Resolutions

January 11th, 2008 · 2 Comments

  No snowflake ever falls in the wrong place ~Zen Saying No snowflake ever falls in Brisbane, but that’s not the point. I’m thinking about the new year. January and an impending holiday does that.

Why and What do you Celebrate?

December 22nd, 2007 · 5 Comments

Why do you celebrate Christmas? What do you celebrate at Christmas? With my life pared back to bare bones during our renovation and narry a bauble in sight, let alone a tree or piles of beautifully wrapped gifts, I find those two questions popping into my mind. When you take away the tree, when you [...]
