I've been in some of the dodgiest places that I wouldn't even go to in Australia, but still, courage takes us to the edge of the unknown then drops us off safely back home wherever that is...Read More
I am just a piece of fluff Blowing in the wind
We all break down
We blow around
Until it rains
Not so good, for fluff
I am now
Just a piece of dust
Sweep me up
If you feel you must
But I’ll float around
And around some more
No more, no less
No different to the rest
Hey there friends,
Have you been giving attention to world events, to the ups and downs - floating around, going to ground.... Grief for some, anger for others, abuse and nightmares can be found everywhere I look lately.
It is a busy place just now, don't lose your head in the news and views of others.
Now and again, take yourself off on an adventure of the mind....
Imagine yourself floating away on a cloud, being outside makes that obviously easy.
Or take yourself into the Earth, following the path of the intrepid earth mover.
The adventures can lead you to leave the stresses behind, often where they belong, behind you and in the past.
Change your attention, change your life, with a little imaginary travel.
Lots of love

When I read of the chance to walk the sacred paths and visit the sacred sites of Assisi on a 14 day pilgrimage, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.Read More
It was precious, it was a moment I shall never forget. As a mum I have seen my kids do similar things, but as a grandma I have had the time and the grace that comes with time to really see it.Read More

All experience is good, it may not be seen as such, but they are like the furnace to the gold, they bring about the brilliance. Meditating on an issue or your experiences can bring clarity. But, saying 'they are all in the past now' may just be leading you up the garden path.Read More

This post today continues the Tuesday Wellsprings Life Series.
Life is not all beer and skittles is it? And yet, with media showering us with 'the right way to look, to feel, to dress, to be' we can be left feeling so inept when faced with everyday troubles that everyday people just don't seem to suffer...Ha!
When faced with troubles,
You can feel like you are facing a storm
When faced with a storm,
Aim for the eye of it, shoot straight
In the eye of a storm you will find
A calm centre of retreat
Troubles are more easily dealt with there
The storm will pass
And the rainbow will once again shower you with colour
Into each life some rain must fall, but too much is fallin’ in mine Into each heart some tears will fall, but someday the sun will shine('Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall' - Fisher and Roberts - sung by Ella Fitzgerald 1944)
Storms and troubles are a natural part of life, every body will have the ups and then the down days.
Shoot straight into the eye of it and stand true, no matter how much rain falls nor how many tears you shed, a way can be found if you place yourself at the calm eye of the storm to think things through.
Seek the help of a trusted friend or a counsellor if the storm seems too hard, don't suffer alone.
Hope your day is as calm as can be, till next time, much love
