“Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.”~ John Lubbock
There’s a place I go, here at my farm, when I need to think or meditate or to ease my worries.
I go to the river.
It’s a peaceful place, but not empty. In fact it’s brimful with life, and the quieter I am the more I am likely to see.
Sometimes I go on my own. There’s a rock I use as a meditation chair, looking out over the platypus pond. Or I might find a quiet spot and sit on the grassy bank.
Sometimes I take the dogs. They’ll go charging into the shallows no matter how cold it is, and we’ll watch the turtles and the flying fish, or laugh at the water dragons dropping off the banks into the river with a gigantic splash.
There’s always a friendly face, and some wisdom to be had.
Come sit with me a while. And when we’re done we’ll walk back up the hill together and have a cup of tea. Much love to you, Nicole xx
