“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” Terry Pratchett Hey, Lovelies, I know. So […]

Boobs!

“The truth of the story lies in the details.” ~ Paul Auster   Sorry. I couldn’t resist. When else would I get to shout ‘Boobs!’ as a title for a blog post?

The Jesus God Mary Sky

“Even After All this time The Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me.” Look What happens With a love like that, It lights the whole sky.” ― حافظ   When I lived in the Kimberley many years ago, we would often experience the most amazing skies on a routine basis. One very early morning, […]

Meditation – Taking Energy From Trees

There is a simple meditation that I do sometimes, when I feel the need to be strengthened. It is something my Aboriginal Aunties taught me to do. Let me show you how to do it too. Find a tree. It could be a big tree, or small, gnarled or straight. Stand where you can see […]

Girl, stop askin’ dem questions. Listen!

“Very few beings really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal or immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds — justifications, confirmations, forms of consolation without which they can’t go on. To really ask is to open the door […]

Walking Through The Fire…

“Things get bad for all of us, almost continually, and what we do under the constant stress reveals who/what we are.”  ~ Charles Bukowski, What Matters Most is How Well You Walk Through the Fire It’s the hardest thing I’ve done, this path I’m walking right now.

The Sound of Smoke

Circle in the Dust

“There were once two sisters who were not afraid of the dark because the dark was full of the other’s voice across the room, because even when the night was thick and starless they walked home together from the river seeing who could last the longest without turning on her flashlight, not afraid because sometimes […]

“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh The next installment of my Kimberley Story… […]

Hey Sister, You Okay?

I was looking forward to Saturday. In the last few weeks I’ve supported a friend through the end stages of terminal cancer, holding her hand til she passed, ridden the roller coaster of supporting an addict in recovery, and juggled my daily work and writing.
