Lighten Up By Letting Go – Monday Oracle 6 June 2022

The energies this week support a gentle letting go of the things that have been weighing us down. There doesn’t need to be a struggle or a big dramatic scene. In fact, the very best kind of letting go is one where we decide to let something go with grace and ease. When we let go, we invite new possibilities…

Salt Water Is The Cure

  The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea. ~ Isak Dinesen Hey, Lovelies. This is one of my favourite quotes, and I find it to be true. Everything that has been hard in my life has been helped by tears, or sweat, or the ocean. They are good coping skills […]

When It Finally Felt Like Home

  The home should be the treasure chest of living. ~ Le Corbusier Hey, Lovelies. Something shifted for me in the past two weeks. Finally, the treehouse feels like home. It’s hard to define, but the shift is so strong. I am settled here. Peaceful in a way I haven’t been since early childhood. Perhaps […]

Ocean Immersion

    “I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of […]

Soothing Sounds

  “The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.” ~ Henry Beston Hey, Lovelies, this morning I have already heard the wind in the trees, and rain on the roof. Now? I’m at the […]

Friday Night Drinks

  “One should never, but never, pass by an opportunity to celebrate.” ~ j d malouf Hey, Lovelies. Ben and I had a quiet celebration last night. I made gin and tonics, we ordered in food from our favourite Indian restaurant, and sat on cushions on the floor around a coffee table in the lounge […]

And then the rain came…

Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book. Bill Watterson Hey, Lovelies. When we moved to the treehouse I thought my days of being flooded in were over. At the farm we were cut off from the world by flood waters a couple of times a year, […]

Funny How Quickly Things Can Change

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.  Lao Tzu Hey, Lovelies. I needed to go back down to the city for some medical appointments, and I stayed the night in our Brisbane […]

It was nearly 5pm on Friday afternoon…

May today be the Fridayest Friday that ever Fridayed. Anonymous Hello, Lovelies! It was late on Friday afternoon. I was sitting in my new office in our treehouse, surrounded by work, boxes that needed unpacking, and a massive to-do list that has been neglected this week while I have supported clients through emergencies and held […]

Things I Saw Outside My Window Yesterday

Set wide the window. Let me drink the day. Edith Wharton Hey, Lovelies. I am working from a temporary office in our treehouse – one that looks over a little garden, our long driveway, and the winding path to our front door. All the big views are from other rooms, but oh, the things I […]

Dawn View From My New Office

Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern. Oscar Wilde Hey, Lovelies. This is the view from my treehouse office, just before dawn. Later, the place explodes into colour […]

The Spring That Sprang

They both listened silently to the water, which to them was not just water, but the voice of life, the voice of Being, the voice of perpetual Becoming. Hermann Hesse Hey, Lovelies. We have recently had a magical discovery, here at our treehouse. A natural spring bubbles up out of the ground after rain. We […]

Stopping For A Moment

If you go out for several hours into a place that is wild, your mind begins to slow down, down, down. What is happening is that the clay of your body is retrieving its own sense of sisterhood with the great clay of the landscape. John O’Donohue Hey, Lovelies! I was reflecting on this time […]
