Things to be thankful for…

“Take time daily to reflect on how much you have. It may not be all that you want but remember someone somewhere is dreaming to have what you have.” ~Germany Kent This morning I’m counting my Blessings. Such a simple thing to do, and it always makes me feel richer. I like to count them […]

Weathering the Moment

“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” ~ Langston Hughes Do you ever get stuck in your head? I found myself there last night. The sort of stuckness where you’re oh-so-tired, and know you should be getting to sleep, […]

What Quiet Sounds Like

“On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.” ~ Jack Kerouac, Big Sur It’s late at night. Or to be more accurate, early morning. I’ve […]

Afternoon Walk on the Farm

“For [Jane Austen and the readers of Pride and Prejudice], as for Mr. Darcy, [Elizabeth Bennett’s] solitary walks express the independence that literally takes the heroine out of the social sphere of the houses and their inhabitants, into a larger, lonelier world where she is free to think: walking articulates both physical and mental freedom.”  […]

Was it all a dream?

“Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.”~ Khalil Gibran It’s 5am. I woke this morning in my own bed. The cool dawn air from the windows flung wide is fragranced with lemon blossom, jasmine, green grass and rich earth. It’s a lush smell. A rich smell. So dense I can almost hold it […]

“We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies.” ~ Shirley Abbott I picked up a stone yesterday and put it in my pocket. I walked on a […]

One of those mornings…

“Have you ever heard the wonderful silence just before the dawn? Or the quiet and calm just as a storm ends? Or perhaps you know the silence when you haven’t the answer to a question you’ve been asked, or the hush of a country road at night, or the expectant pause of a room full […]

Favourite Things

“Sunday is the golden clasp that binds together the volume of the week.”  ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow It’s Sunday, and for me it’s a day of favourite things. Meditation first, before the sun comes up, with my Mala beads and Tibetan Bowl. A short walk around the farm with Harry while we wait for the rest […]

Homeward bound!

“And when the day arrives I’ll become the sky and I’ll become the sea and the sea will come to kiss me for I am going home. Nothing can stop me now.” ~ Trent Reznor The ute’s all packed, it’s not quite dawn and we’re heading home to the farm. I’m filled with a quiet thrill. […]

You See Dem Owls?

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” ~ e.e. cummings So, back to my story about the Kimberley owls… Have you ever wanted to run away from yourself? Twenty years ago or so, when I arrived at this remote cattle station at the top end of western Australia – a […]
