Finding our Special Spaces

We all need to find our special spaces. The places where we can just be. Perhaps even soak up the peace and calm in natural settings. (And sometimes we just need to imagine them!)

Birds at the Billabong

Or even spending time by the local billabong — listening, watching, and just being. That’s where I was this morning.

B is for Bee, and for Beautiful

Busy Bee 23 April 2017

B is for bee, and for beautiful. There’s joy to be had from simple moments in nature — like watching bees in a bush of rosemary as the autumn sun shines. Another beautiful relaxing day; a day off from writing.

Bee-autiful

The simple beauty of an Australian summer: my crepe myrtle in full bloom, and all the visiting bees. Bee-autiful!

The crepe myrtle breaks into bloom each December and then blooms for the rest of summer. It’s such a treat to see — right by the front door.

The perfect place to take a break from writing, and ponder.

Delicate Wings

What delicate wings. What fragility, yet strength. Another inspiring spring delight. Wouldn’t it be grand to be able to fly!

What a wonderful way to spend a break — after hours in front of a screen — discovering simple joys to be found in the garden.

Such are the musings of an up-to-her-neck-in-work writer.

Natural Beauty

Spring Clivias Sep 2015

Spring is such a wonderful time of natural beauty, of slowing down, of treading carefully, of celebrating nature — all those brilliant blooms in the garden.

It’s also a great time to start a new writing project!
