I live in a Divine World

I live in a divine world,

where the sun rises and warms the Earth.

Where at night we are treated to such wondrous beauty.

The colours.

The sounds.

The beauty.

Such gifts are given to us every single day,

if and when we choose to look..


Life gives…

So grateful..












I want to learn more and more  to see as beautiful what is necessary…

then I shall be one of those who makes things beautiful.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche


Strawberry silence













Passion nights



Life is so beautiful.

It’s the living that can be strange.

Just ask the root growing in the mud.

Or the snail thrown back by surf.

Paul Nepo

Pretty sigh….aaaaaaaah.


The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.

Frank Lloyd Wright


Beauty is light, light is beauty..

pink diamonds





from the gone comes the new..



Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty, never grows old.

Franz Kafka

I love birds…

I love birds.

They greet me in the morning,

their glorious cheer welcomes the day.

In fight so free,

dancing on the currents,

not a care in the world.

This morning I gave thanks to all the birds that remind me that I am as free.

Free to fly,

in what ever direction I desire…

On my walk into work today I spotted a family of Curlews,

Throughout the daylight hours they remain hidden under a stand of tree, their colour blends beautifully into the background and when disturbed they freeze..

Striking a pose..

But come night your can hear there ethereal and haunting calls echo into the night.

I feel so blessed that I noticed..




Can you spot the baby??






Strike a pose..

Suspended in time..

12 May 2012 – Pamper Me Day……..

Today I choose to pamper me.

It has been a week that some core issues within me were brought to the surface but I have come through the other side as light as a feather. There has been much I have realised, you cannot save another nor should you try for if you look really close there’s a lesson there for you alone. So I bless and let go with love that what I saw as my tribulations.

What have I learnt, I have learnt that guilt is my ‘thorn’ I even manage to take on other people’s guilt and think it is my own.

But I have nothing to be guilty of I have created the most beautiful reality, I look in wonder each and every day. My world is so so beautiful I am amazed at times at what myself and Rudy have created all by following a shared dream. We are no more well off than anyone else in fact when we sailed into Darwin we were so far in the ‘red’ it wasn’t funny….we were a little slow to move on that’s all.

This past week has also shown me that the one I am closest to, Rudy.  We are so close (we live, work and play together) at times I fail to step back and fully appreciate what it was that which first attracted me him. I saw that too this week and know to he is my divine beautiful mirror, I am so grateful.

So today I relished in the beauty I have created after walking Rudy into work I did a bit of shopping and spoilt myself with the most beautiful flowers. I lovingly pampered my home, I cleared the air and  infused it with music and fragrance then ran myself  a bath and ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Life is all you can imagine it to be and so much more, I am so glad I see that and I see me and I am beautiful…

‎”SATURDAY’S SOUL MESSAGE: Please be aware that as we start the weekend some very OLD energies are arising within people. These go back to CHILDHOOD hurts, so some are acting very CHILDISH & this can be in a negative (EGO – Personality in reverse) way. There are current PLANETARY alignments that are asking us to HEAL at the core/SOUL. So very positive if you can stay in your OWN space & just observe the CHAOS playing out around you. REMEMBER you will attract what you give out, so if you have been angry this week it will take at least 24 hours to shift YOUR CORE into a HIGHER vibration, to see the LOVE around you again, when you ARE feeling & projecting LOVE first. STAY AWAY (as much as you can) FROM people who are projecting hostility. There’s a lot flying around as we head into the ECLIPSES. YOU don’t need it. Be strong. Stay true. Love you.” Elizabeth Peru © Deltawaves 2012

5 May 2012 – No Pressure…No Diamonds…

I do these blogs because……..

somedays I’m not sure why I bother

does anyone look

does anyone see me

and then nature gives me another show of faith

a simply beautiful moment

another diamond…

It fills me with such excitement

I just have to share..

It’s the simple things that are truly magical…

just on dawn we were walking past Skycity, it was all lit up and so so pretty…

Honoring the tree

Thankyou and goodbye xxx

3 May 2012 – Clouds

In life we are at times clouded with thoughts, ideas and beliefs that just are not true.

Yet out of those same clouds an ‘epiphany’….

an utterly delicious idea..

it fills you

it lifts you

it creates joy at the very centre of you

take it

hold it

BE it

Do it

and watch the magic and wonder of one’s divine soul…

1 May 2012 – New Beginnings

The month of May was named after the Greek Goddess, Maia.

She is the beautiful Goddess of rebirth, new growth and new beginnings.

So greet this new day, this new month as a new start to grow from one’s heart and not one’s heads.

new ideas...

A new dawning..




A new path..



"fly free in whatever direction you choose"



Feel the outcome...

Look for a way..




See the opportunities...



Trust in your light..

Trust in your Magnificence..


Ode to the Tree…



For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider,
every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. ~

16 apr – the web of life..

We take our first lesson from the ancient symbol of the Spider by contemplating its web.

Just as the Spider weaves a web, so too must we weave our own lives. The Spider symbol meaning here serves as a reminder that our choices construct our lives.

We have webs popping up everywhere in town


choose wisely, choose with love and choose with joy….


and tonights glorious sunset…..

choose gold

choose sweet

choose peace



Choose Magnificence..

may your choices of today fill your tomorrows with rapture…..

When finches come into our awareness it is a sure sign of ebullient times ahead.

Finches are a sparkly omen of high energy and bright days on the horizon

or Tachiopygia bichenovii

Doubled-Barred Finches

or Branded Finch

 As a creature of the wind, the dragonlfy totem represents change.

It’s iridescent wings are incredibly sensitive to the slightest breeze, and so we are reminded to heed where the proverbial wind blows – lest we run into stormy weather.

Most of the dragon flies were gone today...where do they go....onto the next adventure

14 apr – my day of miracles cont….

I asked for miracles,

I promised to to look out for them

 and I got Miraculous...

the miracle of nature

Darwin Sailing was open day today thought we'd drop in.

Finally became members...wearing out sailing club hats.

I waxed the bedroom the other day...only in a boat..

where our dream begun...


the miracle of clouds

I have had the most glorious day

Thankyou and goodnight xx


I have had the most amazing day

watching life’s miracles…

14 apr – 100 Miracles…

Today I woke before dawn, which I love and in my meditation I asked for 100 miracles today and promised that I would see each and every one.

I did and I have

but oh so many more then 100.

The air is full of dragonflies, each a little miracle.


I love this time of year in Darwin when the southern states are cooling down Darwin is spring to life, you can feel it in the air there’s a feeling excitement after the heat of the wet.

This is when the ‘Darwinites’ come out to play, and play they do…

Morning Sky

the miracle of light..

the miracle of each new day

the miracle of connection

Two very happy water puppies...

the miracle of water

the miracle of light and colour

found my pot of gold...

heaven's colours


A bit of Dragonfly symbolism

Power and Poise
The dragonfly’s agile flight and its ability to move in all six directions exude a sense of power and poise – something that comes only with age and maturity.
The dragonfly can move at an amazing 45 miles an hour,  hover like a helicopter fly backwards like a hummingbird, fly straight up, down and on either side. What is mind blowing is the fact that it can do this while flapping its wings a mere 30 times a minute while mosquitoes and houseflies need to flap their wings 600 and 1000 times a minute respectively. 

The awe inspiring aspect is how the dragonfly accomplishes its objectives with utmost simplicity, effectiveness and well, if you look at proportions, with 20 times as much power in each of its wing strokes when compared to the other insects.  The best part is that the dragonfly does it with elegance and grace that can be compared to a veteran ballet dancer. If this is not a brazen, lazy, overkill in terms of display of raw power, what is?

each one a little miracle...

everywhere you look...miracles...

Rudy did get one to sit on his finger...I wasn't quick enough..




good luck








12 apr – Dragonflies

The change of season has come to Darwin,

the dragonflies are here…

Pure magic….


Rudy had me up at 5.45am for a walk before work

In on the 7pm lock swing.

7 apr – Easter Cruising Log

Quiet Morning 7/4/12

Up with the  rising sun, and a beautiful breeze lasted throughout the night.

Headed over to the west side of Indian Island, put out the crab pot though no luck.

Too hot for them, too hot for us so we decided to head back to Crab Claw, more breeze.

I do love cruising up the river systems, snaking around the twists and turns.

We were treated to an afternoon storm, lovely to cool down the decks.

The birth of the day



I was hoping to do my blog daily, but we were out of range and truthfully I just love watching the world..

Only crazy men and fisherman in the heat of the day......

Tide breathes in.....

Tide breathes out


Mangroves of Indian Island



It's hot and a storm is brewing..

this is what hot looks like...

getting dramatic...




then we were blessed with a cooled refreshed evening…

Set sail 6/4/12 – 730 am

Heading Bynoe Harbour (next harbour SW of Darwin)

As big as Darwin Harbour yet largely uninhabited dotted with fishing shacks and pearl leases and Crab Claw Island resort. A fisherman’s haven.

We sailed flat waters under clear blue skies…

cruising along..

Our new 235watt solar panels working a treat.

We watched as the Full Moon traverse the sky…..

Beautiful sunset, first boat for the season to anchor in Fannie Bay – Only this morning we did an early morning walk and I said to Rudy “won’t be long till the boats are back for the season” and it was us…

We started the day early, nothing like a pre-dawn walk to nourish the soul…
