On Wings of Change…

The dream never stopped,

4 years in Darwin.

Upgrading Tiata,

enjoying our life in the nest.

 

We sailed in, our bank accounts in the red'

We sailed in, we were in the red, but we Believed..

 

 

Now we are preparing to head off again.

The wings of change are upon us….

 

ticking off the list

Alert to the messages.

Direction..

A time to let go,

to clear out…

 

Harmony...

Harmony…

dancing on the wind

A time to enjoy,

to appreciate where we are….

 

Such beauty..

 

a time to open our wings

A time to bask in the presence

of a new creation in the making..

Foot note: In around 4 months (Sept 2013) we are returning to the Ocean, our life as cruisers aboard Tiata.

 

Not much of a plan: Whitsunday’s here we come…

 

with much pleasure,

The Beautiful Tiata…

Night at Home..

 

 

Night falls..

Colours fill the dark palette….

I clear my head,

so grateful for the day….

In Reflection I Breathe..

In Reflection I Breathe..

 

As the Sky transforms

I am filled with wonder

I am filled with joy

I am filled…

The veil is lifted

The veil is lifted

 

The passion…

Luscious...

Luscious…

Sizzling..

Sizzling..

 

 

Receive..

Receive..

 

A shared moment.

In nature,

at home..

 

Comfy...

Comfy…

 

Then night decides to give us an extra show,

rumbling from behind,

quick and refreshing,

a good hardy rain,

with lightening and thunder,

an exciting shared moment…

Rapture....

Rapture….

A display from heaven..

A display from heaven..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then…..

Kapow…

we scream..

how delightfully funny..

KAPOW........

KAPOW……..

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. ~
~ Martin Luther ~

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..

 

poise

 

good luck

strength

harmony
