I can feel it in my bones

"To understand the immeasurable the mind must be extraordinarily quiet, still."
J Krishnamurti

I have a vision,
a heart to follow,
a head to make sense of it, when the head can,
veins to house the blood that returns to my heart, ready to be fed by the fire in my belly, to run through my body again.

The tree of life
the world of opportunity
the global village
the universal language...

they are all much, much bigger than me.

But that's not to say that I can't improve them...
O yes-sir-eee... I can.

My thriving children inspire me everyday as they bloom. Not in their words or actions necessarily - though they may delight me - but more in their blessed journey.
They are so beautifully held in their schooling.
They are nurtured in their home.
They are celebrated in their neighbourhood, for being spritely children.

A life amongst spotted gum trees - and lorikeets and kookaburras and goannas and possums, and eagles and water, and sting rays and crabs and fish - is one of the best offerings we have brought to them.

The mission that getting home often requires, is one of best gifts we've given to ourselves.

(Thank you, lovely husband, for continuing to inspire me)
