By pure chance I was driving down a side road in a small country town, and to my surprise came across these white kangaroos in a secure compound at the end of a large country garden. Many decades ago I saw a white kangaroo out bush in a very remote area, but it isn’t a common occurrence.

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”
Today I had contact from a friend of mine, Francis, who is in need of a little help. He gave me much comfort and support in earlier times, and now he’s asking for a hand up.
Illness and a life of hard work has taken its toll on this wonderful man, and walking isn’t something that comes easily to him these days and so he’s been using a scooter to get around outside. However, after years of service, this machine is no longer providing to his needs.
He has started a gofundme page to get a replacement scooter and I’m really hoping it is successful in reaching his target. Please consider helping in this very genuine situation.
Let’s see if we can create some Magic! Thank you 🙂

Already it is October. Spring here.
It was Autumn when I first began living in the Van.
Winter when I began the real travelling.
So the seasons roll on…. just as do birthdays.
Debra Eve writes about Later Bloomers – celebrating those who have found their glory in their later years. Another author is Lisa Congdon who recently published a book titled “A Glorious Freedom” about older women leading extra-ordinary lives.
As an early birthday present to myself, I’ve just purchased the Kindle version of this book. While I do prefer hard copies, given the small space I live in, alternatives must be considered. And so I move with the times – on some things anyway!
During the months on the road, I’ve met many interesting people, visited new places and revisited old haunts and renewed old friendships as well as formed new ones. In some ways its been a bit of a whirlwind. The diary I planned on keeping never eventuated (it may yet though) except in photograph form, and that probably is sufficient to tilt my memory into the right places when the time comes to write about it.
Summer approaches, and with it temperatures that can make it difficult to travel with my four-legged family, especially in the northern areas I love so much.
With that in mind, last month I did some research and active search, and with the help of new friends have found a lovely cottage to rent for the summer. It is within easy access to my beloved Flinders Ranges, so we can still go off for camping when appropriate. I’m not ready to stop this way of life just yet!
However, I have a feeling that I’m being called to explore in other ways…. and who knows what may open up! Hence my book purchase. It may provide clues to the direction I need to go in next.
Now I’m off to read my new book! Who knows what may unfold…..
