Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

Lao Tzu


With a little help from my friends….

“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.”

Albert Schweitzer

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 🙂




The Port Fairy Folk Festival has now been and gone for another year.   I loved almost every minute of it, but the highlight for me was  attending the concert given by Buffy Sainte-Marie.  She is the most extra-ordinary woman, and gave a sensational performance – the memory of that night will live on for me…..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m still living out of a suitcase…..  hopefully something more certain on my housing will be resolved soon.  In the meantime, life is very busy, hence my silences on here.  I’ve met some most interesting people, seen some great coastline, and learned about volcanoes!

Last week, while having to detour from my planned route due to road closure, I came across an old cemetery at Woolsthorpe and when I explored it, found this little treasure.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor now, I’ll leave you with this message, and hopefully catch up again soon ♥



Lookin’ out my back door

From sunrise today to sundown, looking out my back door.  Yes, I know, I’m pretty lucky 🙂

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAA gorgeous sunrise, but boy, it was chilly nonetheless.  A taste of what is to come…..

A good excuse to listen to some more Creedence 🙂
