After several months off “work” and mostly “off-line”, I am home! And it feels good to sleep in my own bed, bathe in my own bath, have a toilet that flushes, AND have a washing machine 🙂 Oh the things we take for granted!
I was off creating memories for my four year old who is starting school full-time next year. We ventured all the way across Oz to Broome where we felt our feet upon the red dust of The Kimberly (my ancestral home)….then up to Darwin where I first felt her flutter in my womb….then north east to Kuranda near Cairns to run a medicine drum making workshop. I suspect we travelled 20,000 km!
Travelling over the Winter months and thus missing out on the opportunity to hibernate and rest, was challenging at times. There were many moments when I wanted to snuggle under the duvet and watch a video, but instead found myself in the harsh West Australian sun! (I know! “Poor me”!!) So to compensate, this Spring will have an element of hibernation for me, whilst we transition back to life on the East Coast, in a house with 4 walls and a roof LOL. I am being super gentle with myself as I integrate that Super Moon…some past life insights….and also wisdom gained in Sacred Circle with Blessed siStars and brothers. Big times!
I am pleased to say that my daughter grew in so many ways whilst we explored our amazing country. She learned about all sorts of animals, ate bush tucker on Country, developed a love for mud pies, and co-created priceless family memories. Here are a few of the hundreds of photographs I took on walkabout. I hope you enjoy them.
