A Long Day

It's nearly Christmas; and supposed to be summer! The sky is full of marbled grey clouds that seem to have lost their direction and have decided to hover in waiting for some seasonal wind to blow them on their way. They cast an interesting backdrop as the summer sun streams insistent light beams through the finer spots and smiles reassuringly across the tree tops.

Today has been so enjoyably long; helping a friend get blogging, visiting my parents who are themselves visiting the region and dropping off, picking up (repeat) my sons at various locations. A long day of flow. Each moment flowing into another. One part finishing in perfect timing for the next to begin. I'm sure that's always the way - just today I have really noticed this perfect unfolding.

And now we are all home listening to the patter of a very gentle rain. It feels like the clouds are bidding us farewell.  Perhaps they will be gone by morning.

Two phone calls and one blog

Today I had two phone calls and a blog to read. All from friends currently in their own travels upon lands of  warmth and sunshine. Descriptions of hot winds, unbearbale midday heat, stunning desert landscapes and 360 degree sunsets warmed me up a little. Their stories touched my heart and prodded me forth into the weather of my own southern WA climate.

Winter! Brilliant and sharp. Todays piercing rain splattered into a frenzy of polka dot micro-puddles before completely disappearng. Blocks of slate grey cloud, approached, encroached, released then left.

And in their wake aquine drops laced the forest undergrowth and shivered to a shimmer in the post-pour breeze. Long delicate fringes of stubborn WA shrubs draped like well trained ballerinas - pointing to the soggy organic ground and whispering wet secrets and promises to their unseen tangle of roots and rich supporting soils.

Reaching low creamy shafts of late day winter sun stroked the pathway of the early storm; softly reassuring and caressing the outer skin of plants, animals and humans - while the light reached deeper in.

Wherever there is weather there is inspiration; and as there is always weather, no matter where we are, then we can say there is always inspiration.

Have a great day wherever you are.

Found a new dawnspace

Another e-presence. This time it's dawnspace.
(Not sure if it's dawn space or dawns pace or if its both: dawns pace in dawn space.)

This time it has been initiated because I want to keep in touch with my friend and inspiration on her family travels at Random Roaming.
Well so I feel that I can teleport at anytime into the beautiful sunsets, sunrises and very real unreal Australian landscapes she keeps posting.
And of course comment on the family ramblings, discoveries and self-questioning.
Perhaps be inspired to do some discovering or rambling dawnspace
I'll keep you posted.
Love me.
