Back in the swing

Finally getting back into the swing of things - the last couple of weeks have been hectic; trying to work full time to cover two workmates who went away; putting in all my essays and preparing tutorial presentations; and social commitments too. But I feel like I can breathe easy now - and just slowly plot out my weeks of study, work, relaxing, creating and going on excursions. Today was the first morning in a week I've had time to go for a short morning walk. I relish my morning walks (as I seem to always say) but I really do; feeling the cool crisp breeze; the gentle sun warming as it rises; and there's a little spot I go to. A kind of look-out at this rock face that looks down upon Bardwell valley; and you can see the big city-scrapers in the horizon, and wide sprawling parks, pockets of bush; winding train tracks. I like to wake up there; reflect with my eyes closed for a moment or two - then come alive.This was also the first morning in a good while that I've been able to sit down with a pot of tea, a slice of my hardcore banana bread (With bran, honey, oats, olive oil and walnuts) and soak up a little sunshine. It was also a surreal experience filling out the postal address for TWO packages! To know somebody somewhere likes my creations brings a big smile to my face!
And those camellias. They make my feet sing.


  1. somebody here likes your creations... do i bring a smile to your face?

  2. i really hope i do

  3. oh you do. but its a special kind of smile that only you can bring about...

    I hope you're well! I posted a small package for you just this afternoon!
