Albany: Wind farm, Bridging gaps, nature and meeting people in reflection

I spent a few days couch surfing with a lovely couple. We had some honest conversations about life, ego and fulfillment of dreams. The husband had successfully completed a project in India to clean up towns, affecting 500,000 people. He emphasized the importance of humility when in service to others. I understood that but as… Continue reading

Perth: New Experiences and Moving Around

The last couple of weeks I have been house-sitting a lovely place for a family that have become friends. My job was to feed the cat, the goldfish and to water the garden. I have found myself very tired but have started to gain my energy. I didn’t realize how exhausting the traveling has been… Continue reading

Perth: Friends, New friends and Clowning

I’ve been here a few weeks. Thought I would quickly record some of my impressions.

I noticed how relaxed I am in a new city, have to thank the GPS for that. I just love not knowing where I am and having the voice say turn left in 600 metres. Sometimes it takes me on… Continue reading

Life in Perth and the Future

I’ve been in Perth nearly a week. I have landed on my feet phew. I have a friend who has a tribe of friends here and some have kindly taken me in. I had about $11 in my account, so either that or the street. So far the latter hasn’t been an option (have tent… Continue reading

Life in Melbourne with Friends

I contacted my friend Jane and she texted me if I wanted to stay with her. She is in Heidelberg so it is closer for me to stop. I was feeling very tired as I had been on the road for 12 hours. I picked up a nice bottle of red wine and headed to… Continue reading

Adelaide to Melbourne

I’ve spent the week at a Ministers place and her husband who is a Chaplain. They were Sandy and Geoff and generous allowing me to stay at their place at such short notice. They were very busy most of the time and when they were there they were chilling out watching t.v. So we didn’t… Continue reading

Port Augusta: Staying with Sisters of Mercy

I am at Port Augusta right now. As I drove in I saw the magnificent Flinders Ranges. They reminded me of the Remarkable (range) in New Zealand. I love the contrasts of this country. I am coming in from the desert to find mountain ranges and a river system.

I picked up a few supplies… Continue reading

The woomera of Truth and Peace Making is Not at War

The definition of woomera is a type of notched stick used by native Australians to increase leverage and propulsion in the throwing of a spear. For myself in this title it is the spear of truth I am interested in. My target is real peace or another way of feeling it is harmony.

When I… Continue reading

Travelling to Coober Pedy

I stayed at a little roadhouse/caravan park at the corner of the Lasseter Highway and Stuart Highway. I set up my tent and cooked dinner with music playing from the car. It doesn’t get better than that. I sat with a coffee looking at the stars and just marvelling at this feeling of freedom. I… Continue reading

Meeting My Place in the Sun

I keep feeling these incredible feelings of happiness. It is unbelievable. I just can’t stop smiling. I feel so happy and I find myself repeating it every day. I have to write a poem, but never can my poetry bring you this feeling, as it is pure joy. I don’t need anything but what I… Continue reading
