Creativity is in the air. Can you feel it?

Plants are in the ground, seeds are being sown and a spectacular once in a lifetime lunar phenomenon has just graced our skies in Melbourne.

After a time of lull in January it feels like the energy is shifting.

This past month for me has been a gentle easing into the new year. I enjoyed catching up with a close friend who shares my creativity and I was stirred by a rousing musical (The Greatest Showman)  an amazing movie that fuelled my dreams.

I camped in nature, by the ocean and by mountain rivers, I stood under an invigorating waterfall and lay awake at night listening to the peaceful sounds of the bush. I woke to the chorus of birds.

I meditated, journalled and immersed myself in what I love, a bit like dreaming with eyes wide open. Now, though…

Collaborations, Songs and Messages 

My sweet Miri has done it again….added her musical talents to one of my poems…both the melody and vocals are created by Miri.  If that’s not exciting enough, Rob, from For friends without borders gave it that magic touch of added instrumentation…listen you’ll hear the strings and that hauntingly beautiful flute….I cannot even begin to express my thanks to both Miri and Rob and I certainly cannot contain my excitement over another song!!!  We do have plans to make a CD, until then please continue to enjoy our creations here, thank you.  xo

I’m sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts of blogging (if not thebest part) are the connections we make.

In the two plus years I’ve been blogging this space has changed and it now feels so full of life, almost like a cosy cafe gathering with good friends.

I’ve met some amazing people here, a few of you have become real life friends and many more, who I’ve never met, I feel I’ve known forever.

What I do know is that, whether or not we’ve actually met, this blogging community is very real.

In the last year I’ve formed a wonderful online collaboration with the lovely Deb from Once Upon a Hot Flash who writes, aside from her daily gratitudes, beautiful poems and songs.

Miracles, Music and Meditation

Oops we did it again…we dropped another song!! But even more than that, read this beautiful, heartfelt post by Miriam Blaker of Out an’ About. I think we all can relate to her words and message. I join her in wishing you all love and light and a heart filled with music…enjoy!

Life is like an open Gratitude Journal, a story of abundance and hope, just waiting to be written.

This is my journal with pages still blank, dreams still unfulfilled and hopes wrapped up waiting to unfold.

It’s a beautiful, exciting, scary time.
