LATER IN THE DAY: MELLOW YELLOW.

A PICNIC AT THE POOL.

036

YAANING ON :

Its nighttime now with a full moon in a clear sky. Its been all sorts of a day, this one has.  Its  our Little One’s 2nd Birthday and it has been a sunshiny, warm day. We had a picnic at the Pool and her Mum and Dad baked and decorated the finest cake ever. These are the days I have been waiting for. The ones which suit me best. Warm and wet. Eating cherries and talking and playing with little ones. 4 generations there were.

It was a tragic day as well because early this morning at URUNGA on the goat track road they call Australia’s Highway No. 1, a huge truck collided with a utility and then ran off the highway and into 3 houses and killed a young boy who was asleep in his bedroom. The Ute driver was killed and people are injured – all in our little town. 

I went to look at the wee flat I might be moving into part time but didn’t get access today so I shall see about it tomorrow. And at the same time that I was going on with an adult form of separancing, the Man I Live With was up early and getting ready for our day with our Loved Ones and the Cheery Redhead. And way down South was the rest of my little family, singing Happy Birthday over the telephone.

Seems to me, that life is not very linear anymore. If you knew the stories of the people who were gathered at the Pool today and their mutual histories, I don’t think you would be arguing with me.

Now, I sit down to watch TV and on comes BRAN NUE DAE. I have resorted to posting Videos because I know a lot of you are way far from here and I am hoping you might like some of the vital exuberance and bubbling laughter of our Country.

7×7 LINK AWARD FROM DADIRRI DREAMING TO ME

7x7-blog-award11

I was nominated for the Seven x Seven Link Award by http://dadirridreaming.wordpress.com/

About dadirri dreaming :

For as long as I can remember I have wondered about the ‘spiritual’ side of life. My explorations have gone in many directions, but now I am content to do what little I can to bring light and love to those around me.

We live near the sea, surrounded by bushland and beautiful wild beaches. Kangaroos and wallabies graze all around the house, red bellied black snakes hunt the frogs in the dams, water lilies adorn the pond in their season. With my two year old granddaughter I sit and watch dragonflies, while birds dart in out of the thick native flowering shrubs we planted to create a habitat for them. We play hide and seek behind the tree trunks, we laugh and exclaim, a lot!

There are three yoga classes in the Barn at present, my chance to explore presence, being, breath, stillness, movement as I guide each group in gentle yoga. I am always learning, amazed at the wonder of life, the quest for consciousness. My favourite yoga teachers are Donna Farhi and Judith Hansen-Lasater.

Blogging is a new joy, giving me an opportunity to think, observe and investigate, finding nourishing titbits to share with others. Thanks for joining me here at dadirridreaming!

Lets see how we go :

To accept the nomination for the  Seven x Seven Link Award I need do the following:

1)   Tell you something about myself that you probably don’t know.

2)  Come up with seven of my own blogs one for each category.

  • Most Beautiful Piece
  • Most Helpful
  • Most Popular
  • Most Controversial
  • Surprisingly Successful
  • Most Underrated
  • Most Pride Worthy

3)  Nominate 7 more people for this award. So here goes!

__________________________________________________

1) You probably don’t know that I had all my teeth extracted at the age 0f 35. No, that’s not good eno0ugh because on the offchance that someone who actually has met me reads this, they very well could know that. They might not know that the dentist’s name was Ashley Cooke.

You probably don’t know what blood type I am. I haven’t the least idea.

And I don’t think anyone knows that I I once drank laudanum. Hang on. Tony probably knows that. Help me out here. I don’t think anyone knows what happened to my pointer finger on my left hand. I can’t bend it. Haven’t been able to for about 4 years. There’s some arthritis in it but that doesn’t explain the total lack of movement.  I don’t know what happened to it and noone else seems to.

2. A LOOK AT MY OWN BLOG POSTS.

Now seven bloggers to share the award with, in no particular order!

Whoa. Here’s a challenge.
