“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” That quote from Forrest Gump is so apt for this post as, just like a box of Favorites, the year has been (though mostly good) a mixed one. For the current WPC: Favourites theme, here’s a condensed pictorial look back at the year … More 2017 Favourites
I’m sure you’ll agree that one of the best parts of blogging (if not the best 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.

We’re leaving this Sunday for our Central Australia outback trip and packing has begun in earnest. There’s one thing that I’d like to take but I’ll probably leave behind and that’s my trusty guitar. She came with me to the Flinders Ranges and I enjoyed playing a few tunes around the camp fire but I’ve … More Music in the Outback
I’ve done this walk with Harry many times before. Yet this morning there seemed to be something special in the air. Around the misty wetlands the birds were especially loud. Black and white cockatoos, galahs, magpies, lorikeets, they all seemed to be singing in unison. It sounded like a chorus, a concert of nature with … More Music in the Air
Do you ever feel as though the Universe is trying to send you a message? That’s how it’s been for me the last few days.
