snippet #1

Ensconced in my forever home, a tiny old cottage with timber floors beside a fast flowing river. I’ve decided to brave sharing ‘snippets’ of my travels and life, a very ordinary life. After all it’s probably similar to yours.

My life has been filled with adventure, travels and turmoil, intrigue and insights. Not unlike yours.

The river flows swiftly here yet not as fast as my life. My thoughts remain calm with glimpses of bliss in my meditation. This has been a journey of intrigue and adventure that far outweighs any fiction my vivid imagination could fabricate. Knowing that all the books have been written and our blog reading attention spans are already stretched, I will share the rambles of my life and mind.

Here I will explore relationship dynamics, dip into my spiritual/meditation practices and share some of my travels and insights along the journey. Praying that others might learn from my mistakes. Never delay because life is too short and others will create hurdles along the way.

My hope is that those who’ve had it tough might gain courage to conquer; that those who were blessed with a healthier family might better understand that many aren’t; that those locked into the legal system or any institution will be empowered to find their key to true liberation!

Regulars may not cope with this change in direction and that’s ok. My poetry and photography are good but not gifted, so they will take a backseat. Most are not interested in rambles but I hope to add a key to enhance your life in each post … this one is to dare to step outside the known, share from my heart so that you might glimpse how I got here … I will endeavor to keep it each post to about 300 words and will post less often.

  1. A lovely shot, Kate. I am looking forward to it. I still remember your writeups on adventure of looking for a place to call it “forever home”. Good wishes Kate and a warm hug.

  2. I share this, from Henry Miller, written about 70 years ago, but no less valid today. And possibly appropriate to the direction you are choosing to take ….
    “The aim of life is to live, and to live means to be aware, joyously, drunkenly, serenely, divinely aware.”

    • Goodness! You deleted the responses to this? Really???? Never mind. It’s your blog, as you have said before, and you can delete whatever you like.
      Nevertheless, lest I was misunderstood, I provide another quote from Mr Miller which possibly explains things a bit better …

      “Why are we so full of restraint? Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.”
