then we went exploring..
we knew there was a gate at the back of our property but hadn't been able to access the reserve at the back until we cut the big chain that was around the gate.. dutch husband and his muscles come in handy sometimes!
Joe & I wandered through the gate into what I can only describe as something out of maybe the Lost Forest. He left me there to explore..
I stumbled upon a grove of ancient angophoras..and I know that this in not Druid country, but there was an energy there that took me back eons.
[is there anything more sacred than this?] don't you think that they look like sentinels standing, protecting the space?
and I wandered down a slight slope to find, with a utter delight, a little creek.. I could not believe my luck.. all this at my very back door.. I know that this will be a place to come and sit..[except for the tiger snakes that will most probably share the space with me during summer time]
[my very own little creek]
I feel as if these trees really wanted me there. ... I cannot wait to spend more time with them!
oh & I had something very exciting happen to me while gardening at Villa Maria.. something very sacred. as I stood looking at my gardenias.. a dragonfly flew into the yard.. it flitted here and there.. I noticed it immediately because of the absolutely brilliant gold colour it was - shiny gold, glittering in the autumn sunlight.. it hovered awhile around the yard.. going here and there, like it was exploring, then darted to me, right in front of my face and stayed hovering for what seems minutes but was most probably only seconds..then flew all around me - .. and darted off.. it was one of those times, when you know that you are in the middle of a magick moment. what do you think of that?
