going up these steps felt like i was going to Heaven. & in a way, I did.
on the last day in Bendigo I decided to go to Mass. row after row of red cedar pews. [Mass was held in a little side chapel. there were only a handful of people]
there were little chapels everywhere.. each one even more spectacular than the one before. i just cannot begin to tell you how I was feeling while I walked around [with my mouth open I am sure]
statues made of marble. even Joe was excited when he stumbled upon St. Therese - he knows how close to my heart she is.
and I could not resist kneeling down.. and the photo.. I wanted this to remember how humbled i felt in such a place.
and that was my time spent in the Cathedral.. among my guides & Saints...
[next, we are off to Halls Gap, then to visit my son!]
yesterday at Villa Maria was a brilliant day. I spent most of the day in my back garden. pulling out spent summer vegetables, digging in compost and mulching. Preparing the beds for autumn planting and will allow some to stay fallow until springtime.. regenerating with a lovely feed and mulch. the soil is still not 100% here and it will take quite alot of work to get the worms back. I stirred the comfrey tea - creating a vortex..[part of bio-dynamic theory]. Accompanied by a multitude of dragonfly & citrus butterfliesI am still waiting for the magpies to come visit my garden. I hear them every morning but still they don't venture into the garden of Villa Maria.
